My style of teaching is to teach each child one step at a time, through method training. Each child/Adult has their own learning curve and I adjust accordingly. Each lesson is fun and yet a learning time. I love teaching and it feeds every day. I always can see more students.

No words can express how good she is at teaching cello
Layla
As an adult learner, I was intimidated by the prospect of learning the cello because it’s such a demanding instrument, but Arlette has put these apprehensions at ease. She is wonderfully experienced which gives the student a very solid foundation; essential to playing the cello well. Highly recommend her as an instructor for any aspiring cellist.
Joshua
I started playing cello at 26 years old with absolutely zero musical experience of any kind. After 6 months of attempting to teach myself the cello, I decided I needed help and begun my journey to find myself a cello instructor. I was so fortunate to find Arlette! Arlette was abundantly patient with me, from my habit of asking too many questions to my very unpredictable availability. Before Arlette started teaching me music theory and how to play the cello, I never appreciated the value of having an instructor. After having taken lessons from her for nearly a year, I would simply say having a fine instructor like Arlette is a necessity. The first time I played a duet was with Arlette, and it was a moment in my life I am so thankful for and I will never forget! She is kind and consistent, very professional but also very personable which is a very hard thing to balance. She pushed me to excel without making me feel overwhelmed. I could go on forever about how great a cello instructor Arlette is so I will finish with this... If you are looking for a cello teacher look no further.

Hi! Depending on what the student enjoys, we will focus on learning songs from a musical genre (classical, pop, jazz etc). We will also learn music theory, note reading, improvisation, fingering, bow technique and much more. It is very important to me that my students are enjoying what they are learning, so they will be inspired to practice and persevere!

As a graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music and over 40 years of solo, chamber music and orchestral experience I will teach you that playing the cello is a total mind/body experience that forces you to be here now and teach you the value of everyday practice as a cellist and musician.
From beginner to advanced players I will cover proper setup and make you understand in depth the mechanics of tone production (that golden tone every cellists dreams of) as well as learning to explore and understand the potential for sound colors and expression in music in general.
I have had a long and fascinating journey in music and I hope you will join me for more!

Great first lesson. Learned new methods to improve bowing. Looking forward to the next lesson
Paul D.
I am coming to the cello as a brand new beginner. I have play around with some fretted instruments, ukulele, banjo, etc. But Irina was super at getting me relaxed, focused on basics and encouraging me with small, but important mechanics and technical details. I have taken other music lessons like sax, so could compare. I totally enjoyed the start of my cello training.
Oh, btw, I'm retired and over 65!!!

I live for helping others find their fullest musical potential. Daughter to a teach and a truck driver, my parents couldn't afford lessons when I was in school. I want to stress that I want those students who are being denied affordable private lessons. You are just as capable of greatness as kids paying out the nose for lessons.

I strongly believe EVERYONE is capable of learning an instrument. We all learn in different ways. Perhaps you tried learning once before and it didn't work out? Don't let that discourage you! You just need the right teaching method.

Cello has been my passion since I started playing in 1994 in NJ. My love for teaching bloomed when my high school music department gave me two hours to teach middle school beginning strings (Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass) every school day, and I have been hooked since! All South Jersey Orchestra several years, and attended West Chester University of PA on scholarship, where I basked in one of the best music education programs in ...

About Bonnie

I want YOU to discover the music that's always been inside of you. That nagging voice in the back of your head telling you that you don't have a musical bone in your body is WRONG. Everyone is capable of learning an instrument. It's just a matter of finding the right fit in instrument and teacher.

"I'm very glad I found Ryan. I was a bit hesitant to take cello lessons because I'm a male in my mid 20s, I've never played, and I was intimidated by the whole idea. Ryan makes it fun and stress-free, he's very patient, and most importantly - he cares! I know he cares about my progress because he proactively met with me on a non-lesson day so that I could tape up my cello and repair the broken string in order to have enough time to practice. I'm very comfortable with Ryan as my instructor and I look forward to my continued progress through his excellent guidance."

"I have been a student of music for many years with piano and violin. This year it was time for a change. Taking on cello with Victor has been the best experience. He is kind, patient and provides a wonderful learning environment. Although my lessons are done online it seems no different then if he were standing in my living room! I would encourage anyone to take cello lessons from Victor as he teaches a unique way with every student. By the end of your first lesson you will love what you learn and practice to get better. It has been super fun and I look forward to learning more!"

"I originally learned how to play the cello on my own in my school's orchestra. When I went to college and decided to bring my cello with me, I knew it was time to take proper lessons like everyone else. Brenda was able to help me iron out all of the bad habits I had developed over seven years of playing cello with no formal corrections. She clearly cared about me and my interests as a student. I can confidently say Brenda equipped me with the tools, techniques, and attitude I needed to play the cello for the rest of my life."

"I'm very impressed by how Mr. Oshagan can get an almost 3 year old to learn a technique simply by playing a game. He truly understands that children learn best by play. He is able to successfully break down a concept, by playing a game that results in the technique he's teaching, getting my child to focus and engage. My now 3 year old loves and respects Mr. Oshagan, and is very excited when it comes time for his cello lesson. Mr. Oshagan is also a wealth of information. He teaches the parent how to teach the student, so that practice times are as stress free as possible, but effective and productive.
I was specifically looking for a teacher that specialized in teaching cello to small children, and I am so happy we found Mr. Oshagan."

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 …
