Catherine teaches Suzuki and traditional lessons for ages 4 + and for all levels, beginning to advanced. Catherine maintains private studios in Catonsville and Marriottsville, MD.


Catherine teaches with a high attention to technical and musical detail.  She is also focused on building life-skills, character and, perhaps most importantly, the love of playing the cello.


Students of Catherine regularly win seats, including Principal Cello, in the Howard County GT Orchestras, Peabody String Ensemble and various Baltimore Symphony Youth Orchestra ensembles.  They also have consistently earned top marks on the ASTACAP exams (American String Teacher's Assocation Certificate Advancement Program).  Her students are praised for their technical set-up, their beautiful tone, and their preparedness.
