Look no further if your on Oahu. Theresa Strange is who you are looking for if you want to take your musicianship to the next level. A keen and thoughtful teacher, every lesson has been money well spent. 11/10 ⭐️
Levi
Theresa is a wonderful teacher. I am a beginning cello student but with 12 years of upright bass experience, and she tailors our lessons to match my classical knowledge and play style with the basics required transitioning to a new instrument. She has an incredible depth of knowledge and communicates it in a way that is easily understood and and applied, regardless of whether it's bow technique, musical phrasing, or historical in nature. It has made learning a new instrument a great joy - thanks, Theresa!

Beginner cello lessons with me are fun and engaging, while you learn the basics of how to play your instrument as an extension of your body. Mindfulness is a key component of my lessons designed to help you learn to play without tension right from the start. You will learn the basics of how to hold the instrument, proper bow hold, finger placement basics, proper wrist position, basic rhythm, as well as, scales, note reading, and music theory. Each lesson is designed developmentally appropriate for the age and physical ability of the student.

About Susan

Music, meditation, and mindfulness have become interchangeable parts of my life that come together in the most beautiful way. Learning to develop the mind impacts the body and how we approach every aspect of our lives. If we approach a skill mindfully whether it is playing an instrument or learning

Experienced teacher of 4 years with a specialization in beginning/intermediate cello students. Lessons will cater to the needs of each individual student with a focus on a strong technical foundation. As a teacher, I concentrate on engaging students in their learning and aspire to inspire students to discover the joys and benefits of learning music. Not only will students learn to play the cello but they will have instruction in note reading, music theory and ear training. I believe that music should be enjoyable for students and strive to make meaningful connections with my students, positively influencing their musical lives.

He is an awesome tutor, and I learn a lot from this lesson. Unlike my previous tutor, he uses his cello to demonstrate things. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to improve at playing the cello.

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 …

What Does it Take to Become a Professional Cello Player?

Pursuing a career in music is a risky decision, because by the nature of the industry few artists can “make it big.” Most artists aren’t pop stars, or even full-time career musicians, and all musicians also teach to remedy this. There are many paths to becoming a professional cello player, and depending on where you start it might be easy or hard to earn a reputation and start making money. I followed an academic path, studying classical music at university and then continuing my research …

Cello Thumb Position: Where to Place Your Fingers & Hands

Cello thumb position is one of the big leaps of technique for advancing cellists and is one of the skills that sets more advanced students from the intermediate. This new technique opens up the higher ranges of the instrument and allows us to play more advanced solos and etudes. This technique is not something you should rush into though! Make sure to take things slowly at first and master the basic concepts before moving on.  When Should You Focus on Your Cello Thumb Position? There have to …
