Robert was nervous for his first lesson. Annie’s teaching style set him at ease very quickly. She was clear and concise with her instructions. Very hands on as needed: adjustment of violin, bow , hand and arm placement,etc. I, as Robert’s parent, was very impressed with Annie.

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.
Les
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.

I believe that every student has his/her own need because we are all unique as human beings, every one of us has their stronger and weaker skills and my job as a teacher is to find the best tool to pass to the given student.

I am strict but fun, whichever amount the student needs more.

I use the Suzuki books because the songs (and later pieces) in are very good, popular, fun, and evenly progressive.

Achievements depend also on the student and the amount of practicing done at home. I as a teacher can only do that much in passing my knowledge and spur the student own. Practicing at home is very, very important.

Online Cello Teacher

Although I mainly sing now, I was originally a violinist and played all through college in professional orchestras, quartets and even as a soloist.

As a professional Music Educator, I have run String Programs in various International Schools among many other instrumental ensembles. I've conducted student orchestras & built many programs from scratch. Please see the links in my profile of the beginner orchestras as well as my playing!

Although I do not play professionally anymore, I still play very well, and am a perfect teacher for a beginner and intermediate student. I know how to get students started quickly and with confidence. Choose me to jump start yourself or your child.

I think my biggest strength as a strings teacher is helping this tedious time as a beginning violinist be fun and useful. My students really enjoy their lessons. I also have a lot of experience online and anticipate all of the normal issues (tuning, instrument care, etc;)

I've trained a lot of ...

As an adult with lots of piano experience but limited violin experience, Mary was able from the very first lesson to quickly determine my skill level and tailor instruction appropriately. I am looking forward to more lessons and am confident that under her guidance and with diligent practice, I will steadily improve.

Within only the first few lessons, I have already learned so much! Mary exceeded any expectations I had. She is incredibly knowledgeable, and has wonderful material suggestions.

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!

He is an awesome tutor, and I learn a lot from this lesson. Unlike my previous tutor, he uses his cello to demonstrate things. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to improve at playing the cello.

"I'm very grateful to have found a teacher as generous as Chris. Since reviewing is so important in our culture anymore, I always like to get a good sampling before constructing a review. Chris shows consistently that he listens to his students, offers positive critique, and molds his approach to meet the student where they are. Chris makes it easy, fun and relaxing to learn. It isn't hard to gather that Chris is a professional and experienced teacher. I am a very beginner, adult student, and I can appreciate how Chris can teach a spectrum of students at different skill and experience levels. Thanks to Chris for making my hobby to learn an instrument such a dream!"

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 …
