Private Cello Lessons

Cello has been the light of my life and I aim to help instill a love and appreciation for music, explore each student’s natural voice, and find their own expression through the cello. 

I have been teaching cello for over a decade, have experience teaching ages 5-adult, and love teaching students of all levels.

My students have had wonderful success including: Winning concerto competitions or principal positions in orchestra, performing in All-City Orchestra, performing alongside Kronos Quartet for the Conservatory in the Schools project, and reaching many personal goals in music.

Together we will explore:

  • Technical fundamentals: through intensive scale work, etude study, and weekly exercises

  • Musicality & expression: study phrasing through musical form, harmony, sound, and help foster an innovative and unique voice in each piece.

Location of cello lessons: Sunset District, San Francisco

Chamber Music Coaching

My most memorable and enjoyable musical experiences have been rehearsing, learning and performing chamber music. Chamber music can be truly transformative.

I have been coaching chamber music for over 7 years and am currently on faculty at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music — Pre-College Department. Additionally, I have coached chamber music to young groups through the Lyceum Music Festival in Utah as well as Summer Music West in San Francisco. I received my post-graduate degree at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music receiving the Artist Certificate in Chamber Music.

If you have a preformed chamber group (duos, trios, quartets, quintets, etc.) I would be happy coach!
