Having 10 years of experienced cello teaching, I feel very comfortable helping my students understand the foundations of cello technique. I graduated with a Bachelors of Music from the music conservatory Cleveland Institute of Music, and got my Masters in Music from Northwestern University's Bienen School of Music.

In addition, I completed a 2 year rigorous Suzuki Technique Pedagogy Program where I am now certified to teach all 10 levels of the cello books. I am confident in explaining any questions a student may have. I love to make practicing a game, so that way we are developing the proper skills but also challenging ourselves while having fun! Even I can understand that practicing can get tiresome and dull at times!

As a traveling musician who has performed all over the world, I feel it is important for students to appreciate all types of music. While classical training and technique are absolutely crucial to the beginning stages of a student's development, I like to show ...

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.

I give him ten from ten definitely one of the greatest instructors either in the experience that he has or in explaining and the most important thing he is respectful i recommend so much!
Farreen
Great at making sure you understand the basics of music theory before proceeding to the instrument itself. Helping me become a more confident and smarter musician.
Francine D.
I've taken lessons before and have always become disappointed because there was never any structure to the lessons and theory was treated as secondary. I wanted to really delve into theory because that is the knowledge needed to have no limits. Finally, I found Jimmy. He is a true teacher. Jimmy makes sure he teaches you the theory behind what you are doing. I have been playing for over ten years and was not progressing. After just a few lessons with him, I am starting to truly see the fretboard. I am finally excited again!

"Ginni taught both, my husband and I, piano and singing lessons. We had the best experience ever with Ginni learning to play the piano and sing. The only reason we stopped is because our lives got more busy with work and we now relocated to NY and have a baby. If we would be living in AZ still we would choose her as our baby's teacher. Highly recommend her!!! Ginni, I thank God for you!!!!"

"My son has been playing piano for 9 years but he hit a wall with ISSMA state silver in piano solo last year, so our goal is achieve piano solo state gold this year. We made the switch to Ardalan didn't know what to expect just 2 months before ISSMA events and my son has earned ISSMA state distinction gold medal this year with Ardalan's help and hard working.

Ardalan's teaching method is eye opening to us after many piano teachers we have experienced in the past. He has been teaching my son many technical piano playing skills he desperately needs but no other teachers have ever taught him before. And Ardalan's performance preparation tips are so helpful for my son to perform in the real event."
