Hi! Depending on what the student enjoys, we will focus on learning songs from a musical genre (classical, pop, jazz etc). We will also learn music theory, note reading, improvisation, fingering, bow technique and much more. It is very important to me that my students are enjoying what they are learning, so they will be inspired to practice and persevere!

Fantastic teacher. Very patient and is so talented and knowledgeable.
Alex G.
Thank you for all the amazing lessons via online! Highly recommend Cello!!

I am a beginner cello student and started online lessons with Cello in February 2020. Prior to starting, Cello helped me find the perfect and affordable instrument and bow in local Los Angeles area. He walked me through step by step what to purchase, how to take care, and everything else. Then, he recommended to purchase beginner music and technique books. Everything was very organized and structured. He was so kind and went above and beyond.

If you are a beginner and scared to start online lesson, don’t worry. Cello will walk step by step with you. He is patient, very experienced, and a great teacher.

I look forward every week for our lessons! Thank you Cello!

Mr. Guo is my daughter’s cello teacher for about three years now and she loves it. She improved a lot and now in honors string ensemble at her school.

Mr. Guo was first recommended by my Colburn Community School mom friends where our kids take dance/vocal classes. He was already teaching several private students from this community and heard many great things. At the time, Mr. Guo was a Master of Music student at the Colburn School and we would all go to his amazing recitals! Absolutely great performance and musicality— it inspired my daughter greatly.

I highly recommend Mr. Guo’s lessons. He is kind, very polite, and very knowledgeable in teaching.

My name is Jerry. I LOVE music and passing my knowledge on to others. I have played many different instruments in many different kinds of bands. It all one major thing in common, it was FUN! If you are not having fun while learning an instrument you won't want to learn. Lessons can be fun AND educational at the same time. I have had many parents tell me I'm one of the best teachers they have ever seen. (A couple of them were public school teachers themselves). I truly want my students to succeed and I will do everything in my power to help them accomplish that!

Extremely unprofessional to abruptly cancel scheduled/paid lessons without the courtesy of a message or any notice because this instructor was unhappy with a 12-year-old child's progress. Very surprised by and disappointed in the manner in which he handled this situation, certainly could have been handled with more respect and maturity.

Jerry is a wonderful instructor. I wasn’t sure how online lessons would go but they have been seamless and fun and my son is making progress with the bugle. I would highly recommend this format and this teacher. The convenience and quality of instruction are excellent. We are signing up for more lessons and may move on to another instrument once my son feels confident on the bugle.

This means that I will be helping with intonation and other technique by giving exercises for the challenging passages. Lessons will be customized according to the goal of the student.

I had to stop because of the pandemic. Lessons were thorough, she was insistent and very detailed.

While a bit humbling Alex definitely helped me fix some glaring technical issues, particularly with the bow.

She helped my 12 year old daughter prepare the Saint Saens Cello concerto (1st movement) for a small performance. My daughter played more spiritedly after her session with Alex. She was especially helpful for a specific bow technique.

She Is a lovely young woman who obviously enjoys her craft and is skilled at teaching in a compassionate way yet sets a high standard for her student. It would be important for a student to be self-motivated to PRACTICE diligently. Jessica does not demand that a student practice, but expects that her student will have practiced.

I had no experience with string instruments and feel I'm on my way to playing the cello competently. Byron keeps things fun and moving along at a good pace. He's especially good at diagnosing the cause of any difficulties I'm having."

Cello Thumb Position: Where to Place Your Fingers & Hands

Cello thumb position is one of the big leaps of technique for advancing cellists and is one of the skills that sets more advanced students from the intermediate. This new technique opens up the higher ranges of the instrument and allows us to play more advanced solos and etudes. This technique is not something you should rush into though! Make sure to take things slowly at first and master the basic concepts before moving on.  When Should You Focus on Your Cello Thumb Position? There have to …
