I teach beginner cello primarily using the Suzuki books, but supplement with other materials when needed. My students work on scales and rhythm constantly to improve their tone and musicality as well as technique. I teach classical, religious, fiddle, and more. I also teach group ensembles, trios, quartets, and I work with students on their school orchestral and audition pieces.
My name is Erin. I am a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Music, with a concentration in Violin. I began studying violin at the age of six.

Playing Cello is challenging and the enjoyment is extreme. That's why many people are ready to go through this tough way in hope of being able to master this magic instrument. I have played Cello for 20 years and I cannot imagine to live without this instrument. In this course I'll try to help you to go through an academic way of playing and ease the learning of the instrument. I'll use different books in this course. We'll play scales, arpeggios and lots of small pieces out of different resources. You may be able to learn many instruments on your own, but Cello is absolutely not one of them.
Hi! I believe that music is rooted in all human beings and cultures in a reach and vast variety of forms. Music unifies and engages thinking and feeling in a direct and immediate way. Music influences individuals simultaneously on different levels of consciousness and form an important device for learning, recreation, arranging of conscious and unconscious impressions and at the same time for characterizing and conveying ideas and thoughts. This as a point of departure characterizes my teaching philosophy, which strives to create a climate in which my students can experience continuous musical, intellectual, and emotional growth. As a music instructor and musicologist I demonstrate the characteristics of professional and passionate for everything related to my teaching. I am ...
With a Bachelors of Music in Cello Performance, I am qualified to teach all levels of cello. I can teach from beginner to advanced and from the very young to the adult.
As a teacher, I have had the privilege of working with private students for the past 10 years. It is one of the great joys of my life. My studio currently consists of students of all ages who study cello, piano, or violin with me. As a lifelong student of music, myself, I have been blessed to study under a number of great teachers, including world-famous cellist Nathaniel Rosen, and I hold a Bachelors of Music Performance from Meadows School of the Arts at Southern Methodist University. I have also had the chance to record cello for film, classical albums (including recordings by Maestro Paul Phillips and Dr. Jack Delaney), and contemporary music projects. In drawing on my experiences both as a teacher and performer, my goal with each of my students is to guide them on a ...
I teach cello from beginning to lower stage of intermediate level. I make it fun and enjoyable to learn songs and play them with high level of expression, musicality and strong vibrato. In order to achieve those goals, I work with you patiently to play scales, arpeggios, etudes and songs from different sources, among them Suzuki books.

Thank you for stopping by! Playing the cello can be a therapeutic experience that improves our quality of life and provides us with a constant source of inspiration. I focus on enrichment to the student's well-being as well as on the continual process of learning. I combine traditional instrumental technique with insights from Waldorf methodology. Both musical training and Waldorf education have emphasized to me the innate power, significance and benefit of sound, or tone, itself. With its deep, comforting voice, the cello can be a particularly soothing instrument to learn. I strive to bring pictures, images, poems, metaphors and stories to awaken the impulse behind the music, bringing it to life. I go at the student's pace, gently and patiently encouraging. After each ...
