Jane Lee




One day during my teenage years, I had an epiphany. I decided to become a really good cello teacher. As I was practicing the d minor Bach Suite that day, something clicked where I heard all of the beauty of the harmonic progression and understood how the different voicings and phrases worked together. Knowing that I had to seek out the best pedagogues in the area, I began studying with Milly Rosner and then to Irene Sharp. Now that I have been teaching for about 20 years, I have enjoyed teaching students not only about how to play the cello but to become good musicians and students of life. I am constantly evolving and coming up with new ways to explain concepts of cello technique, good practice habits and musical phrase interpretation. I especially delight in coaching chamber music and getting students to learn and make music together. I studied at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music where I received my Bachelor’s Degree. I have performed with most of the regional orchestras in the Bay Area: Berkeley Symphony, Oakland Symphony, Vallejo Symphony, among others. It has been a joy to focus now on teaching students and getting them excited about making music and the playing the cello.
