Private Cello Teacher

I’m passionate about music education and I am a full time music teacher and active performer throughout the SE Michigan area. In the summers I teach cello and music improvisation at the Cellochanwoods Cello retreat in Vermont.

Lessons are designed and catered around each student and I believe in a well rounded approach in teaching music. While everyone will learn a solid foundation of note reading and playing technique, lessons also pull from sources such as music theory, ear training, music history, etc.

I hold a Masters in Music Performance from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, London and a Bachelors in Music Performance from the University of Michigan.

Whether you’re looking to learn a new hobby, or further your musical skills, I’d love to help out. All levels welcome!

I believe that every individual learns music skills differently. As a teacher I seek to design lessons that provide each student with the opportunities to grow in a creative and enjoyable way. Providing a customized schedule for each student is essential for engaging and encouraging musical growth. I have discovered that as students combine interests with their music study it brings more enjoyment to their musical experience.

Best instructor ever. Very patient. Knows how to handle an old guy like me. My playing doesn't really deserve someone as good, but I'm thankful to have her.
Julie
We love Rachel!!! She is patient and kind. She carefully explains what my daughter can do to improve her technique and tone. She is intentional in her instruction, making sure the basics are solid. She is an excellent bass instructor. Thanks Rachel!
Rebecca
My daughter was excited about the bass again after her lesson with Rachel. She is ready to step up her game and Rachel guided her patiently with thoughtful (not judgmental) encouragement. Looking forward to the next lesson 😊

Working with Patty has been an incredible experience. She’s truly nurtured my love for music and been so patient and so uplifting. I’m very thankful to have found her as an instructor!
SangAe
I have been her student over two and a half years now. Over the past 4 months she converted to online lessons due to the COVID pandemic. At the beginning I was not sure I could get the same quality or experience from the cello lesson without seeing her in person. However, her teaching via FaceTime was seamless and I was able to follow her teaching without any problems. She is the best instructor ever in-person and online for teaching the cello!
Emma
Mrs. Patty is an excellent and patient teacher who I have been taking lessons from for 8 years! She is great with younger players (like me, when I started in 4th grade) and with adults!

"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!"

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 …
