My goal in the early stages of working with a new student is to identify learning style, practice load, as well as strengths and weaknesses of technique and musicality. These points will help determine the pace and approach to the early lessons.

During my two cello performance degrees (BM, MM) at the Cleveland Institute of Music, I studied also Cello Pedagogy (Art of Teaching) under world-renowned Melissa Kraut and took 6 semesters of Suzuki Pedagogy Teacher Training to complete the entire Suzuki Method Cello Teacher Registration. During my final year studying at The Cleveland Institute of Music, I was appointed to CIM's Preparatory Faculty and also worked as Cello Faculty of Western Reserve Suzuki School, Hudson School of Music, and in Lakewood City Schools.
