WELCOME TO MY CELLO STUDIO
I have been teaching the cello for several decades and thoroughly enjoy the process of discovery that happens in a lesson. I teach all levels and to a wide range of ages, from children through adults.
I believe that learning to play or improving one's playing can be a joyful experience and that mastery can be achieved at every step of the way. My goal as a cello and chamber music teacher is to impart the tools necessary for playing beautifully and naturally, with ease and confidence.
