ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:

Samantha received a Bachelor of Music degree with a focus in cello performance from the Oberlin Conservatory in 2006.

Overview:

Samantha settled in Portland in 2007 after graduating from the Oberlin Conservatory with a degree in cello performance. Raised in New York in a musical family (her great-uncle, Fred Hellerman, is a founding member of the folk quartet, The Weavers), Samantha is a cellist, singer, songwriter and arranger in the classical and folk traditions. She's currently recording her first solo record. When Samantha isn't teaching or playing cello, you can usually find her on her bike, in the woods, in her garden, in her kitchen, or with her nose in a book.

EXPERIENCE

In addition to her solo career, Samantha loves playing with other musicians. She has toured nationally with the Portland Cello Project (hailed by Spin Magazine as an "indie orchestra [that] gives classical music a jolt of energy") and Typhoon, Portland’s thirteen-piece indie rock ensemble.

 

She has collaborated with many acclaimed performers both on stage and in the studio. Among these artists are Berlin Philharmonic director Sir Simon Rattle, the Oregon Ballet Theater, the Vancouver Symphony, and members of the Oregon Symphony, as well as indie rock musicians Mirah and Thao with the Get Down Stay Down. Through her travels with Typhoon, she has shared a stage with the Dandy Warhols and the Decemberists and has performed at the Newport Folk Festival, Lollapalooza, and on The Late Show with David Letterman. Samantha has performed classical and contemporary works throughout North America, at venues ranging from Oregon’s Britt Festival to Carnegie Hall.

METHODS USED

Samantha incorporates works from the Suzuki repertoire into lessons, as well as technical exercises by Klengel, Galamian, Jensen, Starker, Sevcik and Popper.

 

LESSON STYLE

Samantha enjoys teaching cello and fiddle to students of all ages and abilities. Lessons focus on exploring a variety of genres of music with a foundation in classical repertoire.

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.
