About Nazan

I have been playing cello for 10 years and have studied various styles of music. I started out with Western classical and then began studying jazz in college. Aside from my instrument I am very passionate about music theory (Classical or jazz), composition, and arranging. I love helping people out with problems because I like to see everyone succeed, and music can be very frustrating at times. So instead of watch someone want to completely give up, I like to step in and lend a helping hand.

My approach to teaching is to try and get to know the student and understand what they would like to learn. I will encourage students who wish to learn cello to take the time to listen to a lot of music and then tell me what they'd like to learn. With younger students of course I would focus on teaching the basics of the instrument and showing them level appropriate pieces to learn. One of my favorite things about music theory is analyzing scores, so I would definitely encourage the student to give that a try as it shows how these "theories" have come about and been put to use.

I can teach a Beginning/Intermediate level on cello and can help anyone with theory. It really depends on how much experience you have with music and how much you'd like to learn. I can also assist with beginning level improvisation, jazz or other, and composition.

I'm bilingual and lived in Turkey for 10 years. Did my first 8 years of schooling there so I'm very proficient with the language and can teach anyone who wants to learn.

I've been a big reader my entire life and love teaching people so nothing would make me happier than to help someone conquer this crazy language we call English. Patience is my middle name!

I've been playing music for 10 years, I started pretty late in age so I understand the struggle. I'm very passionate about all aspects of music and love helping people learn.

In conclusion, I am here to lend a hand in many subjects to those who need it. I enjoy working with people one on one and getting to know people on that basis which is so important especially in music. Please get in touch if you'd like a relaxed yet challenging learning experience.
