My private lesson rate is $35 for a half-hour lesson, $45 for a 45 minute lesson, and $55 for an hour lesson.  I accept payment for lessons weekly or pre-payment monthly.


  • Students should arrive on-time and prepared to each lesson, with all music, a notebook and a pencil. 
  • Participation in recitals is required.   Performing facilitates the “Practice -> Success -> Motivation -> Practice” cycle!  
  • With young students, a parent is *strongly* encouraged to attend each lesson and take notes.
  • Daily practice is integral to the  “Practice -> Success -> Motivation -> Practice” cycle. Parents should establish a routine for their children right away. 
  • Missed lessons and cancellations without 24 hours notice are billed at the regular lesson rate; rescheduling is possible, subject to mutual availability.  


I teach after school and on Sundays at the Chicago Waldorf School in Rogers Park, and commute to local students (additional fee applies).


I recommend the following:

  • Suzuki Method Volume 1 and  listening CD.
  • Suzuki Method Volume 2 and  listening CD.
  • Beautiful Music for Two String Instruments — cello Volume 1.
  • Schroeder Foundation Studies for Violoncello
  • Let’s Duet (Lynn Latham) Volume 1 for Cello.
  • I Can Read Music Volume 1 for Cello.
