Bio: Alan is a cello coach focused on enabling cellists to learn how to learn the cello and achieve greater levels of performance themselves. Alan works during the day in corporate learning and development and seeks to find ways that industry learning best practices can transfer over to help cellists improve their performance. For example, Alan posted videos of cello pieces on YouTube so that his students could watch them before and after the lesson to help them prepare for and reinforce what they are learning. Alan learned cello technique from teachers such as Ellen Bridger and Carey Cheney. He has been a member of various local orchestras such as the Orchestra at Temple Square.
