Together we will learn the beginning essentials to playing the cello and reading cello music. I focus on good technique from the beginning so a student should expect to spend a good amount of time in lessons on technique exercises and posture checks. We will also learn music based on the student's experience.

I am a classically trained violist and string instrument enthusiast, born and raised in the Chicagoland area. I attended and graduated from Western Michigan University with a BM in music performance and have since worked as a music teacher in San Diego. I am the strings director at Double Peak Scho

I teach through a traditional style where learning notation is paramount. Proper technique and finger placement will propel us into playing classical pieces and studies.

Hi, I'm Rachel. I just graduated from the Eastman School of Music at the University of Rochester this May, with my Bachelor's degree in Cello Performance. This summer I relocated to the Philadelphia area, which is where I am originally from. I have been playing cello since I was five years old & I have experience with the Suzuki method as well as other approaches. I teach music theory and give private cello lessons to students of all ages and levels. While my background is in classical music, my goal is to help my students master any piece of music they are excited about. I am so excited to share my love for the cello with any and all potential students.

I have been teaching cello to students of all ages for over six years. I aim to tailor my teaching plans to each student’s unique goals and learning habits. I structure my lessons so that students learn and play what they enjoy, while also building a strong foundation of fundamental cello technique.

I have over 30 years of experience teaching cello. Every student has different needs; I work with you at whatever point you are at; beginners through advanced students welcome. I have a doctorate in cello. I've played cello all my life; in recent years I have learned (and can teach) 5-string cello, as well.

I recommend lessons 30 minutes in duration for beginners, particularly children. (Adult beginners can choose 30 or 45 minutes.) Students who can play longer pieces definitely need a little longer lesson so we get through everything.

I use Suzuki books for their inexpensive repertoire but I do not teach using the Suzuki method nor do I teach rote playing. I supplement these books with technique materials from Rick Mooney (Position Pieces, Thumb Position) and studies by cellist-composers of the past. If you have an interest in another area of playing, let's talk and find pieces that interest you.

About Brenda

I love teaching cello! I’ve spent 30+ years of my life doing it and I think I’m good at what I do. :) One of the best parts of teaching is connecting you with your dreams. I’m open to teaching music you’ll enjoy playing and I love talking about cello and my love of classical music. I’m happy to hel

Brenda is a great cello teacher; she is a patient instructor, superior in music theory, and actual playing. I feel at ease at our lessons and look forward to them weekly.
Naomi S.
I'm on my 3rd lesson and already feel like I've learned a lot! She's very helpful and even though it's an online class, Brenda's really observant so she can catch things right away and correct them. She's also the nicest person with a good sense of humor. I'd definitely recommend her!
Karen P.
Very patient and encouraging. Good use of imagery to help me achieve and remember correct positions.

Online Cello Teacher

I am a string specialist. That means I teach and play violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar, bass guitar, mandolin, ukulele and piano. I earned B.A. earned from the University of Northern Colorado, Greeley Colorado where I was a double major in classical guitar and double bass. In my senior year I was the recipient of the Annual Concerto Contest where I performed the "Concerto in A Major" on double bass with the University orchestra for the spring concert. I have played in both professional and semi-professional orchestras in Colorado and Arizona. I believe that any student will practice more if he or she likes the music they are playing. Periodically I will ask a student to give me a name of a piece of music that they would like to learn how to play. I notate it for them, often simplifying the rhythm and chords in Finale NotePad and give it to them free of charge. I teach students how to play music on their given instrument. Not just how to play the instrument but working on ...

"Jessica is by far the best Cello teacher I’ve ever taken lessons from. When I first began with my lessons I was admittedly terrible in many aspects, and couldn’t even hold a bow correctly. However, over just a few years I improved drastically. I now have managed to earn a place in the higher level of my school orchestra, a feat I never could’ve accomplished before I started taking lessons.
I cannot properly express just how much of a help Jessica is to those who want to learn cello and would recommend her any day."

"Fabulous cello teacher!!! We are so pleased that our daughter is taking lessons from Arlette. When our daughter wanted to learn cello (2 years ago), Arlette came highly recommended. We were not disappointed! Arlette teaches all aspects of playing the cello, including music theory, and developing musically. She's passionate, caring, patient every step of the way, inspirational, and makes it so much fun!--consequently, my girl recently auditioned and was accepted to play in a high school orchestra (she's a middle school student). She loves playing cello!"
