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.

About Laura

*** About Me ***
I am a classically trained cellist in NYC. I am currently working towards a master's degree in cello performance at a top NYC conservatory. In addition to performing music, I love to teach cello lessons to aspiring musicians of all ages! My musical aspirations stem from an undying love of music and my wish to share this with others. I am friendly, cheerful, energetic, and very patient, which creates an easy atmosphere for students to tackle the challenges of mastering the cello.

*** Equipment ***
For lessons at my home, students only need to bring their instrument and their current repertoire.

For lessons at the student's home, students need to provide their own instrument, a music stand, 2 chairs, and the repertoire we are working on. I will bring my own instrument to lessons. I can assist you in renting a cello if you do not already have one.

Malcolm P.

New York, NY

Experienced cello teacher available for eager students of all experience levels! I structure my lessons around what the students would like to learn, while building a strong foundation using traditional classical technique and repertoire. Specializing in classical and jazz, I typically use different methods for both depending on the students path. One being more audtiroally and the other using actual sheet music. If you are serious, I would love to help any way that I can.

About Malcolm

Malcolm has also shared the stage with musicians and bands such as James Lauderdale, Della Mae, Del McCoury, Old Crow Medicine Show, Ron Carter, Paquito D’Rivera, Patrice Rushen, Toshi Reagon, Terri Lynn Carrington, Dave Liebman, and Christian Howes as well as collaborating with choreographers such as Twyla Tharp, Julia Gleich, and dance company Brooklyn Ballet.

As a composer he has written numerous compositions for solo cello, small ensembles, and short films. His solo cello composition “Solitude” has been premiered as a collaboration piece with choreographer Julia Gleich and is currently
being orchestrated for solo cello and orchestra that will be performed by Forsyth Youth Orchestra in 2015.

He is currently a member of Turtle Island Quartet and The Carolina Chocolate Drops.

Valeriya has been a great cello teacher for me, as a beginner student. She has helped me to build a strong foundation in basic skills and inspired my confidence. Valeriya is kind and personable, and at the same timer honest in providing constructive criticism. Each lesson, she takes detailed notes to support me in my practice throughout the week. Last but certainly not least, she is flexible with her schedule and always punctual.

I feel very fortunate to be her student. Her teaching style is thoughtful, kind and full of humor. As an an adult beginner student with her I am learning the importance of correct posture, arm and hand position but also understanding meaningful playing comes from soft and supple and not fom tension and strain. I only feel encouraged by her patient, enthusiastic and expert approach.

Lian Q.

Flushing, NY

I've been teaching Cello for 10 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of music performance, study abroad in China and France! Within the first few lessons, you'll start some finger exercise and as time goes on, you'll be able to play whatever you want to play! I also specialize in Chamber music available for your lessons to help you play with orchestra in the future. I love working with students of all experience levels!
