Get to know me…
Welcome to my website. I am a cellist and instructor currently residing in Dallas, TX. Music is one of the strongest influences in my life; having been playing the cello for almost 15 years. I graduated from Texas Christian University with a degree in Political Science and a minor in Music, where I studied under the tutelage of cellist Dr. Jesus Castro-Balbi. I have over 7 years of teaching experience, both privately and in youth orchestra settings. As a former teaching artist for B-Sharp Youth Music Program, I learned to appreciate the importance of bringing music to communities. I currently teach at various schools, including the Fort Worth Country Day School and Rojas School of Music. As a cellist, you’ll find me performing in musicals for prestigious theaters, with major artists such as Michael Bublé, and local ensembles and symphony orchestras.
“Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.”
— Alphonse de Lamartine
My teaching philosophy is simple: create an environment for students where they can successfully acquire the skills to play the cello and appreciate the beauty and complexity of music. It’s vital that the student’s needs are understood and approached in a method that fosters growth and confidence. Having worked with students of various ages, I am attuned to different learning abilities, capable of adjusting to their needs. In my teaching, I utilize various resources: scales, etudes, method books, music theory, and even games to helps students learn proper physical movements and build strength and coordination skills.
