I teach stringed instrument lessons at my home in Riverside. I have been teaching cello and bass in the Wichita area for the past eight years, and taught cello in Tucson, Arizona before moving to Kansas in 2011. I believe that music should be a part of everyday living and that learning a musical instrument will change your life. My mission is to teach playing, practicing, and performing skills and to connect my students to the music community in Wichita and beyond. My wife and I perform together as the folk/classical duo “cellOboe” vocally as well as instrumentally. I really enjoy writing songs and weaving together unique arrangements of cover tunes. I’m also in my fourth year as principal cellist with the Delano Chamber Orchestra and I help coach the cello and bass sections with the Delano Summer Youth Orchestra program.
