Ask a Cappella Teacher!
What is your first musical memory?
Playing piano on my Mom’s toes and bugging her until she enrolled me in lessons. Then by a twist of fate, stumbling onto playing the cello, falling in love, and never looking back!
What inspired you to become a music teacher?
My teachers! The inspiration, help, and guidance they gave me when I was growing up not only instilled love in me for my instrument, but inspired me to pass on the torch, and help others connect through this wonderful world of music.
What practice tips and tricks do you have for Cappella Academy students?
Patience! Practice is hard work! Take it one phrase, one measure, one note at a time if you have to! You can’t just play something challenging by hoping for the best playing through it. Still, the hardest thing about making music is getting from one note to the next. All we have to do is have a plan and a feel for how. We have to nitpick the details and train our bodies to perfect and remember things for us. But the rewards are beautiful once it all clicks!
What is the one thing you want your students to take away from their lessons with you?
We are all here to learn new things from each other, share our passion for music, and have fun!
