A passionate cello player and teacher

Wendy received her Master’s Degree in Performance at Rutgers University. Having studied with Bernard Greenhouse and William Pleeth, Wendy has played with numerous orchestras. When travelling in China, Wendy Solomon found that many instruments that were available for rental were so poorly set up as to be unplayable.

She also found a lack of knowledge in many instrument stores about how to set up the western instruments properly. So that she decided to give the course about the cello instrument care and repair section. Wendy Solomon tried to include many easy fixes to help the students with their instruments without having to find an expert.
