I am a Dallas based Cello player, I was born in Santiago, Chile where I attended a prestigious music conservatory since I was 8 years old. Music has been a part of me all of my life thanks to my father, a renown orchestra conductor and film score composer, who helped me develop talents through exposure to music, this allows me to enjoy a wide range of styles of music from slow Cello/Piano pieces to full Film Score Orchestra-like singles. I enjoy teaching very much, being able to shape someone into the best version of themselves is truly a magical experience.
I have been playing the Cello for about 9 years. I began in my home country of Chile when I was in the 2nd grade. My father is a composer and renown musician so music has been a part of my life since day one. I recently began a music career as an artist, as a result I now have music on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, Pandora, Amazon and other music stores. I began teaching about 4 years ago, I worked for TakeLessons in which I did both Online lessons and face-to-face. I pride myself in making my students succeed, I’ve had students start taking lessons with me starting in the lowest orchestra and after some months they are in the top orchestra and in a couple of occasions they were also first chair. I love children and I also like getting the best out of people, I’ve had student much older than me and they, to this day, still thank me for helping them reach their goals.
For beginning students who are children, I typically start with Suzuki Cello Book 1. Once the student has progressed to have a grasp of the fundamentals, I will begin to introduce solo repertoire tailored for each student depending on their skill level. For adults, I try to find out what the student is interested in, and guide my instruction accordingly to keep the lessons engaging and fun, no matter their ability level. I also include the student's school music to better prepare them for recitals and concerts. I always include more contemporary music so the students also feel more motivated and interested in their instrument.
Nothing is more rewarding than seeing one of my students develop a passion for music! Therefore, it's important that each student progresses at his or her own pace. I encourage this by setting realistic goals for my students at each lesson. Acknowledging accomplishments helps fuel a students desire to progress, and makes students eager to learn more. By trying to find out what inspires the student, I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs. I use a more contemporary style of teaching by implementing new technology to the lessons in order to make them more interesting and exciting for the students.
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.Ok
