Mr. Nathan – Cello Teacher

Mr. Nathan - Cello Teacher

Mr. Nathan Chan has experience teaching cello students of all ages (4 to 61) since 2005. He possesses an Associates diploma (ARCT) from the Royal Conservatory of Music Toronto and was awarded the Silver Medal for achieving the highest mark in his Grade Ten cello. Among his university education, he also possesses a Master of Education and a Master of Arts (Critical Disability Studies). He has experience working with people with disabilities, including cello students with special needs. He is an orchestral and chamber musician, a skilled speech arts & drama instructor, an accomplished visual artist, and has taken foundational courses in expressive arts therapy and training. His approach to teaching cello is “intermodal,” in that his music and drama students must learn to be expressive by means of not only one art form. Music cannot be properly expressed without the aid of visual art, spoken word, and dance/movement. He also places great emphasis on learning about relevant music history to his students. Nathan also has years of corporate experience and among that, has been a corporate trainer in Intercultural Communication in Norway. Mr. Chan also speaks fluent Cantonese and Norwegian.
