Lesson Feesfrom $25.00 / 30 Minutes
I teach and play the cello. I am a cellist in a professional orchestra. I am graduate of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. I am the host of a group called the Music Appreciation Club where we learn about different composers and their music. I love to knit and bake.
My teaching style adapts to the needs of the student. I feel like each person has very individual needs and I do my best to figure out what works for each studnet.
Dr. Elizabeth Grunin, cellist and teacher, received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Until 2012, she was an active member of the musical community in Sacramento and San Francisco, performing in numerous orchestras, including the Camellia Symphony, the UC Davis Symphony Orchestra, Merced Symphony Orchestra, and North Bay Opera. Dr. Grunin has participated in such music programs as the Zephyr Chamber Festival in Italy, the Classical Music Festival in Austria, and the Kornberg Music Festival in Germany. After moving to Nebraska in 2012, Dr. Grunin completed her Doctorate in Music Performance at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, in the studio of Dr. Karen Becker.
I use an eclectic collection of materials most of which can be easily accessed through IMSLP or other sources. Usually I ask people to purchase music only when they are working on a specific piece which requieres that they have their own copy.
