I've been teaching beginner to intermediate cello for 1 year. I played cello for 2 years in High School orchestra.

About Olivia
I love to create. The way I'm most comfortable creating is through writing; whether it's a song, a short story, a poem or a script. Writing has always been the bass line in my life; the heartbeat.

Music and film are both passions of mine. I graduated from Berklee College of Music where I studied Songwriting and Music Therapy. I was pushed to my absolute limits lyrically and musically within these majors, and I am so grateful for it now that I'm on my own creative journey.

I have a great deal of experience, but I am also still learning. I think it is very important as a teacher to always be learning, especially through their students. Teaching these lessons is, of course, about progress and advancement - but also about enjoyment, confidence building and positive encouragement.

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!

About OMAR
Knowing that you are looking for a instructor to teach you music puts a smile on my face. You see, music has been a part of my life since the age of 3. Some of my first memories are of me accompanying my father at home with his rehearsals or just singing together to have fun as a family. I believe music is a gift that unites people together bringing out our deepest emotions that words cannot express. At the age of 5 I received an organ and from that point on I embarked on a long life journey to indulge and learn more about music. In elementary, junior high and high school I was involved in any subject dealing with music. I joined school choirs, orchestras, bands, marching bands, jazz bands, musicals you name it. While enjoying all school music activities I was selected to join in honor county and state orchestras and choirs. In junior h
igh and high school I was selected to play for the Junior Pacific Symphony Orchestra, received scholarships to music summer camps, and was selected musician of the year. In college my quest continued with the Orange Coast College Orchestra, Praise Symphony Orchestra, Vanguard University Orchestra as well as guitar ensembles and college choir groups. I've also taken private lessons from Dr. Art David (Julliard graduate) in stand up bass as well as David Black (Pacific Symphony Orchestra) and classical guitar with Richard Glenn and David Murray. I've been teaching now for 15 years in guitar, classical guitar, bass guitar, stand up bass, cello, piano and voice ranging from 5 yr old to 65 yr old. My styles of music range from classical, jazz, rock, blues and contemporary. At this point I'm enjoying playing and singing in my church choir and worship team as well as teaching my two kids the joys of music. I hope you truly enjoy the joy of learning music whether it be through me or another teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher I require all students to set time aside to practice. For without it, it is only wasting your time, your money and my time. I don't expect a total dedication to it but I do want to see some effort put into it. A little practice can go a long way and the more you do it, the faster you will progress and the more you will enjoy it. We will first start off with what you want out of music and the level you are at and go from there. Student can bring their own music either thru tabs, music sheet or just by ear but one thing I do expect is a student to learn how to read music notation. We will go thru the regular warm up exercises, material practiced during the week and any new music for the following week. Correct techniques in how to hold your instrument or voice procedures will be addressed. Music theory will also be part of the lesson as well as ear training. At the end of either 3 to 6 months you will have learned the basics of music and will be playing songs for you or someone else to enjoy. I will make it a total relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere but some dedication has to put on the students' part.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Dedicated music room, guitar both classical and electric, piano, cello, upright bass and electric bass guitar

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide my own instrument. I can also provide music stand, small amplifier if needed and music material for the first few lesson until student provides for him/her self. Student must have own instrument.

*** Specialties ***
My way of teaching would have to be that they must learn how to read music while learning how to play an instrument.

Long Beach, CA

View Full Profile

Experienced cello teacher of 30 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages. I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of classical skills. I welcome adult beginners and provide many playing opportunities throughout the year for my students.

About Angela
EDUCATION

My musical education began while sitting on my mother's lap as she taught piano lessons. I began studying cello with a member of the Kansas City Philharmonic at age 9, and at age ten, I followed in my mother's footsteps to play the flute. I played all three instruments, (piano, cello and flute) until high school when it was became clear to me that I wanted to be an orchestra teacher. With this dream in mind, I began playing the violin as well.
I graduated from Drake University with a Bachelor's in Music Education in 1989 and again in 1999 with a Master's degree.

PERFORMANCE EXPERIENCE

As a youngster, I was the youngest member of the Kansas City Youth Symphony and the Kansas City Cello Choir performing with these two groups for eight years. I was chosen from applicants nation wide, to perform in Carnegie Hall and trav
el Europe with "America's Youth in Concert" and I was a three time All-Stater.

