Who I am
I hold degrees from top institutions in the US where I studied with some of the top cellists in the music industry, and have also received training in the Suzuki Method Pedagogy Program, earning certification in all books of the Suzuki Cello Method.
What I do
I offer premium lessons for people of all ages and skill levels that focus on fundamental performance techniques and musical artistry, developing important skills such as problem solving, time management, and understanding how to achieve your goals.
I cater my teaching style to you or your child’s needs. I have extensive experience preparing my students for College Auditions, Youth Orchestra auditions, CM Exams, and more. My students have been accepted to colleges such as Cal State Long Beach, UC Irvine, and NYU and have also been accepted into programs such as The Colburn Chamber Orchestra, Colburn Chamber Music, Pasadena Youth Symphony Orchestra, Glendale Youth Symphony, and Junior Chamber Music.
My lessons focus on the “Big Picture”, meaning whatever skills you use to play cello at the highest level are heavily correlated with other skills that are needed in life. While my responsibility is to make sure that my students make the most out of his/her experience playing the cello, I also see myself as a mentor and continually check up on how my students are doing, offering guidance and support on matters such as school, preparing for college, etc.
Where I teach
I am currently based in the San Fernando Valley, and I am also able to drive to locations such as La Canada, Glendale, Pasadena, Highland Park, and Arcadia.
