Music is for Everyone!

From the pure joy of making music to better results at school or work, I believe studying an instrument can enrich and enhance our lives in countless ways.

I have taught private lessons for twenty years. I teach "traditional" cello methods that I have learned through my own studies with master cellists. I also have Suzuki certification in Book One. My students have ranged from age 4 to adult, beginner to advanced. I am currently accepting private cello students of all ages and levels.

My private studios are located at my home in Pittsburgh, PA and at Noteworthy Music in Valencia, PA.
