Teaching since:

I'm an experienced and enthusiastic cello teacher and performer. I enjoying sharing my love for music and the cello (and piano!) with others. I feel that I learn from my students, as well, and am always interested in expanding my teaching to accommodate their unique musical interests and strengths. It's also very rewarding to see a student's sense of accomplishment, newfound freedom, and individual expression, as they progress on each step of the learning process.

I strive to be as clear as possible in my explanations of technique and welcome questions and observations from my students. Together with the student, I make sure to overcome any obstacles that interfere with musical expression. Also, I emphasize that musicality is the real of focus of cello, rather than just "playing the notes". Finally, the unique artistic perspective of each student is very important to me. I tailor the musical pieces and approach to each student's interests and individual personality.
