Some comments from adult students:

"What I like about Gael's teaching style is that she doesn't just teach one technique. If the student doesn't relate to a particular method, then Gael tries another. She has multiple pathways of understanding how to teach, how to relate to a student's needs and modes of learning."

Adrienne Miller

"Learning cello, I've learned so much about myself. Our time together has been so valuable. I can't thank you enough."

Belinda Pearl

"I'm not just learning cello, I'm learning to love music."

Mitsuho Yasuyo

"I have enjoyed your teaching, a good balance of humor, beauty, and hard work. Thanks so much for the introduction to the cello."

Andrew Ivers

"Thank you! It's really been a pleasure playing with and learning from you. You've made it a lot of fun and unintimidating (which is not an easy feat)."
