With a love for both music and teaching, Elisa Saltet has been a musician and a pedagogue for over fifteen years, teaching private cello lessons and group singing and instrumental classes as well as being a full-time elementary and middle school teacher. Her developmental teaching approach is rooted in a holistic study and firsthand observation of child development, resulting in lessons that are tailored to a child’s age and abilities. She also teaches adults who consider themselves beginner to intermediate level. Elisa emphasizes both the technical skills and the musicality to provide students with a solid foundation in and enthusiasm for cello playing, approaching each lesson with joy and rigor.
Elisa studied cello performance with Darrett Adkins at the Oberlin Conservatory. Her love for chamber music has led her to spend many summers at Greenwood music camp as a student and staff member, and she currently lives and teaches in Oakland, CA. Elisa is available for in-person and zoom lessons and chamber music coaching.
