Teaching Statement
I love teaching the cello, adapting my style to each student's needs and interests. I am somewhat analytical in my approach, which works better for students older than 10--but I think it is never too late to start. I really enjoy working with adult beginners, and I have students who range in age from 10 to 75, and from just starting out to advanced players. I want to help students find the joy in playing cello--and have fun with the process of learning it.
