Private Cello Teacher

I teach beginners, intermediate and advanced players. I'm delighted to teach young people to learn about music and appreciate people of any age who are interested in learning. We will work every week with scales and arpeggios (chords) and progress through literature that is appropriate for your skill level. And we will definitely have fun!

I am 43 years old and was scared to take on such a difficult instrument but I really wanted to learn how to play the beautiful cello. I had my first lesson and am very happy with Claire. She is friendly, accommodating, patient, and explains her lesson in a clear and easy manner (as easy as you can get with the cello). I had a lot of questions and she was very open in answering all of them. Although I am still at the very very beginnings of my journey, I am very excited to continue with the cello lessons, thanks to Claire.
Leslie Mattesich
The first lesson was excellent. I completed my first private cello lesson since playing about 44 years ago. It was wonderful. The teacher is very organized and very nice. I thought maybe the lesson would be a lesson of remembering what I had forgotten from so long ago, but I actually learned new things. I'm excited to attend the next lesson.

Claire works at your pace, but expects you to progress at a steady rate. It's the perfect balance between understanding the student's ability and reasonable expectations for advancement.

Concetta is a wonderful instructor - prior to my lesson I was feeling nervous - not sure what to expect, not feeling worthy, etc. - she quickly put me at ease and we had a very productive 1st lesson - well worth the investment of my time and money

I haven’t ever enjoyed a music lesson as much as I do with Concetta.

Online Cello Teacher

Hello! My name is Emma Cary and I recently completed my sophomore year as a cello performance major at the University of Michigan, where I study with Prof. Richard Aaron. I have been studying the cello for 14 years, and previously taught weekly private cello lessons to kids ages 6-15 for around 3 years during high school. I have plenty of experience teaching beginners, but I am also willing to teach musicians of any level!

I will be available for in-person lessons at the Moore Building on campus since I will be staying in Ann Arbor until mid-June, and I will return in late August. I am also willing to teach online lessons via Skype. I am fully vaccinated, but I still would like to social distance and wear a mask if we decide to meet in person.

I would prefer if you send me an email at ecary@umich.edu to set up a lesson time instead of doing so through this website. TakeLessons charges extra fees, but if we use another payment method, (Zelle, Venmo, etc.) your money won't go to ...

Emma Cary, 19, is a rising junior at the University of Michigan where she studies cello performance with Richard Aaron. She began cello lessons at 6 years old with her father, Neal Cary, and continued lessons with him for 12 years. Other influential teachers include Julian Schwarz, who she studied

Is Cello Hard to Learn? Read THIS Before Taking Lessons

Many beginning musicians wonder, “Is cello hard to learn?” The process of learning the cello is not difficult, but it’s important to keep in mind that the cello is not an instrument of instant gratification. It does require focused, daily practice time and a good teacher to guide you along the way. How far you progress with cello is a direct result of the amount of quality time you put into practicing the instrument. Even someone who puts in just 30 minutes a day will notice a signi …

Is There Such Thing as a Left-Handed Cello? How to Play as a Leftie

Handedness is the sense that one hand is more dexterous or coordinated compared to the other. Researchers usually determine an individual’s handedness by observing which hand is used to write or eat. Although the causes of handedness are not fully understood, about 10% of the population is left handed or ambidextrous according to Dr. M.K. Holder, a researcher and specialist on handedness. Many left handed students wonder if they will need a specialized instrument in order to learn to play …
