Cello Lessons

My home studio offers a nurturing environment in which to take private lessons in cello, piano, and string bass. I have been teaching since 1999. Private lessons will dramatically improve a student’s skills, technique, and confidence. One on one instruction helps the student advance at their own pace while targeting areas of needed improvement. Continual reinforcement of proper technique, playing with a good tone, and listening to quality music recordings will create good habits that will enable the student to advance more quickly and with a high level of skill. Other areas of concentration include music reading, composer study, music theory, ear training, and stage presence. Each student has his or her own unique needs. I believe it is the responsibility of the teacher to understand these needs and work with the student in a positive and nurturing way.

Overview

Kathryn Estes is a cellist, pianist, and bassist and has taught private lessons, early childhood music classes, string ensembles, and music theory since 1999. Mrs. Estes holds a Bachelor of Arts in Music Therapy with a minor in Cello Performance from Sam Houston State University. Mrs. Estes is involved in regular teacher training, and regularly attends workshops on teaching, music therapy, cello, piano, and bass.

Before moving to Arlington, Texas, Mrs. Estes was the principal cellist of the Kingwood Pops Orchestra for 15 years. She participates in both solo and ensemble performances with various orchestra's and area churches. In high school she played with the distinguished Virtuosi of Houston. She has traveled to Eastern Europe and China performing with the Sam Houston State University Symphony Orchestra and has performed with the SHSU Chamber Players. Since 1994 she has regularly played with Joyous Rhapsody's string quartet at weddings, AARP dinners, church functions, at nursing homes, and for other special occasions. The group has performed for the NASA astronaut holiday banquet, Home School Stars Banquet, The Singing Men of Texas, and for Rosemarie Trapp (of the Von Trapp family).

Beginning in early childhood, Mrs. Estes generated a passion for music and has dedicated her knowledge and abilities to her students. Her professional organizations include the Arlington Music Teachers Association, Southeast Texas Suzuki Association, and the Suzuki Association of the Americas.
Kathryn and her husband David live in Cypress along with their son and two dogs. They enjoy traveling, volunteering in the community, and spending time with family and friends.
