Private Cello Teacher

I have been teaching for 18 years and have taught hundreds of satisfied students. When you sign up for lessons with me, you will begin by learning the basics of the instrument including proper holding and playing position, tone production, rhythm, first position notes, basic notation. Once you get the basics down, you will learn how to play very simple melodies and songs. All of this can happen within the first 4-6 months of playing.

About Dave

Dave K. began playing guitar at the age of 10. His influences include Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, Guthrie Govan, Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmour, Jeff Beck, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Pat Martino, Pat Metheny and Scott Henderson. At the age of 17 he began teaching private guitar and bass lessons to classmates

I haven't played the violin since I was in middle school, and I wanted to re-learn to play it. I am so glad I picked Dave, he is very professional and made me feel very comfortable. I jumped in with both feet and Dave made the instructions at our first lesson easy for me to understand. Excellent location and studio is awesome.
Rushia Hendricks
Excellent lesson. Does a wonderful job at taking older students and gently holding their feet to the fire to bring out the best- even under the most challenging of circumstances. Kudos to being such a uniquely great teacher!
Tom L.
I realize it was the first lesson but I was a little disappointed that we spend nearly the entire time on housekeeping items, like canceling and re-scheduling appointments. I think that could have been covered with an e-mail or handout. I also thought we spent too much time going over the differences between acoustic and electric guitars - considering my age and background. Would have liked to see him demonstrate what I was asked to practice before the next lesson instead of just being told to refer to the workbook.

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!

Best instructor ever
Samuel
My son is quite shy and anxious about performing below what he develops as an expectation for himself - in everything, from sports to school work to music. Nicole's combination of professional excellence, efficiency and warmth made him immediately feel comfortable and open to constructive feedback . Nicole's teaching style is excellent. He is improving noticeably with every lesson.
Daisy H.
Daisy very much enjoyed her first lesson with Nicole and said she was very encouraging and gave her great pointers about how to improve. We are so pleased and look forward to more lessons to come!

"We didn’t have a cello teacher in our small town so we decided to try taking online lessons. Jessica took my daughter through Suzuki books 1-6. She was very personable and very focused. She kept my daughter motivated and even allowed performance opportunities (Skyping into recitals). We have since moved to a bigger city and my daughter takes live lessons. Her new teacher (who has a doctorate in cello performance) was very impressed with my daughter’s technique. Thanks Jessica for giving my daughter a great musical foundation!"

"My daughter is extremely shy and introvert, she said she felt comfortable with DeAndre. From my observance of him interacting with her he is very patient and is able to work well with young beginning students. My daughter is 11 and her only experience was playing with her strings class last year in 5th grade. You can tell DeAndre has a very calm personality that translates into his lessons with his students. That is such an important quality to possess when working with young beginning students. Thanks for a great lesson we look forward to many more with you."

"Corey has been working with our children for over 4 years. My son took three years of violin lessons and my daughter is on her second year of cello lessons. He is always a lot of fun to work with and helps his students develop a love of music early on. They have learned so much working with Corey and are advanced for their age/class, have participated in honors orchestra, a local youth symphony, and All-State. Corey is an enthusiastic dedicated professional, is always on time and has adapted his teaching methods well for working online. He has always been great working with our busy schedule and providing make-up lessons when needed. We look forward to many more years of lessons with him."

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 …
