I am a professional cellist with a Bachelor's of Music in Cello Performance from UC Santa Barbara. In addition to my studies at UC Santa Barbara, I have performed in masterclasses for Yo-Yo Ma, the Danish String Quartet, and Enrico Pace. I have also performed orchestral, chamber, and solo cello music throughout the United States, Canada, Austria, Czech Republic, and Taiwan.
As a cello teacher, I have taught beginning, intermediate, and advanced students from ages 5 - 72. Some of my students have gone on to study music at the collegiate level at institutions such as Cal Arts and NYU. Through my teaching experience, I am able to provide my students with a well-rounded teaching approach, and I tailor lessons to most effectively help my students meet their individual goals.
Providing private instruction to students of all levels.
Thomas gave lessons to my daughter and I have never been happier with her improvement over the past two months. He was a great help during my daughter's honor orchestra auditions.
My cello lessons with Thomas were some of the most fun experiences I've had with music. He is incredibly clear and encouraging. He helped me discover the joy of playing the cello, and I am forever grateful for that!
Thomas was incredibly flexible and punctual with our lesson times. Through three years of lessons with Thomas, I was able to develop key technical skills and confidence in my playing. He takes his time when I run into difficult passages and is incredibly encouraging. Definitely recommend!Show More
