I love showing other people how to play musical instruments, especially cello! If you're a beginner, I'll get you playing music right away; note-reading, scales, and stuff can come later. If you've been playing for a little while, we can work together to help you learn new skills, new music, and practice techniques that can help you progress quickly while avoiding frustration.

About Sammy

Hello, I'm Sammy! Making music is one of my favorite things to do. I believe that music is for everyone and lessons are about you, the student. So we can tailor your lessons to whatever you need. Whether you're a beginner, playing/learning for fun, or looking to enhance your playing, I can help

I think it was a great lesson. Although it would be great to be able to jump in and start playing. Sammy gave me tools and exercises to help build a strong foundation in my learning and playing!

I am an adult contemplating learning cello as a new hobby. Nicholas was very nice and answered all of my questions. I am looking forward to starting regular lessons with Nicholas.
Lydia "Dia"
I learned all kinds of things I never knew about my posture, bow hold, and bowing. I am further excited to continue to practice and learn more from Nicholas. I am an adult learner returning to cello after 20 years.

Lessons will cater to the needs of each individual student with a focus on a strong technical foundation.

Bryce G.
I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

"I took 10 lessons with a different teach last summer and ended my package not being able to read sheet music or find my finger placement on the strings without second thought.

I have had just 3 lessons with Ellen thus far, and am reading sheet music like a wiz and gaining more and more confidence each lesson with my finger placement and now bowing.

Ellen has a wonderful system of teaching that truly makes everything she exposes you to stick, and has been getting me very excited to continue on knowing that I am in good hands and will progress quickly because of it. I will most definitely continue to see Ellen."

"In 10 months, Susanna has taken my 6th grader, a beginner, to acceptance into our region's youth symphony, and her school is putting her in 8th grade orchestra instead of 7th grade because she's so far advanced. Susanna accomplished this with the perfect balance of serious hard work and fun, done with a smile, kind words, and an uncanny ability to pinpoint what the student is able to improve at the right time. We're also starting younger brother on violin with Susanna in a couple of weeks, because she's great."

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. Even someone who puts in just 30 minutes a day will notice a signi …
