I am currently a Doctoral candidate at The Juilliard School. I have been teaching students range from 7 years-old to people who are in their 70s. Helping students from different back ground, age group, and levels of playing has been very rewarding. I help my students preparing for their recitals, competitions, all state exams, or simply learning a new piece of music. I believe in tailoring teaching to each student's needs. Looking forward to working on and exploring cello playing with you!

My son is thrilled with YiQun's expertise, musicality, and useful tips and exercises. He was missing his orchestra and in person lessons, but with YiQun's online lessons, he is feeling is motivated to practice again!
