Amy Brodo

I grew up in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and studied cello with the great Orlando Cole. His appreciation and love for music, not just cello music was so inspiring, and I often hear his words in my head when I'm teaching. After I graduated from the Curtis Institute which was the best place to learn chamber music, I went to Italy to play for 5 years. During that time, I started to study baroque cello, and played many many operas, ballets and symphony concerts with excellent conductors and soloists. Then after short tours with other groups, I joined the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and travelled with them for 4 years. Then off to England to study and play more Baroque music and learn viola da gamba. In 1993, I moved to California where I play and teach and am still enthusiastic and approach each new student with joy and love.
