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.
Clint
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!

Christy
Claire makes sure that she answers any questions that I have. She goes at my pace. She's a great teacher! She is so experienced and patient.
Christy
Taking lessons on line is sometimes challenging; for instance, the instructor is talking but sometimes her words become garbled, like watching television and the picture and sound fades in and out.

I thought the teacher wanted me to just memorize the one section (the tune); she wasn't clear the first time (the first lesson) on memorizing the tune for playing All of the exercises without looking at the music notes. So, yesterday's lesson wasn't as good as I had hoped it would be.

I love teaching strings. Cello was my first instrument. I focus heavily on bow technique. I have gotten students into youth orchestras and passed college auditions. I like to use the Essential Elements and Suzuki books.
I also offer online group lessons at a highly discounted price. I suggest that all my students join. This is a great option for kids while class is out.

Bailey was an excellent lesson instructor! She took the time to make sure I was getting exactly what I wanted out of my violin lessons and tailored her approach to meet my background and ability level. She is extremely knowledgeable about all of the instruments she teaches, and her positive energy is contagious! I learned so much from Bailey and always enjoyed our lessons together.
Jack
Bailey gives great feedback and helped my son learn new songs quickly. Thanks!
Patrick
Bailey is an amazing teacher! I am primarily a low brass player, but had wanted to get better at piano. Bailey was able to analyze my musical needs, and developed a plan for my specific goals. She is great at focusing on specific problems and giving you advice for fixing them. At the same time, she is patient, and would be great with children, as well as adults. I would highly recommend getting lessons from Bailey!

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.

About Leah

I have been learning music since I was 6 years old. It was a requirement in our house, but, nonetheless, growing up in a house of musician siblings had me excited to get started. With 13 siblings, you can imagine that our house was always full of some kind of music. Having grown up in that world

Leah is an excellent teacher! She is the third cello instructor I have had, and she is by far the best. Not only is Leah a superb cellist herself, but she is great at explaining concepts in a clear and encouraging way. I am in my late 50s, and I don't grasp new material as quickly as a younger student probably would, but Leah is able to diagnose the difficulties I am having and suggest effective ways to overcome them. I cannot praise her enough.
Jason
Leah is a strong cellist and very kind and patient with even young children.

Hi, I'm a certified Suzuki cello teacher and professional cellist in Pittsburgh, Pa! I've been teaching for 10 years and have a very active studio. Students have the opportunity to be involved in recitals, group classes, and collaborative projects - whether in-person or online.

The Suzuki method is based on the principle that "Every Child Can". Given proper care and dedication, anyone can learn to play an instrument. I often say, "Rarely too young and never too old". This proven method has you learn great technique through songs rather than just exercises - it is always based in music making. I would love to share more about myself and the method if you are interested. The pursuit of learning an instrument is an amazing experience. The benefits run far deeper than the joy and beauty that is created. It is my privilege to help many students cultivate this lifelong love of music and I would love to help you, too!

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 …
