Thomas is honestly an amazing musician and teacher. He was really patient with me. Despite having to deal with major timezone differences (as I live in Myanmar), he took the time to figure it out. Also, he helped me figure out the stuff it took me months to figure out. He also really knows what he's doing. I learned so much in that hour of practice. 10/10 would recommend him.

My son had his first lesson with Chialing today, and he learned a lot from her. She was very detailed in teaching and was very precise when correcting mistakes. She went through what my son needed to work on quickly yet completely. He looks forward to his next lesson with her.

Thomas was incredibly flexible and punctual with our lesson times. Through three years of lessons with Thomas, I was able to develop key technical skills and confidence in my playing. He takes his time when I run into difficult passages and is incredibly encouraging. Definitely recommend!

Online Cello Teacher

I believe that students should be given an opportunity to be shown how to practice. This is so that when the instructor is not there to guide, the student is able to know step-by-step of what they are supposed to do. Practice sessions should include scales, etudes, and solo repertoire. I will include individualized videos for weekly emails for each lesson with how to break down and practice the scale, section, or piece.

"A fantastic cellist with a thirst for continually pushing her own musical knowledge and limits.

Johanna has been a great contributor to many orchestras I have conducted. She continuously seeks to further her knowledge to help make the music come to live and freely shares this knowledge with others around her. She continuously strives to find a perfect balance between technical acuity and musical phrasing/interpretation in her playing. I cannot overemphasize the benefit of her skill in this area, as it results in very technically competent musicians, who are also expressive!

She is friendly, encourages other struggling musicians. She always shows up to rehearsals/concerts early, with a smiling, can do demeanor, and a willingness to help wherever there might be a need.

She is professional and personable, she is always my first recommendation to parents and students looking for 'the right' music teacher."

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 …
