"Wesley Baldwin's studio is not only a hub of immense concentration on all aspects of physically sound and musical cello playing, but a home, where support and encouragement impart a rare synergy of personal and communal growth."

— Matt Gabriel, current UT cello major, from McAllen, TX

"The time I spent at the University of Tennessee studying with Dr. Baldwin was the most integral development of my education. Under his influence I not only advanced my ability to play the cello, but also laid a foundation to become a working professional musician."  

— Jeanine Wilkinson, MM in cello performance, 2008
Currently cellist with the Symphony of the Mountains, Oak Ridge, Bryan, and Roanoke Symphonies

Jeanine Wilkinson"My experiences with Dr. Baldwin's teaching have not only fulfilled my hunger to master my cello technique and become a better performer, but have also given me the tools to perform and teach my own students successfully. If I had the possibility of going back in time to study cello, I would still choose Dr. Baldwin as my teacher. The UT cello studio possesses the qualities of warmth, friendliness, encouragement, and resources for a lifetime."
