I am a professional cellist with more than 20 years of performing experience and teaching professionally for more than 10 years. I completed my Master of Music at Boston University College of Fine Arts School of Music with a scholarship. Additionally, I received a Professional Studies Diploma which is the highest level of performance at The New School Mannes School of Music which is a top conservatory in New York with scholarship as well.

I am performing with top orchestras at the notable concert venues in the US every year, such as Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center as both soloist and principal cellist with various orchestras. Now I am the principal cellist of The Asian Cultural Symphony Orchestra. In 2017, I presented and produced my own charity recital at Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall with not only classic music with piano but also trios with Chinese traditional instruments for the world premiere pieces which composed by the famous Chinese composers. All the proceeds of the concert are donated to UNICEF. My charity concerts tour spread across more than a dozen states and cities of the US. I have been interviewed and reported by newspapers, magazines, news, TV programs and other media at home and abroad.

I would highly recommend Meixu to everyone who is looking for learning cello. I just finished my ten lessons and my experience has been wonderful. I'm an adult who never learned cello before and have been waiting to play cello for years. Thank Meixu who make my dream comes true. Meixu is incredibly nice, positive and encouraging. She is good at reminding me to enjoy the music while challenging my practice to the next level.

Meixu is absolutely a great cello teacher! This is my first cello class ever and she made me even dream about to become a professional cellist like her. She is not only a truly patient teacher but also very detail-oriented instructor. I went to her apartment to take the class. It’s a very nice space. We start from very basic musical knowledge to elementary level cello practice. She got such a natural fun personality so it does make me feel very comfortable and confident to continue learn from her. Highly recommended her class!
