Multi instrumentalist with 20 years experience offering lessons in greater San Diego

Methodology

My teaching method is based off of the Suzuki method. As graduate of a K-12 Waldorf education and a classical conservatory of music I have a multi-faceted approach to student development that encourages personal inspiration and student driven curriculum. I generate and curate material that inspires joy and creativity based on the student and their individual interests.

Background

As a performer in theater, dance, improvised music and athletics I approach teaching from a professional, exciting and fun direction. Teaching cello, upright bass and electric bass and encouraging cross genre development inspires my students to play outside the box and extend the limits of their instruments.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $60/h

Details

I have a 24 hour cancelation policy requiring notice of at least 24 hours for the lesson to be made up at a later date. If less than 24 hours notice is provided by the student the lesson fee will be charged in full and no make up will be required.
