People tell me all of the "I love the cello!" I agree!
The cello is an intriguing instrument with a rich history. Many believe that the cello's deep appeal is that the instrument's range most closely resembles that of the human voice.
Since the cello appeared on the scene, it has held many musical roles. I enjoy being an explorer on these many musical adventures on well-trodden paths (classical), and some less explored ones (pop, traditional, jazz, etc). Cellosmith is always looking for new adventures!
I prepped for these journeys with music degrees from Florida State University and the University of Miami. Sharing and encouraging a new generation of cellists is important to me, so I maintain a teaching studio at the Academy of the Arts in the adventure-filled city of Asheville, NC.
