Private Cello Teacher

I am a classically trained cellist and have been teaching for the past 8 years. I have a Master’s degree and a Post Graduate Degree in Music Performance, with emphasis in cello. I have played with top orchestras like the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Boston Pops, and have played with musicians such as Yo-Yo Ma. When teaching, I strive to find the right balance between technique (which is key to improving), and other aspects of music such as musicality, historical context and performance practice. I have taught people of all ages and levels, and love sharing my passion for cello with each one of my students!

I recently came back to cello after 10 years of not playing and taking lessons with Diana has been great and refreshing! She is an experience teacher and a terrific player. I enjoy going for lessons as she takes her music business seriously and shares her knowledge and passion with great care. I would recommend her to any cello enthusiasts in the Chicago area!
Susan
I took my 7 year old son for cello lessons for the first time and we have been really happy with the results. Diana brings fun activities to the class plus she is organized and reliable. I would recommend her 100%.
Miguel
One of the most engaging learning experiences in my life. First of all, Diana is very patient, which is a great quality not many teachers have. Diana also has a very clear way of explaining difficult things, in such a way it makes it very easy to understand. Always punctual and a very disciplined and professional person. Needless to say, an amazingly talented cellist.

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!

Ms. Xu is an excellent teacher- very patient, kind, and experienced. I have had cello lessons before but I was in need of an "upgrade". She really helped my technique, sound, and musicianship overall. I highly recommend her without a hesitation!

I can help the student practice and learn their way around the cello in an efficient manner. This means that I will be helping with intonation and other technique by giving exercises for the challenging passages. Lessons will be customized according to the goal of the student. Sharing my knowledge in cello and music is a passion and a goal of mine and I would love to help reach your goals.

I had to stop because of the pandemic. Lessons were thorough, she was insistent and very detailed.

While a bit humbling Alex definitely helped me fix some glaring technical issues, particularly with the bow.
Miyeon
She helped my 12 year old daughter prepare the Saint Saens Cello concerto (1st movement) for a small performance. My daughter played more spiritedly after her session with Alex. She was especially helpful for a specific bow technique.

As an adult beginner, I appreciate how patient he is and he explains technique/fundamentals in a way I can understan. I definitely feel challenged, and I leave each lesson wanting to practice for the next lesson. He’s also provided a lot of guidance for purchasing a cello and bow. Awesome experience so far."

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 …
