I believe that every individual learns music skills differently. As a teacher I seek to design lessons that provide each student with the opportunities to grow in a creative and enjoyable way. Providing a customized schedule for each student is essential for engaging and encouraging musical growth. I have discovered that as students combine interests with their music study it brings more enjoyment to their musical experience.

Online Cello Teacher

Hi Everybody! My name is Rhody, my pronouns are he/him/his, and I’m just the person you’re looking for. I have 22 years of cello-playing under my belt, and I have been teaching to kids, tweens, teens, and adults since 2012! I’m incredibly patient, an avid encourager, and I LOVE helping others discover their own latent gift of music within them. I specialize in beginner and intermediate cello.

If you’re looking to learn a new skill, or if you know the cello already and would like a refresher, get in touch with me! All of our lessons will follow a customized plan that meets your specific needs. You'll be learning everything from correct posture to fundamental theory, and we'll even throw in some pop songs if you like!

About Rhody

Having spent the last decade traveling the world and then going cross country in the U.S., I have seen many beautiful things that tint my life a pretty shade. My music is a facsimile of the world I experience around me, and I am heavily influenced by it's beauty. My goal is to get the beauty YO

Rhody is a fantastic teacher who excels in making you feel listened to and has the patience and understanding to best enable you to grow.
Nikita
When I picked up guitar again for the first time in a decade, I wasn’t sure I would be up to the challenge. But every step of the way, Rhody has been communicative, patient, and a hoot to work with!
From walking me through music theory fundamentals (sometimes over and over), to helping me understand tempo, Rhody has helped me gain confidence in myself as a musician!
I can’t recommend him as a teacher enough.
Courtney
I had picked up the cello last August with absolutely 0 experience with strings. I had one other teacher when I first began and unfortunately needed to take a break due to financials.

Fast forward to this year and I had quite accidentally found Rhody's information but I am so glad that I did!

He is a fun, patient and knowledgeable teacher. He explains things in a very simplistic way and makes sure you're both on the same page. He understands that life gets in the way of practice sometimes but kindly pushes you to keep trying and keep practicing (that IS the only way we'll get better, y'all).

Since I've started practicing and learning through Rhody, I feel like I actually understand how the music is ought to be played...and that's a sure step in the direction of truly understanding such a beautiful instrument.

I could go on but I'll leave it with this: please go through Rhody! You won't find a better teacher!

He also gives you simple analogies why some things need to be done a certain way...and as a side benefit, you will learn about music history as it relates to what you are doing."

"I have studied with Dr. Brenda Leonard for the duration of my college career, and recently performed my senior recital as a Music Education major. Dr. Leonard is not only one of the most accomplished performers I have known personally, but is a truly superb educator. She holds her students to an appropriate standard of excellence in their playing and gives them the support to attain it, adjusting her teaching style based on the needs of each student. Furthermore, she blends down-to-earth practicality with artistry better than anyone I know. Dr. Leonard not only teaches the cello excellently, but invests in her students' lives personally. It has truly been a pleasure studying with her as a mentor."

Is Cello Hard to Learn? Read THIS Before Taking Lessons

Many beginning musicians wonder, “Is cello hard to learn?” The process of learning the cello is not difficult, but it’s important to keep in mind that the cello is not an instrument of instant gratification. It does require focused, daily practice time and a good teacher to guide you along the way. How far you progress with cello is a direct result of the amount of quality time you put into practicing the instrument. Even someone who puts in just 30 minutes a day will notice a signi …
