Private Cello Teacher

Everyone comes to the cello for something different. It is my biggest goal as a teacher to shape a course of study that fits each student's interests and aspirations with the instrument. I have experience in a broad variety of teaching: beginner students of all ages, students exploring a hobby, and young advanced students aspiring to careers in music.

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.

Private Cello Teacher

In my lessons, I plan to develop a connection to my students, allow for room to grow and improve as cellists, and to elicit proper playing/performing techniques. Lessons are individualized for every student, as students aren't all equal.

Students can expect to learn the fundamental technique for learning cello or viola da gamba, through listening and playing exercises. My goal is to make lessons and practicing more like playing, and less like having to do something difficult. We'll find the right book to work from, and go from there! I will especially appreciate students who are genuinely interested and motivated and can set aside a bit of time each day to practice.

About Christien

Hi! I have a degree in Early Music Voice from the Longy School of Music of Bard College, and have studied voice with private teachers intermittently over the past two decades. I also have a Master's in Cello Performance, and can teach cello at the beginner to upper intermediate level. My experi

Collins had his first cello lesson with Christien today. He love it! Christien is super patient and very very professional. She corrected Collins' posture and the way to hold the bow. Christine gave very clear instruction, and made the lesson lot of fun.

Together we will learn the beginning essentials to playing the cello and reading cello music. I focus on good technique from the beginning so a student should expect to spend a good amount of time in lessons on technique exercises and posture checks. We will also learn music based on the student's experience.

The cello has always been my greatest passion in life. I am originally from China and am currently pursuing my Master's degree in Cello Performance at Azusa Pacific University. I have been performed internationally, included Asia, the USA, and Europe. My first instrument was piano, but I soon discovered my passion for the Cello, which became my primary musical focus. I have a lot of patient and passion for teaching. I believe everyone can learn to play the cello with hard-working and proper training.

My passion is to get students excited about music and provide one-on-one instruction to students to kindle their love of music and of cello, and spark their curiosity to go deeper into music. I have been teaching since 2010, and my favorite thing about teaching is how each student brings something unique and exciting to our lessons!

Kate is the BEST. I immediately felt at ease despite learning a completely foreign instrument as an adult. Kate is incredibly supportive, talented, and funny, which is important when you're feeling incompetent and a little sweaty.
Jayne R.
Kate is a fantastic cello teacher - you can tell that she has extensive teaching experience. She is patient and supportive and really helps with the fundamentals of learning cello in a relaxed environment. I've been taking music lessons since I was a little kid (now I'm a mom of two boys who are learning to play piano -- I'm a beginning cello learner) and I can say w/o reservation that Kate is a great teacher and I'm going to learn a lot!!
Sarah
Katie has been the best online teacher! I started out very new, and having played only the clarinet years ago. Katie is very patient, and she keeps learning interesting and fun. She is also very flexible, I have a busy schedule and she is always super understanding! I look forward to our lessons every time!

"Lenna is out of this world! When I first undertook, as an adult beginner, to learn the cello, I often found myself frustrated by the challenge. Lenna changed the way I approach my studies. She taught me to FEEL music, to find the beauty in slowing down and repeating, to have patience with my practice and to appreciate my progress. She has improved my rhythm, vibrato, sound quality, knowledge of music theory and more. She is always gentle and supportive during our lessons and approaches learning with a humility I only wish I could have. She likes to end lessons by guiding her students through a few minutes of improv, which I deeply enjoy. A talented cellist (and musician generally); a wonderful instructor; and a kind, supportive, optimistic personality. I love working with Lenna and strongly recommend her."

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 …
