Private Cello Teacher

I've been teaching music for 15 yrs on guitar, piano, bass, cello and bass. My students have ranged from from 5yrs to 75yrs of age. I have seen many student go on to join orchestras, bands, broadway shows or simply continued their education to a university or college. Being able to read music profeciently has given me the opportunity to teach off many method books but like to use Alfred Method, Mel Bay and Frederick Noad Method books. I teach many styles ranging from classical, jazz & blues, rock, contemporary and pop. I do stress and recommend all my students to learn how to read music and usually by our second or third lesson they will playing simple songs. I am here to help you make music!

Private Cello Teacher

Experienced cellist with very active playing career in orchestra, chamber music, and solo repertoire. 5 years of experience teaching young advancing cellists. Currently pursuing a Bachelor's in Cello Performance, and I keep myself very busy performing across the country, because I believe staying very active performing helps keep me fresh and interested in always finding new solutions which I can pass to my students. Lessons focus on good sound and developing nuanced and musically interesting and innovative interpretations of pieces.

Online Cello Teacher

I have over 30 years of experience teaching cello. Every student has different needs; I work with you at whatever point you are at; beginners through advanced students welcome. I have a doctorate in cello. I've played cello all my life; in recent years I have learned (and can teach) 5-string cello, as well.

I recommend lessons 30 minutes in duration for beginners, particularly children. (Adult beginners can choose 30 or 45 minutes.) Students who can play longer pieces definitely need a little longer lesson so we get through everything.

I use Suzuki books for their inexpensive repertoire but I do not teach using the Suzuki method nor do I teach rote playing. I supplement these books with technique materials from Rick Mooney (Position Pieces, Thumb Position) and studies by cellist-composers of the past. If you have an interest in another area of playing, let's talk and find pieces that interest you.

About Brenda

I love teaching cello! I’ve spent 30+ years of my life doing it and I think I’m good at what I do. :) One of the best parts of teaching is connecting you with your dreams. I’m open to teaching music you’ll enjoy playing and I love talking about cello and my love of classical music. I’m happy to hel

She is spunky and patient. I’d recommend her to anyone.

Brenda is an amazing musician and teacher! She is personable, a great listener, and is obviously incredibly talented in her craft. I am proficient at the Flute, and was looking to try something brand new. So glad I found Brenda! This was my first time taking a lesson online, and it was amazing how she could pick up so many details through the online medium. I really feel like with her lessons the techniques I’m learning feel less intimidating, and the music feels more fun. I would recommend Brenda to any musician, whether you are picking up an instrument for the first time or trying to hone a specific part of your craft. Seriously no need to look further!

My daughter has been studied with Mrs Brenda for 3 weeks. She loves to study with Mrs Brenda. Mrs Brenda is a very professional teacher, she is always patient and fun. my daughter learned many new skills from her. Thank you.

"Keats is a skilled and perceptive teacher. I am dealing with many beginner issues and he always has multiple suggestions and ways of explaining how to accomplish the techniques I am working to master.
I am an accomplished flutist but just love the cello so decided to take lessons. He truly seems to enjoy sharing his knowledge.
I feel so fortunate to have found Keats because he really cares about me as an individual although I am truly old enough to be his grandmother. Outside of our lessons, he has sent me links to recordings, a new bow which I have purchased and am thrilled with, and various other cello-related matters of interest to a beginning cellist.
He does not insist that there's only one way to do things and has studied with a variety of teachers himself. He comes from a musical family so is very knowledgeable about classical music. A true musician who understands the love of music.
Lastly, I want to recommend Keats because he has a very gentle, kind manner and praises my work when it is good. He encourages me through frustrations and sets reasonable goals at each lesson.
I am also a music teacher and would recommend him for a student of any age. I know that the relationship that develops between teacher and student is crucial to a student's progress, and Keats is a real and caring person in the lesson, not some drill instructor. I think he would be fabulous with children and certainly relates very well to adults. Give him a try!"

"Ellen is wonderful. She's been playing cello for over a decade and received her degree from Berklee College of Music. Knowing that, I anticipated that she would be somewhat intimidating in our lesson together, but she was the exact opposite-- she was so down to earth, and she was very encouraging when I felt like I was not getting the hang of things in time. She's also very receptive to your needs/desires. We just barely crossed paths while she was in town, and I was merely hoping to get a feel for the instrument, so we had a very playful (but informative!) experience. I know that she also has a wealth of formal training, so no matter what your pace--she's your girl. She also has a cool band of her own, which you should check out!"

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 …