While attending Drake University, I played in the Drake University Orchestra and the Des Moines Symphony, and I was the winner of the Young Artist Competition awarding me the honor as featured soloist with the Drake Symphony Orchestra.
In 1993 I began playing with the Encore String Trio. This trio plays on a regular basis for weddings and receptions.
I currently play cello in the Encore String Trio, and viola in the Long Beach Community Orchestra.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My teaching experience includes nearly 30 years of private teaching. I've had the pleasure of teaching all areas of music; elementary general music, band, choir and orchestra. During my 20 years of teaching orchestra in the public schools, I implemented many innovative opportunities for my students such as children's concert which drew more than 700 people in attendance, strolling strings, cello choir and a viola choir, all of which proved to be very motivational for the students. My goal of teaching is to make music fun for all.

PHILOSOPHY

I believe music should be fun. I provide you with several playing opportunities throughout the year, ranging from solo to group playing. I provide large group playing opportunities at Christmas and at the recitals. Every group playing opportunity is accompanied with food and games for all. This studio is FUN!

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether you are studying for recitals, competitions, a music career or just for fun, you can expect equal attention to technique and musicianship in your lessons.
Lessons will be tailored to each students needs which may include flash cards, supplemental materials, ear training, sight reading, technical studies, scales, and solo work.
You are never to old to learn to play an instrument. Over half of my students are adult beginners. Because of this, I provide group playing opportunities and I organize a solo ensemble contest for my students. This gives opportunities to the adult beginners that they missed out on as a child. You will have a lesson by yourself, monthly mini recitals in my studio, and you will have the opportunity to play orchestra music as a group all right here in my studio. You are guaranteed to learn how to play your instrument, have fun and gain great friendships here in this studio. I'm looking forward to introducing you to our studio family.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The teachers studio is in a large room with multiple windows for natural light. The room includes instruments and stands in the middle of the room.

*** Specialties ***
I use the Suzuki method books. I am a classical player and I teach classical music.

Irvine, CA

View Full Profile

I have been teaching Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced cello students for the last 15 years. My studio is located in the Orchard Hills neighborhood of north Irvine

My lesson format encourages quick learning of concepts that include physical movements of cello playing, music theory, history, and general musicianship.

The length of the lesson is dependent on the level of repertoire. Beginners take 30 min. lessons while more advanced students need 45 min. or 60 min. lessons.

Each lesson is recorded so the student has a reference of what the music sounds like. It speeds up the learning time because the student knows what to do and what not to do. Watching the video is like having a lesson everyday between live lessons.

About John
I have had a studio since 2001. I teach all ages and levels of students. I'm very good with beginners. I am very patient and encouraging with my students. I am able to quickly diagnose problems and recommend a solution so the student can progress.

I am a member of the American String Teachers Association (ASTA).

I'm an easy going, very experienced, highly qualified teacher with a Doctoral degree in Music Performance. I help my students with their individual goals, whether learning for fun or for career. Variety of Methods and styles: Suzuki, Traditional, Royal Conservatory, non-classical, improvisation. Beginner level Cello students.

About Marta
I'm an easy going, very experienced, highly qualified teacher with a Doctoral degree in Music Performance. I recently moved to Long Beach and I'm excited to start my teaching studio here. I've been teaching privately and in group classes for over 20 years, both traditional and Suzuki methods. I have over 25 years of performance experience in classical music. I'm also very active in the non-classical scene I've performed with celebrities like Rihanna, Steve Wonder, Trisha Yearwood and local artists, from modern flamenco to jazz, pop, rock. I'm a recording artist and specialize in improvisation and creative collaborations.

The philosophy is to guide students' musical and educational growth through well rounded and personally tailored instruction that emphasizes practicing strategies in technical facility, musicality, history, theory and
music appreciation. My students enjoy discovering and strengthening their talents through my encouragement-oriented and patient guidance. I accept students of any level, starting from age 5 to adults. My students have won auditions to youth orchestras and colleges and some are now professional musician themselves. Whether you are learning for pleasure or for life goals, my studio is open to all.

