"You Had Me At Cello" April 1st, 2022 Interview
Private Cello Lessons
2014 - present
My main passion is my private teaching studio with my dedicated students ranging from beginners to advanced, 4 years old to retirees. My Master's Degree in Cello Pedagogy along with my Suzuki Cello Certifications have given me the tools to help instruct all of my students, helping me to adapt to each students' specific learning needs. My main studio is located in Hartland, WI at the Waukesha Conservatory of Music.
I teach a wide variety of students and levels. My previous teaching experience includes private instructing for students ranging in ages from 3-60’s and beyond with levels from beginner to early advanced. I have students performing in MYSO and with the State Middle School Honors Orchestra.
