Viola da Gamba
Jamie Gallupe is a cellist, viola da gamba player, and soprano who specializes in the budding field of historically informed performance practice. Like many who are drawn to historical performance, Jamie’s musical studies began with traditional cello pedagogy. However her taste for the more eclectic things in life took her to perform in a variety of nontraditional venues. This immersion in diverse styles and performance practices eventually led her to find her passion in early music.
As a registered Suzuki teacher Jamie draws on the philosophy of Dr. Suzuki in her private studio and strives to cultivate a nurturing environment where students are not only developing their abilities in the cello, but are learning to engage their minds and hearts through music.
Jamie completed a Master of Music degree in historical performance at the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University in the spring of 2019. There she studied baroque cello and viola da gamba with Dr. John Moran as well as voice with Ah Young Hong. She completed her Bachelor of Music degree in cello performance in 2017 at Eastern Michigan University with Deborah Pae. Previous teachers include Richard Zeller, Eric Gaeslen, Rajan Krishnaswami, and Jean-Michel Fonteneau.
