My name is Catherine and I am a cello teacher who is passionate about guiding people in discovering knowledge and building confidence in their area of interest. I love the challenge and reward of helping to facilitate "lightbulb moments" in my students, as I celebrate and learn from the variety of strengths I encounter in each person. I have been teaching music for over a decade and the experience continues to teach me about what more I can bring to you, the student. One thing I know for sure is anyone can learn something they put their focus on. It takes a good deal of commitment and the willingness to let go and have fun, but I am happy to encourage you every step of the way!
