cello teachers fishtownWe’ve had some new additions to our cello teachers, and one of them is Fang Fang! Fang studied cello at Arizona State University and received her masters in cello performance. Her experience takes her from being a longtime student of cello herself to teaching and working in orchestras as an associate principal cello. She’s an expert in classical, with roots going back to lessons from her mother when she was 7. In addition to a career as a professional musician, Fang is also an accomplished teacher with award winning students. We managed to catch a snippet of her playing (video below). Also included is a piece performed at Arizona State (Sonata for cello in C major, op. 119 by Sergei Prokofiev).

Read about Fang Fang in her own words below.

I teach Cello and Piano. I have a Masters of Music in cello performance from Arizona State University. I have studied at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts and received my B.A in cello performance in China. I began to play the piano when I was 5 years old, then began learning the cello from my mother when I was 7 years old. I am a professional cellist and have been working in various orchestras for the past 8 years as associate principal cello. In Phoenix, I played in the Scottsdale Philharmonic as principal cello. I have been teaching for 10 years, and have learned that patience and enthusiasm are necessary to keep students interested and eager to learn. I pride myself in finding the unique musical talents of each student, and finding ways to communicate with them on an individual level. One of my students in Eastern China was awarded the 1st Prize at a Cello Competition in 2011. My primary focus as a teacher is on classical music for the cello and piano. I am schooled in the Suzuki Method of teaching and find it to be an invaluable way of learning as a beginner.

I teach private guitar lessons and general music classes for kids. With an emphasis on voice, guitar, piano and percussion, I often use multiple instruments to introduce beginners to basic musical concepts. I also teach a mommy-and-me style baby and toddler music class, where parents and children get to learn together through play and song. I have taught art and music to pre-school aged kids in schools and camps since graduating with a Fine Arts degree in 2008.  A self-taught musician, I perform vocals and play guitar in a local Philadelphia band. I enjoy writing my own music, and encourage children to experiment with songwriting as a learning tool. During lessons, I use play and creativity to convey fundamental musical concepts, such as rhythm, melody, and harmony. Ear training and intuition are at the core of my teaching style.
