TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Loving string instruments since I was young, I studied Cello and International Communications in my undergraduate career, followed by a full-scholarship towards earning my Masters of Music in Cello Performance. After completing post-graduate studies in Music Education, I am fortunate to teach Elementary Orchestra to adorable young musicians in a wonderful public school on Eastern Long Island.

MY TEACHING STYLE

A balance of encouragement, fun and seriousness!
