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 !

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

This is your guy.

Really good, balanced teacher for my 9 year old. Focused but not strict, relaxed and curious but not a push over. Great sound too - my son and I were both very impressed with his playing, and that's the best kind of teacher to learn from imo.

Caleb knows when to interrupt with a tip or a useful instruction and knows how to frame it in a way that makes sense to the student.

I am currently pursuing my doctoral degree at the Eastman School of Music in vocal performance and literature. I believe in empowering my students so that they can sing in all styles of music that interest them with ease and freedom. Good singing is good singing and I am comfortable teaching classical, musical theater, pop, jazz, country etc. I like to set up my students with a strong foundation for singing so that they can practice efficiently and overcome vocal obstacles without my instruction.

About Michael

Hello everyone, I am Michael - I am currently in school at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY pursuing my doctoral degree in vocal performance and literature. I have sung all over the world in operas, musicals and with professional choirs. I enjoy teaching all levels of singing and love

Great teacher - funny, patient and understanding. I look forward to more lessons with Michael in the future!
Elizabeth
I started lessons with Michael having done both contemporary voice and years of choir. But prior to training with Michael, I'd never really been coached as to how to properly sing in a classical style. He's allowed me to find an entire element of my voice I didn't know I had and made it incredibly straightforward to progress. I now absolutely love singing in a way I didn't previously think I would.
Abby
Michael is knowledgeable, funny, and thoughtful. I am a wind instrumentalist, and Michael tailored voice lessons to discuss topics specifically related to my areas of experience. I would highly recommend Michael for voice lessons!

Moa is the best and makes everything feel very light and comfortable! I had never taken a singing lesson before and can be paralyzingly shy. I’ve taken 5 classes so far and will continue to take lessons with her for writing and guitar. I highly recommend taking class with her :)
Jaden
Moa’s definitely the best. She’s taught me so much and has transformed my voice in just 5 lessons. Everyday I have a lesson with her, I am so excited because she makes it a lot of fun! Can’t wait to continue getting lessons from her and I definitely recommend her to anyone trying pursue a singing career.
Amanda
I'm a beginner at guitar and never did I think that after 3 lessons I would be playing the iconic rock songs that I know and love! Moa has an uncanny way of breaking things down and making a complex instrument easy to learn. I've throughly enjoyed every lesson thus far, and look forward to eventually becoming proficient with Moa's help!

"Ronnie comes to our home to teach our 3 kids piano and guitar. Not only is he talented and patient, he always keeps their interest alive! Ronnie also focuses considerably on musical theory which is often something sorely lacking in musical instruction. Additionally, he's really just a wonderful guy with a great attitude and spirit!"

"If you’re a non-musician and you want to become a musician, and you want to do that while learning the mandolin, work with Andrew. I came to him with a limited musical background and no previous mandolin experience; he was able to assess whatever musical knowledge and literacy I had and develop it. He was holistic in his approach: we worked on theory, we worked on fundamentals, we worked on right and left hand stuff, and I was never bored or bogged down the way many adult learners can be.

I would say that within six months of weekly lessons with him I was working on sight reading music in two or three genres at moderate tempos, I was able to learn songs from listening, and I was honing my technique to bluegrass playing and going to bluegrass jams in New York. He was always attuned to my level and to what I was doing with my playing. He put a great deal of thought into lesson planning and chose to work on pieces that appealed to my individual taste, prepared me for the musical community I was breaking into, and generally kept my momentum up during my first year of mandolin playing and got me to a place I was really happy with. He was on the line when I upgraded my mandolin, because when you’re dropping a couple grand on something you call your sensei. And he was and is a great sensei.

One of my biggest musical hurdles, if not my biggest, is performance anxiety. Andrew has a great disposition for making people feel relaxed in a lesson setting; he’s an easygoing, sensitive and cool guy who can show up for you wherever you happen to be that week. He also has a really great dog named Ryder who liked to hang out during lessons.

I would 10/10 1,000% recommend Andrew. If he is not already your mandolin teacher, hire him and congratulate yourself! You are on your way to mandolin greatness."
