Private Cello Teacher

As a passionate cello player, I want my students to have fun but also really understand their instrument and the music they are playing! Students will learn their scales through the circle of fifths, shifting positions, vibrato techniques, music theory, and performing with an accompanist. They are expected to have fun but to work hard - it’s totally worth it!

About Melissa

I have been playing piano for 23 years and cello for 16 years. I love sharing music with others and seeing them grow to love music as well. I am currently a pianist for the KC Ballet’s ROAD program. I have a Bachelors of Music from Lindenwood University. I have been a piano accompanist for 7 years.

Great first lesson with hands-on playing, not just an orientation. Looking forward to the next lesson!
Gerald
I decided to take up cello at age 57 as a new instrument. Melissa did a great job teaching proper technique and method and was really aware of my personal goals for what I wanted to achieve. She has a great gentle and encouraging demeanor. I would highly recommend Melissa.

Melissa was very patient and such a great teacher on my first lesson with her. It went by so fast and I learned so much!

The cello isn't a particularly easy instrument to learn, but I will say that it is SO worth it. It takes work, but what doesn't? Cello is my passion, and I hope I can help it become yours.

I studied music at university of Oregon and have a great love for music. Learning to play the cello was the best thing that ever happened to me because music is a light you can always bring with you no matter your level in the learning process. I would love to teach you music because I know it will bring you peace, confidence and happiness.

Hi, I'm J! I just finished my Bachelor's degree in Cello Performance at Oberlin Conservatory, and I'm currently starting my Master's degree in the same at DePaul University.

For the past 6 years, I have been teaching private lessons to students age eight to 21. I have taught students at the Oberlin Community Music School, secondary cello students at Oberlin College, students of the Northern Ohio Youth Orchestras, community musicians, and advanced high schoolers who want to pursue a degree in music. I also have experience teaching students with autism and ADHD.

During my undergrad, I took several string pedagogy courses and was involved with education programs in the Oberlin area. I coached sectionals and chamber music with the Northern Ohio Youth Orchestras for four years, worked as a Teaching Assistant for the Oberlin Arts and Sciences Orchestra, and served as an instructor for Parkway/Rockwood Community Education during the summer.

I'm comfortable with all ages and levels, and ...

J is a wonderful, compassionate teacher. She is fantastic when it comes to breaking down concepts for students in learning. This ability translates well into teaching proper cello technique. Her playing is wonderful too! She is encouraging and inspiring to all!
Jackie
J is a phenomenal private teacher. I´ve taken lessons from J online and in person, and in both settings J has been just as enthusiastic to teach, eager to coach to the best of their ability, and a great person to work with. J has always pushed me to get better each lesson, exposed me to new opportunities, and supported me. J is flexible, open to questions, and a super understanding and kind human as well. Overall, I am more than pleased with the education I am recieving from J and the tools they´ve given me to use during my own practice time. J has without a doubt helped me become a better cellist.
Colin
J is an extraordinary teacher and musician, very skillful and professional. Highly recommended!

I am a Juilliard graduate and active performing cellist, and I love the cello and to teach it! I have performed in Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Disney Hall, the Louvre, and with distinguished artists such as Itzhak Perlman.

I genuinely love giving lessons and just want to be able to use my passion for the instrument to help others. I fully believe I am capable of teaching the fundamentals of the instrument while maintaining an exciting learning atmosphere where students truly want to improve.

Eddie is a world class musician and teacher. He is able to communicate his immense knowledge and passion for music clearly and accessibly online. I have been playing cello since retirement and began searching for teachers online in January. I have tried working with several people online and Eddie is the only teacher that has helped me progress in this time. I hope to continue working with him until I can play the Prokofiev concerto!

"I have been a student of music for many years with piano and violin. This year it was time for a change. Taking on cello with Victor has been the best experience. He is kind, patient and provides a wonderful learning environment. Although my lessons are done online it seems no different then if he were standing in my living room! I would encourage anyone to take cello lessons from Victor as he teaches a unique way with every student. By the end of your first lesson you will love what you learn and practice to get better. It has been super fun and I look forward to learning more!"

Not only does he simply and patiently explain technique and other musical elements, but he effectively explains the reason for the different techniques and musical elements. This not only helps the learner master a piece of music, but also molds the learner into a more competent musician. I highly recommend Jonny for anyone seeking music to enrich their lives!"

"Jessica is a passionate musician who is as equally skilled at teaching her craft to children as she is knowledgeable about Cello. She has been detail oriented, but she has also been exceptionally patient and kind. I have been thrilled with Jessica's offering of in-home lessons. With 4 children, I already do too much chauffeuring for school and sports activities, which would have made music lessons for my youngest very difficult. My 10yo has literally stated that she "loves" Jessica and that "she's so sweet." We have only seen Jessica twice so far, but we hope to continue our lessons with her."

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 …
