My name is Kira McDaniel, and I am a cellist from Seattle WA. I am currently a senior undergraduate student at WWU, majoring in Music Performance.
I have been playing the cello for over 10 years, and have played in many pit orchestras in Bellingham, Everett, and Seattle. I have experience teaching elementary school students, as well as college students.
I have received many scholarships throughout high school and my undergraduate degree for my playing and dedication to music. Music is my passion, and teaching is a way for me to reach out into others lives to share the magic of music.
I specialize in proper, healthy technique that uses as minimal amount of tension and muscle usage as possible, to keep the body able to play music for a lifetime.
Here are some testimonials from my past and present students!
"Kira was my son's Cello teacher while he was in the 6th grade. She was consistently on time and had a wonderful attitude towards teaching. My son always looked forward to his lessons with Kira, she always came prepared for answering his questions and always had new material to teach him. Kira gave a review at the end of each lesson; she would give him praise yet was not opposed to letting him know what he needed to work on. She was knowledgeable about how to keep him on task and motivated. She always touched base with me at the end of the lesson as to what had been taught and practiced and let me know how my son was doing. Kira has a true passion for music and a real love of the Cello that exudes through her. She has a true love of the Cello and her happy disposition and big smile when speaking about music will have you excited as well!" - Torrie Barnes
I teach at the Wild Hare Music School ( http://wildharemusicschool.com ), and offer 30-50 minute lessons (depending on availability of studio time). One lesson a week is highly recommended, and the length of lesson depends on the age, level, and schedule of the student.
