Private Cello Teacher

I am a professional cellist and private educator based in Los Angeles, California. I have seventeen years of cello experience, including a Bachelors in Music from the prestigious University of North Texas. I earned my Masters of Music in Cello Performance at Oklahoma State University, where my research included pedagogy and performance practice.

My former teachers include Shawn Sanders (2006-2010), Nikola Ružević (-2014) and Dr. Meredith Blecha-Wells (-2016). I have performed masterclasses for artists including Phyllis Young, Bion Tsang, Dobrila Berković-Magdalenič, Johnathan Ruck, and Kari Caldwell.

My primary education used Suzuki Method materials along with exercises by Popper and Dotzauer, and later more advanced studies such as Feuillard, Duport, and Piatti. My teaching uses these resources, in addition to personalized exercises, to help my students achieve their musical goals. These goals may include repertoire which is strictly classical, contemporary, or a blend of the two. ...

Mr. Crider was such a great teacher! I appreciated the way he adjusted every lesson to my needs and patiently helped me work through technique.
I would recommend him to anyone wishing to begin or further their classical training on the cello.
Maris
Donny always takes extra care to meet the individual needs if our daughter. He is kind in his approach, praising accomplishments and hard work. However, he does challenge her to continue to improve in musical knowledge and performing with excellence.
Mikki
My son was privileged to study with Donny for two years. He made MAJOR strides in improvement with his cello technique during that time. He was challenged and encouraged each week. Donny's clarity was a great help in growing technique. Listening for musicality was never overlooked. We highly recommend him as a teacher.

I provide a fun experience of learning to play and share music. My philosophy in working with students is to curb their interests with my vision for their success with technique and musicality. I want my student to not only become good cellist, but also enjoy music on a theoretical and historical level. My overall goal is to make a connection with people that will last and music can be an outlet for growing as a person.

Mr. Greer did a fantastic job teaching my daughter Clarinet. He is very professional and she got a perfect score on all of her NYSSMA solos that she worked on with him. I highly recommend Mr. Greer for private lessons.

Worked with my daughter and she really enjoyed the lesson. She asked me if she could continue to take lessons with Christopher. He seemed to be able to easily have her gain confidence.

He is an amazing teacher. He helped me tremendously with my embouchure issues and my sound. His friendly style and energy really motivated me to practice more. Can't wait to get back to school and audition for first chair in band.

Very good instructor. She has the right temprament for me being an older student.

She was very thorough..plus her style of teaching will definitely benefit me in the long run!!
Debbie N.
Jeanmarie helped me to learn the proper way to hold the cello and the bow. She watched carefully to be sure I maintained that throughout the lesson. I am pleased that she is going to be sure I learn to play the cello well to prevent injuries. She also gave me some very basic bowing and finger exercises to practice this first week so I begin to build correct muscle memory before I go on to working with sheet music.

Private Cello Teacher

Nice to meet you! My name is Eunice and I am a cello teacher. I received my bachelor and master degree in cello performance at the New England Conservatory of Music, and am currently pursuing my doctorate degree in cello performance at Indiana University. I am a teaching artist for the Boston Philharmonic teaching artist program where I teach elementary and middle school, and adult students in group settings, private lessons, as well as orchestra sectionals. I am also a part of the music program “Teach to Learn” as a cello mentor where I have virtually connected and taught cello to a student from Syria.

I will help you develop technique, musicality, and rhythmical skills that will make way for a freedom of expression. Solid technique is necessary for one to make music. The more tools one has the more variety and dimensions the music has. This will be done through emphasis and practice of scales, etudes, cello method books, as well as caprices for students who are more advanced.

He took into account what I wanted and needed to learn and gave me plenty of stuff to work on. I was a little unsure about the online format but with a little tweaking on my end it was fine.

She keeps things moving, while also paying attention to those little details that make all the difference in performance, like bow hold, fingerings, length of up bow and down bow, and many other little things.

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’ …

What is a Yamaha Cello? A Detailed Look for Cello Students

Who made your cello? Who carved the body, stained, varnished, and assembled the instrument, including the label visible through the f-hole which bears their signature? Many musicians consider the maker of their instrument, or luthier, a point of pride. There are famous luthiers, like Stradivari and Guarneri, whose names are synonymous with masterpieces of craftsmanship. These masters innovated many of the standards for modern stringed instruments, and so many luthiers might include on the la …
