My students should expect a well-rounded education on cello involving technical studies, playing in a variety of styles including, playing solo works, and having a great time!

About Nicolas
Hello there!

I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and raised in Miami, FL. I started my musical career at the age of 8, singing in chorus, playing the recorder, and shortly afterwards moving to the guitar, and the violin.

When I was 15, I was nominated for a James L. Knight Award in Music, and I performed as a violin soloist with the Miami Beach Symphony Orchestra, and the Greater Miami Youth Symphony playing Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 3 in G major. One of my most memorable experiences when I was a kid! In high school, I formed my own string quartet and we would perform all over
the South Florida community especially at hospitals and for the elderly. At 16 years old, I was also given an internship with the New World Symphony, conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas, for about 2 years. During this time, I was able to take lessons from master violinists such as Marc Thayer and Glen Cherry. During this time, I was given the opportunity to perform with the New World Symphony at 17 years old for pops concert conducted and performed by Chuck Mangione in El Doral, FL.

I later on accepted a scholarship for violin performance at the University of Miami for my Bachelor of Music, and earned my Master of Music from Florida State University. I also taught string orchestras for 10 years at Ruth K. Broad Bay Harbor K-8 Center, South Florida Youth Symphony as conductor (and now composer!), and conductor of the Greater Miami Youth Symphony. I was appointed Assistant Conductor of the Alhambra Orchestra for two seasons under the guidance of my high school orchestra teacher, Mr. Reginald Nicholson (1947-2011). It was here where I was able to work on my compositions, orchestrations, and conduct a fine group of musicians.

I now live in sunny Los Angeles, in the Sherman Oaks area, and I'm loving the new change. I am eager to share my knowledge with new students on various subjects such as learning a string instrument to learning a different language. Please feel free to ask me any questions.

I am looking forward to getting to know you and your goals for learning!

LESSON DETAILS
I have been teaching music as an adult, certified teacher since I was in college, but have done teaching as early as 15 years old.

I will help you create a fantastic technical base so you will be able to play with ease as your skill level develops, all while keeping the lessons fun and engaging.

MUSIC STUDIO
Piano, Violin, Guitar, Music Stand, General Teaching Aids, Recording Equipment.

TRAVEL EQUIPMENT
I can provide a music stand and basic materials but the student is expected to have their own instruments and to buy the music I recommend. I can recommend various vendors/shops where you can buy the ideal instrument for your lessons.

EXPERTISE
I am classically-trained musician that also specializes in Tango performance, Latin/Jazz, Rock, and a variety of other styles. I believe that training in the classical aesthetic will create a firm, solid foundation to crossover into other areas listed above. With a good dose of technical exercises, scales, and a variety of repertoire, my students always turn out well-rounded, ready to tackle almost any kind of music they wish to learn.

Thank you for stopping by and let me know what you would like to learn!

Nick has been my nine-year old daughter's violin instructor for a little over a year. Not only has she made tremendous progress with her playing, she has had a great time during the lessons. Nick will challenge her when he feels she is ready, but will also slow down if necessary to review, to make sure she is using proper techniques and developing as a musician. My daughter is fortunate to have such a talented musician and composer as her violin teacher.

Cello lessons in my studio, at your home, or on-line.

About Jessica
I have 20 years of playing experience along with a Bachelor's degree in Cello Performance. I was the section leader of my university's orchestra as well as a full-scholarship member of the university quartet. As a professional gigging musician, I have played with Il Divo, Mario Winans, La Jolla Symphony, Doctor's Symphony, Porta Caeli Chamber Players, and the quartet La Dolce.

I am a member of MTAC (Music Teacher's Association of California) and can sign my students up for Certificate of Merit. This is a music study program with an annual evaluation and written assessment. Stand-out stu
dents will be invited to play at the Branch Recital.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons differ slightly depending on the student. In general, it starts with scales for intonation or working on vibrato, moves on to an etude or exercise, and culminates with work on a piece of music. But not every student works well with this method, so I will add in some musical worksheets and ear training games for those that require lessons with more variety.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can come to your home to teach. I will bring all necessary method books and teaching materials.

Jessica is an awesome teacher for my 8th grader. She has an excellent lesson plan which she has catered to my daughters skill level. Jessica is flexible in helping her learn school assigned music pieces and has given her the one on one attention and tips that she was lacking with school orchestra. The online classes have been easy and convenient. I'm so glad we signed up.

This is Bekah's auntie...I am usually working on my computer in the other room when Bekah is taking online lessons. Lessons are well organized, and expectations clear. Bekah totally LOVES Jessica as her cello teacher. I played cello in my school orchestras from 4th grade through high school. I truly appreciate hearing Jessica work with Bekah. She musically encourages and challenges. We are very pleased! :)

I started cello at age 5 with Maureen Lovell and have performed a lot of the classical repertoire, both solo, chamber and orchestral.

For complete beginners, I start with plucking (pizzicato) before introducing the bow.

About Mark
Born and raised in England into an artistic and musical environment, Mark won a place in the Christ Church Cathedral choir at 7 with his cello playing and voice. During the 5 years at Oxford, Mark sang in concerts at the Royal Albert Hall, Festival Hall, St. John's Smith Square, performed for radio and television broadcasts and sang on many recording sessions the work of Bach, Handel, Purcell and many others from the English choral tradition.

Mark has composed music for several commercially released films, noted for his work in the immersive environment of the full dome planetarium, some of
those titles play across the world, from Japan to Europe, in well over 100 theaters.

In 2009, Mark was selected to compose special music for the International Year of Astronomy and an extravagant documentary production that aired on PBS as a science special for several years on the 400 year history of telescopic astronomy since 1609. The planetarium film covering the same story became the most played across 1500 theaters worldwide for 3 years in a row and can still be seen in many planetariums.

Mark began teaching piano and music theory in 1998, eventually building a large roster of pupils in his home area in Surrey, England.

In 2009 though, he moved to Los Angeles for film scoring work reasons.

Mark also teaches English as a second language.

He has a degree in Law and completed a year of Engineering studies at Southampton University at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research. Mark completed a Master's degree in Music at the London College of Music on the campus of the Ealing Film Studios.
