Private Cello Teacher

I believe that every student has his/her own need because we are all unique as human beings, every one of us has their stronger and weaker skills and my job as a teacher is to find the best tool to pass to the given student.

I am strict but fun, whichever amount the student needs more.

I use the Suzuki books because the songs (and later pieces) in are very good, popular, fun, and evenly progressive.

Achievements depend also on the student and the amount of practicing done at home. I as a teacher can only do that much in passing my knowledge and spur the student own. Practicing at home is very, very important.

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.

She is an amazing teacher and you should have her as your instructor she taught me all I know about classical piano so I thank her for that.

I had a great first lesson with Jessica. The lesson took place in a comfortable studio in her house. We discussed my goals and then reviewed where I am currently. She paid carefully attention to my body position with the bow and had several great suggestions on exercises to improve it. I'm already looking forward to the next lesson.

Online Cello Teacher

Hi Everybody! My name is Rhody, my pronouns are he/him/his, and I’m just the person you’re looking for. I have 22 years of cello-playing under my belt, and I have been teaching to kids, tweens, teens, and adults since 2012! I’m incredibly patient, an avid encourager, and I LOVE helping others discover their own latent gift of music within them. I specialize in beginner and intermediate cello.

If you’re looking to learn a new skill, or if you know the cello already and would like a refresher, get in touch with me! All of our lessons will follow a customized plan that meets your specific needs. You'll be learning everything from correct posture to fundamental theory, and we'll even throw in some pop songs if you like!

About Rhody

Having spent the last decade traveling the world and then going cross country in the U.S., I have seen many beautiful things that tint my life a pretty shade. My music is a facsimile of the world I experience around me, and I am heavily influenced by it's beauty. My goal is to get the beauty YO

Rhody is a fantastic teacher who excels in making you feel listened to and has the patience and understanding to best enable you to grow.
Nikita
When I picked up guitar again for the first time in a decade, I wasn’t sure I would be up to the challenge. But every step of the way, Rhody has been communicative, patient, and a hoot to work with!
From walking me through music theory fundamentals (sometimes over and over), to helping me understand tempo, Rhody has helped me gain confidence in myself as a musician!
I can’t recommend him as a teacher enough.
Courtney
I had picked up the cello last August with absolutely 0 experience with strings. I had one other teacher when I first began and unfortunately needed to take a break due to financials.

Fast forward to this year and I had quite accidentally found Rhody's information but I am so glad that I did!

He is a fun, patient and knowledgeable teacher. He explains things in a very simplistic way and makes sure you're both on the same page. He understands that life gets in the way of practice sometimes but kindly pushes you to keep trying and keep practicing (that IS the only way we'll get better, y'all).

Since I've started practicing and learning through Rhody, I feel like I actually understand how the music is ought to be played...and that's a sure step in the direction of truly understanding such a beautiful instrument.

I could go on but I'll leave it with this: please go through Rhody! You won't find a better teacher!

We completed 5 cello online lessons with Megan and it has been great! At first, I was not sure how online classes will work, but I should say that it has been very rewarding from the convenience of our home. My son has picked up quite a few techniques in the last few classes and I hear good improvement! Megan is very friendly and encouraging. I intend to continue with Megan.

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 …
