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

We’ve been lucky to have Mary Alice work with our 13 year old daughter for the past 6 months. Mary Alice chooses songs that my daughter loves and is eager to master. Subjects that can be dry become alive and engaging when taught in this context. Mary Alice has an amazing rapport with kids of all ages. Mary Alice makes musical education so fun that my daughter puts a lot of work into her lessons because she wants to, not because I make her. We couldn’t dream of a better teacher.
Sammy
I’ve been taking Mary Alice’s classes for a couple of months now and my singing has improved a lot including intonation, rhythm, and tone. Mary Alice is very patient and caring, she is the best music teacher I have ever worked with. All the homework is fun and takes my interests into account. When Mary Alice found out I play ukulele, she incorporated it into our lessons so that I could accompany my singing. Even though the classes are remote, Mary Alice finds a way to make them interesting and productive.

Online Cello Teacher

Good habits and an excellent attitude make great cellists. It doesn't hurt to love music too. I love music and I love to share my passion with my students.

Having a teacher who is an experienced performer is an important quality in a teacher. I am a professional classical musician currently working as a freelance cellist in the Chicago area. I play with Chicago Philharmonic, the Northbrook Symphony, the Lyric Opera of Chicago, and the Northwest Indiana Symphony, among others. Before coming to Chicago I played for 13 seasons with the Alabama Symphony Orchestra.

I have taught privately for over 10 years including 2 years in Paris. My teaching is a reflection of my teacher, Phillippe Muller. I studied with Msr. Muller while studying at the Paris Conservatory. Msr. Muller is currently a Professor of Cello at the Manhattan School of Music in New York City.

Profile_63163_pi_don
"As an adult beginner, I found Don's approach of focusing on the fundamentals key to producing a strong sound and forming good habits when practicing cello. I played violin for six years growing up but in that time never received such great instruction on technique of playing a stringed instrument as I did in a few months of cello lessons with Don. He is a very knowledgeable cellist and quickly recognizes adjustments in technique required for improvement. Additionally, he organizes recitals for his students, giving us a nice opportunity to perform. His knowledge, patience, and gentle manner make him a great instructor."
