Kyle is a great piano teacher! He is very patient with my 12-year old son. Just yesterday he referred to him as “fun Kyle” because he teaches him small songs on the side that he can show friends and family or are for upcoming holidays. He’s always punctual and respectful of our family and home. I’m grateful to have found him!

Private Cello Teacher

I've been teaching cello for over 27 years and my students have gone on to play in youth orchestras, attend PMEA and ASTA events or go to college as a music major. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to improve your playing skills and as time goes on you'll be able to play at a more advanced level. I specialize in Traditional Classical violin, typically use Essential Elements 2000, Samuel Applebaum methods, Suzuki methods and traditional scales and etude books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I took in person lessons with Susanna 17 years ago. I put the violin down & hadn’t played since but decided now to take it up again. I was hesitant to take online lessons but then I found Susanna giving lessons online & signed up. Have only had 1 lesson so far but it was great. Susanna has been doing online lessons for some time & has the format down. She is still the great teacher/communicator I remember even in this new format!

Excellent teacher! Very organized, kind and patient.

We are loving cello with Quinn! We had her in person before COVID and now online. She does a great job of guiding the learning process and working with the student (my daughter as an individual)
Shauna
My 9 yr old daughter began cello lessons with Quinn about 2 weeks before lockdown started. I was worried that online lessons wouldn't work out, but Quinn has been amazing. She's great at explaining everything so that my daughter understands, and she pushes just enough to keep her interested without being overwhelmed. She also answers questions promptly by email when any problems arise. I can't recommend her highly enough!

She’s a very patient, encouraging teacher and I’ve had a great experience learning from her!

"Our experience has been excellent. Kelvin's lessons are a challenging supplement to my son's school orchestra program. We also appreciate Kelvin's quick response to email and accommodating a few short notice notice schedule changes. My son enjoys his weekly Skype lesson and seems to be making great progress. We highly recommend Kelvin Lin."

"Ilona is one of the best teachers I had so far. I have fun with her learning cello.

I learned a lot with her and enjoy playing with her duets on the violin. Because of her I got into Gold Cost Youth Orchestra where I met one of her violin students Sharri. She encouraged me to stay focused on my playing and to perform chamber music with her. Very well organized teacher, I will recommend her for any age."

"Mr. Anderson was my teacher from 5th grade to 12th grade. He is a wonderful instructor who cared about my growth and helped cultivate my talent as a cellist! I will always be thankful for his patience and encouragement as my school, family, and extracurricular events moved in my life. He is creative in merging my talents with pieces and camps where I could showcase my talents and be challenged. I am very glad that I had the chance to be one of Mr. Anderson's students, and I still keep in-touch with some of his other students to this day. I think that speaks to how Mr. Anderson creates a culture of caring, talent, and fun. All of which are critical to not only playing cello, but also in life. Highly recommend him as a cello teacher and a life mentor!"

"Rob is a great teacher. I hired him to help me play a song at a friend's wedding, having not played cello in years. He had some really helpful tricks up his sleeve to help reinforce the things we went over in each lesson, like bow technique and posture.
Rob was also very flexible in terms of what we focused on at each lesson. Working with him, it's easy to tell that cello and teaching are both passions of his."

"I am brand new to the cello. My first concerns were the ergonomics... how best to hold the cello, my bow, my string hand, posture etc. Victor gave very clear information on all of these and then was able to give exercises to help these. When we moved to the playing, it was the same clear progressive instruction that was a balance of rational progression and inspiration."

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 …

Popular Cello Songs for Adult Beginners

The cello is an absolutely beautiful instrument that calls countless numbers of people to play it. Adult students are sometimes the most challenging to find pieces for as they don’t want to play the “kiddie” songs that many younger students are excited about. These pieces for younger students are short, based on simple folk songs that children know, and generally do not feel challenging enough for many adult students. So what popular cello pieces are out there that adult students can u …

What are the Hardest Cello Pieces? How to Get from Beginner to Advanced Player

As a beginner I often told myself I would know I am a really great cellist when I could play Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee at full speed. To my young ears, this simply had to be one of the hardest cello pieces with its high range, chromaticism, and famously fast tempo. As my musical career continued I worked on these and other skills to reach a point I could begin learning the piece confidently, and it was only a matter of time before I achieved my goal. Of course, this wasn’ …
