Through years of study with my primary teacher, George Neikrug (an Emeritus at Boston University), I have learned that no matter what the challenge is when playing an instrument, it can always be simplified and reduced to the basics. I aim to make my teaching so clear that a student will gradually be able to teach themselves. I also, believe that playing an instrument should be physically comfortable, so I guide my students to a relaxed approach to the cello. In terms of emotion in music, I emphasis how the emotion evolves over the course of a piece (even a short piece for a beginner). I also encourage singing to help my students discover the emotions of the piece and make it their own.

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.

I always try to guide my instruction in a fun and engaging direction to keep the student interested and motivated to get better. I am able to do this by being energetic and enthusiastic about my teaching and I feel its important to make the material matter to the student. When a student has confidence in their abilities they are able to achieve much success on their specific instrument. As I also previously mentioned, getting to know what inspires a student and knowing them on a more personal level helps develop a better student/teacher relationship and thus yields a better outcome on the instrument.

I believe in teaching the foundations of cello playing-- such as scales, apreggios, double stops. We encounter these techniques all over the repertoire and it's important to learn the basics. I encorporate practice techniques while teaching pieces to help the student learn how to work on it on their own.

I believe patience and versatility are very important, as each student learns a different way. I set goals for each lesson and try to guide the student during the lesson into achieving them. Sometimes the goals are achieved during the lesson, and sometimes while practicing on hteir own time. I don't believe in achieving "perfection", but rather developing a solid understanding and connection with the piece, which is accomplished through putting in hard work and effort.

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.
