I earned a B.M. from the Peabody Institute and a M.M. from Rice University. I also worked toward a D.M.A. at the College-Conservatory of the Univ. of Cincinnati where I was a pupil of the late Zara Nelsova. I taught at the Univ. of Arkansas-Fayetteville and the Texas Southern Univ-Houston. I have taught in the Houston Inedpendent School District and at the Monmouth Conservatory of Music in Red Bank, NJ.
I generally charge $100 per lesson. Those lessons start at one hour in length but often run over. I am very willing to charge less for those who wish to take lessons weekly. I am not willing to teach 30 minutes or 45 minutes.
I was hired as a private cello teacher for the Houston Independent School District while I was in graduate school.
I have taught all ages from beginners to advanced professionals. I have done a lot of orchestral audition coaching and also private lessons for 4 decades.
In 2005 I travelled to Moscow to record the Cello Concerto by Vernon Duke for the Naxos label. The orchestra was the Russian Philharmonic with Dmitri Yablonsky conducting.
