My students should expect a well-rounded education on cello involving technical studies, playing in a variety of styles including, playing solo works, and having a great time!

About Nicolas
Hello there!

I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and raised in Miami, FL. I started my musical career at the age of 8, singing in chorus, playing the recorder, and shortly afterwards moving to the guitar, and the violin.

When I was 15, I was nominated for a James L. Knight Award in Music, and I performed as a violin soloist with the Miami Beach Symphony Orchestra, and the Greater Miami Youth Symphony playing Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 3 in G major. One of my most memorable experiences when I was a kid! In high school, I formed my own string quartet and we would perform all over the South Florida community especially at hospitals and for the elderly. At 16 years old, I was also given an internship with the New World Symphony, conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas, for about 2 years. During this time, I was able to take lesso
ns from master violinists such as Marc Thayer and Glen Cherry. During this time, I was given the opportunity to perform with the New World Symphony at 17 years old for pops concert conducted and performed by Chuck Mangione in El Doral, FL.

I later on accepted a scholarship for violin performance at the University of Miami for my Bachelor of Music, and earned my Master of Music from Florida State University. I also taught string orchestras for 10 years at Ruth K. Broad Bay Harbor K-8 Center, South Florida Youth Symphony as conductor (and now composer!), and conductor of the Greater Miami Youth Symphony. I was appointed Assistant Conductor of the Alhambra Orchestra for two seasons under the guidance of my high school orchestra teacher, Mr. Reginald Nicholson (1947-2011). It was here where I was able to work on my compositions, orchestrations, and conduct a fine group of musicians.

I now live in sunny Los Angeles, in the Sherman Oaks area, and I'm loving the new change. I am eager to share my knowledge with new students on various subjects such as learning a string instrument to learning a different language. Please feel free to ask me any questions.

I am looking forward to getting to know you and your goals for learning!
____________________________________________________

LESSON DETAILS
I have been teaching music as an adult, certified teacher since I was in college, but have done teaching as early as 15 years old.

I will help you create a fantastic technical base so you will be able to play with ease as your skill level develops, all while keeping the lessons fun and engaging.

MUSIC STUDIO
Piano, Violin, Guitar, Music Stand, General Teaching Aids, Recording Equipment.

TRAVEL EQUIPMENT
I can provide a music stand and basic materials but the student is expected to have their own instruments and to buy the music I recommend. I can recommend various vendors/shops where you can buy the ideal instrument for your lessons.

EXPERTISE
I am classically-trained musician that also specializes in Tango performance, Latin/Jazz, Rock, and a variety of other styles. I believe that training in the classical aesthetic will create a firm, solid foundation to crossover into other areas listed above. With a good dose of technical exercises, scales, and a variety of repertoire, my students always turn out well-rounded, ready to tackle almost any kind of music they wish to learn.

Thank you for stopping by and let me know what you would like to learn!

Nicholas is very friendly and made me feel welcome, understanding and adjusting the pace as I needed. It was a great experience and I am feeling motivated to practice on my own. I am no music expert, and yet I think he's absolutely great.

I have to admit, starting violin lessons as an adult is really weird, but it's something I've always wanted to try. I tried another teacher on here and she was a bit impatient and short with me (how does she teach children??!), so I tried Nick due to his location from my home. He's been fantastic! He's a great combo of being patient, caring, and encouraging, but also stern enough to get me to do what I need to get better. I'm sure it's not easy working with an adult that can "talk back" haha. He clearly knows what he's doing and he helps motivate me to keep learning. And he's very understanding when I run a tad late sometimes. I imagine he'd be great with kids too if he's great with a difficult adult like me.

It was truly a pleasure meeting Concetta for my first ever violin lesson. It is difficult to learn anything at the age 40, specially a musical instrument, but she made it comfortable and easy to understand. She's extremely patient a key quality when teaching a subject such a music to anyone. I would say, give her teaching style a try and you won't regret it. Very knowledgeable indeed.

