Michael is great

Having a student like me, who's schedule is constantly shifting last minute, is no easy feat, but Mike manages it flawlessly.

As a beginner cello student but with some musical background, Michael has been great at adjusting lessons to my particular needs and helping me get on my way to being a better musician.

He's always incredibly patient - which with an easily distracted student as myself - is beyond commendable. He's easy going and professional in his teaching, and I would recommend him to any aspiring cellists, whatever their age or level.

Flawless teacher

Michael is hands down the best teacher I have ever had. Dealing with me as a student is not easy due to my schedule and lack of focus, Michael is always calm, cool and professional with a great sense of Humor. I HIGHLY recommend him for anyone any age as a teacher.
Thank you Michael for always being cool and teaching me things I never thought I could learn.
Laura C. New York, NY

I emphasize a physically relaxed and technically accurate approach to cello playing so that students are free to create music without limitations or physical discomfort.
Though playing an instrument takes hard work, it should be a fun and enjoyable experience too! We will work together to ensure that you are learning pieces that interest you and inspire you to reach the next level. By the end of each lesson you will know what to work on for the week and exactly how to practice in order to achieve the most effective results.

Students will learn the fundamentals of music theory and history while focusing on improving their technical facility on the cello. Students also work towards building their comfort with the instrument by practicing increasingly complex exercises and repertoire.

Lessons will be highly interactive and geared towards your personal goals as an aspiring cellist.

Benjamin L. New York, NY

I've taught cello for the last 12 years, and try to infuse the same enthusiasm into my students as I experienced in my journey to where I am today. I use both the Suzuki method books and the Applebaum String Builder books to start with beginners, depending on level and experience, with an emphasis on music reading. After that, the student's progress will dictate the best route to follow.

About Benjamin

In my years of teaching, I have developed an individual approach with each student, young or old, according to different needs and learning styles. I believe it is never too early or too late to begin learning, and it is my hope that music making through this instrument will be as enjoyable and passionate an experience for you as it has been for me. Whether you are looking on behalf of your son or daughter, looking to take on a new challenge later in life, or anything in between, I look forward to hearing why you want to learn to play the cello! (House calls available too!)

I've included my bio below, for those who may be interested.

I hope to instill in my students a strong fundamental technique and the knowledge of how music works. I strive for my students to have a rich understanding of what goes into music making and how to learn the discipline and focus that it takes to learn an instrument. I encourage my students to be ambitious and set goals and above all, I believe in teaching about the importance of art music and how absolutely anybody can participate in it.
