MM, The Juilliard School (in progress)
BM, The Juilliard School (2017)
I’m a passionate and curious musician who is interested in sharing discoveries with students as I continue to search on my own musical path. I am currently a graduate cello student at Juilliard, where I also received my Bachelors degree. I have been teaching for about six years, and currently maintain a small private teaching studio. I perform regularly in the New York area, and frequently travel to perform across the United States and abroad. I love to share first hand playing and concertizing experiences with my students!
I have been teaching for about six years, working with students of a wide range of ages and levels of experience. I currently maintain a small private studio, and also work with larger groups of students in workshop or masterclass settings. I love to help students play the music that they want to play, to instill one of the purest joys of music making. This comes hand in hand with a solid technical foundation however, which we will work to incorporate. I often create practice plans for students each week, depending on his or her needs and learning styles.
I very much believe in a dialogue between student and teacher - the relationship is very much a two-way street, as we can both learn from one another in many ways. I don’t have a dogmatic, “one size fits all” approach; rather, I adjust to each individual student and his or her own needs. I do believe in laying the groundwork through fundamental technical training, however I approach this in different ways with each student based on learning styles. Above all, I would like to instill a love for music and the instrument in my students.
I am friendly and encouraging; I believe that everybody moves at their own pace and strive to help my students make progress. I believe in a goal-oriented mindset; sometimes I like to help students by creating practice guidelines for them to follow in between lessons. I also enjoy giving listening recommendations and the conversations that ensue - by discovering what a student likes or dislikes, I can have a clearer sense of his or her musical personality. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing a student grow and make 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.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
