Cello | Draper

Lune (they/them) has been playing cello since Summer 2013, and hopes to spread musicality and expression through their teaching. They love to get to know new people including students passionate about music and their craft, no matter the skill level, or if they're barely discovering cello as a new passion; what matters most is that the lesson is fun and the student enjoys cello as an art form and a way of self expression through music. Their teaching philosophy revolves around keeping it fun and flexible, but with enough structure to have a productive use of time with an individual. Above all else, if in 10 years the student can pick up a cello and play something that they learned with them, that's what is most rewarding even if they don't go into the performing arts fields. Lune is currently pursuing a BFA in cello performance at Westminster College in Salt Lake City and is currently taking private lessons with Dr. Lauren Posey, Ph.D. Other instructors they have learned from include the NOVA Chamber Music Series' Principal cellist, Joyce Yang Ph.D., and California-based teacher and clinician, Renata Bratt, Ph.D.

“Music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.”
- Billy Joel
