Private Cello Teacher

Students can expect to learn the fundamental technique for learning cello or viola da gamba, through listening and playing exercises. My goal is to make lessons and practicing more like playing, and less like having to do something difficult. We'll find the right book to work from, and go from there! I will especially appreciate students who are genuinely interested and motivated and can set aside a bit of time each day to practice.

Christine is very patience and friendly. I really enjoy the lesson.
Collins
Collins had his first cello lesson with Christien today. He love it! Christien is super patient and very very professional. She corrected Collins' posture and the way to hold the bow. Christine gave very clear instruction, and made the lesson lot of fun.
Itai R.
Christien is a wonderful teacher! She is patient, caring, interesting and generally great with kids. It was pleasure to have her as our 8 y/o daughter's first cello teacher.
Thank you!

My high school daughter has received trumpet lessons from Jonathan for over a year. He is an excellent instructor, very knowledgeable and patient. As a school teacher, he knows how to work with kids in a way that gives him an advantage over a non-teacher performing artist. We've done lessons both in person and online. I'd highly recommend Jonathan to any parent looking to have their middle school/high school student take private lessons.

Jonathan is very patient with my kid and made the first lesson fun.

Bailey was an excellent lesson instructor! She took the time to make sure I was getting exactly what I wanted out of my violin lessons and tailored her approach to meet my background and ability level. She is extremely knowledgeable about all of the instruments she teaches, and her positive energy is contagious! I learned so much from Bailey and always enjoyed our lessons together.
Jack
Bailey gives great feedback and helped my son learn new songs quickly. Thanks!
Patrick
Bailey is an amazing teacher! I am primarily a low brass player, but had wanted to get better at piano. Bailey was able to analyze my musical needs, and developed a plan for my specific goals. She is great at focusing on specific problems and giving you advice for fixing them. At the same time, she is patient, and would be great with children, as well as adults. I would highly recommend getting lessons from Bailey!

Hi, I'm J! I just finished my Bachelor's degree in Cello Performance at Oberlin Conservatory, and I'm currently starting my Master's degree in the same at DePaul University.

For the past 6 years, I have been teaching private lessons to students age eight to 21. I have taught students at the Oberlin Community Music School, secondary cello students at Oberlin College, students of the Northern Ohio Youth Orchestras, community musicians, and advanced high schoolers who want to pursue a degree in music. I also have experience teaching students with autism and ADHD.

During my undergrad, I took several string pedagogy courses and was involved with education programs in the Oberlin area. I coached sectionals and chamber music with the Northern Ohio Youth Orchestras for four years, worked as a Teaching Assistant for the Oberlin Arts and Sciences Orchestra, and served as an instructor for Parkway/Rockwood Community Education during the summer.

I'm comfortable with all ages and levels, and ...

J is a wonderful, compassionate teacher. She is fantastic when it comes to breaking down concepts for students in learning. This ability translates well into teaching proper cello technique. Her playing is wonderful too! She is encouraging and inspiring to all!
Jackie
J is a phenomenal private teacher. I´ve taken lessons from J online and in person, and in both settings J has been just as enthusiastic to teach, eager to coach to the best of their ability, and a great person to work with. J has always pushed me to get better each lesson, exposed me to new opportunities, and supported me. J is flexible, open to questions, and a super understanding and kind human as well. Overall, I am more than pleased with the education I am recieving from J and the tools they´ve given me to use during my own practice time. J has without a doubt helped me become a better cellist.
Colin
J is an extraordinary teacher and musician, very skillful and professional. Highly recommended!

Online 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. ...

During my studies I performed with the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra through the Patti Johnson Wilson Orchestral Fellowship, with Principal Guest Conductor Daniel Hege. I worked under conductors including Eric Whitacre, Benjamin Zander, Sarah Ioannides, and Gerhardt Zimmerman, among others. I performed

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.

Music should be fun!

Every student is different, therefore every lesson is different. I strive to make sure each lesson is geared directly to the needs and skills of the student. If the student has enough skills they will have some input into what they are playing. Everyone should be playing something they really enjoy.

About Gretchen

I love teaching music! It is my life and sharing it with students is very rewarding to me. I believe that music should be taught with patience and encouragement, not demands and stress. It is always a good time to start music. *** Studio Equipment *** Dedicated music studio w/ stands, violin,

"Megan is a one of a kind teacher. My daughter absolutely adores her! She connects on a personal level with all her students and helps them thrive in their musical career. She adapts the lessons perfectly and goes above and beyond what other private lesson teachers have done before.

My daughter raves about her lesson for several hours after. We will continue lessons with Megan for as long as possible!"

The best review I can give is that this morning after the lesson, unbidden, she picked up her cello and practiced for the few minutes she had between breakfast and leaving for the bus. That is inspiration. What could be better that that?!"

"My 14-year-old daughter has been taking lessons with Megan for about a year and really enjoys it. (These lessons are in addition to her orchestra class at school.) They work on pieces from upcoming school concerts or add-on pieces that Megan selects. The one-on-one sessions have made a big difference! (She's now 1st chair!) And Megan is also very flexible if we need to cancel or reschedule. She's awesome!"

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 …
