I can help the student practice and learn their way around the cello in an efficient manner. This means that I will be helping with intonation and other technique by giving exercises for the challenging passages. Lessons will be customized according to the goal of the student. Sharing my knowledge in cello and music is a passion and a goal of mine and I would love to help reach your goals.

I had to stop because of the pandemic. Lessons were thorough, she was insistent and very detailed.
Mark H.
While a bit humbling Alex definitely helped me fix some glaring technical issues, particularly with the bow.
Miyeon
She helped my 12 year old daughter prepare the Saint Saens Cello concerto (1st movement) for a small performance. My daughter played more spiritedly after her session with Alex. She was especially helpful for a specific bow technique.

I love teaching strings. Cello was my first instrument. I focus heavily on bow technique. I have gotten students into youth orchestras and passed college auditions. I like to use the Essential Elements and Suzuki books.
I also offer online group lessons at a highly discounted price. I suggest that all my students join. This is a great option for kids while class is out.

As a cellist with 18 years of playing experience and 5+ years of teaching I have learned that music can change your life at any age and even can help you heal from whatever struggles life throws at you. Music and learning an instrument can improve your brain functions in a way that no other activity can accomplish. I am so passionate about teaching and customize my teaching style to each student individually because the same approach does not work for everyone. I strongly believe in that and try to get to know my students, who they are, what their strengths and weaknesses are and how I can help to overcome those. I get very involved with my students and build a personal relationship with each one of them to further help them with cello. I've had some wonderful instructors myself including Amir Eldan and Hans Jensen who taught me not only how to play the instrument itself but also how to use those skills that come with being a musician in life.
In my lessons I focus on ...

Cello:
A bowed or plucked string instrument with four strings tuned in perfect fifths. The strings from low to high are generally tuned to C2, G2, D3 and A3, an octave lower than the viola. It is a member of the violin family of musical instruments, which also includes the violin and viola and the double bass. The cello is used as a solo musical instrument, as well as in chamber music ensembles (e.g., string quartet), string orchestras, as a member of the string section of symphony orchestras, and some types of rock bands. It is the second-largest and second lowest (in pitch) bowed string instrument in the modern symphony orchestra, the double bass being the largest and having the lowest (deepest) pitch. My lessons always start out with the basics! We start out by learning notes by plucking the strings and then the bow is soon incorporated. The goal is to eventually learn all the notes on the fretboard and also learning how to read and play chords. As the student progresses ...

I will definitely be expanding my accordion skills & of music theory . I’ll also be adding some 😎 Jazz Standards to my repertoire ☺️.
Kelly S.
Karen was not prepared for the lesson. She spent 15 minutes trying to send me photos from a beginner Tabla book available on Amazon. She did not own a set of Tabla drums. She ensured me she could teach anything, but could not pronounce the words used for proper Tabla technique, knew no history and could not even teach me to tune. She literally was reading out of the book figuring it out along the way. I lost a lot of trust from this and asked for a full refund for future lessons.

I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

Mark is a smart, talented, and highly responsive teacher. His knowledge of the material (jazz piano) is evident, as is his skill. Every lesson he encourages me to reach out with additional questions or ask for additional resources, and he's quick to provide a lead sheet or hand-written notes explaining music theory. He explains concepts well, is patient, and encouraging. I think of Mark as a guide to help me on my musical journey, and he's been a wonderful guide (at a great price).
Prince
Mark is a good teacher. Very patient and friendly with students.
Krys P.
Lessons with Mark might work for you if you are treating them as extra help on your violin school homework. However, he was not effective as leading teacher. He kept asking what we are going to work on today, and didn't have any plan how to lead the lesson. Also he kept praising the playing even when it was pretty bad, and didn't offer immediate feedback and guidance how to correct it. On the flip side the lesson pricing is reasonable so that might still work for some people.

She is a great teacher. Relaxing environment and pushes me to be the best I can for my level. I love that she is flexible. I do equestrian show jumping and ride 5 days a week and teach 3 days a week and work full time and sometimes the shows may not work for my lesson schedule but she always works with me. holds annual recitals for studio and Christmas. I think anyone any age who wants to learn and can make it to her will love her and enjoy her....She also lets me play with my Black Cello =)"

"Johnny is experienced in teaching cello. His lessons are always passionate, musical, and informative. There are several aspects of his lessons that I'd like to share.

1. Full of Content: He delivers enough details of a new technique with simplification for an easy understanding.
2. Learning Curve: By breaking down and reorganizing the knowledge, he teaches new concepts step by step, from approachable actions to efficient actions.
3. Customization: He helps you find out a suitable solution to grow on the techniques based on your own physical and cognitive characteristics.
4. Experimentation: The correct ways he suggests you do is demonstrated by experimenting with different ways for comparison, which you would not only know what to do but know the reason behind it.

Cello is a beautiful yet complicated instrument. To enjoy it, a great mentorship is necessary and truly valued."

"Mr. Anderson was my teacher from 5th grade to 12th grade. He is a wonderful instructor who cared about my growth and helped cultivate my talent as a cellist! I will always be thankful for his patience and encouragement as my school, family, and extracurricular events moved in my life. He is creative in merging my talents with pieces and camps where I could showcase my talents and be challenged. I am very glad that I had the chance to be one of Mr. Anderson's students, and I still keep in-touch with some of his other students to this day. I think that speaks to how Mr. Anderson creates a culture of caring, talent, and fun. All of which are critical to not only playing cello, but also in life. Highly recommend him as a cello teacher and a life mentor!"

Handedness is the sense that one hand is more dexterous or coordinated compared to the other. Researchers usually determine an individual’s handedness by observing which hand is used to write or eat.

There are famous luthiers, like Stradivari and Guarneri, whose names are synonymous with masterpieces of craftsmanship.
