Anna has been an amazing teacher, I've learned so much from her. She's detailed and precise in her instruction. She has been a great help!
Mel Elizabeth
Anna is amazing! For the past two years, she has provided individual cello instruction to our 10th grader. She is patient, kind, and easily able to share her knowledge and skills with her students. Under her guidance he has improved his technique and gained valuable experience at his recitals. She has also helped him prepare pieces for his auditions at CCA and SDYS. Highly recommend!
Kevin
Anna is a wonderful teacher. She allows me as a parent (and encourages) to attend lessons so i can be her proxy during the week to reinforce lessons taught; this helps with continuous week to week progress. She demands a lot of my child in terms of warm-ups drills, site reading, rhythm, intonation, and sound. She is rigorous in terms of proper technique, training, and demands playing "beautifully" (with emotion). When things get too tough she takes a step back and gets back to the basics, focusing on advancing through a piece note by note, measure by measure. The end result is fantastic and often get featured in concert performances several times a year. My child has grown tremendously since starting with Ms. Anna; he had a previous teacher and picked up a lot of bad habits that we had to engineer out. He now is playing at a high level as a 10 year old having been with Ms. Anna for ~2 years. He has grown through each piece, taking his time. There is no pressure to move onto new pieces until each piece has been mastered. His maturity, self-confidence and work ethic have all grown because of cello. It has been a tremendous pleasure to learn from Ms. Anna, not to mention see her perform in the San Diego symphony. She is a true professional who understands how to work with kids but also pull the best out of them!

I went in hoping to relearn the basics of cello. I have a lot of experience, but my fundamentals, primarily, how I held my bow and cello, were extremely poor. Cello tutors that I've had in the past have struggled with the awkward place that would put my cello skills if you thought of progressing skill as being in a linear fashion, but she's been great. She's did a really good job at tailoring her lessons to my specific skillset and abilities. Would recommend.
Becki DeVries
While Amy was a nice teacher - and this helped my daughter during Covid - as schools were closed - she was absolutely unwilling to cancel a lesson when my daughter was in the ER. I was only able to give a few hours notice because the accident happened that morning. I completely understand cancellation policies, however there's a double standard when the teacher can cancel minutes before with no explanation, but the student who is in the ER can't. This happened literally back to back weeks. I found the whole experience just unkind - and we don't need that energy in our lives. We will find a teacher who has more compassion.
Louisa
She is patient with my daughter, while still ensuring that she is learning new things.

"Mr. Anderson was my teacher from 5th grade to 12th grade. He is a wonderful instructor who cared about my growth and helped cultivate my talent as a cellist! I will always be thankful for his patience and encouragement as my school, family, and extracurricular events moved in my life. He is creative in merging my talents with pieces and camps where I could showcase my talents and be challenged. I am very glad that I had the chance to be one of Mr. Anderson's students, and I still keep in-touch with some of his other students to this day. I think that speaks to how Mr. Anderson creates a culture of caring, talent, and fun. All of which are critical to not only playing cello, but also in life. Highly recommend him as a cello teacher and a life mentor!"

What are the Hardest Cello Pieces? How to Get from Beginner to Advanced Player

As a beginner I often told myself I would know I am a really great cellist when I could play Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee at full speed. To my young ears, this simply had to be one of the hardest cello pieces with its high range, chromaticism, and famously fast tempo. As my musical career continued I worked on these and other skills to reach a point I could begin learning the piece confidently, and it was only a matter of time before I achieved my goal. Of course, this wasn’ …

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 …
