My goals for my cello and piano students include the development of effective technique and musicality, as well as focusing on the profound beauty that humans can create and celebrate. Growth, both musical and personal, happens within a positive learning environment and with constructive feedback, in small moments and in large, and with successes and failures. Effective music education happens in an environment of mutual respect and connection. While it goes without saying that learning an instrument should be enjoyable, it is also hard work that is immensely rewarding. To learn anything is to be vulnerable and open to criticism, feedback, and new ideas. This can only happen in a space where feedback is honest, kind, and engaged. Physically healthy playing technique is imperative to the improvement of one’s playing, as well as continuing to play for a long time without damage to the body. It is my mission to help my students develop and maintain healthy habits so they avoid long-term ...

As an educator, my philosophy is to teach my students how to become the best versions of themselves by creating a safe, healthy learning environment. My mission is to cultivate musicians to be the best they can be by receiving a well-rounded music education, developing mastery, and becoming life-long music appreciators. My goal as an educator is to inspire and encourage students to test their limits and strive for musical, personal, and professional growth.

Benefits of being in my cello studio:

Flexible schedule: Unlike other cello teachers, I have a lot of availability throughout the day and week. As long as you reschedule within 24 hours, and I can guarantee you have a lesson during that week!

Access to resources for free: Students in my studio will receive special access to my cello studio google drive folder on my website. You will find helpful resources such as music, video tutorials, recordings, and so much more that are only available for students in my studio.

Ashley is knowledgeable, personable and patient. I highly recommend her.
Jasmine
They way she teaches the lessons makes it educational and yet fun at the same time. She's easy to get a long with and communicates well. Loved that she complimented me when I was doing something right. She made me feel very comfortable. Overall she was a great teacher.
Sarah
We met Ashley when she was a junior in college through the Univ. of Texas String Project. Over the two years with her in this program, Ashley has been most dedicated and caring, and her passion for teaching showed when she went above and beyond to address my questions. She is also organized, reliable, and resourceful. During the program breaks and then post graduation, we continued with private lessons because Ashley made lessons fun so my little cellist loves hanging out with Ashley that much! Transitioning to online lessons was a trial for everyone, but Ashley managed to make that work and her dedication did not falter. We are so thankful for her and highly recommend her to anyone looking to learn/improve in cello.

We adore, Miss Amy! She is incredibly competent and even more incredibly loving! She teaches with nothing but positive energy. It's easier to find errors and note them. I can't even attempt to work at finding all the good in some of our lesson time that Amy can find! She finds those tiny "correct" and "right" things and that leaves our two sons energized and feeling confident about what they are able to accomplish - even when the difficulty of the song has discouraged them. Amy always finds a way of putting in a section that makes them shine.

This is our fourth year with online lessons from Miss Amy. I mention this all the time but we have had our sons complimented and one mentor in our local symphony even asked told our son that his playing has improved with his online lessons.

We can never ask for a better teacher. Miss Amy is hands down one of our family's most favorite people in the entire world.

Thank you, Miss Amy for being so positive, for being incredibly forgiving, loving, interested and letting our boys learn at their pace. You have been instrumental in their ability to feel proud of the work they are able to do in music.

If you are worried that you may not find a good fit for online lessons please give Miss Amy a try! She is able to get so much learning across the distance that it makes us feel she is sitting in the room next to us!

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.

Mr. Jesse is a very effective teacher and my 16 year old daughter has progressed very quickly in playing classical guitar and violin in just under two years. The lessons are very productive while still being very enjoyable. I'd recommend him for both for students who are learning a new instrument or already have a musical background.

"Currently taking cello lessons with Johnny and his teaching style is great, learning a lot with him + becoming inspired/getting excited about progress. He's able to pick apart stuff at a very detailed level and help me work through it. Aside from all the technique aspects of cello playing he's good at explaining via online lesson with the details and what not, his motivational talks are helpful if you're having a session where for whatever reason you can't focus and you're kind of flying off the rails.....he'll also remind you that this is music and to do stuff like visualize things like colors or imagine things or recall memories, think of emotions, etc while you are playing."

"I've had something like 6 or 8 lessons with Chris so far and he's awesome. If you're not sure what to work on he'll come up with a great "standard" curriculum for you, but if you have particular interests or tastes he tailors your lessons accordingly - which keeps you motivated and makes practicing fun. He's got a huge range and can easily switch between styles if you have diverse interests. He's also cool about letting you decide how much focus you want to put on theory and learning to read music, so you never feel like you're just grinding through anything in order to get to the fun stuff. He's also just a really nice, funny dude so lessons are enjoyable from start to finish. I especially like the games he uses to teach various techniques/sight reading/improving your ear, etc. Really glad I ended up taking lessons with Chris, can't recommend him enough. :-)"

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 …

At some point, your young cellist will grow out of their instrument. Growing out of an instrument is an awkward time for everyone involved and it is not something that happens suddenly. More often than not, finding that it is time to upgrade to a larger instrument is a slow realization that something is wrong in the musical force. If you can consult a professional, please do so! This decision is beneficial for the long run although it presents its own challenges upon the switch.  What Cell …
