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.

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

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 ...

Online Cello Teacher

I live for helping others find their fullest musical potential. Daughter to a teach and a truck driver, my parents couldn't afford lessons when I was in school. I want to stress that I want those students who are being denied affordable private lessons. You are just as capable of greatness as kids paying out the nose for lessons.

I strongly believe EVERYONE is capable of learning an instrument. We all learn in different ways. Perhaps you tried learning once before and it didn't work out? Don't let that discourage you! You just need the right teaching method.

Cello has been my passion since I started playing in 1994 in NJ. My love for teaching bloomed when my high school music department gave me two hours to teach middle school beginning strings (Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass) every school day, and I have been hooked since! All South Jersey Orchestra several years, and attended West Chester University of PA on scholarship, where I basked in one of the best music education programs in ...

About Bonnie

I want YOU to discover the music that's always been inside of you. That nagging voice in the back of your head telling you that you don't have a musical bone in your body is WRONG. Everyone is capable of learning an instrument. It's just a matter of finding the right fit in instrument and teacher.

Great first lesson! Bonnie offered great beginning tips and encouraging complements. The first lesson book looks very appropriate for my skill level. We did have some connection issues which Bonnie handled very well.
I am energized to practice and work toward my next lesson.

"Jessica is an excellent instructor and cellist. She has an engaging personality and a creative mind, e.g., explaining concepts several different ways until the student understands. I started new to cello and enjoy lessons, which include technique, theory and individual pieces (separate from the instruction books) that are challenging but fun, satisfying my desire to play familiar classical pieces. I have recommended her to several friends for cello and violin."

"Stephen is not only a gifted cellist, but also an intuitive and devoted teacher. I've been working with him online for several years now, and my playing has benefitted significantly from his technical expertise and understanding of historical contexts. Few teachers are as ready and willing to explore repertoire as eclectic as I have with Stephen, whose insight extends from the ancient to the contemporary. I attribute my success on NYSSMA/All-State to his wise musical counsel!"

"Maria has been my cello teacher for 6 years. She has made learning the cello so much fun and such a great part of me life. She is very positive and sweet even when I mess up and she helps me feel good about my mistakes. She looks at what I do well and gets me excited about working on the songs. She always helps me stay in perfect pitch and helps me prepare for when songs get harder, by making sure I have good tequnique. She always knows what to work on to make my lesson as successful as possible. After six years of playing with her I am playing this amazing and beautiful music. The Bach Cello concertos and the other songs I play make me feel so happy relaxed and filled with joy. She loves the cello and being a musician. And every time you go to her lesson, you just feel the love she has for the instrament and the music and how she wants to share that feeling with you and help you have the same feeling. Maria is the reason I can play so well and she is also the reason I have continued to play for so long and will continue to play for the rest of my life. I am so happy that I have the most amazing, loveing and fun teacher in the world. I think everyone thinking of playing an instrament should choose cello just so they can take lessons with Maria. My lesson is the highlight of my week.

"Ellen is wonderful. She's been playing cello for over a decade and received her degree from Berklee College of Music. Knowing that, I anticipated that she would be somewhat intimidating in our lesson together, but she was the exact opposite-- she was so down to earth, and she was very encouraging when I felt like I was not getting the hang of things in time. She's also very receptive to your needs/desires. We just barely crossed paths while she was in town, and I was merely hoping to get a feel for the instrument, so we had a very playful (but informative!) experience. I know that she also has a wealth of formal training, so no matter what your pace--she's your girl. She also has a cool band of her own, which you should check out!"

"A fantastic cellist with a thirst for continually pushing her own musical knowledge and limits.

Johanna has been a great contributor to many orchestras I have conducted. She continuously seeks to further her knowledge to help make the music come to live and freely shares this knowledge with others around her. She continuously strives to find a perfect balance between technical acuity and musical phrasing/interpretation in her playing. I cannot overemphasize the benefit of her skill in this area, as it results in very technically competent musicians, who are also expressive!

She is friendly, encourages other struggling musicians. She always shows up to rehearsals/concerts early, with a smiling, can do demeanor, and a willingness to help wherever there might be a need.

She is professional and personable, she is always my first recommendation to parents and students looking for 'the right' music teacher."

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 …
