About this pro

I can fit different childs' needs in order for them to succeed in playing a new instrument. I have been teaching for a year now. 

I've been playing cello for the past 7 years and have been participating in the Portland Youth Philharmonic for the past 4 years. This past year I have placed 1st in my high school's District competition and 4th in the Oregon State Solo and Ensemble. 

I enjoy the feeling when my student has practiced a lot to overcome a certain challenge. To see someone work hard and finally overcome something they had difficulty with is amazing and to see how happy they are when they realize they did it, is a great feeling

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Firstly, I try to get a feel for where my student is, level wise. I go through scales and certain excerpts to see where improvement can be made and where my student excels in. From there, I work on necessary skills and build on the skills that my student already has.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been playing the cello for 7 years now. 5 of those years has been with a private teacher and 4 of those years has been me participating in the Portland Youth Philharmonic. 

I have been in orchestra since 5th grade and continue to participate in it throughout the summer and school year.

How did you get started teaching?

I had the opportunity to teach some kids at a middle school what a cello was and how to hold it. After a month or two, one of the kids wanted to learn more about how to play and scheduled a lesson. Now, I've been teaching him for a year now. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would try a lot of teachers and see how they fit you. You should like them and feel comfortable with them but also have the respect needed to listen to their advice.
