CELLO

 
ESTHER BOATMAN:

My education for teaching cello started early. At Drake University I had about 28 preparatory cello students - those not enrolled for college credit. After moving to the Adel district, I opened a studio in 1985 for cello and piano. My goal is to assist students of all ages to learn and to enjoy music. Everyone has ability, and I work with each student to develop that talent.
