Hello cellists! My name is Lenna and I am pleased to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2011 and have loved helping my students improve their tone, learn better sight reading skills, and become more relaxed around their cellos. I studied chamber music for four years under the world famous Chiara Quartet. My favorite books about classical music are: The Art of Practicing and Just Play Naturally. I'm a kind and patient person and my teaching style is focused on comfort and emotional vibrancy in performance. I look forward to guiding you through some wonderful musical experiences.

I am an adult beginner on cello, but I play a number of other instruments reasonably well. Lenna is attentive to my specific needs and adapts what we work on to focus on technique such that I don't feel, as I have with some other teachers at times, that I am dragging my feet a little bit. She is very patient and kind while also providing me with the constructive input I need. I would highly recommend her for adults, and I can see her working very well with children as well given her kind and patient manner.

I tried several cello instructors (one of them from Juilliard) and Lenna was the one I stuck with for years. She's amazing.

I highly recommend her for her compassion, kindness, patience, and ability to customize instruction based on what you need. Give her a shot!

Lenna is a kind a nurturing teacher. She is a careful listener and pays attention to her students' long term goals. I would highly recommend her for anyone interested in pursuing learning music as either a first time or experienced musician!

Lenna is incredibly patient and kind. As an adult amateur, she really took the time to know me to cater to my preferences and my previous experience.
