Teaching cello is a special journey I take with each student and their family. I believe that every individual is talented and capable of playing a musical instrument if they are given the right tools and instructions. I recognize every person has his or her unique way of learning, and I enjoy getting to know each of my students and finding out the best approach to motivate them. In my studio, students are treated with respect and are taught in a positive environment. I like to promote a sense of community for all my students and their families so they feel connected to and supported by other people who also share a love for music. Even though not every student will become a professional musician, my contribution is to encourage a sense of accomplishment, develop their love of music and the arts, and most importantly, enrich their lives and souls through the musical education I offer.
Hobbies/interests outside of music:
I love taking dance lessons, being a self-titled travel connoisseur, and spending time with family and friends.