Very patient and beyond knowledgeable! I haven't done anything with TakeLessons before and my online class was hosted via skype so it was easy to get connected and learn at my own pace. I like that my lessons will be tailored to my style and my level of musical understanding. She has excellent follow-up for after the lessons as well. I'm excited to be a student again :)

I highly recommend Maurissa for oil painting. She has taught me so much in only a few months. The lessons are targeted and efficient. She assesses where I need work and gives me exercises to practice on outside of class. Also, the location itself is an amazing building.

Maurissa is an excellent professional art teacher. She is very supportive and takes time to explain or show you how to do a technique when you get flustered. I recommend Maurissa highly to anyone who wants to learn how to paint or draw. She is also very flexible with her schedule which great for my busy work schedule.

I have been teaching cello for twelve years. In that time I have learned that each student requires a unique approach to their education. Your strengths and weaknesses are what make the music you perform successful. I will help you build on your strengths and develop the areas where you struggle so that they become second nature. You will quickly see enormous gains in the quality of your sound so that you feel great about performing for an audience. I look forward to seeing you grow.

About Alexander
My name is Alexander, a recent graduate of The Boston Conservatory M.M. in Cello Performance program. I love teaching students of all ages and abilities the joys of practicing, playing, and performing on the cello. I am an avid performer of solo, orchestral, and chamber music. I spent the final year of my undergraduate studies researching ways to more effectively teach chamber music.

My teaching philosophy puts a strong emphasis on mindfulness, which results in superb technical development and allows the student to make their musical mark on the works they perform. I encourage all students to engage in music making beyond the practice room and share the gifts they have. I realize that many students begin playing instruments during formative times in their lives. Through their musical journey, students learn much about themselves, and t
heir lessons help them to gain confidence in who they are. I look forward to mentoring this journey.

Alexander has been teaching my 13 year old son cello for the past 8 months. He is by far the best instructor we have ever had. He is the perfect blend of patient, understanding, encouraging, and talented. I love that he praises what is done well and corrects what needs more work. There isn't anyone that I would trust with my child's musical education more than Alexander.

I believe it is extremely important to combine a solid technical foundation with a thoughtful approach to musicality. I constantly strive to help students understand the different roles of the cello in musical settings and the incredible versatility of the instrument. I am passionate about teaching and performing alike and am an active cellist throughout the New York City area, recently having completed my masters degree at Manhattan School of Music.

About Jacob
I recently completed my masters in cello performance at Manhattan School of Music. I teach privately throughout the tri-state area and I am also a teacher with the Harmony Program where I teach in larger classroom settings throughout the boroughs. This past February I was a guest artist and teacher at the VerArte String Academy in Arequipa, Peru. I have attended numerous music festivals such as Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, CA, the Banff Centre in Canada and most recently I was a fellow at the Alba Music Festival in Alba, Italy. I am also passionate about orchestral and chamber music.

As a teacher, I hope to give students a strong technical foundation on the cello while also helping them to understand and appreciate the musical versatility of the instrument. I believe it is extremely important to combine technical and mu
sical skills from the earliest musical studies. I am enthusiastic about teaching students of all ages and varying musical goals.

In my lessons, I plan to develop a connection to my students, allow for room to grow and improve as cellists, and to elicit proper playing/performing techniques. Lessons are individualized for every student, as students aren't all equal.

About Carly
Hello, my name is Carly. I'm currently pursuing a bachelor's degree in music education at the University of Louisville. Throughout the past couple of semesters I've been learning many different methods for teaching, privately and publicly. I have a student of my own, and would love to expand my studio and take in more cellists. I've been playing cello about 10 years and love to share my passion with others. The most effective way of learning about anything is by actually doing it!

I advocate for not only technical advancement but also unique musical imagination.

My cello lessons are complimented with with basic theory and ear-training exercises, and can encompass genres such as jazz, rock, and pop in addition to classical.
