I'm an energetic and intuitive cello instructor who loves teaching people of all ages and abilities. I majored in classical performance in undergrad and earned a masters in Music Education, both from Boston Conservatory at Berklee. I've had the pleasure of performing all over the world, from small bars to museums and concert halls, and I love it all! Teaching is my passion; I believe in student-centric teaching, and my lessons are tailored to each individual student. I hope we can work together towards your goals!
My teaching experience began with my Masters in Music Education, where I skills to present material in a clear way, while setting achievable goals. I also learned to work with students with special needs in the Boston Conservatory Program for Students on the Autism Spectrum program, where I was a founding staff member. I have been teaching private lessons for over ten years, and it is truly my passion. I love working one on one with students to achieve their goals and have fun learning! I have enjoyed teaching students ages 3-80!
For beginning students, I typically start with Hal Leonard's Essential Elements and "I Can Read Music" to get acquainted with the basic techniques of the instrument and note reading. It is always more fun to play with others, so I typically start playing duets with students as early as possible. For older and more advanced students, I begin with scales and etudes suited towards their needs, followed by a solo or concerto piece for cello, and then end the lesson with a duet or time to work on orchestral music, improvising, or any fun piece that the students request.
I am a warm and intuitive teacher who loves to guide students toward a life long love of music! I keep lessons fun and light, acknowledging accomplishments and pushing students toward their next milestone. I tailor my teaching style to each students learning style and personal goals, but also provide a solid structure for building practice habits and good technique in younger or beginning students. I love playing along with students in duets, as making music together is one of the great joys of learning an instrument.
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
