Ms. Gilmore has been my daughter’s private cello teacher for 3+ years, and we could not be more pleased with the progress my daughter has made. Ms. Gilmore is a gifted cellist and an exceptional teacher. With her patient and positive nature, Ms. Gilmore has introduced my daughter to a depth and breadth of work not only increasing her repertoire, but also vastly improving her skills, performance, and confidence. In addition to direct instruction, Ms. Gilmore has prepared my daughter for blind auditions, competitions, and provided her with multiple master class opportunities. As a teacher, she tailors lessons to each child's needs, and teaches the best ways to practice. We feel quite fortunate to have found her!” - Fran M.

I'm an adult beginner at the Cello with some previous experience on other instruments. Working with Rebecca was a great experience. She is very kind and professional, her lessons are fun and well worth the price.” - Theresa P.
