I teach with the goal of imparting a comprehensive musical understanding to my students. As a result of my instruction, they will learn to listen actively and critically, make educated expressive and technical decisions, and become familiar with the standard repertoire.

In a teacher-student relationship, I value mutual respect and a spirit of open dialogue. This means that I treat my students as complete human beings and equals. I never dismiss a student’s interpretive ideas or enforce my own. Rather, we come up with something compelling together through ongoing conversation. I strive to create a safe and stimulating learning environment where students can comfortably experiment and express themselves.

I place great importance on honing technique, which I consider as the foundation for musicality and expressive freedom. To that end, a significant portion of the work I set for my students (especially those who are intermediate or advanced) will be technical in nature. During the ...

About Lucie

I am currently finishing my undergraduate studies at Columbia University while working on a master’s degree at the Juilliard School. I have a passion for teaching and take pride in my students achieve their musical goals. My curriculum targets the development of left and right hand technique while

Private Cello Teacher

Andrew has taught a wide range of students from young (and adult) beginners to advanced university students. His teacher training, education, and playing experience has taught him that good cello playing should not only sound great, but feel natural as well. Because of this, he stresses the physical elements of cello playing in connection with a strong technical foundation, as well as the development of each student's ear and individual sense of musicality.

About Andrew

Andrew began playing cello in the public school system. He earned his Bachelor of Music summa cum laude from Arizona State University, where he studied with Thomas Landschoot, and his Master of Music with distinction from DePaul University with former assistant principal of the Chicago Symphony Ste

Andrew is incredibly professional and patient. He's great at communicating with the parent and the student. He is very patient and even-keeled which worked wonders with my anxiety-prone son. Andrew has inspired him to achieve more than we ever thought possible and more importantly has instilled the gift of a life long passion in the cello. Highly recommend.
Tad S.
Andrew is calm and very patient teacher. I started the cello from a scratch with him and now I can play scales and some pieces. He plays beautifully and he knows what has to be done to improve my cello playing. I will recommend Andrew for anyone who wishes to play the cello!

I began violin as an adult. Cameron has always made certain lessons are at my level. If a technique needs more work, we focus on that. I always leave a lesson feeling like I am learning, and knowing I will continue to progress.

My first lesson was today. I know I have made the right choice of instructors.
Tim K.
Cameron is great and really wants his students to learn violin the correct way. I tend to want to take shortcuts and he encourages me to learn the foundation and work from there.

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 …
