View Full Profile

I've been teaching Cello for 1 year, and I have a trained ear and similar experience of a 2 year cello student. I provide my students with supplemental assistance for their orchestra electives. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play your orchestra music fluently and as time goes on you'll be able to compete for seating auditions. I specialize in Classical music, typically use the Suzuki Method, and have the following tools available for your lessons: music stand and finger tapes. I love working with students of all ages, and I can't wait to meet you!

About Christine
Christine has been teaching private lessons since 2013 and is currently available to teach lessons at her home studio or your home. Christine has helped students achieve confidence in their playing, perform songs with effortless execution, master technical skills, and prepare for recitals.

Christine is great with my children. She helped my high-school student with his orchestra audition (with her coaching, he made it into the highest orchestra at his school). She also helped launch my middle school aged daughter as she started up with viola. Christine is terrific with communication, flexible when possible with scheduling, and is as friendly as a long lost auntie. Her teaching style is gentle and encouraging.

I'm an experienced and dedicated cellist, having played with Orchestras and Chamber groups throughout my state. My lessons are focused on relaxation, and am as laid back or strict as the student needs. Whether you're a beginner or advanced, shooting to be a church player or a pro, I have taught students for that and am the teacher for you.

About Nicholas
Nicholas is a professional cellist that has studied since the age of 9. He has now been teaching the cello, viola, and violin for the past seven years for students of all ages, beginner to pre-college level.

Throughout Nicholas’s career, he has been an active member of Honors Orchestras, Youth Symphonies, Chamber ensembles, Opera Symphonies, and his university’s symphony. His music consists of mostly a classical nature with some contemporary and popular music ensembles.

Nicholas trained for three years in college under the renowned cellist Martha Gerschefski, whose accomplishments are too many to list. He also trained under Christopher Rex, the principal cellist of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Nicholas now holds a Bachelor’s degree in Music Performance at Georgia State University.

Experienced cello teacher of 10 years! My lesson plan is simple : 1. we warm up with basic scales + finger exercises, 2. we focus on tone + proper technique, and 3. we play from a variety of solo, duets, and ensemble pieces (I prepare backing tracks to help w/ rhythm and timing... or play the parts myself). If the student is working on music for school orchestra, we can focus on that as well. You will learn what you want to learn at your own pace.

About Ryan
Experienced cello, drum, piano, and guitar player of 20 years. Has a MFA degree in music composition + a BFA in music performance. Recorded professionally for tv shows such as "Glee," "Entertainment Tonight," and "Extra." Also records for "Sonoton Recordings." Currently resides in Los Angeles, California.

I could not ask for more in a teacher. Ryan is amazing in every way. He has been teaching my 4 year old son the drums for nearly a year. When my son started lessons, he was actually below the minimum age for students, but he shared a passion for music that Ryan was willing to cultivate and be patient with.

Ryan is versatile in his teaching methods, creative, open, patient. Teaching a young student, Ryan adjusted to teaching music reading fundamentals with colors and shapes. He also figured out ways to correct, critique and build all the while building a young child's confidence.

Ryan provides a written evaluation of our son annually and has him prepare for two public recitals a year. Ryan integrates modern technology into the lessons to quickly provide feedback and create customized beats and tempos to practice to.

Above all, Ryan smiles and laughs. He makes every lesson pleasant and we treasure him, truly.

About Nivek A.

Close
Atlanta, GA
View Full Profile

Like my Nivek (pronounced Nuh-veek), it rhymes with unique. The cello is a wonderful instrument that I enjoy playing and teaching others to play. If you are young, “tween”, teen, grown, starting something new, checking off this on your bucket list or young at heart, I’m the knowledgeable and patient teacher for you. I believe that good musicianship is important at every learning stage - beginning, intermediate, and advanced.

