Eastside Cello

"I have the same feeling when I walk in a very beautiful place that I have when I play and it goes right
Jacqueline du Pre


I have over 20 years cello teaching experience in a private studio setting.

In Australia I performed professionally as lead cello in the Sydney productions of 'Phantom of the Opera' and 'Miss Saigon' at the Theater Royal Sydney. I also performed with the Cove Chamber Orchestra and have played in productions of Handel's Messiah and the Faure Requiem at the Sydney Opera House. 

In Seattle I have performed as part of the Vashon Island Chamber Music series, at the Cascadia Art Museum in a baroque trio, and I am active in Seattle's recording industry, playing for movie soundtracks, video games and T.V commercials. 

I am a cello coach for the Bellevue and Northshore School Districts and have adjudicated at eastside Solo and Ensemble Festivals. I am on faculty for the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestra (SYSO) Summer Music Program, the Vashon Island Cello Camp and have directed the Bear Creek School String Ensemble.
