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!

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 that are the building blocks of great musical performances. I will help you develop the musical knowledge a skilled cellist needs to play expressively, such as the basics of harmonic structure, meter and rhythm in music, phrasing and dynamics and enough music history to understand the style of the music being played. And of course how to read sheet music. As a professional musician I bring you my extensive experience playing various instruments in dance bands, chamber groups, and orchestras and singing Broadway, opera, jazz, and choral music. I am well prepared to teach you the skills you need to meet your goals. I keep my knowledge and skills up to date by studying the latest journals and books, attending workshops and master classes, listening to recordings, attending live performances, participating in music associations and taking private lessons. I search out and use the latest computer-based and internet resources to help you learn faster and support your home practice. As a student you are encouraged to play in groups with others, and I help you locate and prepare for playing in groups that are appropriate for your age and skill level.

My goal as a teacher is to help you reach your musical goals! My lessons consist of scales, duets, and solo repertoire. Each lesson is different depending on the student I am working with, but the core of my teach is based around these 3 areas.

$10 off each lesson during the holiday for new sign-ups. The regular listing price is $37 for 30 mins. Only one week left for new students. I love teaching strings. Cello was my first instrument. I focus heavily on bow technique. I have gotten students into youth orchestras and passed college auditions. I like to use the Essential Elements and Suzuki books. I also offer online group lessons at a highly discounted price. I suggest that all my students join. This is a great option for kids while class is out.

Ms. Strange was so helpful during my time working with her! She's patient, kind, has a wonderful sense of humor, but above all that: an outstanding cellist.

Theresa is a wonderful teacher. I am a beginning cello student but with 12 years of upright bass experience, and she tailors our lessons to match my classical knowledge and play style with the basics

Theresa is one of the most amazing teachers I ever had. I am an adult student, so I was a bit nervous about starting the cello; but Theresa is so laid back, it was easy to feel comfortable around her
