"Regarding live music for wedding/banquet type events, I provide first-rate cello and piano performance, with deep experience having solo performances in major US cities and Europe, and regularly performing in professional orchestral settings.
As a teacher, I have studied with celebrated cellists, including Ko Iwasaki, Emilio Colon, Brandon Vamos, and Suren Bagratuni. On Piano, my teachers have included Tella-Marie Debose, Gellert Modos, and Michael Fritch.
My style is a traditional intuitive approach that has yielded an outstanding studio, producing many music majors, several competition winners. But most importantly, we foster a happy and healthy approach to music as a model for long term well-being.
One of my most gratifying parts of my job is having played excellently and feeling as if I'd made the event even more special than the organizers had planned.
Even more, as a teacher, I relish a student's growth. I wish to see them all with greater skill, focus, character and nobility."
