Had an excellent 1st lesson. Thank you.

I came to the lesson not knowing what is going to happen and a bit apprehensive. Katie made me feel very comfortable. I was able to learn how to use my breathing better in the short 30 minutes we met. I am looking forward to more lessons.

Private Cello Teacher

I have been playing the cello for 20 years and started teaching in 2010. I use a hybrid Suzuki method, that introduces learning music a little earlier. For more advanced cellists, we concentrate on advanced methods and etudes to refine the craft.

Excellent first lesson! Douglas was very patient, he corrected my daughter hand positions and show her the proper way to play the cello. He explained things clearly and made the lesson fun!
Lourdes
Doug is great - he's patient, supportive, positive, and provides enough structure to make me feel like I'm progressing while understanding the challenges of an adult student's schedule.
Jacob
Doug was on time (early, in fact!), super helpful, pointed out some minor tweaks that make a huge difference to my playing (things that I never learned in my previous cello lessons) and has been really accommodating. He's lent me some of his books and has offered to transcribe some songs I want to work on! Thanks!

Together we will learn the beginning essentials to playing the cello and reading cello music. I focus on good technique from the beginning so a student should expect to spend a good amount of time in lessons on technique exercises and posture checks. We will also learn music based on the student's experience.

We’ve been lucky to have Mary Alice work with our 13 year old daughter for the past 6 months. Mary Alice chooses songs that my daughter loves and is eager to master. Subjects that can be dry become alive and engaging when taught in this context. Mary Alice has an amazing rapport with kids of all ages. Mary Alice makes musical education so fun that my daughter puts a lot of work into her lessons because she wants to, not because I make her. We couldn’t dream of a better teacher.
Sammy
I’ve been taking Mary Alice’s classes for a couple of months now and my singing has improved a lot including intonation, rhythm, and tone. Mary Alice is very patient and caring, she is the best music teacher I have ever worked with. All the homework is fun and takes my interests into account. When Mary Alice found out I play ukulele, she incorporated it into our lessons so that I could accompany my singing. Even though the classes are remote, Mary Alice finds a way to make them interesting and productive.

I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

Online Cello Teacher

My focus as a teacher is to coach my students to their best performance. As they play, I encourage them to listen to their sound and then use what they hear to shape their growth. I then add to their thoughts, pointing out the positive aspects of their performance and giving them directions for how to improve.

About Joshua

I have been passionate about classical music my entire life. In college, I played in the university orchestra, formed a string quartet, and produced a daily radio show about music. Since I love music history and theory, I actually have two Master’s degrees, one in cello and the other in musicology.

"I took up the cello in my late 20's and am finally back taking lessons after a few years, so I had developed a lot of bad playing habits. Jessica really helped to deconstruct my technique and is helping me rebuild a stronger foundation on which to perform. She is also dependable regarding emailing and texting when needed. I would definitely recommend her!"

"I first began studying with Arlette when I was a young girl who knew nothing about reading music. She was an amazing teacher for me as a young girl, and continued to be as I grew up. Arlette has taught me and helped me hone my technique and musicality, from the beginning before I could hold a bow through the years and improvements.

"My daughter (8th grade) has been learning cello for two years at school. However, since schools have closed, she has shown little to no interest in playing. We decided to book Dora and have been amazed at her impact! Dora is not only a talented musician in her own right but has the patience and skills to inspire the love of music on to her students. My daughter now looks forward to her lessons each week and is not only practicing her cello regularly but has even asked me to book more lessons with Dora. I would thoroughly recommend Dora to anyone wanting music lessons!"

"The first lesson was excellent. I completed my first private cello lesson since playing about 44 years ago. It was wonderful. The teacher is very organized and very nice. I thought maybe the lesson would be a lesson of remembering what I had forgotten from so long ago, but I actually learned new things. I'm excited to attend the next lesson."

"I took 10 lessons with a different teach last summer and ended my package not being able to read sheet music or find my finger placement on the strings without second thought.

I have had just 3 lessons with Ellen thus far, and am reading sheet music like a wiz and gaining more and more confidence each lesson with my finger placement and now bowing.

Ellen has a wonderful system of teaching that truly makes everything she exposes you to stick, and has been getting me very excited to continue on knowing that I am in good hands and will progress quickly because of it. I will most definitely continue to see Ellen."

What Does it Take to Become a Professional Cello Player?

Pursuing a career in music is a risky decision, because by the nature of the industry few artists can “make it big.” Most artists aren’t pop stars, or even full-time career musicians, and all musicians also teach to remedy this. There are many paths to becoming a professional cello player, and depending on where you start it might be easy or hard to earn a reputation and start making money. I followed an academic path, studying classical music at university and then continuing my research …
