Private Cello Teacher

Experienced teacher of 3 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.

She was very thorough..plus her style of teaching will definitely benefit me in the long run!!
Debbie N.
Jeanmarie helped me to learn the proper way to hold the cello and the bow. She watched carefully to be sure I maintained that throughout the lesson. I am pleased that she is going to be sure I learn to play the cello well to prevent injuries. She also gave me some very basic bowing and finger exercises to practice this first week so I begin to build correct muscle memory before I go on to working with sheet music.

Private Cello Teacher

I can help the student practice and learn their way around the cello in an efficient manner. This means that I will be helping with intonation and other technique by giving exercises for the challenging passages. Lessons will be customized according to the goal of the student. Sharing my knowledge in cello and music is a passion and a goal of mine and I would love to help reach your goals.

About Alexandra

I am currently a student at the Juilliard School in New York. I began to play the cello at the age of 6. I have attended Summer programs such as Kneisel Chamber Music Festival, Heifetz International Music Institute, and the Meadowmount School of Music. Before college, I studied with Hans Jørgen Jen

While a bit humbling Alex definitely helped me fix some glaring technical issues, particularly with the bow.
Miyeon
She helped my 12 year old daughter prepare the Saint Saens Cello concerto (1st movement) for a small performance. My daughter played more spiritedly after her session with Alex. She was especially helpful for a specific bow technique.

Online Cello Teacher

With experience in cello for over 8 years, I have been in multiple ensembles and orchestras throughout my music career -- as a high school senior now, I hope to bring my experiences to life by sharing my knowledge beyond high school to college and the world. Through this step in online lessons, I strive to not only create an open environment with potential students but achieve goals together and come closer to reaching dreams. Relationships and personal connections are so irreplaceable in my life, shaping the person I am today, and teaching people, especially children, has always been my forte (no pun intended) with younger siblings, cousins, and friends.

Not only would I like to build a comfortable teacher-and-student relationship but to also meet new people and make friends! There is an infinite amount of possibilities in friendship, and it's amazing how much people can accomplish together; I will make sure to highlight that during lessons and even just casual conversations.

Luther stays where I’m at and then helps me go the next step. That is useful for consistent gradual progress without the frustrations of moving either too slow or too fast (I am a beginning tenor saxophone player). Nice interpersonal style, patient and easy going, while methodical.
Geoff K.
I think Luther is great. He works with my 10-year old son on piano, singing and even trumpet and violin as needed. My son has to work hard to progress, and Luther customizes the lesson plan for him and seems to understand him well. I'm really excited about them working together.

Online Cello Teacher

I've taught beginning through advanced cello lessons to my students in elementary, middle and high school in orchestra classes as well as privately. My cello students have received numerous scholarships to various colleges, universities and conservatories and music camps. Cello is a wonderfully robust and special instrument that has such a broad range that it needs to encompass 3 different clefs. The cello can produce beautiful tenor or bass like sounds as well as higher pitched melodies that almost sound like one is playing the violin or viola! I love teaching the cello and have taught students at all levels and ages. I've taken private cello lessons in the past with really great cello teachers and performers, so I have learned so many different teaching techniques and approaches to the cello that help to make each student's progress more rapid, consistent and comfortable.

About Ralph

I've spent most of my adult life teaching string instruments at all levels in the Northern Virginia public schools both as an orchestra director and as a private teacher. I have a music contracting business called Symphony To Go. If you would like to see my teaching studio, please consider visiting

Mr. Ralph Boehm is a great teacher. He is firm in
his teaching, yet very kind and generous. He has spectacular humanity. As far as technique, he finds out where his student is weak , and tries hard to turn the weakness into a strength and will work extra time to correct the flaws of his student. He is a rare individual
and instructor. I consider myself very lucky to have him
as my violin teacher.
Jennifer
Ralph is a wonderful cello instructor. Kind, caring, thoughtful and very knowledgeable. His directions really helped my daughter’s technique and sound quality. He teaches violin, viola and bass as well. Highly recommend!
Lori
My daughter has been taking lessons with Mr. Ralph Boehm for seven months. She loves her weekly lessons due to Mr. Boehm’s professionalism, passion for teaching and passion for music. He ensures his students have the basics down to the muscles in their hands before they progress. I highly recommend him for students who are eager to excel at their instrument.

"I took up the cello in my late 20's and am finally back taking lessons after a few years, so I had developed a lot of bad playing habits. Jessica really helped to deconstruct my technique and is helping me rebuild a stronger foundation on which to perform. She is also dependable regarding emailing and texting when needed. I would definitely recommend her!"

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 …
