Private Cello Teacher

I have over 6 years of experience teaching private lessons in addition to teaching seminars on songwriting and music business at Infinity Visual and Performing Arts and SUNY JCC.

I teach both online and in-person lessons at my studio in Nashville and offer 30 and 60 minute lessons.

I have played over 1,000 shows, both solo and as an auxiliary musician for other touring acts. I performed on over 30 albums and have composed for radio, television, and internet video series, including sharing the stage with members of the 10,000 Maniacs. I've been featured in The New York Times, on the CBS Evening News, and on NPR.

While each student is different, I do generally start everyone on either Suzuki or the Essential Elements books.

As one of my old teachers said, “I'm not teaching you how to play cello, I'm teaching you how to teach yourself how to play cello.” This is something I strive for. Students will not only learn technical skills( how to play their instrument, read ...

In my lessons, I plan to develop a connection to my students, allow for room to grow and improve as cellists, and to elicit proper playing/performing techniques. Lessons are individualized for every student, as students aren't all equal.

Online Cello Teacher

I love teaching and I have been doing it for about 6 years now. I love working with beginners, and I find myself especially good with children that are just getting to know music. Although I am open to work with any age-group.
As your teacher, we will work together to make you the most integral musician you can be. Every hand is different, so we will make sure we adjust to what works best for you and your skills.
I will share tips on how to practice and will follow up with your schedule and the amount of time you are putting towards your cello-life.
We will not only learn about cello in lessons, but also music theory (as I believe it is necessary for one to be able to not only make music, but also "talk" music.).
Since I am still a student, I am always looking for ways to make practicing more productive but also fulfilling so that is what we will do together as well.
I look forward to taking you from whatever level you may be at right now, to the most ideal performance/practice ...

"Michael is great

Having a student like me, who's schedule is constantly shifting last minute, is no easy feat, but Mike manages it flawlessly.

As a beginner cello student but with some musical background, Michael has been great at adjusting lessons to my particular needs and helping me get on my way to being a better musician.

He's always incredibly patient - which with an easily distracted student as myself - is beyond commendable. He's easy going and professional in his teaching, and I would recommend him to any aspiring cellists, whatever their age or level."

"Victor has been a knowledgeable, patient and respectful instructor. I started the cello in mid-life and that has been humbling. Victor guided my first lessons at his Iowa studio. We have continued with on-line lessons now that he is studying in Boston. He helps me develop efficient practice habits since time is a precious commodity. He encourages healthy posture and technique so that I can enjoy playing for many years to come."

She is a great teacher. Relaxing environment and pushes me to be the best I can for my level. I love that she is flexible. I do equestrian show jumping and ride 5 days a week and teach 3 days a week and work full time and sometimes the shows may not work for my lesson schedule but she always works with me. holds annual recitals for studio and Christmas. I think anyone any age who wants to learn and can make it to her will love her and enjoy her....She also lets me play with my Black Cello =)"

"A fantastic cellist with a thirst for continually pushing her own musical knowledge and limits.

Johanna has been a great contributor to many orchestras I have conducted. She continuously seeks to further her knowledge to help make the music come to live and freely shares this knowledge with others around her. She continuously strives to find a perfect balance between technical acuity and musical phrasing/interpretation in her playing. I cannot overemphasize the benefit of her skill in this area, as it results in very technically competent musicians, who are also expressive!

She is friendly, encourages other struggling musicians. She always shows up to rehearsals/concerts early, with a smiling, can do demeanor, and a willingness to help wherever there might be a need.

She is professional and personable, she is always my first recommendation to parents and students looking for 'the right' music teacher."

"Nathan was my private instructor for 5 years and I learned so much from him! We would work on both lesson books and pieces I was playing in my schools orchestra, pit orchestra, and more groups, he would always push me to do better and guide me towards instructing others in the groups I played in as well. He doesn’t just say what parts you need to improve on, he asks questions so you can learn to identify them yourself, and always makes you reflect on the positive parts of your playing. He is very kind and cared about me as a person, always curious about what I was doing in school or just in general.

He is a wonderful instructor and amazing person, I wish the best for him in New York! 💕"

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 …
