Private 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!

Great first lesson. Learned new methods to improve bowing. Looking forward to the next lesson
Paul D.
I am coming to the cello as a brand new beginner. I have play around with some fretted instruments, ukulele, banjo, etc. But Irina was super at getting me relaxed, focused on basics and encouraging me with small, but important mechanics and technical details. I have taken other music lessons like sax, so could compare. I totally enjoyed the start of my cello training.
Oh, btw, I'm retired and over 65!!!

Lucas is a highly trained and highly gifted cellist and teacher. As someone who has taught alongside him, I can say first hand that he has an incredible ability to connect with students and inspire them to do their best. His love of music is infectious, and he is constantly coming up with new ideas to help his students understand difficult concepts. I cannot recommend Lucas enough as a teacher, cellist and person!
Patricia Ryan, cellist (Artaria String Quartet)
Lucas is a very patient, kind-hearted mentor to all his students. As part of the Stringwood Chamber Music Festival Assistant Faculty, Lucas has experience teaching a wide age and experience range of cellists and chamber groups, from early middle school to collegiate level. Lucas is able to thoroughly address complex musical and technical issues in a nurturing, understanding environment. It has been a privilege to witness Lucas' passion for music engage and excite the students to dive deeper into the repertoire and ignite their motivation to challenge themselves to the next level of musicianship. I highly recommend Lucas as your next cello and chamber music teacher.

Justin was very good about checking in a couple days before the lesson. Very professional attitude, but very fun for my son as well.

I'd already been a guitar major when I started taking lessons with Justin. The way he approaches learning was really influential for my guitar playing even, and I had a fun time working together.

"Our ten year old daughter was being exposed to string instruments in a school situation. We decided at the beginning of the year to engage Mr. Averill on a private basis. It is truly astounding the progress she has made. He has introduced her to a variety of material and motivates her such that she practice literally every day. He is helping her with musical theory as well as playing the instrument. He has the perfect balance of insistence on excellence while praising and motivating. She will no doubt gradually increase her daily practice time as more is asked of her as her competency improves. It is hard to over state the progress she has made while maintaining an ability to have a positive motivated attitude. Mr Averill is a master at reading her. A true gift for a music teacher"

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 …
