Bachelor of Music degree
I am a cellist from Minnesota that has just moved back from living in New York City for the past seven years. I graduated with honors and received the Kagan Orchestral Performance award from the Aaron Copland School of Music under the tutelage of Marcy Rosen. I began my Bachelor of Music degree at New York University, studying with Clive Greensmith of the Tokyo String Quartet. My other teachers have included Jerome Carrington at Juilliard Pre-College, Pitnarry Shin of the Minnesota Orchestra, and Sachiya Isomura of the Minnesota Orchestra. Holding the position of assistant principle cello of the New York Youth Symphony for two years, I have performed in Carnegie Hall seven times both with them and with my quartet. I have freelanced and played numerous gigs in NYC both with chamber ensembles and with such orchestras as Ensemble 212. Being an active performer, I have given frequent solo recitals in Lefrak Concert Hall and Sundin Music Hall in St. Paul, MN.
I have had numerous private students over the years in New York, ranging in age from 6 to 40 and at all abilities. I also taught briefly in Minnesota, assisting students at St. John's Prep School. I have also taught in Tokyo, Japan both privately to children and group lessons in an elementary school.
For the beginner, I generally start with the Essential Elements books (at least Book 1) and switch to Suzuki Cello School books after that. For intermediate to advanced students, I teach from various technique books and progress to standard cello reperatoire, from works by Klengel, Lee and Popper to standard concertos and sonatas.
I am flexible in my approach and realize that every person has a different way of learning music. No matter what your age is and what your goals are in music, I will work with you to find the most effective approach to learning the cello. I am not Suzuki Method certified as of now but I know about the method and can incorporate aspects of it into our lessons if a parent would prefer it.
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.
