Qualifications & Experience

I have been teaching music for more than 20 years and I would like to expand my studio. I teach cello, beginning violin, music theory, basic music history, and music appreciation. In addition to teaching I am the Music Director/Founder of the Culver City Chamber Orchestra. I studied with the best cellists in California and Michigan. I had the opportunity to study the Los Angeles Philharmonic cellist, Daniel Rothmueller, as well as New England Conservatory graduate Alexander Reisman. I have two studios one in Reseda and one in Culver City.

As an adult, I need learning to be a dialogue AND I need it to be fun. Lessons with Arlette are both. Not to mention, I've already learned more in two months than I did in seven with my last instructor. She obviously very much enjoys what she does and is pleased to be able to share her knowledge. She's inspiring!

The first year I started taking cello lessons from Ms. Arlette, I won a $300 scholarship from Los Angeles City Elementary Schools Music Association. Ms. Arlette has helped me learn more advanced music, and her way of teaching is very clear and easy to understand. She emphasizes on technique, sight-reading, and musicality, all of which, through her guidance, I have greatly improved on. She is a very kind and patient teacher who takes time to explain concepts thoroughly. She is also a fun teacher. I have been taking lessons from Ms. Arlette for the past four years. I enjoy my lessons and recitals.

Our son has been taking Cello lessons from Arlette for 1 1/2 years now and has improved tremendously. He is 14 years old and still looks forward to going to lessons every week. Arlette is really good at finding a student's strengths/likes to keep their interest, as well as finding the areas they need to work on. Highly recommended.

My 11 yr old daughter started beginning cello with Arlette about 9 mos ago. Arlette is a fabulous musician and educator! Her lessons are clear and concise and best of all, lots of fun! My daughter just had her 2nd recital and we could see her progress.
