You can find a narrative of my teaching credentials below:
I began teaching at a young age. While pursuing my undergraduate degree I began coaching at chamber music festivals in NYC and Europe. While I was pursuing my Master’s Degree at Juilliard, I was the teaching assistant to David Soyer, of the Guarneri Quartet. My duties included organizing lesson schedules for him, organizing and directing studio/performance classes for the studio, teaching private lessons to his two pre-college (young adult) students. I was primarily responsible for their progress and preparations for college auditions. They both got into top choice schools: McGill University and Juilliard. In the following year I was invited to serve as Bonnie Hampton’s teaching assistant for two consecutive years at Juilliard. My duties were similar to those listed above.
I had the great opportunity to serve as cello professor at Hunter College in NYC for seven years. At Hunter College, I encountered many different types of students: from cello majors to more casual music minors. More importantly, I had the opportunity to work with students whose unique physical limitations, or other obstacles to playing cello, challenged the traditional teaching model.
At music festivals around the world, I have had students that won performance prizes. Teaching masterclasses in various international locations while on tour is a very exciting combination of teaching and performing. One such experience I had was to lead a week long educational and performance residency at Northern Michigan University. Another memorable experience was leading rehearsals and teaching music to under served youth in South Africa.
I consider myself a lifelong student of music and other gifted educators.
