View Full Profile

I'm an experienced and dedicated cellist, having played with Orchestras and Chamber groups throughout my state. My lessons are focused on relaxation, and am as laid back or strict as the student needs. Whether you're a beginner or advanced, shooting to be a church player or a pro, I have taught students for that and am the teacher for you.

About Nicholas
Nicholas is a professional cellist that has studied since the age of 9. He has now been teaching the cello, viola, and violin for the past seven years for students of all ages, beginner to pre-college level.

Throughout Nicholas’s career, he has been an active member of Honors Orchestras, Youth Symphonies, Chamber ensembles, Opera Symphonies, and his university’s symphony. His music consists of mostly a classical nature with some contemporary and popular music ensembles.

Nicholas trained for three years in college under the renowned cellist Martha Gerschefski, whose accomplishments are too many to list. He also trained under Christopher Rex, the principal cellist of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Nicholas now holds a Bachelor’s degree in Music Performance at Georgia State University.

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!

My primary instrument is french horn but I have been playing cello for 5 years. I have played in various groups in high school and at Grand Valley State University. The instrument is a lot of fun to learn.

About Katie
I love to inspire students to practice, that is where the real magic happens. I love to see them not only set goals for themselves but reach them. I am willing to do whatever it takes to see them succeed. I love working with people and encouraging them. I have been a horn player since August 2007. I am studying french horn at Grand Valley State University but am also efficient in euphonium, piano, music theory, aural (reading rhythms and reciting them aloud), and trumpet. I have been in marching band for 6 years on mellophone so I can also help with teaching marching techniques and mellophone playing since it is very different from french horn.

Sevierville, TN
View Full Profile

Over 10 years of teaching experience which includes private lessons, ensemble coaching and preparing students for performances. My lessons involve musical creative writing, memorization of favorite tunes, reading and music theory study.
I love helping students reach their goals and I've acquired a ton of tricks of the trade that makes playing music a lot easier.

Ages 8 through 100.
Beginner to advanced.
Genres: Classical, Gypsy, Rock, Pop, Folk, Celtic, and Bluegrass. Whatever you need.

I am a professional violinist, violist and cellist. I've served as principal 2nd violinist with the Tampa Bay Symphony for 8 years. I've also played in numerous other groups like the St. Petersburg Opera, Space Coast Pops Orchestra, Bach Festival Orchestra and String Quartets for Weddings.

I am a professional violinist, violist and cellist. I've served as principal 2nd violinist with the Tampa Bay Symphony for 8 years. I've also played in numerous other groups like the St. Petersburg Opera, Space Coast Pops Orchestra, Bach Festival Orchestra and String Quartets for Weddings.

As a child, I wanted to be like Mozart and was inspired by cartoon and film music. So, I started composing at the age of 8.
My high-school orchestra performed and recorded two of my works.
I went on to Rollins College in Winter Park, FL in 2000 and earned a B.A. in Music Performance (viola). After graduation, I managed a violin shop for a few years and learned about string repairs and sales. I took some Suzuki teacher training in 2008 in NC and then taught at Sam Ash Music Superstore in FL for 9 years
where I wrote over 20 pop rock arrangements for st
ring quartet.
My passion comes from darker sounds but I also enjoy light and dance-able sounds as well. I continue to practice everyday because there is always something to improve upon. I'm currently doing deeper study into the Bluegrass genre because it is fairly new territory for me. It's always exciting to learn new tricks!

Dawn is an amazing performer, theorist, composer, and teacher. It is more than obvious how much she cares about her students and their progress, and that they are taken down the proper path with solid foundations. In addition to outstanding instruction on string technique, Dawn provides a level of theoretical insight that I regularly use to blow the mind of my piano teacher. Having taken music lessons from over 10 instructors for over 20 years, none have taught me as much about what makes 'music' truly music as Dawn has.

I started taking violin lessons at the age of 52, and I didn't know a single thing about the violin or about reading music. I just wanted to play a violin! Dawn taught me both of these things in a patient calm way. Now I can pick out songs to play and figure them out on my own! I learned a whole new language! I am forever grateful to Dawn for being my mentor and guide during these past five years!
