Hello interested cellist!
My name is Dessislava, which always proves to be way too long, so I am happy to go by Dessi.
I have taught private cello lessons from beginners to music majors in college. I have also been performing in orchestras and as a chamber musician for twenty years. I enjoy having students who are interested in learning not only how to play the cello but also how to think, identify problems, and learn how to come up with practicing techniques. I also enjoy when my students have questions no matter what they are.
I was a teaching assistant at Michigan State University for five years and have been on the faculty of Albion College (MI) and several Community Music Schools in Arkansas, Michigan, and Illinois.
Hope to hear from you!
