What I do:
I am a musician and cellist and dedicate much of my time to teaching. My students’ ages range from 5 to over 70 years old. To me, the most important thing is to help them become the best possible musicians and bring out their talents.
I am also an experienced performer, playing solo recitals and chamber music concerts as well as performing with many Boston area orchestras.

If you’ve ever yearned to play with beautiful, emotional Vibrato the way you hear it in your favorite cello pieces, this is the DVD for you. It’s a simple, proven method for taking you from zero knowledge to a professional-sounding Vibrato.
This DVD has helped hundreds of people of all ages learn to incorporate the Vibrato as an element of their playing, enhancing and adding to their sound.

You'll find a quick list of useful tips for how to tastefully incorporate Vibrato into your existing repertoire.
If a gorgeous Vibrato is what you want to achieve, this DVD will help you get there.
