Emma Schwarz is a classically trained cellist and passionate chamber musician hailing from Boise, Idaho. She is currently finishing her last year in a Bachelor of Music in Performance at the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music, studying with internationally acclaimed cellist Matthew Zalkind.

In the fall of 2017, Emma accepted an invitation to study for a semester at the Malmö Academy of Music in Malmö, Sweden with professor Samuli Örstromer. While studying in Malmö, Emma produced two concerts with two separate chamber groups, and performed in two master classes for the world-famous cellist Thorleif Thédeen.

Emma is finishing her teacher training in the Suzuki Method along with her Bachelors in the Spring of 2019 and has been accepted to return to the Lamont School of Music for a graduate certificate in Suzuki Pedagogy in the fall of 2019.

Emma loves teaching and sharing the beauty of music with her students. Her favorite aspect of playing music is the personal growth it engenders not just in music development but in all aspects of life. Studying music teaches one to constantly seek self-improvement; Emma cherishes this attitude above all others and seeks to instill it in herself and her students.
