I want to help you reach your musical goals on cello whether it be solo, chamber, orchestral or other! I teach through the Suzuki Method along with additional materials for advanced students. It is important to be a well rounded musician, so I will work on technique, musicality and performance with students.

Private Cello Teacher

As a passionate cello player, I want my students to have fun but also really understand their instrument and the music they are playing! Students will learn their scales through the circle of fifths, shifting positions, vibrato techniques, music theory, and performing with an accompanist. They are expected to have fun but to work hard - it’s totally worth it!

About Melissa

I have been playing piano for 23 years and cello for 16 years. I love sharing music with others and seeing them grow to love music as well. I am currently a pianist for the KC Ballet’s ROAD program. I have a Bachelors of Music from Lindenwood University. I have been a piano accompanist for 7 years.

Great first lesson with hands-on playing, not just an orientation. Looking forward to the next lesson!
Jerry M.
I decided to take up cello at age 57 as a new instrument. Melissa did a great job teaching proper technique and method and was really aware of my personal goals for what I wanted to achieve. She has a great gentle and encouraging demeanor. I would highly recommend Melissa.

Melissa was very patient and such a great teacher on my first lesson with her. It went by so fast and I learned so much!

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!

I love teaching strings. Cello was my first instrument. I focus heavily on bow technique. I have gotten students into youth orchestras and passed college auditions. I like to use the Essential Elements and Suzuki books.
I also offer online group lessons at a highly discounted price. I suggest that all my students join. This is a great option for kids while class is out.

Great with kids and first-time learners!

Michelle is great! She is very friendly and patient (especially with my poor internet connection). She takes time to show me the details on how to bow and set up my fingering properly. I highly recommend Michelle. I'm very happy I chose her as my viola teacher.

Online Cello Teacher

Hello! My name is Rochelle L. and I am a Boston University graduate with a degree in Cello Performance. I have been teaching cello for almost 9 years and it is something I truly enjoy doing!

I strive to give my students a solid foundation that they can rely on, regardless of whether or not they wish to pursue a career in music or not. I am fortunate enough to have studied with incredible cellists and musicians and I am eager to share what they have taught me.

About Rochelle

I recently graduated from Boston University with a degree in Cello Performance. I have been studying and playing my entire life, focusing mainly on cello with a background in piano. I started teaching cello when I was a sophomore in high school, and would often be a substitute teacher for my pr

Rochelle helped me get reacquainted with the cello after a 22 year hiatus. She is patient and focuses on tone and technique. Her musical knowledge is apparent as she structures her lessons around skill sets that are in need of fine tuning. Her ability to pick up on these skills sets is what makes her a great teacher.

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

"Nicholas was very professional. I've been playing cello for 13 years and have played in many community symphonies. I've never had a private lesson and just learned what I was taught in grad school. Although I was skeptical on online lessons, Nicholas has already shown me some bad habits i have and how to break them and we're already moving on to some hard stuff. I'm excited to where my next 9 lessons will take me. Perhaps even with more lessons on the way. Thanks Nicholas!"

She is in orchestra at her Middle School so the summer lessons have helped her improve her technique and when I listen to her practice I have noticed improvement in the sound. Scheduling was easy and he is flexible. It has been a great experience thus far."

"I am a now heading off to be a freshman in college after studying with Arlette for over ten years. I began as a shy six year old and can say I am so glad my mother encouraged me to study cello with Arlette. Arlette is both patient and stern in her teaching style. Every criticism was constructive and every praise warm and ernest. She helped me not only in my studies as a solo cellist, but as an orchestral cellist as well. I am so grateful and happy I to have studied with Arlette and encourage all those young (or older) cellists, whether they are beginning or more advanced, to study with Arlette."

Is There Such Thing as a Left-Handed Cello? How to Play as a Leftie

Handedness is the sense that one hand is more dexterous or coordinated compared to the other. Researchers usually determine an individual’s handedness by observing which hand is used to write or eat. Although the causes of handedness are not fully understood, about 10% of the population is left handed or ambidextrous according to Dr. M.K. Holder, a researcher and specialist on handedness. Many left handed students wonder if they will need a specialized instrument in order to learn to play …
