Canadian cellist Trisha Doo is recognized for her charismatic and radiant performing style. She has performed as a soloist and orchestral musician on renowned stages from Carnegie Hall in New York City and Severance Hall in Cleveland, to Vancouver’s Orpheum Theatre. She began her cello studies at the age of ten with Judy Fraser and has since studied under the tutelage of Bo Peng, Joseph Elworthy, Darrett Adkins, Gwen Krosnick, Rosemary Elliott, and Steven Doane. She has had the privilege of performing in both solo and chamber masterclasses for distinguished artists like Joel Krosnick, Mark Steinberg, Gilbert Kalish, Kim Kashkashian, and Ani Kavafian.

As a soloist and chamber musician, Trisha has won numerous local and international competitions. Some of her most notable accomplishments include winning first prize at the American Protégé International Music Competition, where she made her solo debut at Carnegie Hall at the age of 15. Trisha has also had the opportunity to perform with the Richmond Symphony Orchestra after winning first prize at the Richmond Symphony Concerto Competition. In addition to solo performances, Trisha won first prize in the Friends Of Chamber Young Musicians Competition in 2012 and 2014. She has also had the honor of performing alongside Sibbi Bernhardsson (former second violinist of the Pacifica Quartet) and the Koerner Quartet. 

In past summers, Trisha has had the pleasure of attending music programs such as  Kneisel Hall, Aspen Summer Music Festival, Yellow Barn Young Artists, Credo, Banff Chamber Residency Program, and Bowdoin International Music Festival, among others.

Trisha received her Bachelor of Music degree in 2019 at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music with Darrett Adkins, fully funded with a Conservatory Dean Scholarship. During her time at Oberlin, she co-founded the Musical Storytelling Project, a program that introduces children from the ages of 3 to 10 to classical musical instruments through storytelling. In 2021, she received her Master of Music degree at the Eastman School of Music under the tutelage of Steven Doane and Rosemary Elliott with the ESM Graduate and Kohei & Iwa Watanabe Scholarships. 

As a teacher, I believe that every student, regardless of their age or background, has the ability to become a musician. It is my job to provide a safe and welcoming environment for my students to learn and grow. I believe it is important for my students’ learning to take place in such an environment so that they are free to be themselves and experiment with music and make mistakes. As a teacher, I want to create a space that supports each of my students’ musical participation and enjoyment. My goal as a teacher is to teach my students to become excellent cellists and develop a love and appreciation for classical music.

Teaching has always been an integral part of my musical life. I have 8+ years of experience teaching private and group cello lessons as well as orchestra and chamber coaching. During my graduate studies in Rochester, NY, I was on faculty at the Eastman Community Music School as well as a cello teaching assistant at the Eastman School of Music. I am currently on the cello faculty at the Vancouver Academy of Music School and teaching privately at my studio in Vancouver both in-person and online.
