Ceara Caisido started playing cello at the age of 8 years old in Bluffton, South Carolina. Being a child from a military upbringing, she moved and changed her schools quite frequently, the only constant for her remaining was the cello. Through music she has gone on tours to the UK, Europe, and Brazil and has performed for famous cellists such as Harro Ruijsenaars (Royal Concertgebouw) and Marcio Carneiro. She has studied with a number of Latin-American artists which have been influential to her performance and teaching style, as well as attended conferences in Europe, where she performed the Vivaldi Double Concerto in G Minor with the Vidin Sinfonietta. She currently holds her Suzuki Book One certification and is continuing her education through this methodology and continues to study with advanced pedagogues in her Summers. She is also a 200 Hour Certified Yoga Teacher, and practices healthy performance and practice habits with her students in the classroom, as well as providing them with regimens to ensure a healthy lifestyle outside of it as well. In her spare time she enjoys hikes with her dog and weight lifting.
