When Sydney was 10, she received an opportunity from her elementary school to learn the cello. Eagerly, she picked up the instrument and began down a long path that would lead her into a music career. For five years, Sydney studied with Kyle Champion of the Long Beach symphony. During this time she participated in multiple youth symphonies as well as performing in her high school's competitive performing arts program. Sydney now studies at the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music under the direction of LA Phil cellist David Garrett. Blessed with being in the LA metro area, Sydney has gotten many opportunities to play in various quartets, trios, as well as participate in cello camps and masterclasses.
