About Quinn L.

I began her cello studies at age of eight and won my first cello competition at ten. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Cello Performance at The Shanghai Conservatory of Music in China and Master’s Degree from University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) where I received a full scholarship.
As an orchestra musician, I has served as the principal cello and cellist in a variety of orchestras such as the Portland Columbia symphony, The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Portland Cello Project, San Diego Symphony Orchestra, Inland Valley Symphony, Hangzhou Philharmonic Orchestra and Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra in China. I'm an active chamber musician and have been invited and performed in several music festivals in the United States and Asia.
In addition to music performance, I'm very experienced in teaching cello as well as working in musical administration. I was a cello instructor at the Music Academy of San Diego, Old Town Academy, Help You Achieve Academy, Opus school of Music, Oregon Music Academy and Musicality Network. In the area of administration, Quinn was the executive assistant of the Great Wall International Music Academy, the Virtuoso Music Academy. Work as the executive assistant at the Bravo! International Music Academy since 2016.
Aside from music, I have a great interest in fashion, travel, fine food and I also work as director of operations at Abroad & Future for International Education Programs.

We are loving cello with Quinn! We had her in person before COVID and now online. She does a great job of guiding the learning process and working with the student (my daughter as an individual)

My 9 yr old daughter began cello lessons with Quinn about 2 weeks before lockdown started. I was worried that online lessons wouldn't work out, but Quinn has been amazing. She's great at explaining everything so that my daughter understands, and she pushes just enough to keep her interested without being overwhelmed. She also answers questions promptly by email when any problems arise. I can't recommend her highly enough!
