I love sharing my passion for music with all of my students - ages 5 through 72.

You can always recognize a skilled cellist. The music sounds smooth and graceful, the tone quality is lovely. Unskilled cellists just don’t sound the same. What’s the difference? Skill of course. The skill to play a very large instrument with relaxed hands and arms by using your core muscles to transfer your body weight through your arms and hands into the cello. Not every cello teacher knows how to teach that.

I believe that my unique combined musical and medical background makes me a better cello teacher. In addition to my graduate and undergraduate musical training and extensive musical experience, My knowledge of human anatomy and mechanics of how the body works can help you develop habits that will lead to the beautiful singing tone that’s makes the cello a favorite.

We will then build on those habits to develop good intonation, a lovely vibrato and a variety of bowing techniques ...

I received about 10 lessons from JoAnn and feel very good with the results. I started playing guitar and singing in a small band and knew that I needed help. Joann educated me with many warm up lessons, a good start on reading music, and numerous exercises towards reaching pitch that will also save my vocal chords from harm. It's up to me to practice and use the available tools that JoAnn has introduced me to while I take a break from lessons while traveling. JoAnn is a professional singing teacher.
Abigail
She is great! My daughter really enjoys her lessons and we appreciate how thorough JoAnn is.
Angelica
JoAnn is a very patient and kind teacher. In the last few lessons I've had, she has taught me more than Ive learned with my previous teacher of 8 years. She is very understanding and teaches her students everything we need to know to be a good vocalist. I would highly recommend her.

Private Cello Teacher

I've been teaching cello for 30 years and my students have gone on to play with different ensembles like symphony orchestras. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play simple songs by reading and by ear and as time goes on you'll be able to play more complex repertoire. I specialize in classical, style but I can teach you different kinds of styles, typically use Kummer method and Suzuki repertoire but I use a variety of method and books. I have the following tools available for your lessons: cello, computer program, sound system, Tuner and Metronome . I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Jennifer
I studied under Leilah for several years and I couldn't have asked for a better teacher. She was my first teacher; she showed me the basics of cello and taught me in Suzuki books 1-6. One thing Leilah does that not many cello teachers do is play with her students. At my lessons, Leilah always had her cello out and was ready to demonstrate a technique or playing style, which helped immensely with my understanding of music. Having Leilah as a teacher has given me the skills and preparation I need to play in college. I would recommend her to any cello student who is willing to work hard to improve.
Jeni
Ms. Leilah has an in depth understanding of the Suzuki Method but also uses many inventive ideas to make lessons fresh and motivating!

After just my first lesson, I can already say that Jessica is an excellent instructor. She is thorough and very kind in making corrections to ensure long term success and the proper foundation to build skills. As an adult, I am grateful to have a skilled instructor who knows technique very well and has a gentle and professional manner. She is open to questions outside of the lesson time, and provides very good feedback. I am looking forward to weekly lessons!

I teach with the goal of imparting a comprehensive musical understanding to my students. As a result of my instruction, they will learn to listen actively and critically, make educated expressive and technical decisions, and become familiar with the standard repertoire.

In a teacher-student relationship, I value mutual respect and a spirit of open dialogue. This means that I treat my students as complete human beings and equals. I never dismiss a student’s interpretive ideas or enforce my own. Rather, we come up with something compelling together through ongoing conversation. I strive to create a safe and stimulating learning environment where students can comfortably experiment and express themselves.

I place great importance on honing technique, which I consider as the foundation for musicality and expressive freedom. To that end, a significant portion of the work I set for my students (especially those who are intermediate or advanced) will be technical in nature. During the ...

He's an outstanding teacher on a technical, musical, intellectual, and mentor level. Can't recommend him highly enough."

"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 …
