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.

This year is my 9-year old granddaughter's first step in learning how to play a musical instrument and she chose the violin. We knew that music lessons would be essential to her learning to appreciate her violin. I searched the internet and reviewed several teaching sites before I discovered Elisa's site. After reading about Elisa's experience along with few reviews, I decided to sign Lia up. I found Elisa to be very caring, personable, skilled and professional. My granddaughter is very excited and very happy that she has Elisa for her violin teacher. I highly recommend Elisa!

Bailey was an excellent lesson instructor! She took the time to make sure I was getting exactly what I wanted out of my violin lessons and tailored her approach to meet my background and ability level. She is extremely knowledgeable about all of the instruments she teaches, and her positive energy is contagious! I learned so much from Bailey and always enjoyed our lessons together.

Bailey gives great feedback and helped my son learn new songs quickly. Thanks!
Patrick
Bailey is an amazing teacher! I am primarily a low brass player, but had wanted to get better at piano. Bailey was able to analyze my musical needs, and developed a plan for my specific goals. She is great at focusing on specific problems and giving you advice for fixing them. At the same time, she is patient, and would be great with children, as well as adults. I would highly recommend getting lessons from Bailey!

Online Cello Teacher

I’m passionate about music education and I am a full time music teacher and active performer throughout the SE Michigan area. In the summers I teach cello and music improvisation at the Cellochanwoods Cello retreat in Vermont.

Lessons are designed and catered around each student and I believe in a well rounded approach in teaching music. While everyone will learn a solid foundation of note reading and playing technique, lessons also pull from sources such as music theory, ear training, music history, etc.

I hold a Masters in Music Performance from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, London and a Bachelors in Music Performance from the University of Michigan.

Whether you’re looking to learn a new hobby, or further your musical skills, I’d love to help out. All levels welcome!

As part of the Stringwood Chamber Music Festival Assistant Faculty, Lucas has experience teaching a wide age and experience range of cellists and chamber groups, from early middle school to collegiate level. Lucas is able to thoroughly address complex musical and technical issues in a nurturing, understanding environment. It has been a privilege to witness Lucas' passion for music engage and excite the students to dive deeper into the repertoire and ignite their motivation to challenge themselves to the next level of musicianship. I highly recommend Lucas as your next cello and chamber music teacher."

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 …
