Private Cello Teacher

After receiving my Undergraduate Degree in Cello Performance and having played for over 13 years, I feel prepared to teach students of any skill level. My classically-oriented upbringing has exposed me to a wide variety of settings and repertoire (solo, chamber, orchestral) as well as years of audition and performance preparation. I have also spent the past few years exploring and refining extended techniques (chops, slaps, etc.) in and outside of a wide variety of non-classical genres, ranging from improvisation-based styles such as jazz and bluegrass to rock and pop.

Regardless of style, my lessons typically focus on reinforcing a strong technical foundation and productive practice routine including, but not limited to, scales and arpeggios, rhythmic training, ear-training and theory, and reading (+sight reading training and chord charts). For method books I use Suzuki, Essential Elements 2000, and a variety of technique/etude books depending on skill level (i.e. Popper, Schroeder,

I have always wanted to play the cello but never had any musical experience. I was hesitant doing online lessons at first but that worry quickly ran away when I had my first online lesson with Jordi. Jordi was so welcoming and it made me excited for the next lesson to come! He is extremely patient and encouraging whenever I would mess up or get a bit nervous playing which helps my anxiety. I always learn something new from him every time we meet and he creates a clear plan on what to work on for my next lesson. He is an understanding teacher and tailors to your experience level and the kind of music genre you like to play. He is also very flexible with his schedule. I'm a senior in high school so I have many things on my plate but he's willing to make time fit mine and his schedule. I'm very thankful to have him as my cello teacher. If you're researching and contemplating which teacher you should choose, picking Jordi is the smartest choice! :)
William
My daughter loves her cello lessons and has made amazing progress. Jordi is both professional and relaxed which is a great combination.
Leslie
Jordi was a Godsend when the pandemic hit. I had a life long desire to make music as well as listen and learn how to relax. He has far surpassed any of my expectations of an instructor. He is phenomenal. He teaches, he listens to my questions; He even anticipates my questions. His smile immediately says “I understand where I can help.” I am always eager to meet with him every week.

Megan explained in very clear terms how to position the cello and began to explain the fingerings. She instills confidence in her students and is extremely approachable. I know I will enjoy future lessons with Megan!

Jessie L.
Megan is absolutely THE BEST! After 10 online classes with her, as an adult student, I cannot believe how much I have improved, how much confidence I have gained, and most incredibly, how much passion I have grown for cello. Megan is so kind, encouraging, genuine, positive, passionate, and knowledgeable! Her instructions are so concise and effective, that she can pinpoint exactly what I need to improve and offer the best explanation/technique. I have small hands with short pinky fingers that used to lead to a lot of frustrations. After meeting Megan, I have learned to comfortably face my disadvantages while minimizing the negative impact by her wonderful encouragement and practical techniques. She is WAY BETTER than my other teachers, and I had both online and in-person experiences prior to studying with Megan. I felt so fortunate to have found Megan as my cello teacher!

As an adult I decided one day to learn to play cello. Step 1: rent cello, step 2: find teacher. Fate smiled upon me and I discovered Gill at Blackstone Studios.

Now, over 3 yrs. later, I'm extremely impressed with Gill's ability to keep me continually progressing in my playing. Of course practicing helps too...go figure.

She always has a tip, technique, or exercise to smooth out problem areas. She understands the needs of an adult student and easily tailors my lessons as needed. I have also witnessed her teach very young students through high school students with equal aplomb.

GIll can teach, and also do. Listening to her play during lessons is inspiring but I've also heard as part of a trio playing music of such complexity my brain cell almost exploded. Very impressive! She is also a very pleasent and kind lady as well.

So if you are an adult looking for a new hobby or school student wanting to be the best cellist they can, I can not recommend Gill highly enough. She has taken me on a wonderful musical journey so far with no end in sight.

Thank you Gill!

My goals for my cello and piano students include the development of effective technique and musicality, as well as focusing on the profound beauty that humans can create and celebrate. Growth, both musical and personal, happens within a positive learning environment and with constructive feedback, in small moments and in large, and with successes and failures. Effective music education happens in an environment of mutual respect and connection. While it goes without saying that learning an instrument should be enjoyable, it is also hard work that is immensely rewarding. To learn anything is to be vulnerable and open to criticism, feedback, and new ideas. This can only happen in a space where feedback is honest, kind, and engaged. Physically healthy playing technique is imperative to the improvement of one’s playing, as well as continuing to play for a long time without damage to the body. It is my mission to help my students develop and maintain healthy habits so they avoid long-term ...

Good habits and an excellent attitude make great cellists. It doesn't hurt to love music too. I love music and I love to share my passion with my students.

Having a teacher who is an experienced performer is an important quality in a teacher. I am a professional classical musician currently working as a freelance cellist in the Chicago area. I play with Chicago Philharmonic, the Northbrook Symphony, the Lyric Opera of Chicago, and the Northwest Indiana Symphony, among others. Before coming to Chicago I played for 13 seasons with the Alabama Symphony Orchestra.

I have taught privately for over 10 years including 2 years in Paris. My teaching is a reflection of my teacher, Phillippe Muller. I studied with Msr. Muller while studying at the Paris Conservatory. Msr. Muller is currently a Professor of Cello at the Manhattan School of Music in New York City.

What a wonderful, fantastic lesson! I had developed bad habits over the years, like tilting my head to the right, and other problems and we worked on those and I am so so grateful. It was a very enjoyable lesson and Wei is fantastic!!!

Brad H.
Wei is a phenomenal teacher. I've had 5 lessons so far, and in that short time she's far exceeded my expectations. She's very good at both diagnosing problems and consistently providing a diversity of effective ways to overcome them. She has high expectations and always balances pushing me to be better with a lot of positive reinforcement; I'm never made to feel any pressure at all, but I still feel I can go very far in my cello playing with Wei's sage guidance.

I'm truly ecstatic to continue studying with Wei!

I was starting from zero with the cello and she was able to guide me through the Suzuki book to be able to play some songs -- even sight-reading. While I have a long way to go, I appreciate her focus and dedication to improving my playing skills. Highly recommended!"

"I have started cello lessons back in June. Susanna is someone who will go at your pace, & is very patient with you. I grew up learning how to read music, so I was able to get through the first book pretty quickly. She has helped me set a new goal so that when I become unmotivated to practice, I can remember what my main goal is. I have an early lesson, so I tend to be a little sassy... She does amazingly with handling my sass & dishing it right back out at me. She makes the difficult lessons more fun, & enjoyable. I would reach out to her if you are looking for a teacher who is flexible, patient, & a joy to learn from."

"Excellent, excellent teacher

I've been taking cello lessons from Bijan for about 2 years now, and his instruction has caused me take a greater appreciation for music on the whole. Cello is my first instrument and I was worried that, as an adult player just starting out, I'd have to hunt around for an effective teacher. I was very, very lucky in getting Bijan as my teacher. His credentials are unmatched and his talent across multiple musical styles is amazing. Any question you have, from instrument choice to deep music theory, he has an answer for. He has also been incredibly patient with me, even when I seemed frustrated and ready to give up. I probably would have if it had not been for his encouragement and help. Bijan would absolutely be my first choice for anyone in the San Diego area wanting to learn music."

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’ …

What Does it Take to Become a Professional Cello Player?

Pursuing a career in music is a risky decision, because by the nature of the industry few artists can “make it big.” Most artists aren’t pop stars, or even full-time career musicians, and all musicians also teach to remedy this. There are many paths to becoming a professional cello player, and depending on where you start it might be easy or hard to earn a reputation and start making money. I followed an academic path, studying classical music at university and then continuing my research …

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 …
