I've been teaching beginner to intermediate cello for 1 year. I played cello for 2 years in High School orchestra.

About Olivia
I love to create. The way I'm most comfortable creating is through writing; whether it's a song, a short story, a poem or a script. Writing has always been the bass line in my life; the heartbeat.

Music and film are both passions of mine. I graduated from Berklee College of Music where I studied Songwriting and Music Therapy. I was pushed to my absolute limits lyrically and musically within these majors, and I am so grateful for it now that I'm on my own creative journey.

I have a great deal of experience, but I am also still learning. I think it is very important as a teacher to always be learning, especially through their students. Teaching these lessons is, of course, about progress and advancement - but also about enjoyment, confidence building and positive encouragement.

Private lessons for beginning cello. Also couching school orchestra cello students reading music, understanding rhythms, developing beautiful tone. Possibility to join the Music Academy string orchestra!

About Elisa
Violin Teacher's Certificate - Sibelius Academy, Finland
Suzuki Teacher Training - Marylhurst University, OR

Classical and Suzuki options - starting Suzuki students as early as 3 yrs old. Teaching Suzuki Books 1-11.
Beginners, intermediate and advanced levels
I am using classical method books including Kayser, Wohlfart, Kreutzer, Mazas, Dont and Paganini Caprices with students looking for more rigorous studies and more advanced skills.
Keeping music and technique in balance - Learn how to enjoy performing - Find your own highest potential - Fall in love with music

*** Lesson Details ***
I am friendly and like to inspire my students to find their own best potential. Suitable challenges are fun and needed to keep the personal progress going on. "No suffering in my studio!" means that the process of learning needs to be enjoyabl
e but at the same time I am asking the students to give their best effort. Setting frequent goals in form of group classes and recitals keeps us in full sail and teach us to enjoy the act of playing both alone and in front of friendly audience.
I teach both classical and Suzuki methods. I like to keep my students musically well fed and encourage exploring music reading and music theory next to practical skills. I stir my students toward high standard personal level in their studies, an ingredient from Finnish cultural climate.

*** Specialties ***
Suzuki method and classical method, fiddling, beginning jazz, improvising

I have taught myself a couple of instruments but decided I wanted an instructor to learn cello. I've learned SO MUCH from Elisa, she's helped me understand parts of music that had never "clicked" with me despite 6 years of band in middle and high school.

I highly recommend Elisa!

I just completed my first lesson with Elisa. I felt so good at the end of the lesson. As an adult learner, I am often uncomfortable with my beginner skill levels and end up feeling embarrassed and apologetic when working with a teacher (silly I know). But she did not make me feel this way at all.

She quickly assessed where I was with my playing and identified quick and easy technical practices to enhance my technique as well as took in my own personal goals. I feel super motivated to practice and look forward to my next lesson with her. I'm so glad I found her!

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.

I focus on teaching students the overall musical ideas as well as specific necessary skills needed to portray the musical ideas. Eat Training, music theory and analyzes are also a subject of my discussions with the students, since it is necessary to understand the meaning of the piece and the idea of the composer. Combining Russian, American and French schools of music learnings, I try to provide students with the most well-rounded musical education.

Mark is one of the finest musicians I have ever had the pleasure to work with. He has an incredibly rare ability to explain the essence of musical ideas in a way that dramatically changes and improves his students' playing and musicianship. His understanding of music is on the highest of levels. He is an amazing teacher, player, and mentor--I could not recommend him more highly.

Mark is a wonderful teacher, who reads the student instantly, and quickly adopts his strategies in order to reach the highest results together with the student. Most importantly, he taught me how to practice and perfect my playing by myself, which is very useful, considering my travel schedule. I highly recomend him for students of all ages.

As someone who has four degrees in cello performance and has taught for more than fifteen years, I know the value of having a good teacher. My mission: become obsolete! Most of your cello playing will be on your own, so I aim to equip you with the confidence and know-how to become an effective practicer and player. This takes time and dedication, but it's enormously fun and rewarding. I love to teach all ages, abilities, and ambitions, customizing my approach to best serve YOU. I perform professionally as a soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral cellist, playing all sorts of styles and genres. Begin or continue your cello journey today!

My goal is to inspire my students to perform at their best by learning to problem solve. I have extensive performing experience with musicians ranging from the Juilliard Quartet to Jon Batiste and am happy to coach my students on any style of music. One of my specialties is audition preparation; you can trust me to get you ready for your next NYSSMA or school audition.

About Timothy

I have performed across the globe, in tours through China, Australia, Italy, and Mexico. Here are some musicians I have collaborated with

I received my bachelor's degree in cello performance and music education as a scholarship student at Rutgers University, where I studied with Jonathan Spitz.

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. I taught 5th grade Orchestra Club in the Fort Zumwalt School District and was a substitute teacher for Orchestra classes for 3 years. I have been teaching private lessons for 10 years.

For the past 25 years, I have been teaching cello, guitar, music theory, and I worked as a performer, arranger, studio music producer, and soundtrack composer. I was a cellist in the Brazilian National Symphony Orchestra for 18 years, and in other projects I have played a wide range of styles, spanning Brazilian music, Brazilian jazz, electronic music, classical music, opera, and accompaniment for classical ballet and contemporary dance.
I believe that students from diverse backgrounds can equally learn the traditional subjects of music study, like music theory, music history, composition, and instrument performance. My aim is expanding the musical universe of the students, by presenting them to styles and genres outside their usual experience. Also, I want to introduce them to the creative process in various forms of art and technology. Additionally to instrument performance, I also can teach them to record and produce their music using computers, tablets or cell phones.

About Luciano
I have a Masters in Music Composition from Louisiana State University School of Music, as well as a Post-Baccalaureate in Music Composition for Cinema and TV, and a Bachelor in Cello Performance from the Conservatorio Brasileiro de Musica. Furthermore, I have been a music teacher and a soundtrack composer for movies and plays in my hometown of Rio de Janeiro. Performing and teaching music has been my dream since I was young. In 1995 I started my Bachelor degree at the University of Rio de Janeiro, my major was Cello and my minor was Classic and Brazilian Guitar. In 1998 I left school to join the National Symphonic Orchestra, and I played as a cellist in this institution until 2016. Studying at the university and working as a cellist with the Orchestra has provided me with a solid knowledge of music, but I have always kept an open mind for
new sounds, no matter the genre, and have played as a cellist in works of many different styles. Additionally, I began focusing on music performance by manipulating different styles and genres. To further expand my knowledge of technology in music, I have studied recording and production processes. Another important concept that influenced me was the experience of performing in free jazz sessions and improvising accompanying silent films in Europe.
