Gabriel Beistline, Cello


Gabriel Beistline, Cello

2017《花樣的年華》經典名曲和原創音樂會

Being so fortunate to have studied with some of the greatest and most influential musicians of our time, it is my philosophy and need as a teacher to pass on the rich traditions, powerful stories and in depth knowledge of ‘music making’ to as many inquisitive minds as I can. My name is Gabriel Beistline and I have just graduated from Rice University obtaining my Masters degree in cello performance. I was a student of Lynn Harrell’s at Rice. I received my Bachelors degree in cello performance from the New England Conservatory of music in Boston, MA under Yeesun Kim, cellist in the acclaimed Borromeo string quartet. I had a large studio of cello students while in Boston and Houston and am beginning to fill my studio in San Francisco. My schedule is flexible and rates, negotiable of course. I specialize in teaching highly advanced, pre-college teenagers, but love teaching anyone! I have taught many complete beginners to advanced (or novice) adults. There is no person who should be deprived of their ability to learn music. I focus, of course, on technique however I like to incorporate music appreciation into the lessons as well. I show the student how to listen to the music and subsequently how to play it. If you are interested in lessons for your child, I have had many parents tell me that learning music has improved their child’s ability to focus in school and resulted in higher grades and achievements. Learning music simply makes you smarter! If you are an adult, many of my former students say it is a great way to relieve stress and unwind after work. Lessons provide a creative outlet for expression on a weekly basis and will pull you into the powerfully inspiring world that is music.
