I am a performer, and also a music historian. I try to teach my students the aspects of performing, and technique, as well as the history and culture of the music they will learn.

David W

Instruments:

I grew up with music all around me. Both of my parents play classical instruments like the cello and violin. My childhood home was filled with sounds of classical and chamber music. Therefore, it is not so surprising that I too chose to move in the direction of music. I went to Bard College with no clear intent on what to do, but I continued to play in orchestras and chamber music groups, and knew that no matter which degree I chose, that I would always love playing the cello.

Laura C

Instruments:

I am a classically trained cellist in NYC and am currently working towards a Master’s degree in cello performance at a top NYC conservatory. In addition to performing chamber music, I love to teach cello lessons to aspiring musicians of all ages! My musical aspirations stem from an undying love of music and my wish to share this with others. I am friendly, cheerful, energetic, and very patient, which creates an easy atmosphere for students to tackle the challenges of mastering the cello.

Maxfield W

Instruments:

Music enables levels of communication and understanding between human beings that we don't come close to in the rest of our society and interactions. From my love for chamber music and recognition of music and art as an integral vocabulary for expanding global dialogue, understanding, and peace, I look for performance, creation, recording, and collaboration in classical, tango, contemporary, world, popular, and interdisciplinary artistic projects. Some of my teachers have included Peter Howard, Jorja Fleezanis, Atar Arad, Tanya Carey, and Sally Gross (choreographer). Through my performance and teaching I am always working to expand the role of cello and art in daily culture, challenging both audiences and performers to find new ways to explore and connect.
