Together we will learn the beginning essentials to playing the cello and reading cello music. I focus on good technique from the beginning so a student should expect to spend a good amount of time in lessons on technique exercises and posture checks. We will also learn music based on the student's experience.

Playing Cello is challenging and the enjoyment is extreme. That's why many people are ready to go through this tough way in hope of being able to master this magic instrument. I have played Cello for 20 years and I cannot imagine to live without this instrument. In this course I'll try to help you to go through an academic way of playing and ease the learning of the instrument. I'll use different books in this course. We'll play scales, arpeggios and lots of small pieces out of different resources. You may be able to learn many instruments on your own, but Cello is absolutely not one of them.

I teach cello from beginning to lower stage of intermediate level. I make it fun and enjoyable to learn songs and play them with high level of expression, musicality and strong vibrato. In order to achieve those goals, I work with you patiently to play scales, arpeggios, etudes and songs from different sources, among them Suzuki books.

Nader was fantastic! I took Violin lessons for a few years from a couple different teachers, and he taught me new, interesting things I'd never learned before. He's also very patient and nice.
Carolina V.
He is very patient and has excellent communication skills. I have no knowledge of how to play the violin or music of any kind. After my first lesson I strongly feel he will be my private instructor for many years to come. I left with proper technique of how this instrument is to be cared for and good posture when practicing. He also informed me of the books we will be incorporating into my lessons. Most importantly homework is given and he is very patient and explains everything at your level.
Kira
I was very pleased with my first lesson with Nader. He is very kind and patient. We covered some basic points with what we'll be covering for my lessons with the cello. His instructions and explanations of technique is very clear I feel my lessons with him will be very beneficial and enjoyable.

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!

Maria is wonderful. I am an adult first-time learner, and I couldn't imagine a better teacher. Maria is patient and funny but also extremely organized and attentive to accuracy. The beauty of her own cello playing stuns me every time. I found her by accident, and feel extremely lucky. Highly recommended.

Maria is so helpful, got down to business and now I have plenty to practice before my next lesson. I am grateful she feels comfortable having me in her home studio for instruction. I would find ZOOM meetings quite difficult since I am truly a beginner.
Thank you, Maria!

Christy
Claire makes sure that she answers any questions that I have. She goes at my pace. She's a great teacher! She is so experienced and patient.
Christy
Taking lessons on line is sometimes challenging; for instance, the instructor is talking but sometimes her words become garbled, like watching television and the picture and sound fades in and out.

I thought the teacher wanted me to just memorize the one section (the tune); she wasn't clear the first time (the first lesson) on memorizing the tune for playing All of the exercises without looking at the music notes. So, yesterday's lesson wasn't as good as I had hoped it would be.

LisaJo is an incredible teacher. I was hoping to take in-person lessons, but due to the pandemic I (reluctantly) opted for online instead. All my doubts have been cast away... LisaJo's infectious enthusiasm leaps through the screen and her competencies as both a teacher and musician are evident through her ability to provide clear, creative instruction that translates directly into progress. I always look forward to my lessons - I'm learning lots but also having a great time with it :) I super recommend LisaJo if you're looking to learn violin!
Meng
LisaJo is so patient and she shows me lots of details I should pay attention to.
I highly recommend her to other students.
Katie
Best teacher ever!!!!! I went from knowing absolutely nothing about the violin to playing in the Manitowoc Symphony Orchestra after 2yrs of lessons. Through our lessons together Mrs. Lisa Jo taught me technique yes, but she also taught me so much more. She instilled in me a love for music and it’s many intricacies that I will cherish forever. Truly an amazing teacher

"I have taken several lessons with Mark and I think he is an outstanding cello and music teacher. Mark has a substantial knowledge of cello, music and other instruments and his method of teaching is so great that it has make me feel that even with the crazy busy life that I have I can tackle the cello and I will have a good measure of success at my own pace in the future. He is incredibly patient, encouraging and good natured while totally engaged in getting you further in learning music and the cello in this case. He has sent information every week of relevant material to be covered in the next class which is very helpful and he adapts very well to your own style, whether you want to start playing right away or you prefer more emphasis in music notation, etc. He makes himself easily available to answer any questions or to discuss changes in schedule and to top It off he is a really nice person. I would recommend Mark heartily and enthusiastically to anyone who wants to learn cello of any musical instrument he teaches."

What are the Hardest Cello Pieces? How to Get from Beginner to Advanced Player

As a beginner I often told myself I would know I am a really great cellist when I could play Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee at full speed. To my young ears, this simply had to be one of the hardest cello pieces with its high range, chromaticism, and famously fast tempo. As my musical career continued I worked on these and other skills to reach a point I could begin learning the piece confidently, and it was only a matter of time before I achieved my goal. Of course, this wasn’ …

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 …

Is My Cello Too Small? How to Know You've Found the Right Fit

At some point, your young cellist will grow out of their instrument. Growing out of an instrument is an awkward time for everyone involved and it is not something that happens suddenly. More often than not, finding that it is time to upgrade to a larger instrument is a slow realization that something is wrong in the musical force. If you can consult a professional, please do so!
