Welcome to the infamous home page of cellist...


Nathan, age 18, started playing that great instrument, the cello, when he was a mere seven years old. He has pursued the cello with great passion for music. Nathan resides in Tempe, Arizona and has studied with such great artists as Carol Matthusen, and Dr. Thomas Zelle.

Nathan has recieved various honors and awards for his excellence and devotion to the cello. To name a few, Principal Cellist of the Arizona All-Region Symphony, and a prestigios member of the Arizona All-State Symphony. But, his greatest musical experience came under the direction of Dr. Thomas Zelle in 1994-1996 where Nathan achieved the assistant pricipal cellist position in the Phoenix Youth Symphony. Considered to be one of the best youth symphonies in the country, the Phoenix Youth Symphony gave various concerts and just recently arrived back from New Zealand where they played in six concerts all around the beautiful country.

Nathan plans to attend Arizona State University, in Tempe, on a full musical scholarship beginning in the fall of 1996. There he intends to study under Professor Taki Atsumi.
