I believe that the first step to playing an instrument is the creation of a beautiful sound and I make sure the my students can create that in the first lesson. I've found that it's the tone of the cello that draws so many students to it and it's a love for the sound that keeps them interested. I take many pieces from the Suzuki books, which have a great progression of music that students of all ages respond well to. I also assign duos, with myself or another student playing the other part. I've found that playing with another instrument opens up a whole other world for students. For those who have an interest in it, I also teach improvisation and basic composition. Theory (including note reading) and technique (scales and other exercises) are assigned alongside pieces, and I've found that if they are introduced gradually, students gain a lot from it without feeling like it's thankless work. In terms of how I teach students personally, patience and encouragement have been the greatest tools for me. Each student's personality is different, of course, and my job is to figure out what is most inspiring for each student and what they respond well to. While self-discipline is an important part of learning an instrument (and to learning anything in-depth) I've found that when students feel inspired, they commit to music.

I am a motivated and open minded musican who takes joy in learning from others. Having recently graduated from the Boston Conservatory this past May, I have taken part in a number of various ensmebles. While my focus was in performance, in recent years I have taken a greater interest in teaching. With both a liberal arts as well as conservatory background, I have had the opportunity to dabble in both worlds. As a musician and student-scholar, I was fortunate enough to present on topics of interest to my area as well as perform on a regular basis. My hope is that students with a general background in history and theory (to which I highly encourage) will vastly see and hear changes in their playing.

My teaching experience began junior year of college when we started doing trial "lessons" in our classes and in the surrounding public schools of Lowell. Over that time I acquired specific techniques and methods that I have been able to apply to classroom settings and to individual students alike. Starting towards the end of my senior year I began doing private lessons on Guitar and hope to continue doing them for some time. Through my time working with students I have found that it is very important to get to know them on a more personal level, i.e. music they like, their interests, their hobbies etc, and that way I can tailor my lesson plans to them as individuals and make them feel as comfotable as possible. I've learned a lot from my experiences in and out of the classroom, and I use my knowledge to the best of my ability in every lesson.

As a performer, I have played in concerts around the United States, including Ohio, Carnegie Hall in New York, Maine, Michigan, and Florida. I have also performed extensively in Europe, including Spain, Croatia, and the Czech Republic.  I love to teach and pass on the knowledge I gained from my teachers to my students. I have space for 2, possibly 3 students.

I'm a dedicated cellist and collaborative musician. Through my training, I have been fortunate to work with a number of inspiring mentors and teachers. I began my serious training on the cello in Santa Barbara, California where I participated in the Santa Barbara Music and Arts Conservatory.  It was through this program that I came in contact chamber music, and artist-teachers who instilled in me a drive for the richness, color and palette of sound possibilities the cello can create.   I am currently about to complete my undergraduate degree at Wheaton College in Norton, MA.  During my freshman year, I auditioned for and was accepted into the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra.  With this ensemble, I gained extensive training as a touring cellist in a large orchestra.  We perfomed regularly in Symphony Hall Boston, Sander's Theatre Harvard, a tour to Carnegie Hall (reviewed by the NY Times and turned into a live recording for sale), as well as a tour to The Netherlands in June 2013 where we played in 5 cities culminating in a performance in the Concertgebouw Amsterdam.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
