About the Cello Studio



EMU CELLO at Eastern Michigan University provides our young artists with exceptional musical training and a broad range of learning opportunities to lead vibrant careers in the arts. We encourage each of our cellists to be resourceful, entrepreneurial, and active ambassadors of art in their communities.

With the expertise of Professor Pae, each cellist receives one-on-one personalized instruction, which hones and strengthens students’ aural, technical, and musical abilities alongside guided career mentorship. Cellists also participate in a weekly studio class as an extension of their lessons, which is a nurturing avenue for reinforcing and developing practical, achievable artistic and pedagogical goals; cello ensemble, performances on- and off-campus, and a number of engaging activities at the University.

Graduates of the EMU CELLO studio have gone onto prestigious music programs throughout the country and received highly sought-after assistantships at the Peabody Conservatory at Johns Hopkins University, Bowling Green State University, University of Missouri, and the University of Memphis. Many have gone on to establish private cello studios of their own and currently direct orchestral programs throughout Michigan and beyond.

Current and past alumni have also participated in music festivals including Interlochen Arts, Detroit Civic Youth Orchestra, Brevard Music Center Summer Institute & Festival, the National Youth Orchestra of Canada, the Viola da Gamba Society of America Conclave, the Formosa Chamber Music Festival, and PhoenixPhest.
