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.

I can't say enough good things about Mr. Blackwell. He is an incredible teacher that gives you what you need at your level. If you are looking for a knowledgeable and patient instructor, Mr. Blackwell is for you! Going on 3 years and I am looking forward to the next 3 years.

Thank you!

Luther is an excellent and patient teacher. I’ve been playing guitar for nearly a decade, but have been self-taught and always neglected working on the fundamentals. With extra time on my hands during the COVID-19 pandemic, I decided to try online guitar lessons. Luther took me back to square one and has made sure I get everything perfect before moving on. It’s making me a much more consistent and disciplined guitarist, and I’m learning to read music for the first time. I wasn’t sure how useful remote guitar lessons would be before I started, but was pleased to discover that Luther makes it an excellent way to learn.

I'm a cellist and educator who has taught students of all ages and abilities. I strive to enable my students to find their own style and voice on the instrument. During the past six years my students have applied their skills in orchestras, recitals, and bands. My lesson plans include technical development, various repertoire including Suzuki, and exploration of personal musical interests and songwriting. Cello is my passion and I want to share that with you!

One of my favorite things about people is how we all learn differently. I aim to cater my teaching to each student to best prepare them as musicians, performers, or just music lovers! I adhere to the "canon" of cello playing, but spice it up to appeal to each student and keep you in love with your instrument.

Kate is a fantastic cello teacher - you can tell that she has extensive teaching experience. She is patient and supportive and really helps with the fundamentals of learning cello in a relaxed environment. I've been taking music lessons since I was a little kid (now I'm a mom of two boys who are learning to play piano -- I'm a beginning cello learner) and I can say w/o reservation that Kate is a great teacher and I'm going to learn a lot!!

Katie has been the best online teacher! I started out very new, and having played only the clarinet years ago. Katie is very patient, and she keeps learning interesting and fun. She is also very flexible, I have a busy schedule and she is always super understanding! I look forward to our lessons every time!

First and foremost, it is so important for me to get to know you and your musical interests (favorite songs, artists or bands). Once I know a little bit more about you and where your musical interests are, I help you build goals based on what you’d like to accomplish...that could be anything from “just wanting to learn something new and to have fun” to “playing my sister’s favorite song at her wedding in 3 months” or “to join an orchestra and make it my professional goal”. My style of teaching over the last 25 years incorporates technique, reading music, ear training, and improvisation. In addition to the violin, I teach viola, cello and piano/keyboard. The genres I love to teach are classical, rock, pop, jazz, film/tv music, and fiddle!

Nancy was excellent. She was no nonsense and to the point in her lessons. We never wasted time and I always left with a little more knowledge under my belt. I’ve moved out of LA and have hired other instructors but none as succinct as Nancy. I definitely got my money’s worth with Nancy. I would return to her for lessons if I returned to LA.
Tamsin
Nancy is a wonderful teacher, my teenage son began with her at the awkward age of 14, new to the violin and a requirement of his new school.
She not only got him playing, but instilled a love of music and of composition. Nancy was also incredibly supportive and encouraging as my son transitioned and has a special place in our hearts

New to LA , I found Leggy Fish Music on my second search for cello teacher. I’m so glad I did. Nancy is great teacher , working with me as some one late to music on basics as well as creative methods.
She creates new and different classes - group , and mash up with different musicians and instruments.
She seems to get the best from all her students.

"I took cello lessons from Mr. Anderson for eight years, and he was an absolutely fantastic instructor. I began playing cello because I watched him teach my brother and thought as a ten-year-old that it would be fun to take lessons with Mr. Anderson. He is a great communicator, super personable, provides suggestions and critique in a constructive manner, and is encouraging and supportive. He taught me all of the basics of cello playing and beyond, helping me work through all sorts of pieces, including etudes, solo pieces, all-region and all-state audition material, youth orchestra material (e.g., GDYO), etc. (and helped me succeed in all of these aspects). Would highly recommend taking lessons with Mr. Anderson—he is an absolute pleasure to learn from!"

"As a 40 year old beginner I was a little nervous about the whole online experience as well as starting a new instrument. Victor makes the online teaching experience seamless. Victor is calm, thoughtful and patient. He always finds a way to explain something in a way that relates to me specifically. To do this someone must be able to listen as well as teach. This is quality I have not found in all of my teachers/instructors/coaches throught the years. Victor is also easily the most flexible of any teacher I have had. He always finds a way to accommodate my schedule and works around any issues that arise. I have really enjoyed my learning experience thus far and look forward to each lesson. I would not hesitate to recommend Victor to anyone looking to learn the cello."

"Finding an individual with the credentials or capacity to develop your technique isn't really the difficult part in searching for a teacher. As a twenty-something in the early stages of developing my career, I place a much higher value in being inspired.

Despite having no prior experience with the cello and having little time to practice in between lessons, Ryan does a great job in simplifying the musical concepts and subtly drilling in the key points-- so much so that I can actually hear the improvement with every session. Not only is he very patient and attentive, Ryan also shows an obvious enthusiasm towards his craft that is highly infectious.

The lessons themselves are thorough, but still engaging. Given my hectic lifestyle, I was initially uncertain about committing to a new skill and figured my interest in the cello would waver. I'm still no cello aficionado--however, this first set of lessons has surprisingly heightened that initial interest and convinced me to keep at it.

Bottom Line: If you're looking for a teacher or considering the instrument, I would definitely recommend giving Ryan a shot!"

"Nader has taught cello to my 10 year old son, Caleb for the last 2 years. During in this time, Caleb has made amazing progress. Nader challenges Caleb in a way that builds excitement for music and confidence to excel at his instrument. I can imagine that music lessons and practice can become a chore, but Nader's patience, positive attitude, enthusiasm, and method of teaching keeps Caleb engaged and excited to play the cello. Caleb has truly benefited from the way that Nader engages him each and every time they meet. Nader is a very good listener so that Caleb always feels heard. His questions and concerns are addressed. I give Nader my highest recommendation not only because Caleb has made such good progress, but also because Nader has made the cello very rewarding and enjoyable for Caleb."

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 …
