Suzanne Dicker's Cello Teaching Studio

   Hello! I'm a cello teacher living in Princeton Junction, New Jersey, 08550 USA. I'm passionate about music, I love playing the cello and I especially love to teach the cello. I'm continually trying to improve my teaching so that my students enjoy their lessons and that my time with them might also help to nurture their spiritual selves as well as to build up healthy physical/musical skills. My teaching experience and training is as follows: I have been teaching the cello privately in my home in New Jersey since 1997 and before that I taught in London, England for 7 years. I've also taught the cello in public and private schools.

 My private students usually range in age from 8 to 16. I give weekly lessons in my home where I have a cello studio as well as a large room with grand piano for classes and recitals. I take all of my students to perform in nursing homes. Some of my students enter competitions. They have won honors in NJMTA competitions and masterclasses with Steven Isserlis, Peter Wiley and Jonathan Spitz. Many of my students perform in the local youth orchestras: www.yocj.org and www.gpyo.org 

I am certified by the British Suzuki Institute as well as the Suzuki Association of the Americas. I also hold NJ state teacher certification in Music. I received a BA from Rutgers where I studied music theory, music composition as well as cello performance with Yehuda Hanani and Paul Tobias. In London, I studied chamber music performance at Morely college with the violinist Perry Hart, and I studied the cello privately with Lowri Blake

I am a cellist in Sinfonietta Nova, a symphonic orchestra based in Princeton Junction, New Jersey. 

I'm the founder and director of Trinity Strings, a multi-generational string ensemble that performs music for people living in nursing homes.
