Santos - Cellist - Providence, Rhode Island, USA

Morgan Santos

Providence, Rhode Island, USA


I am a classically trained cellist, although I am able to perform in a variety of musical genres. As such, I freelance and teach throughout the greater Rhode Island region. I currently maintain a private studio of about 30 cellists, and teach at area institutions, including the Moses Brown School and Salve Regina University. I meet the learning needs of my students, rather than forcing the pupil to learn in the manner that I teach. I enjoy taking creative approaches to teaching the instrument whenever possible. I always ensure that my students have a number of performance opportunities through recitals, masterclasses, and other events.




I'm a classically trained cellist, holding a Bachelor of Music degree in Performance from Rhode Island College. While classically trained, I'm easily able to perform in other genres, too.

I am also one of two co-managers of La Bella Musica, one of the top string ensembles in the greater Rhode Island area. We have extremely diverse repertoire for various special events ranging from wedding ceremonies, retirement parties, baptisms, among others!

I am an experienced studio educator as well. My music work is 50/50 - teaching and performing. I teach everything from private lessons to coaching ensembles. My students regularly place in area festivals and competitions, and have been accepted to college music programs.
