All cello lessons are taught as private, one-on-one music instruction in music studio. Cello lessons are tailored to each student by taking their goals, experience, and learning pace into consideration.

For beginner students, lessons include fundamentals – such as posture, instrument position, bow and left hand technique, and music reading/sight reading as well as fun musical learning games

For Intermediate students, lessons focus on performing repertoire from all musical periods. More advanced bow and left hand techniques such as spiccato, shifting, and vibrato will be covered, as well as advanced note reading, listening, and music theory.

I've taught cello for the last 12 years, and try to infuse the same enthusiasm into my students as I experienced in my journey to where I am today. I use both the Suzuki method books and the Applebaum String Builder books to start with beginners, depending on level and experience, with an emphasis on music reading. After that, the student's progress will dictate the best route to follow.

About Benjamin
In my years of teaching, I have developed an individual approach with each student, young or old, according to different needs and learning styles. I believe it is never too early or too late to begin learning, and it is my hope that music making through this instrument will be as enjoyable and passionate an experience for you as it has been for me. Whether you are looking on behalf of your son or daughter, looking to take on a new challenge later in life, or anything in between, I look forward to hearing why you want to learn to play the cello! (House calls available too!)

I've included my bio below, for those who may be interested.

Cellist Benjamin L. made his solo debut in 1999 at the Merryall Center for the Arts, where critic for the Danbury News Times, Frank Merkling, called him “remarkably gifted”, with “a charming, warm tone”
. He has performed in various venues in the Tri-State area, including concerto performances with the Hartford Symphony, Farmington Valley Symphony and Musica Dolce Ensemble, and solo and chamber performances in Asia and Europe. He is an avid chamber musician, having performed with the Enao Ensemble in chamber concerts to benefit the charity, the Bishop’s Fund for Children, from 2000-2010, was the cellist and founding member of the Lorelei Piano Trio and has been a member of several other chamber music ensembles. As a free-lance cellist, he has performed with many diverse ensembles, accompanying the musical, “Time Between Us” in the New York Musical Theater Festival, appearing with the band, The Left Banke, playing with Ensemble 212 and Shattered Glass. In addition to performing, he is on the faculty of the Zen Music School, Port Jefferson Music Academy and coaches chamber music for Jeunes Virtuoses de New York, as well as teaching privately. He is also the artistic director of Concerts on the Slope, a chamber music series in Park Slope, Brooklyn, and the Artist-in-Residence for Music at Trinity of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in the Bronx.

Mr. L. has performed at several summer music festivals including the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, Castleman’s Quartet Program, Music at Menlo and Pacific Music Festival, and has won top prizes in several competitions. His chamber music mentors have included members of the Emerson, Tokyo, American and Keller String Quartets, as well as Robert Mann, Nicholas Mann, Peter Frankl, Andre Michel Schub, and Daniel Epstein, Sylvia Rosenberg and several others. He has taken master classes with Keith Robinson and Colin Carr, and past teachers include Eric Dahlin, David Finckel, Julia Lichten and Clive Greensmith, as well as lessons with Marta Casals Istomin and Bonnie Hampton.

As an orchestral musician he has performed with the City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong, the Empire State Sinfonia, the Pacific Music Festival Orchestra, the Salome Chamber Orchestra in New York City, and the Farmington Valley Symphony, as well as the Manhattan School of Music orchestras. Mr. L. holds Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from Manhattan School of Music, where he was the recipient of the Hans and Klara Bauer Scholarship and the 2011 Pablo Casals Award.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my students to have an instrument, method books (after I recommend one), a suitable arm less chair and music stand. I can travel anywhere public transportation can take me. (NYC or nearby New Jersey)

*** Specialties ***
I am familiar with, though not trained or certified in, Suzuki method, but I teach traditionally, often using the Suzuki and String Builder books, with an emphasis on reading music.

Perfect first session. Michael adapted to Rory's deep understanding of music theory but total lack of knowledge of the bass. He was thoughtful, patient, and adaptive introducing the bass and providing practice suggestions to Rory. I recommend Michael in the highest terms as an instructor for beginners and knowing his vast education and experience in the bass I must assume this travels though the entire range of students - beginner to advanced. We look forward to the next lesson.

Aaron teaches piano to my 8 year old daughter, Abby. She is shy but loves piano and she very much looks forward to his visits! He customizes her lessons to her skill level and interests. No question he is a serious musician, but he is also laid back and funny which is perfect for young kids as it puts them at ease. Abby is thriving under Aaron's instruction, I'm so glad we found him!

Hi there! I'm Jorge Maresch, a bay area freelance cellist and music coach. My specialty is in chamber music; an intimate setting of musicians. I earned my BM and MM from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, have been teaching the art of cello for people from all walks of life for over 10 years.
I can't wait to teach you the wonders of learning and playing music. My teaching methods are always modified for the individual's body, and I encourage self exploration of the body and mind to achieve musical goals. Through self love of the body, we find and acknowledge the limits, and then find ways to overcome technique. Learning music has a different meaning for everyone, and I aspire to guide you in your journey. For the younger students, my fundamental purposes are to guide them on 'how to learn, by observing the present' and guide them with their reasoning process for better practice (not only applied to cello).

Whether you are a beginner or an advanced player I can help you reach your goals for playing the cello. I can help you get started on the cello or prepare for your next audition. I teach the classical track and enjoy teaching popular music as well. My students stay with me because I have a gentle approach to pushing them to fulfill their potential as a musician.

I graduated from Temple University in 2000 with a degree in music education with a concentration in cello and music technology.

I have taught cello and music theory privately for 20 years with great success. I have taught all different ages and levels of students. I have a studio in my home and I also travel to you if necessary. I am classically trained but I enjoy teaching contemporary music regularly to my students. I have the ability to arrange music from any genre for any instrument.

I am enthusiastic about the process of learning the cello and music theory. I love catering the journey to the needs of each individual student. I strive to figure out a student's true goals for music and help them obtain those goals.

Tara taught both of my children when they were 8 years old. She helped my daughter get started on the viola and when ready moved her to a dedicated viola teacher. Tara taught my son, who is now 16 for 4.5 years. I am grateful to Tara for instilling the love of the cello and recognizing my son’s raw talent. She also teachers Music to elementary school
children and she has an incredible gift with keeping kids interested and engaged. She helped my figgidity young boy stay focused, often giving him a choice of what he wanted to play next for his level. My son is in 10 th grade and continues to play and wants to study Cello Performance and Music. Both my children play in the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra and in small chamber groups and have reached the Regions and All states level with school. She has an incredible gift with children and her love for playing is infectious. I highly recommend her. She has a wonderful reputation in the community.
