Introduction: Hello! My name is Jinn, and I am a cellist with the Grand Rapids Symphony. I am offering in-person lessons for the West Michigan area (with COVID-19 guidelines) and online lessons for those outside of Michigan. During this difficult time, we must keep making music! I don't have a cookie-cutter way of teaching; rather, I design my approach based on each student's goals and each student's way of learning. I believe that learning cello is a part of living life and growing holistically. Therefore, I help students with not just learning how to play the notes on a page but more importantly, how to listen, interpret, think, solve, communicate, and enjoy. I hold degrees from Eastman School of Music, University of Rochester, and Manhattan School of Music. My road to becoming a cellist and an educator included some detours (hence the cognitive sciences degree from U of Rochester), but in the end, it required a lot of self-reflection as well as guidance from incredible mentors. I am certain that the road taught me how to teach to inspire, and I am excited at the opportunity to join your musical journey!

Jinn has been very helpful and kind in responding to our needs. My daughter enjoys her time with Jinn as she not only teaches the techniques but also perfects the music. Jinn is very professional and amicable to work with.
