Inspiring cellists from diverse musical backgrounds, learning styles and walks of life, Erika's teaching philosophy is to encourage and enrich students as individuals; the way that they learn best.

Erika is in demand as a private and guest instructor across Canada, and is also experienced in coaching actors to play the cello on film, such as in the music video Man of Two Minds by The Trews, and Nina Dobrev in the 2017 remake of Flatliners.

Erika shares her love of music at her cozy Toronto studio, Havergal College, Branksome Hall, and the Miles Nadal JCC Suzuki Music Program, Toronto.

Performance opportunities, Suzuki method teaching and Royal Conservatory exam preparation available.