Background
-Cellist now for 18 years
-Master of Music in Music Education
-Orchestra teacher for 7 years now
-active performing musician with local artists and churches and for events

Lessons are...
-customized for you and your learning style
-focus on correct technique, music reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading

Tell me your musical goals, and I’ll give you the tools to reach them! I look forward to working with you.

About Nivek
I am a certified music educator in the state of Georgia and a professional cellist. This is my 7th year as an orchestra teacher, and I have a heart for sharing my musical knowledge with others. This year marks my 18th year as a cellist. Prior to that, I played string bass for 3 years. This year, I graduated from Anderson University in Anderson, South Carolina with a Master of Music in Music Education.

I have taught all levels and stages of students. From the young to the young at heart, from the budding beginner to the advanced student. My goal is for students to become knowledgeable and independent musicians with good musicianship. We focus on correct technique, ear training, correct posture and position, note reading, music theory, and sight reading. You will receive professional, personable, and quality teaching for your g
oals. As a student, you may want to acquire the skills to play professionally or you may want to learn how to play for your enjoyment. I can help you reach your goals at a healthy pace...as long as you engage in consistent and correct practice. My lessons are planned with each individual student in mind. You are unique and so is your learning style. I adjust to your learning needs and styles while providing you with the knowledge you need to progress on the cello.

I’m an active performing cellist as well as a public school music educator. Prior to teaching in the classroom, I taught private lessons for two years.

I had the absolute pleasure of working as Nivek's music administrator for years. Her work ethic, breadth of knowledge, and passion for music education made each lesson rewarding and productive for her students. She understands how to teach...not always a given in such accomplished performer. Without hesitation I give Nivek 5 stars.

I’m have over 30 years of experience teaching cello. Every student has different needs; I work with you at whatever point you are at. I have a doctorate in cello.

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 help you find music you can play at your level and will love playing.

Many of my students find they really enjoy taking lessons with me because I speak their language—I understand their love of different types of music, I hear their frustrations and can help them solve their problems, and I’m happy to spend a few minutes in a lesson “nerding out” about whatever exciting cello-thing came across their radar this week.

I have a reputation for students with solid technique who have learned how to solve problems and play in tune, in rhythm, with
good sound and musical understanding. Let me help you do so!

Education:
DMA in cello performance from the University of South Carolina
MM in cello performance and pedagogy from Northern Illinois University
BA in music history, also from NIU

I’ve taught cello at Clemson University, North Greenville University, Anderson University, and the University of South Carolina, as well as in my private studio.

(FYI: Until recently, I was a licensed foster parent. I promise my background has been checked in every way possible!)

First lesson went great. Brenda started me with the basics and was very patient. Answered all my questions. I feel that I will be off to a good start with Brenda guiding me. PS I’m 53 years old, brand new to cello. I’ve always dreamed of playing.
I used to play French Horn 40 years ago. Bass clef is all new to me.

I originally learned how to play the cello on my own in my school's orchestra. When I went to college and decided to bring my cello with me, I knew it was time to take proper lessons like everyone else. Brenda was able to help me iron out all of the bad habits I had developed over seven years of playing cello with no formal corrections. She clearly cared about me and my interests as a student. I can confidently say Brenda equipped me with the tools, techniques, and attitude I needed to play the cello for the rest of my life.

Dr. Leonard has been my daughter's cello teacher for six years. She has been amazing in every way. My daughter has enjoyed playing the cello, in large, part due to Dr. Leonard's teaching style which is intellectually stimulating, humorous, inspiring, and caring. She is a relatable to my teenager. We have never thought of moving to a new teacher because Dr. Leonard always brings something new to the table in her lessons.

Glenview, IL

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.

About Wei
Even though I have been teaching and performing on the cello for most of my life, it's not all there is to who I am. I am a chef (almost--12 weeks to go), a mom, a wife. I have a cute little Tibetan Terrier that loves visitors. My husband and I love hiking in beautiful places.

Studying with me will be fun but it will also be challenging. I believe that being able to make music with your own two hands is worth the effort.

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.
