In this lesson I’ll help you make character choices for any upcoming show or audition. Have an audition coming up? Bring your monologue or song you’re using and let’s find the best way to make the directors feel what you’d like them to so that you can get that role! Just starting out? Let’s work on the basics so that you feel confident enough to go and audition for your first show!

Cello is famous for its deep and warm sound, probably the widest range from low to high register. It is used for solo, chamber music, ensembles, chamber and symphony orchestras.
But the most important cello can change your mind and fulfill your soul like no other instruments !

Nazar is a great instructor. He was quickly able to assess my goals and ability and did a great job pointing out areas for improvement in an encouraging and positive way.
Jessica
Nazar has a wonderful ability to relate to people. He has excellent skill and enthusiasm, making our son WANT to learn. We highly recommend him...
Kelvin
I've been working with Nazar since 1998. Not only does he know his stuff and makes his teaching personal to your needs, but he also has a way to make you feel successful even when you are struggling. you always feel better about your playing when you leave than when you got to his studio. He recognizes your learning style and what you want to accomplish, then builds his teaching around that.

If you are looking for a cello teacher (and yes, he also teaches piano and other instruments) I'd say put your time and money into Nazar and you, you will feel it is one of your best investments

I am a passionate musician and educator. I have worked for many years as a private flute instructor on both the modern and baroque flute, gaining experience teaching many age and skill levels. Lessons are tailored to the individual needs and goals of the student, with an emphasis on developing tone, technique, and breathing skills. Students will also be encouraged to think about the music that they play. As a musician, I developed an interest in the field of Historical Performance over the course of my undergraduate degree. In this field, one not only studies the music of past periods, but studies its relevance to the social, political, and cultural circumstances of its time. I believe this puts me in a unique position as a music educator, as I understand the importance of teaching students to connect musical works to their historical contexts. This is a skill that will provide them with a richer understanding of all types of music, including both classical and popular, and give them ...

He started out making sure Mackenzie was using the right techniques for breathing, mouthpiece, etc. He wants to be sure you know the correct method from start to finish and doesn't just teach you the notes/music. We were very pleased with his teaching method. Thank you."

But she listened to my expectations and what I wanted out of the lessons, and tailored the lesson to those expectations. Plus she gave me vocal excercises to help me a better singer, have fun, and enjoy the whole experience. Highly recommended."
