A graduate of Smith College, Manhattan School of Music, and the Peabody Institute, I have been teaching children to play cello for over twenty years, utilizing the Suzuki method and traditional approaches. My goal is to give students a solid technical foundation and to help them establish a connection with the music they play.
In addition to teaching I have an active concert schedule, presenting solo and chamber works at libraries, museums, senior centers, social events, and charitable benefits. Performing enhances my teaching, as it re-vitalizes the principles I teach.
A member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas and NAfME, Nada currently mentors private students and coaches at the Trinity School in Manhattan. Her passion and ambition is to transfer knowledge and skills to her students so that their creativity and talent can shine.
