Hi! I am an experienced and serious cellist and teacher. I have a great passion for music and for teaching music as well. I am interested in helping cellists of all levels to achieve their artistic and musical aspirations and goals. Studying music has helped me to be disciplined, focused, and determined person and I believe that I can help students develop these same traits. I have travelled around the world playing and teaching, and I'm excited to meet prospective cello students in this area.
I've been teaching for about 6 years now privately. I've worked with beginners as well as more advanced students. I have also worked for a school, teaching elementary to middle school students one on and one. I also have experience teaching orchestrah sectionals.
For all of my students I try to encourage good basic technique and practicing scales and etudes. I believe in a healthy mix of technique and artistic expression. I also try to help students use their bodies in the most efficient way possible. I help students to create good habits and work to fix bad habits.
Usually in my lessons I like to hear the student play something from start to finish just so I can listen and take in what exactly a student's strengths and weaknesses are. Encouraging strengths, and praising accomplishments, is a great way to help a student to progress. I try not to dwell on mistakes or weaknesses but try to demonstrate or push the student in the right direction.
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
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
