I am qualified, adaptable, and professional. I have been teaching for the past 10 years from beginners to intermediate, kids to elders.

Private Cello Teacher

I've been teaching cello for 10 years and my students have gone on to participate in All-State orchestra, and play in professional orchestras. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to produce sound and play simple songs and as time goes on you'll be able to read music fluently and perform with ease. I specialize in Classical, and typically use Suzuki and Klengal scale books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Byron

I love music. I love it so much that I have made it my career. I have been playing the cello for over 20 years and have studied in universities since 2002. In that time, I have worked extensively with great artists such as, Rhonda Rider, Joel Krosnick, Andy Mark, Nicholas Tzavares, and Mark Steinbe

I'm an adult and I've been working with Byron for 5 months now. We've worked in person and now through video during quarantine. It's been a great experience and I would surely recommend him!

I had no experience with string instruments and feel I'm on my way to playing the cello competently. Byron keeps things fun and moving along at a good pace. He's especially good at diagnosing the cause of any difficulties I'm having.
Sheila
Excellent for someone new to the instrument.
Conor Burnett
Honestly could not ask for a better teacher. I was struggling to find a teacher in the area and boy did I pretty much hit the jackpot. Great teacher, super intelligent and understanding. I am a beginner but would highly recommend him to anyone. Not only does Byron play beautifully but he knows exactly what and how to teach you. Im always excited for my next lesson, so you should contact him and set one up too!

Let’s make music! Over 10 years teaching experience in many genres. From the first lesson, my focus is musicality and expression. I teach using technique and repertoire in a way to help my students gain the skills to fully express themselves in music. I have the ability to teach both the traditional path of classical training as well as a customizable program to meet the needs and requests of a diverse musical society. Whether your goals are performance, theory knowledge, or composition, I look forward to helping you achieve them!

Clark is the best teacher I have ever had! He’s so patient with me and has made the transition from in person to online lessons so easy. I would highly recommend him for any of your music needs. He is very knowledgeable about all of the subjects he teaches and he is able to explain everything in many ways so that I can understand. You can’t find a better teacher.
Hannah
Wow! I have never enjoyed playing the piano more than I have taking lessons from Clark. He has helped me a lot with the technical aspects of playing but has always helped me to understand how an emotional connection to the music is important as well. I’ve improved by 3 books within a short time period because of his patience. He also takes notes during our lessons and sends me a copy of them so that I can review while I practice. I have recommended his teaching to several of my friends and he is going to start teaching my nephew soon. Great teacher! And makes learning an instrument a great experience!
Juliet
My kids have been taking from C. Evans for almost three years. Not only has their musicianship improved, so has their confidence! He has been able to directly improve my kid’s musical experiences and helped them with auditions for school amongst other things. He encourages them while providing high class teaching. My kid’s never leave their lessons discouraged or bored but always ready to learn more music and excited for the next lesson. He is very communicative and will always work with your schedule and inevitable conflicts. I HIGHLY recommend him for piano/cello/music theory lessons.

Online Cello Teacher

As a passionate cello player, I want my students to have fun but also really understand their instrument and the music they are playing! Students will learn their scales through the circle of fifths, shifting positions, vibrato techniques, music theory, and performing with an accompanist. They are expected to have fun but to work hard - it’s totally worth it!

About Melissa

I have been playing piano for 23 years and cello for 16 years. I love sharing music with others and seeing them grow to love music as well. I am currently a pianist for the KC Ballet’s ROAD program. I have a Bachelors of Music from Lindenwood University. I have been a piano accompanist for 7 years.

Great first lesson with hands-on playing, not just an orientation. Looking forward to the next lesson!

I decided to take up cello at age 57 as a new instrument. Melissa did a great job teaching proper technique and method and was really aware of my personal goals for what I wanted to achieve. She has a great gentle and encouraging demeanor. I would highly recommend Melissa.

Melissa was very patient and such a great teacher on my first lesson with her. It went by so fast and I learned so much!

"I've had other instrumental teachers before (piano, trombone, cello, and voice (voice is another story)) and Michael is probably the best instructor I've ever had. Even when I don't have the time or ability to practice as much as I should he just encourages and makes me feel good about the work I did do. He explains things very clearly, really knows what he's talking about (which for the cello is really important and not as common as you'd think), and just makes our lessons enjoyable. I'm only a beginner but I already have so much more confidence in what I understand about the instrument in my hands. It's kind of awesome."

I tried different teachers in the past and my kids would not cooperate. I’m so grateful for finding Naseem! The best part is that he pushes them to improvise and introduces them to other genres such as jazz, middle Eastern music etc... my kids are always practicing and looking forward to their next lesson.

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 …
