Dr. Whitcomb strives to make a personal connection with each one of us. He tailors his lessons to each of his students to ensure that we all get the most we possibly can from our one-on-one time with him.

I know that I can always rely on him to help me with any problem I might be facing and he will give me the best advice he can.

My skills as a cellist have increased at an exponential speed due to the diligent instruction of my cello professor, Dr. Whitcomb.

He is always able to contribute phrasing ideas and technique changes to make the performance of the pieces easier and more musical.
