ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:

Bachelor Degree: University of Arizona

Overview:

I am a passionate and fun loving instructor who adores bonding with students over a shared love of the cello. I have spent the past decade performing solo and in ensembles, and studying under the tutelage of many great professors. I am currently studying under Dr. Theodore Buccholz at the University of Arizona, where I am pursuing degrees in cello and neuroscience. The intersection between cello and neuroscience fascinates me, and I love to use my knowledge of the brain to make practicing as effective and effortless as possible for my students. As a student myself, I understand the struggles of being a student when it comes to time management and motivation, and I see it as part of my job to inspire students and make that aspect of their learning as easy as possible.

EXPERIENCE

My experience is very performance based; I have been a member of countless ensembles throughout the years such as Arizona Philharmonic Orchestra, Arizona Symphony Orchestra, Corvallis Youth Symphony, Camarata Orchestra, Concertato Orchestra, and more. I also have extensive chamber music experience, having been in many quartets and quintets. I am currently in the HIIM String Quartet and the Arizona Symphony Orchestra. I find chamber music to be one of the most rewarding things one could do, there is nothing like working in a small group of like-minded individuals with a common goal. In addition to my performance experience, I was also on staff at Inside Music Academy, where I was able to solidify myself as a leader and teacher in the community. While I am somewhat new to private teaching, my cello studio is an extremely productive and supportive space, and I have already found it so rewarding to be able to share what I have learned throughout my years and see people experiencing music the way I have.

METHODS USED

For young beginner students, I typically use the Suzuki method, as that is the way I was trained. I’ll also implement other books/techniques as I find useful, such as Feuillard, Cossmann, Duport, and Starker. However, I understand that not every student learns the same way, and I love formulating a plan that works well for each student. Students often come with on their own goals for repertoire in mind, and I wanna do my best to accommodate those. While I think it’s important to have a solid classical background, if a student happens to be passionate about another genre of music, I want to help them thrive in what they love. While my experience has been mostly classical, I also have experience in pop music, jazz, musical theater, and mariachi music. With adult beginner students, I find that it is often most effective to take a less structured approach, and use a more repertoire based learning experience. Ultimately, I want to do what’s best for each individual student, and I enjoy the challenge of creating a plan that works well and keeps each person feeling motivated and fulfilled.

LESSON STYLE

My teaching style is centered on the intersection between neuroscience and music. I love exploring how the brain works and how we can take advantage of that to make our practice as effective as possible. For example, did you know that a lot of the absorbing information that your brain does happens while you’re sleeping? Or that a technique called “random practice” is more effective than “blocked practice”? In addition to supplementing my teaching with my neuroscience degree (in progress), I also think that it is my job as a teacher to make motivation and inspiration as easy as possible for the student. As a music student myself, I understand such difficulties as time management, and I think that if a student isn’t having fun, I’m not doing my job.

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.
