Private Cello Teacher

I have a degree in music with a teaching certificate. I have been teaching cello privately for 10 years. Depending on the age of the child we will start with either Essential Elements or Suzuki cello book one. They will start with proper positioning and plucking. Once they have 8 notes down, we start bowing. As we progress, we will be doing scales, and etudes.

Ms Chris was great my daughter really enjoyed her first lesson. Ms Chris was easy to work with and made my daughter comfortable that she felt free to ask questions and make mistakes without worry. My daughter is looking forward to the next lesson.

If you’re looking for a dedicated, knowledgeable and patient strings teacher, you will love Mrs. Heins. Both of my sons have been taking lessons from Mrs. Heins for several years (one for viola and one for cello). They have learned so much under her instruction, such as earning All-County and All-State honors. They also practice their live performance skills twice a year during informal musical concerts. Mrs. Heins also offers participation in the Royal Conservatory Music Development program, which can earn your child credit for college. She is a gem and should you choose her, you won’t be disappointed.

Private Cello Teacher

As a student of mine you can expect to improve your playing skills week to week. I can teach from the very first lesson on. Students will learn techniques to improve their playing and will play fun music. If you are interested in learning improvisation, I can help with that, too. I enjoy teaching violin, viola and cello.
I am most passionate about teaching students to become independent, critical thinking musicians who will be able to rely on their own knowledge to learn new music as they go along. I stress music reading, ear training, and strong fundamentals in playing. I am very encouraging, love spreading my love of music.

About Melissa

I began playing violin in elementary school, and immediately knew this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. My first words as a baby were lyrics because I sang before I spoke. I played violin until 11th grade when I fell in love with the sound of the viola. I studied music performance

I’m a former student of Melissa’s. She is very patient and I learned very quickly under her direction. I’m happy to see her teaching again. I’m anxious to continue learning the cello with Melissa.

Hello, my daughter has been taking piano lessons from Jamie since she was 7. She is now 10. Under Jamie’s tutelage, my daughter has gone from a shy little girl playing plunk plunk plunk to a beaming with enthusiasm pianist playing Queen’s Bahamian Rhapsody at the yearly piano recital. For four weeks, Jamie and my daughter tore through 4 sections of the Rhapsody that Jamie had modified for her. It was amazing to see the dedication of Jamie and the interest and fun in my daughter. At the recital she was fantastic and what a smile. Jamie is a very accomplished artist and piano teacher, she focuses my daughter on good piano techniques while having fun. For example, while Jamie taught my daughter to play songs she also focused my daughter to read music rather than memorize the music, My daughter was able to transform this training into playing other musical instruments. At eight she took up the flute and quickly moved into advanced band. While I focused on the accomplishments of my daughter as any proud parent would do, the foundation of her success began with the training she received from Jamie. Jamie has taught my daughter for three years and we are going to keep coming – until my daughter grows up and leaves for college.
Mieke
Jamie is compassionate, erudite, & challenges you. She knows how to push you, but, simultaneously, always has your back. I look forward to my lesson every week.
Shawna
My daughter really enjoys having Jamie as her teacher! Since she was 6 she has gained confidence and appreciation for the guitar. Jamie is patient and has been terrific with guidance and keeping her interested through the lessons. We wouldn’t want anyone else!

"Mrs. Strange is the best teacher I have ever had. She is always well prepared going into every lesson. The lessons are clear, concise, and constructive. She does her best to adjust her teaching style to you for the best progress possible. Mrs. Strange gets to know you and cares for every student equally. She does not view you as another student because every student is important to her. You can go to her for any problems you are having with technique, tone quality, sound projection, or any other problem you may have as a student and she will work through the problems with you until you feel comfortable enough to move on to other troubles you are having. Every lesson with Mrs. Strange has a reason, you will never waste time or money with her as a teacher because she can help you achieve new heights as a musician and then surpass them. She taught me everything I needed to know in order to make it into a university for music performance and she still helps me to this day when I am struggling. I recommend her as a teacher to anyone who wants to become a better musician."

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 …
