Rachel's amazing. She is definitely teaching an old dog new tricks.

Best instructor ever. Very patient. Knows how to handle an old guy like me. My playing doesn't really deserve someone as good, but I'm thankful to have her.

I am an early intermediate level cello player. At the outset of the year I had set some very specific goals that I hoped to achieve and set out to find a teacher that would help me achieve those. Michael has done just that. I have taken lessons now from Michael for about 6 months and cannot say enough good things about him. He is extremely knowledgeable. He is always well prepared, and ready to make progress on advancing my skills with the instrument. He is patient and ready to work within my own limitations. He is always encouraging and positive, and constructive in his critique. I would highly recommend Michael, whether you are a beginner or a seasoned cellist.

Michael is a great instructor as well as a kind soul. He offers an appropriate mix of encouragement, guidance, and correction. As an adult learner, I appreciate that he stretches me beyond my comfort zone,
Chris S.
Highly recommend Michael B. I'm an adult learners. & He took time to understand my goals and worked with me to make real progress. He has a really easy to talk to and encouraging way about him. I expect he's good with younger learners too.

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.

I have been teaching cello for 6 years and have recently earned a Doctor of Musical Arts degree.

Keeping the instrument and music an important part of the student's life is important to me and I always try and look for ways to keep them engaged with music personally, as well.

"After just my first lesson, I can already say that Jessica is an excellent instructor. She is thorough and very kind in making corrections to ensure long term success and the proper foundation to build skills. As an adult, I am grateful to have a skilled instructor who knows technique very well and has a gentle and professional manner. She is open to questions outside of the lesson time, and provides very good feedback. I am looking forward to weekly lessons!"

"Corey worked with my daughter for four years, beginning her freshman year. He began by helping her with music assigned for her orchestra class, finding specific techniques to improve upon as they went. By her senior year they were working on advanced techniques, resulting in her reaching State for Solo & Ensemble.
Throughout her entire time with Corey her confidence grew tremendously. As a parent I appreciated the strong relationship and mutual respect they developed. I have recommended Corey and would continue to do so."

"It’s true what the other reviews say about her kindness and patience. Lenna is a warm, thoughtful and generous human being. She also happens to be a gifted teacher and skilled cellist. She is able to correct tiny details in my playing that make a huge difference in sound. Better yet, she approaches it in a way that I might be able to make those corrections for myself, by asking me what I heard first and listening to my observations. Also her approach to practice and playfulness is something I aim to use in many aspects of my life."

"Chris's style of teaching and breadth of musical styles and genre was a breath of fresh air. After 4 years of strictly classical Suzuki method, it was time to try something new to keep my 12 year old daughter interested. She and Chris are currently transposing a Queen song so my daughter can play it on cello. Chris's teaching style is laid back and the lessons are largely directed by the student's interests, which is just what was needed in our case."

Cello Thumb Position: Where to Place Your Fingers & Hands

Cello thumb position is one of the big leaps of technique for advancing cellists and is one of the skills that sets more advanced students from the intermediate. This new technique opens up the higher ranges of the instrument and allows us to play more advanced solos and etudes. This technique is not something you should rush into though! Make sure to take things slowly at first and master the basic concepts before moving on.  When Should You Focus on Your Cello Thumb Position? There have to …

What are the Hardest Cello Pieces? How to Get from Beginner to Advanced Player

As a beginner I often told myself I would know I am a really great cellist when I could play Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee at full speed. To my young ears, this simply had to be one of the hardest cello pieces with its high range, chromaticism, and famously fast tempo. As my musical career continued I worked on these and other skills to reach a point I could begin learning the piece confidently, and it was only a matter of time before I achieved my goal. Of course, this wasn’ …

What is the Suzuki Cello Method?

The Suzuki method, founded in 1945 by violinist Shinichi Suzuki as the Talent Education Movement, is one of the most enduring teaching methods, or pedagogies for young string players. Suzuki’s main goal for his music education system was to give students a “noble spirit,” which would instill respect and cooperation through his method. The method was brought to America in the 1960s by John D. Kendall, and today the Suzuki Association of the Americas instructs new teachers and studen …
