University cellist with 11 years experience offering online Cello Lessons for all ages!

Methodology

Music, especially classical music, is all about interpretation. Playing and performing is about expressing the intricate feelings of a composer's work and sharing it with an audience.

I hope to teach the idea that music is essentially always an intimate collaboration between artist and composer.

Background

Sophomore at Penn State University majoring in cello performance. Over 11 years of solo, chamber, and orchestral experience. Performances around the globe and at home including China, Mexico, Korea, and Carnegie Hall NYC.

Mentors include Jeffrey Solow, Tom Rosenberg, Jon Dexter, Marin Alsop, Michael Tilson-Thomas.
