Private Cello Teacher

I've taught beginning through advanced cello lessons to my students in elementary, middle and high school in orchestra classes as well as privately. My cello students have received numerous scholarships to various colleges, universities and conservatories and music camps. Cello is a wonderfully robust and special instrument that has such a broad range that it needs to encompass 3 different clefs. The cello can produce beautiful tenor or bass like sounds as well as higher pitched melodies that almost sound like one is playing the violin or viola! I love teaching the cello and have taught students at all levels and ages. I've taken private cello lessons in the past with really great cello teachers and performers, so I have learned so many different teaching techniques and approaches to the cello that help to make each student's progress more rapid, consistent and comfortable.

About Ralph

I've spent most of my adult life teaching string instruments at all levels in the Northern Virginia public schools both as an orchestra director and as a private teacher. I have a music contracting business called Symphony To Go. If you would like to see my teaching studio, please consider visiting

My son had his first lesson with Chialing today, and he learned a lot from her. She was very detailed in teaching and was very precise when correcting mistakes. She went through what my son needed to work on quickly yet completely. He looks forward to his next lesson with her.

"I've been working with Nazar since 1998. Not only does he know his stuff and makes his teaching personal to your needs, but he also has a way to make you feel successful even when you are struggling. you always feel better about your playing when you leave than when you got to his studio. He recognizes your learning style and what you want to accomplish, then builds his teaching around that.

If you are looking for a cello teacher (and yes, he also teaches piano and other instruments) I'd say put your time and money into Nazar and you, you will feel it is one of your best investments"

"Caitlin is a committed teacher and life-long learner. Having experienced Caitlin's passion for music through her riveting performances and devoted teaching, I cannot recommend her more. She is a sensitive, communicative and passionate teacher and musician, and one of the best teachers you will find.

From first hand experience of observing her teaching, she masterfully matches the energy of her students. She is able to effectively direct and keep their focus, while fueling their enthusiasm through encouragement. She takes the time to tailor each lesson for each individual, helping them (for example) notate the melody of the Star Wars theme. She's a trained and experience pedagogue, and has attended Suzuki and other teacher trainings.

Caitlin's dedication to her own musical learning is impressive-- she attends and teaches workshops for percussion often, and is actively involved in the SLC music and arts community."

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 …
