Teaching

My approach to cello playing originated in the teachings of Janos Starker, Paul Tobias, and Uri Vardi. Beginners, high school players, conservatory graduates, and adult amateurs all benefit from my holistic approach that emphasizes the production of a beautiful, powerful sound in the most efficient way possible.

As a coach for audition takers, I have helped cellists, violinists, violists, and double bassists to win positions in major orchestras in New York City and around the country.

I also give one-on-one coachings to composers exploring the possibilities and limits of writing for the cello.
