Sofia Zappi

I am a Brazilian cellist and rock/ice climber. I play and teach all music from Bach to Samba.
Teaching Philosophy

I believe in trusting my instinct when learning and teaching. Technique is vital, as is passion and inspiration. I think it is important, as a teacher, to inspire the student to tap into his/her passion/desire to learn and explore, using both his/her intelligence and instincts.
