Adult Beginner

I'm a beginner cellist starting at an older age of 34 but I have some experience with Viola and Violin about 10 years ago. I've had private instructors in both those instruments. I have to say that Emily is by far the BEST music teacher I've had! She was able to break down complex topics into simple subjects I could understand. Things that I never quite understood while playing Viola/violin are finally starting to click.

I was a bit embarrassed that I didn't know some of the more basics of music and music theory considering I have some experience with stringed instruments. However, Emily readily explained all of the beginner material in a way that I finally understood! I'm learning to read music, not just memorize it. I've been playing cello about 2 months know and I'm really happy with the progress I've made. I'm having fun and I'm learning. Emily's tutelage has put me onto a lifelong path of cello playing. If you are considering learning the cello yourself, definitely go with Emily as a teacher!
