Overview:

I recently graduated with a B.M. in cello performance from the Juilliard School. I have over six years of private teaching experience with cellists of all ages and experience levels. As a soloist, ensemble member, and participant in international festivals and competitions, I have performed throughout the US, China, Canada, Switzerland, and Russia. I have performed as a soloist with various orchestras throughout Connecticut including the Hartford Symphony Orchestra, and was a member of Carnegie Hall's National Youth Orchestra of the USA. Though my education is in classical music, I am also an experienced performer and arranger of pop, rock, and other contemporary music, and aim to allow students to use the cello to find their own artistic voices in whatever genres they enjoy most.

EXPERIENCE

I have taught a small studio of private students for over six years. Before I entered college, I was the co-founder and former director of the Wilton and Congers Roots of Music Camps, where I led a team that provided free music instruction to young instrumentalists for three years. I am also currently on the faculty at The Cello Camp in Westport, CT, and previously taught as a summer volunteer instructor at the Harmony Program in NYC. At these programs, I led private lessons, group lessons, and arranged music for and taught small chamber ensembles and large cello choirs. Students I have worked with have gone on to successfully audition for regional youth orchestras and pre-college programs.

METHODS USED

I aim to tailor my lesson plans to each student’s unique goals. The methods I use differ based on each person’s aspirations and learning habits. I believe that the cello can be a beneficial addition to anyone’s life, whether it is being played for recreation/therapy, to explore and enjoy great music, or to challenge oneself and build discipline through rigorous practice. I like to use the first few Suzuki and Schroeder books for complete beginners to introduce basic bowing and intonation concepts while building confidence with the cello. With intermediate/more advanced students, I explore various etudes, exercises, and harmonic analysis training alongside more advanced pieces (suites, sonatas, concertos, etc.) to build upon more complex musical and technical ideas. For students that may be interested in non-classical genres and/or composing or arranging their own tunes, I am always excited to talk about the basics of improvisation and arranging.

LESSON STYLE

I offer the option for students to send me practice progress videos during the week so that I may comment on any questions that may arise in between lessons. I have found that this pushes students to keep a regular practice routine, and also develops their ability to self-critique and correct their own playing. I work with students to identify goals to focus on every week and develop effective, reasonable practice plans that work with their busy schedules. While I work with all students to build a solid technical cello foundation, I want my students to play and immerse themselves in the pieces and music they love most so that they stay inspired to explore the cello. WIth the understanding that everyone has different aspirations and expectations, I teach students with the hope that they are all comfortable challenging themselves, learning from making mistakes, and are ultimately happy with their musical progress.

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.
