Cello:
A bowed or plucked string instrument with four strings tuned in perfect fifths. The strings from low to high are generally tuned to C2, G2, D3 and A3, an octave lower than the viola. It is a member of the violin family of musical instruments, which also includes the violin and viola and the double bass. The cello is used as a solo musical instrument, as well as in chamber music ensembles (e.g., string quartet), string orchestras, as a member of the string section of symphony orchestras, and some types of rock bands. It is the second-largest and second lowest (in pitch) bowed string instrument in the modern symphony orchestra, the double bass being the largest and having the lowest (deepest) pitch. My lessons always start out with the basics! We start out by learning notes by plucking the strings and then the bow is soon incorporated. The goal is to eventually learn all the notes on the fretboard and also learning how to read and play chords. As the student progresses ...

I thought I wanted to take viola lessons. Then I read her website and I realized that she might be able to help me get my voice back! I thought there was no hope ever. She has been extremely generous with her time, and I haven't seen her yet, but I'm not buying the viola I was planning on buying. I play cello, and piano still, but I am going to see if she can help me with my voice. She sounds incredible. I never dreamed that I could even have HOPE like this!

Private Cello Teacher

While I am still a student myself learning at the college level, I have a lot to offer to beginner and intermediate players looking to better their technique, reading abilities, posture, tone, and or overall musical knowledge. I've been playing for almost 18 years now, and through my own studies, I've learned that it's important to have a teacher that truly believes in you and wants to see you succeed. I want to be that for younger students just starting out or trying to find their way in music.

About Josh

Hi my name is Joshua Leak. I'm a 21 year old cellist from Chicago, IL. I've been studying cello for almost 18 years! When I started, I was heavily into classical, but I loved all the artistic ideas that contemporary music had to offer, so I figured out a way to fuse my love for both into something

Private Cello Teacher

My lessons are intended to actively guide each in their study of cello by developing the critical thinking necessary to read and perform classical music and to develop an understanding of theory and fundamental technique.

My cello studio is also a place of learning and cultural engagement. Classical music, and especially playing a string instrument, yields innumerable rewards in terms of personal, psychological, and intellectual development. My lessons are unique in that I go to the core of matters of technique and musicality, not shying away from questions on "how xxxx works" or "why should it sound xxxx way," etc.

I am a caring and reasonable teacher with a record of results-driven progress and improvement on cello. Teaching music, and opening up this long, rich, historical tradition to students is something that I enjoy sharing.

We have had two lessons for my daughter who has been playing cello for 5 years. Amy is encouraging and gives her plenty of feedback to help her improve her playing.
Ellie M.
Wonderful first lesson! Amy was kind and welcoming.
Roni
We just finished our 25th months with Miss Amy as our teacher and are still so very happy to have her! She is the BEST teacher we know! Miss Amy is extremely skilled and very qualified. But the best part of having Miss Amy as a teacher is her endless patience and her sweet ability to get the very best from her students - and it all seems so effortless. We have always taken lessons on line with Miss Amy and even though we wondered at first if we could make it work it has been just perfect! Miss Amy has THE best way of helping our learners get out of lessons what they need and still keep working toward playing better a fun experience. She seems to know when a song may have become a labor rather than a love and just works around those perfectly. Miss Amy, we love you so much. You have truly changed our family. Our sons are complimented on their ability all the time and we get asked tons who our teacher is. We are always proud to tell any one who asks that Miss Amy in New York is our teacher! Thank you, Miss Amy!

I started taking fiddle lessons with Daniel having basically zero experience with the instrument, and in just a handful of weeks, I can't believe how much I've learned! Daniel really excels at tailoring his teaching to my individual needs, interests, and pace of learning. Each week I leave feeling challenged and motivated, but never frustrated. I'm having a great time, and always look forward to my next lesson.
Michelle B.
Daniel is so patient and easy to work with ~ he makes learning the cello seem so easy and natural and has so many practical ways of explaining an instrument I have no prior knowledge of. I had never played a stringed instrument but always loved the cello, so I was a bit nervous to begin. His gentle nature and patience have made me even more enthusiastic to learn. I have been loving each lesson and look forward to the next each time I leave! I'm looking forward to next week already! :-)
Jeff
Super friendly guy, learned a lot at my first lesson and looking forward to my next lesson with him.

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 …
