<p>I love teaching enthusiastic students of all ages! Some of my students have won prestigious awards and competitions, all gain a thorough appreciation of cello. I have an adult cello ensemble - part chamber music/part &quot;cello therapy&quot; - and a summer workshop for intermediate to advanced level youth. For ten years I was a member of Santa Rosa Symphony, Sacramento Symphony, Women's Philharmonic, and Modesto Symphony, and I have performed with many local orchestras and chamber ensembles. I have performed either solo or in ensemble for over 300 weddings and special occasions. I have coached chamber music through Mills College and Piedmont Adult School, taught in the Oakland public schools as part of the Oakland East Bay Symphony's MUSE program, and I coach strings in Oakland elementary schools and at Piedmont Middle and High Schools. I am Executive Director of Young People's Symphony Orchestra and I initiated the Bay Area Youth Orchestra Festival, a benefit for homeless youth.</p>
