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.

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.

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

Levi (Cello lessons with Theresa S.)

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
