Lisa Terry is an avid chamber music performer and soloist on viola da gamba and cello, with a home base in New York City. She is an experienced teacher at all age levels, from beginner to advanced; her special expertise is in technique analysis and discovery; baroque viol solo repertoire; lyra viol; ensemble coaching (especially ‘how to work well as a chamber ensemble’). Lisa says, “I love to teach private lessons and coach chamber music groups. I have thought a lot about the technique of playing the viol and the cello, and my main goal in teaching is to help people make a good musical sound. I love the excitement of detecting what needs tweaking in students' bodies to allow the sound and the music to come out.” Lisa is a member of America's premier viol consort, Parthenia, and of Princeton's Dryden Ensemble, Brooklyn's Baroque Across the River and the Lyra Consort; she was an original member of ARTEK. With Parthenia, Lisa records for MSR Classics.
