an instrument has many proven benefits. Music both assists in children's development and enriches their lives. A universal language, music is a skill to take pride in which engages both emotions and intellect.
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.
At Home Lessons
Semi-annual Student Recitals: Recitals are rewarded with a community service certificate.
Cello Ensembles: Work with classmates to prepare a cello duet or trio. Learn to play and listen. Coaching dates and times available.
Living Room Concerts: Invite family and friends over for a concert in your living room. Accompanied by your teacher, a home concert is an excellent performance goal for cello students.
