She is an amazing teacher and you should have her as your instructor she taught me all I know about classical piano so I thank her for that.

I had a great first lesson with Jessica. The lesson took place in a comfortable studio in her house. We discussed my goals and then reviewed where I am currently. She paid carefully attention to my body position with the bow and had several great suggestions on exercises to improve it. I'm already looking forward to the next lesson.

Great first lesson. Learned new methods to improve bowing. Looking forward to the next lesson

I am coming to the cello as a brand new beginner. I have play around with some fretted instruments, ukulele, banjo, etc. But Irina was super at getting me relaxed, focused on basics and encouraging me with small, but important mechanics and technical details. I have taken other music lessons like sax, so could compare. I totally enjoyed the start of my cello training.
Oh, btw, I'm retired and over 65!!!

In my lessons, my primary focus is helping students learn cello at their own pace, and developing their love and appreciation for music! Cello can be challenging, but anyone can learn with the right guidance! I have a conservatory training, and years of experience teaching people of all ages how to play. Students will learn technique, music reading, scales and arpeggios, and basic music theory in a comfortable and encouraging environment!

I so appreciated my first Lesson with Nick! We had planned to meet in person, but because of the current quarantine had to have class online - and it was wonderful! He was encouraging and clear and was able to diagnose some of my bad habits and give me ways to get past them. He also generously shared resources and repertoire. I'm much looking forward to continuing with him - just what I needed both musically and to keep my spirits up!

Great first lessons. I have 2 boys, each learning a different instrument (violin & guitar), and Nick was great with them. Looking forward to the future lessons.

I live for helping others find their fullest musical potential. Daughter to a teach and a truck driver, my parents couldn't afford lessons when I was in school. I want to stress that I want those students who are being denied affordable private lessons. You are just as capable of greatness as kids paying out the nose for lessons.

I strongly believe EVERYONE is capable of learning an instrument. We all learn in different ways. Perhaps you tried learning once before and it didn't work out? Don't let that discourage you! You just need the right teaching method.

Cello has been my passion since I started playing in 1994 in NJ. My love for teaching bloomed when my high school music department gave me two hours to teach middle school beginning strings (Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass) every school day, and I have been hooked since! All South Jersey Orchestra several years, and attended West Chester University of PA on scholarship, where I basked in one of the best music education programs in ...

About Bonnie

I want YOU to discover the music that's always been inside of you. That nagging voice in the back of your head telling you that you don't have a musical bone in your body is WRONG. Everyone is capable of learning an instrument. It's just a matter of finding the right fit in instrument and teacher.

Great first lesson! Bonnie offered great beginning tips and encouraging complements. The first lesson book looks very appropriate for my skill level. We did have some connection issues which Bonnie handled very well.
I am energized to practice and work toward my next lesson.

Bonnie is a great cellist and was always a pleasure to work with!

I am a second year cello performance major at the University of Georgia and have been playing the cello for over ten years. I have experience performing and practicing in a variety of ensembles and genres (i.e. orchestras, chamber ensembles, jazz, rock/jam bands, bluegrass, pop). I plan to incorporate music theory and ear training into lessons to help my students become more familiar with their instruments and repertoire. I want to encourage innovation and creativity in each of my students so that they can feel comfortable approaching any musical opportunity.

"Joey has been a great cello teacher. I like the fact that his experience covers a broad range of music. When I want to make an arrangement of a heavy metal song, or I need to learn the nuance of baroque performance, he's there.
He's a working musician so his schedule is somewhat variable, but he is good about communicating and always comes when he says he will. He's personable and enthusiastic."

"I have started cello lessons back in June. Susanna is someone who will go at your pace, & is very patient with you. I grew up learning how to read music, so I was able to get through the first book pretty quickly. She has helped me set a new goal so that when I become unmotivated to practice, I can remember what my main goal is. I have an early lesson, so I tend to be a little sassy... She does amazingly with handling my sass & dishing it right back out at me. She makes the difficult lessons more fun, & enjoyable. I would reach out to her if you are looking for a teacher who is flexible, patient, & a joy to learn from."

"Ellen is wonderful. She's been playing cello for over a decade and received her degree from Berklee College of Music. Knowing that, I anticipated that she would be somewhat intimidating in our lesson together, but she was the exact opposite-- she was so down to earth, and she was very encouraging when I felt like I was not getting the hang of things in time. She's also very receptive to your needs/desires. We just barely crossed paths while she was in town, and I was merely hoping to get a feel for the instrument, so we had a very playful (but informative!) experience. I know that she also has a wealth of formal training, so no matter what your pace--she's your girl. She also has a cool band of her own, which you should check out!"

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 …
