About Monica D.

Monica teaches: Ages 6 and up
Special needs
Teaching since: September 2011
Last sign in: More than two months


My desire to grow my private studio comes from my passion in sharing my love for music. My hopes are to continue igniting the spark of creativity in children of all ages. Through my teaching, I strive to instill a sense of discipline, appreciation, and passion in my students.
I am 100% committed to providing customized lessons to carter each and every students needs that I have. My students learn more than just learning how to play the cello, they learn how to become self sufficient and how to unlock their creativity.
