Peter has not only honed my daughter's previous skills, but introduced techniques and music theory that was completely new to her. Peter has sought out music that will challenge and interest my daughter specifically. We've been very pleased.
Brian
Peter is an extremely patient and knowledgeable teacher; it has been a privilege studying the piano and cello with him for the past 2 months. In that brief time, I have completed 16 of the 17 pieces in the first Suzuki book for cello! I have also enjoyed the piano exercises and repertoire he has assigned, which are technical but melodious. He has a great understanding of theory and technique; he is very personable and encouraging; and he was flexible and accommodating about the times and modes (in person and online) for my lessons. I recommend him wholeheartedly to other adult beginners like me and am grateful to be under his tutelage.

Peter is exceptional. His instruction is simple, straightforward and progressive

I came to the lesson not knowing what is going to happen and a bit apprehensive. Katie made me feel very comfortable. I was able to learn how to use my breathing better in the short 30 minutes we met. I am looking forward to more lessons.

I started playing in orchestra when I was 9, I have been teaching orchestra in the public school system since 2016, and I have been teaching private lessons for over 8 years now! I am primarily a viola player, but it has been so much fun for me to get more experience teaching cello since I became a teacher! I have always said that cello is the instrument that all orchestra students secretly wished they played. I love string instruments so much, and I love getting to share the experience of making music with string instruments with others.

I am an Arizona native, and I was 9 years old when I started playing the viola in my school's orchestra and singing in my school's choir.

My 10-year-old cellist LOVED learning from Adam Peterson. He really cares about his students as a whole person, and he is patient, kind, and encouraging. I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn a new instrument!
Ali
Adam is a phenomenal teacher! I have had the pleasure of working with Adam as co-teachers while we were undergraduates in the ASU music education program and then again as orchestra teachers with Mesa Public Schools. His violin students play exceptionally well and he consistently has violin students pass auditions into the district's honors orchestra. A+ teacher!
Lisa
Adam is an amazing and gifted teacher! He truly loves music and inspires the same in his students through exploration of a variety of musical pieces, positive reinforcement, and praise. He has taught my daughter for a number of years, and his dedication and patience set him apart from any other instructor she has had.

"Honestly could not ask for a better teacher. I was struggling to find a teacher in the area and boy did I pretty much hit the jackpot. Great teacher, super intelligent and understanding. I am a beginner but would highly recommend him to anyone. Not only does Byron play beautifully but he knows exactly what and how to teach you. Im always excited for my next lesson, so you should contact him and set one up too!"

"Jessica gives really good lessons! Over the past year, I've improved a LOT with intonation, shifting, and posture, which I most certainly wouldn't have done without her help. She's really patient and makes lessons enjoyable with her chill, fun personality, yet makes sure you don't slack off. Although I haven't had any other cello teachers to compare her to, she definitely has raised my standards for any I might have in the future."

"We just had our first cello lesson with Jessica and it was wonderful! She was very patient with me getting the tech set up for the first time online, and then was very attentive to my daughter. She helped in so many detailed ways, and details make all the difference. Hand grip, finger placement, bow hold, many things, all to make a better sound. Even after 45 minutes of a lesson, my daughter had fun and wanted to continue playing after she got offline. Yay! Success! Thanks Jessica!"

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’ …
