Introduction: *In-person lessons are held only at my home studio in Wilton, CT. Zoom lessons held anywhere!* I am always open to negotiating affordable rates ("pay what you can"/sliding scale payments) to keep lessons accessible to all. I also offer a free 45 minute consultation lesson if you still have any lingering doubts! About me: isabellapalacpaccello.com - Bachelor’s degree in cello performance from The Juilliard School (2020) - 8+ years of experience teaching private students in Fairfield County, CT - Cofounder/former director of the Roots of Music camps in Wilton, CT, and Congers, NY - Cello faculty member at “The Cello Camp” in Westport, CT since 2018 - 2020-2021 volunteer teaching artist at the Corona Youth Music Project (Núcleo Corona) - Cello instructor at the Harmony Program Summer Camp (2017) While my primary training is in classical music, I also have extensive experience in arranging and performing pop/rock/movie genres and appreciate opportunities to explore various types of music. I work with students to identify unique goals in their cello practice. I believe in creating specialized lesson plans for each student that build strong technical and musical foundations but always prioritize finding joy in the sharing of music. I also try to be readily available to assist students outside of lessons and encourage students to send practice progress updates or questions that I can comment on throughout the week.

Ms Isabella is a great Cellist and cello teacher. She teaches a wonderful balance between musicality and technics, making the class both worthwhile and enjoyable, for an 11 yr old. She listens and interacts attentively during lesson, and adjusts her teaching style and content specific to our needs, inside or outside the Suzuki repertoire...Highly recommend her to cello students of any level or age!
