I’m so proud of my student, Samantha. She recently attended the Campbell orchestra retreat with her school orchestra where she was recognized for her excellent playing technique. She was asked to do a playing demonstration that was used as a model of bowing style for her fellow section members. In addition to becoming a leader amongst her orchestra peers, she has also been “A”-cing her playing tests.
Samantha has been studying cello with me for a few years now, and I have had the pleasure of watching her blossom into a more confident musician. I enjoy teaching because it brings me such happiness to share the joys of music with others. Students like Samantha make my job so much easier and validates for me that I made the right decision in choosing to pursue a career in music.
Not only does Samantha shine as a cellist and maintain good grades in her other classes, she’s also a member of her school’s lacrosse team. She’s definitely an inspiration to us all.
