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.

I love teaching strings. Cello was my first instrument. I focus heavily on bow technique. I have gotten students into youth orchestras and passed college auditions. I like to use the Essential Elements and Suzuki books.
I also offer online group lessons at a highly discounted price. I suggest that all my students join. This is a great option for kids while class is out.

After more than two years of enrolling in music classes at school, my son was considering quitting. He was not making progress with the cello and was obviously frustrated. We enrolled him in lessons with Michelle. With only a few weeks of lessons, he improved significantly. Michelle went back to the basics and helped him correct his technique. He is now much happier with the instrument. He even plays it occasionally beyond his daily required practice time. He also decided to continue with band at school. We are very pleased with the outcome of the lessons.

Private Cello Teacher

I am a professional cellist and private educator based in Los Angeles, California. I have seventeen years of cello experience, including a Bachelors in Music from the prestigious University of North Texas. I earned my Masters of Music in Cello Performance at Oklahoma State University, where my research included pedagogy and performance practice.

My former teachers include Shawn Sanders (2006-2010), Nikola Ružević (-2014) and Dr. Meredith Blecha-Wells (-2016). I have performed masterclasses for artists including Phyllis Young, Bion Tsang, Dobrila Berković-Magdalenič, Johnathan Ruck, and Kari Caldwell.

My primary education used Suzuki Method materials along with exercises by Popper and Dotzauer, and later more advanced studies such as Feuillard, Duport, and Piatti. My teaching uses these resources, in addition to personalized exercises, to help my students achieve their musical goals. These goals may include repertoire which is strictly classical, contemporary, or a blend of the two. ...

Mr. Crider was such a great teacher! I appreciated the way he adjusted every lesson to my needs and patiently helped me work through technique.
I would recommend him to anyone wishing to begin or further their classical training on the cello.

Donny always takes extra care to meet the individual needs if our daughter. He is kind in his approach, praising accomplishments and hard work. However, he does challenge her to continue to improve in musical knowledge and performing with excellence.
Mikki
My son was privileged to study with Donny for two years. He made MAJOR strides in improvement with his cello technique during that time. He was challenged and encouraged each week. Donny's clarity was a great help in growing technique. Listening for musicality was never overlooked. We highly recommend him as a teacher.

I LOVE teaching cello! I enjoy not only sharing my love of the music and the instrument, but also helping to expand my students' knowledge and hone their technique. My approach focuses on giving students the tools they need to become more independent musicians, so that the learning process will continue outside the lessons. This mostly consists of teaching a student how to practice efficiently and effectively, so they develop a good ear and become adept and solving their own musical problems or struggles. I will work with you to reach your cello playing goals and to enjoy yourself in the process!

I've been teaching cello for 30 years and my students have gone on to play with different ensembles like symphony orchestras. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play simple songs by reading and by ear and as time goes on you'll be able to play more complex repertoire. I specialize in classical, style but I can teach you different kinds of styles, typically use Kummer method and Suzuki repertoire but I use a variety of method and books. I have the following tools available for your lessons: cello, computer program, sound system, Tuner and Metronome . I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Maria is wonderful. I am an adult first-time learner, and I couldn't imagine a better teacher. Maria is patient and funny but also extremely organized and attentive to accuracy. The beauty of her own cello playing stuns me every time. I found her by accident, and feel extremely lucky. Highly recommended.

Maria is so helpful, got down to business and now I have plenty to practice before my next lesson. I am grateful she feels comfortable having me in her home studio for instruction. I would find ZOOM meetings quite difficult since I am truly a beginner.
Thank you, Maria!

"This was our first lesson with Hallie. But she was very engaging, encouraging and asked all the questions that I could possibly hope a teacher/tutor would ask to get an idea of where the student is to make an action plan.
My Son has much more confidence that he can achieve his goals with her help! ~Thank you!"

Cello Thumb Position: Where to Place Your Fingers & Hands

Cello thumb position is one of the big leaps of technique for advancing cellists and is one of the skills that sets more advanced students from the intermediate. This new technique opens up the higher ranges of the instrument and allows us to play more advanced solos and etudes. This technique is not something you should rush into though! Make sure to take things slowly at first and master the basic concepts before moving on.  When Should You Focus on Your Cello Thumb Position? There have to …

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’ …

Is My Cello Too Small? How to Know You've Found the Right Fit

At some point, your young cellist will grow out of their instrument. Growing out of an instrument is an awkward time for everyone involved and it is not something that happens suddenly. More often than not, finding that it is time to upgrade to a larger instrument is a slow realization that something is wrong in the musical force. If you can consult a professional, please do so! This decision is beneficial for the long run although it presents its own challenges upon the switch.  What Cell …
