Originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, Margaret Guldborg has performed in professional orchestras and taught on four different continents over the past 20 years. After receiving her Masters degree in cello performance, Margaret moved to Denmark where she won a job as the Assistant Associate Principal Cellist in the Odense Symphony. From there she moved to Malaysia where she performed and taught until she and her family settled in New Zealand eleven years ago. Since arriving in Wellington, Margaret has dedicated her time to teaching students of all ages and abilities while maintaining a busy performance schedule with chamber music and freelancing with acts as varied as The Sound of Music, 7 Irish Tenors, and even Eminem. Margaret is a regular with Orchestra Wellington, and has also performed with Christchurch Symphony and New Zealand Symphony Orchestra.
My teaching is centred around a solid technical foundation. This is hard work, but the pay off is well worth it! Once you know how to do something correctly, the rest is easy! I strive for all my students to gain a love and knowledge of music through cello, and once a term host a “Cello Party”, where all the students in my studio get together to celebrate and share what they have learned.