I've been taking lessons with Marta for a few months now, as an adult, and am really enjoying it. Marta is clearly an incredibly talented and engaging musician who is able to translate her experience for folks, like me, who might be new to an instrument or music in general. She is skilled in music theory and technique and really focuses on ensuring her students have the foundational skills necessary to build on as they progress. I'd highly recommend her - she makes the hard work of learning a new instrument (or expanding your existing practice) incredibly fun and rewarding.

Carnegie, PA

Students can look forward to getting acquainted with the cello- from posture and properly handling the instrument, note-reading, and playing their first songs with the bow.

About Lisa C.
After playing the violin for over 20 years, Lisa was inspired to share the gift of music with others by her teacher, Susanna Sonnenberg. Lisa is a member of the American String Teacher’s Association, and has attended the 2017 ASTA National Conference. She currently performs with the Edgewood Symphony Orchestra. Lisa has played in recitals, the Chartiers Valley High School Orchestra, and was accepted to the 2006 PMEA District Orchestra. She has studied with Larry Weiss, Linda Andersen, and others. Lisa can’t remember a time before she learned how to play the violin; it has brought her great joy. Her favorite piece to play is the Bach Double Concerto in D Minor.

At 8 years old, Lisa fell in love with the violin. Throughout school, she studied with private teachers and played with the school orchestra. At home, her dogs were a great audie
nce.

Lisa went on to study history at the University of Pittsburgh, and later earned her law degree from Duquesne. She never forgot her violin, though, and continued to play in her spare time.

Music adds beauty to the world, and finally, after years of keeping the violin to herself, Lisa decided to share her playing with others. Lisa teaches traditional, classical method. The method books she uses include: Essential Elements for Strings, Samuel Applebaum, and All for Strings, among others. She supplements the technical exercises with repertoire from the Suzuki series. Lisa enjoys playing all types of music, in addition to classical, and teaches these songs, as well. Additional music includes pop artists like Taylor Swift, classic rock, electronic music like Lindsey Stirling, celtic, folk, and just about any other type of music you can think of. As a teacher, Lisa strives to be positive and encouraging. She believes that music should be fun, so her main goal is to make sure her students are having a good time!

Music provides a way to connect to the part of our world that only feelings can describe. It could be your favorite pop song or a sonata that was written centuries ago. In my lessons, I provide a space for you to better understand that special connection we all have to music. I've had the experience of teaching those from different generations for several years. Whether you are just starting out or have been involved in music throughout your life, my lessons will provide you with the opportunity to explore the truly wonderful gift that music can provide us. What draws you to love music? It is my passion to guide your path and help you find and unlock the doors to a greater musical experience.

About Alexander
I am a professional cellist with several years of experience on Violin, Viola, Double Bass, Piano, and Voice. I graduated from Long Island University with my Bachelors of Music concentrating on String Studies.

Students can expect to find an environment that will allow for an easy way to improve each week. Whether is technique, expression, rhythm, music theory, or any area that we explore that can use more foundation, I will provide you with a structured way to achieve your goals. You can expect a release in tension through the lesson and be able to play and perform with more freedom and confidence.

I am available to provide lessons for all ages and levels of experience. I have always had a medium to connect to music throughout my life. I began first studying the Piano at the age of 6 and progressed onto string instruments throughout gr
ade school. My passion for music drove me to want to understand more about what I loved. In university, I studied Cello as my primary instrument which provided me with several hours a day to connect to the Cello. I also studied piano and voice for my four years there with amazingly talented and well known musicians. My experience at college also provided the opportunity to get to know the predecessors of our modern day instruments. Performing on period instruments such as viols and the harpsichord gave me a deeper understanding of the inner workings of our present day instruments.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano for 16 years, and contemporary keyboard for 7 of those. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

My experience at college provided me the chance to travel and perform in highly regarded performance halls such as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and the Tilles Center. I have toured Europe performing with a string ensemble and a choir which allow me to learn and share music in several countries and cultures.

My personal passion in teaching music is finding ways that provide an ease to learning something new. Being educated in Alexander Technique, I brings me much joy to find a release in tension when road blocks arise. I will work hard to make learning easier to understand and grasp, releasing any built up tension and anxieties along the way.
