Private Cello Teacher

I am currently a Doctoral candidate at The Juilliard School. I have been teaching students range from 7 years-old to people who are in their 70s. Helping students from different back ground, age group, and levels of playing has been very rewarding. I help my students preparing for their recitals, competitions, all state exams, or simply learning a new piece of music. I believe in tailoring teaching to each student's needs. Looking forward to working on and exploring cello playing with you!

Ms. Xu is an excellent teacher- very patient, kind, and experienced. I have had cello lessons before but I was in need of an "upgrade". She really helped my technique, sound, and musicianship overall. I highly recommend her without a hesitation!
Aden B.
My son is thrilled with YiQun's expertise, musicality, and useful tips and exercises. He was missing his orchestra and in person lessons, but with YiQun's online lessons, he is feeling is motivated to practice again!

Mr. Greer did a fantastic job teaching my daughter Clarinet. He is very professional and she got a perfect score on all of her NYSSMA solos that she worked on with him. I highly recommend Mr. Greer for private lessons.
Stu
Worked with my daughter and she really enjoyed the lesson. She asked me if she could continue to take lessons with Christopher. He seemed to be able to easily have her gain confidence.

He is an amazing teacher. He helped me tremendously with my embouchure issues and my sound. His friendly style and energy really motivated me to practice more. Can't wait to get back to school and audition for first chair in band.

Private Cello Teacher

Having 10 years of experienced cello teaching, I feel very comfortable helping my students understand the foundations of cello technique. I graduated with a Bachelors of Music from the music conservatory Cleveland Institute of Music, and got my Masters in Music from Northwestern University's Bienen School of Music.

In addition, I completed a 2 year rigorous Suzuki Technique Pedagogy Program where I am now certified to teach all 10 levels of the cello books. I am confident in explaining any questions a student may have. I love to make practicing a game, so that way we are developing the proper skills but also challenging ourselves while having fun! Even I can understand that practicing can get tiresome and dull at times!

As a traveling musician who has performed all over the world, I feel it is important for students to appreciate all types of music. While classical training and technique are absolutely crucial to the beginning stages of a student's development, I like to show ...

Private Cello Teacher

As a teacher, I enjoy cultivating joy and curiosity through cello and believe in creating a warm, open environment for students to develop into inquisitive lifelong learners! While I work with students individually to come up with their own goals, some of the core objectives I have for my students is to develop solid technique and tone quality as well as expression and satisfaction through creating music. I use a variety of tools for learning from standard technique books and classical repertoire to fiddle tunes and rote learning. I believe every child and adult is musical and am excited to explore the cello with you!

About Grace

I've worked in various settings with students of all ages, from beginning elementary school cellists to high school students preparing for college auditions to adults seeking to learn a new instrument.

"We had a kiddo change from upright bass to cello mid-year and couldn't find a local teacher so to fill the gap decided to try online, unsure of what to expect. We have been pleasantly surprised. Naomi is an excellent teacher and as a parent, I feel the communication is also great.

What Does it Take to Become a Professional Cello Player?

Pursuing a career in music is a risky decision, because by the nature of the industry few artists can “make it big.” Most artists aren’t pop stars, or even full-time career musicians, and all musicians also teach to remedy this. There are many paths to becoming a professional cello player, and depending on where you start it might be easy or hard to earn a reputation and start making money. I followed an academic path, studying classical music at university and then continuing my research …

What are the Hardest Cello Pieces? How to Get from Beginner to Advanced Player

As a beginner I often told myself I would know I am a really great cellist when I could play Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee at full speed. To my young ears, this simply had to be one of the hardest cello pieces with its high range, chromaticism, and famously fast tempo. As my musical career continued I worked on these and other skills to reach a point I could begin learning the piece confidently, and it was only a matter of time before I achieved my goal. Of course, this wasn’ …

What is a Yamaha Cello? A Detailed Look for Cello Students

Who made your cello? Who carved the body, stained, varnished, and assembled the instrument, including the label visible through the f-hole which bears their signature? Many musicians consider the maker of their instrument, or luthier, a point of pride. There are famous luthiers, like Stradivari and Guarneri, whose names are synonymous with masterpieces of craftsmanship. These masters innovated many of the standards for modern stringed instruments, and so many luthiers might include on the la …
