Over the last four years I have developed my talents as a teacher, starting with a group of school students from the Lidskjalf Co-op School, a Waldorf-based homeschool intiative in Woodstock, NY, teaching singing, recorder and piano. Since then I have also taught private lessons for cello, guitar and songwriting. I am a cello teacher at Primrose Hill Waldorf School in Rhinebeck.

My approach to teaching is, although technique and discipline are extremely important, if a sense of play (we do play music after all!) is not developed, as well as enthusiasm and creativity, then making music will become boring and rote. I teach children and adults, from beginner to intermediate, personalized to the needs and interests of each individual.

I offer lessons from my home or in yours. I teach private or group lessons on the following instruments:

  • Cello

  • Guitar

  • Piano

  • Recorder (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass)

    I also teach

  • Music Theory

  • Composition

  • Songwriting
