Private Cello Teacher

I have a degree in music with a teaching certificate. I have been teaching cello privately for 10 years. Depending on the age of the child we will start with either Essential Elements or Suzuki cello book one. They will start with proper positioning and plucking. Once they have 8 notes down, we start bowing. As we progress, we will be doing scales, and etudes.

Ms Chris was great my daughter really enjoyed her first lesson. Ms Chris was easy to work with and made my daughter comfortable that she felt free to ask questions and make mistakes without worry. My daughter is looking forward to the next lesson.

If you’re looking for a dedicated, knowledgeable and patient strings teacher, you will love Mrs. Heins. Both of my sons have been taking lessons from Mrs. Heins for several years (one for viola and one for cello). They have learned so much under her instruction, such as earning All-County and All-State honors. They also practice their live performance skills twice a year during informal musical concerts. Mrs. Heins also offers participation in the Royal Conservatory Music Development program, which can earn your child credit for college. She is a gem and should you choose her, you won’t be disappointed.

Experienced cellist with very active playing career in orchestra, chamber music, and solo repertoire. 5 years of experience teaching young advancing cellists. Currently pursuing a Bachelor's in Cello Performance, and I keep myself very busy performing across the country, because I believe staying very active performing helps keep me fresh and interested in always finding new solutions which I can pass to my students.

"Jessica is an awesome teacher and a great role model! I love working on the cello with her since it is easy for me to pick up the techniques she teaches me. Because she has so much experience playing cello from a young age, Jessica always comes into each session with more new tasks for me to work on. I love having lessons with her because you quickly build a strong bond. Honestly, it has never been a dull moment with Jessica and her bubbly personality. She is the best I’ve ever had!"

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 …
