Anyone, no matter the age, background, or ability, can learn to make music if the desire is there.
As a cello instructor, Mills' primary goal is to encourage relaxed, natural movement to enable musical expression.
Learning to read, understand, and perform music can open up a new world of experiences. Mills' lessons include fundamental technique, music theory knowledge, and repertoire interpretation. That being said, she firmly believes that each student is unique and enjoys the challenge of adjusting to creatively meet individual needs and goals.
