Private Cello Teacher

As a cellist with 18 years of playing experience and 5+ years of teaching I have learned that music can change your life at any age and even can help you heal from whatever struggles life throws at you. Music and learning an instrument can improve your brain functions in a way that no other activity can accomplish. I am so passionate about teaching and customize my teaching style to each student individually because the same approach does not work for everyone. I strongly believe in that and try to get to know my students, who they are, what their strengths and weaknesses are and how I can help to overcome those. I get very involved with my students and build a personal relationship with each one of them to further help them with cello. I've had some wonderful instructors myself including Amir Eldan and Hans Jensen who taught me not only how to play the instrument itself but also how to use those skills that come with being a musician in life.
In my lessons I focus on ...

We will have engaging lessons, well-rounded with strings technique, music theory, listening skills, and more! Each lesson will be customized to the student's individual needs and we'll have fun in the learning process! Let's grow our strings community!

Private Cello Teacher

Good habits and an excellent attitude make great cellists. It doesn't hurt to love music too. I love music and I love to share my passion with my students.

Having a teacher who is an experienced performer is an important quality in a teacher. I am a professional classical musician currently working as a freelance cellist in the Chicago area. I play with Chicago Philharmonic, the Northbrook Symphony, the Lyric Opera of Chicago, and the Northwest Indiana Symphony, among others. Before coming to Chicago I played for 13 seasons with the Alabama Symphony Orchestra.

I have taught privately for over 10 years including 2 years in Paris. My teaching is a reflection of my teacher, Phillippe Muller. I studied with Msr. Muller while studying at the Paris Conservatory. Msr. Muller is currently a Professor of Cello at the Manhattan School of Music in New York City.

Rob is a terrific teacher. He covers the fundamentals which my son really needed even though he'd been playing for several years before he started with Rob. Highly recommend.

Thanks Robert!!!

He is an awesome tutor, and I learn a lot from this lesson. Unlike my previous tutor, he uses his cello to demonstrate things. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to improve at playing the cello.

"Our experience has been excellent. Kelvin's lessons are a challenging supplement to my son's school orchestra program. We also appreciate Kelvin's quick response to email and accommodating a few short notice notice schedule changes. My son enjoys his weekly Skype lesson and seems to be making great progress. We highly recommend Kelvin Lin."

"Tszto IS THE BEST CELLO TEACHER I have ever had because it is the first time someone explains me how to BREATH and ENJOY playing the cello, with a PERFECT TECHNIQUE and posture. He loves to play cello and he teaches with the same PASSION. He is super PATIENT with me and has the best way to correct me and explain me. He is an amazing cello player and really pedagogic. I had a german style teacher in the past and I stop playing cello because I didn't enjoy it and had pain and frustration. Tszto is helping me to reconnect with my cello, he corrects my posture (so it is a pleasant time with absolute no pain) and playing is turning to be a movement meditation for me, I love it now. I can feel and hear the progress on each lesson, thanks to him and to the homework (practice 15 mins, listen and reading). THANK YOU Tszto! After so many years, I am able to start again from cero and with so much passion. Thank you!"

"I had picked up the cello last August with absolutely 0 experience with strings. I had one other teacher when I first began and unfortunately needed to take a break due to financials.

Fast forward to this year and I had quite accidentally found Rhody's information but I am so glad that I did!

He is a fun, patient and knowledgeable teacher. He explains things in a very simplistic way and makes sure you're both on the same page. He understands that life gets in the way of practice sometimes but kindly pushes you to keep trying and keep practicing (that IS the only way we'll get better, y'all).

Since I've started practicing and learning through Rhody, I feel like I actually understand how the music is ought to be played...and that's a sure step in the direction of truly understanding such a beautiful instrument.

I could go on but I'll leave it with this: please go through Rhody! You won't find a better teacher!"

"My 11-year-old daughter has had lessons with Jessica for about three months and has learned so much from Jessica. Prior to these online lessons, our daughter started learning cello with a local teacher for about 3-4 months. The teacher stopped giving lessons unexpectedly and we couldn't find a replacement so decided to go online. Doing music lessons online with someone you haven't met in person can seem daunting, but Jessica has figured out how to come across over Skype as fully present, engaged, positive and encouraging. We almost feel as if she's there in person. She can pick up on many things by asking the right questions and follows through with proper advice and recommendations for improvement. At one point, our daughter had concerns with wrist pain and Jessica fully took it upon herself to look into the matter. Jessica is very timely and flexible. At times we've had to adjust the schedule and she was quite accommodating. She also had to work with our daughter's solo performance at school and amazingly in less than 2 months prepared her for the piece. We highly recommend."

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 …
