Overview:

I am a recent graduate from the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD. My main reason for relocating to the Chicago area has been to join multiple orchestras and ensembles. I have traveled all over the world performing and giving recitals including performances at Merkin Hall in New York, Millenium Park and Symphony Center in Chicago, Bela Bartok Hall in Budapest, Hungary, as well as performances in Pyongchang, South Korea, home of the 2018 Winter Olympics. I have played with astounding artists such as Renee Fleming, David Daniels, and DJ Kygo.

EXPERIENCE

I have been playing cello for nearly two decades and have attended the notable schools of New England Conservatory in Boston, MA and Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, MD. Growing up, I loved academics, couldn't go a season without sports, and started the cello at age three. I know how challenging it can be to put time into an instrument, and how at some points kids, no matter what, will not have the time and energy to put into music. For me, lessons are more than just about playing the instrument, they are also about learning diligence, self-worth and self-expression, persistence, and perseverance. With that being said, I do have high expectations for my students and want them to be progressing and improving always.

METHODS USED

For beginning students, I typically start with the Suzuki method books, because I think they lend themselves well to both kids and parents who are practicing with them. These books also come with accompaniment CDs which I find very important to learning. For adults, I like to have a conversation about what the student's goals are and what they are interested in and guide my instruction accordingly. For all, I want lessons to be engaging and fun, but to make real progress both in solo playing and collaboration.

LESSON STYLE

My main foundations for my teaching are rooted in goal setting, collaboration, and engaging music learning. At the beginning of every semester, I like to evaluate the goals from the previous semester, talk about what progress has been made, and what the future goals are. I personally feel that many times students quit because they do not enjoy practicing at home week after week, so for me, collaboration either with students from school, other students in the studio, or in local music schools or orchestras is a must. Lastly, engaging music learning helps students maintain their desire and passion to learn and play more.

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.
