Private Cello Teacher

My name Zoe. I am a classical trained cellist and musician and I love teaching, especially kids who are just starting or have been playing for a while! My goal is to let my students enjoy playing and know how to appreciate classical music even if they ended up not pursuing music as a career. Music comes in different forms, I like having my students chose whatever piece of music that they would like to play on the cello, and I will do my best to help them to achieve their goal. A lot of musicians grew up practicing alone so as a professional string quartet players, I would very much like to have my students to work with each other and enhance their communication skill from day one! I think being able to listen is a skill that can be used in every other field as well, and I firmly believe that playing chamber music will be a great way to increase sensibility of listening.

I have been touring with my colleagues in the past few years and I loved it! But as I am playing and learning so much from my great mentors, I r

Claire makes challenging pieces more helpful by giving fun ways to learn them. She is a great instructor!
Christy
Claire makes sure that she answers any questions that I have. She goes at my pace. She's a great teacher! She is so experienced and patient.
Christy
Taking lessons on line is sometimes challenging; for instance, the instructor is talking but sometimes her words become garbled, like watching television and the picture and sound fades in and out.

I thought the teacher wanted me to just memorize the one section (the tune); she wasn't clear the first time (the first lesson) on memorizing the tune for playing All of the exercises without looking at the music notes. So, yesterday's lesson wasn't as good as I had hoped it would be.

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.

"My 9-year-old son has been taking cello lessons with Jessica for about 4 weeks and it has been a great experience. Jessica is very professional and competent teacher, always being on time, communicating in a very fun and engaging way, and assigning homework very clearly. Andrew very much enjoys the classes and, as a result, he is even more motivated to play the cello. I would highly recommend Jessica."

What is the Suzuki Cello Method?

The Suzuki method, founded in 1945 by violinist Shinichi Suzuki as the Talent Education Movement, is one of the most enduring teaching methods, or pedagogies for young string players. Suzuki’s main goal for his music education system was to give students a “noble spirit,” which would instill respect and cooperation through his method. The method was brought to America in the 1960s by John D. Kendall, and today the Suzuki Association of the Americas instructs new teachers and studen …

What Are the Names of the Cello's Parts? A Closer Look

The string family has a unique history, and a very unique look. Modern instruments have elaborate carvings adorning on the top, inlaid purfling supporting the cello’s rich sound, and beautifully stained wooden bodies. There are also internal posts and sound bars which allow the body to function as an acoustic amplifier across the cello’s wide range.
