As a cello performance major in college, music theory courses were a requirement for my degree. Having earned a bachelors degree and now working towards my masters degree, I have studied and taken courses from the very basics to more advanced theory. Please email me if you have any questions! I hope to hear from you soon.

About Victor

My name is Victor and I have been actively teaching cello for the past 7 years. In Ames, IA I had a studio of 8 students, all ranging from different age groups and abilities. I also have experience teaching online lessons, which require a slightly different approach than in person lessons. I recent

My 9 year old's first cello lesson. She loved it. A great teacher with a lot of patience, insight and tact.
Julia
Victor is a wonderful teacher. He’s very patient and focuses a lot on the important fundamentals. I’m an adult student and he was very encouraging and helpful.
Peter Ruland
As a 40 year old beginner I was a little nervous about the whole online experience as well as starting a new instrument. Victor makes the online teaching experience seamless. Victor is calm, thoughtful and patient. He always finds a way to explain something in a way that relates to me specifically. To do this someone must be able to listen as well as teach. This is quality I have not found in all of my teachers/instructors/coaches throught the years. Victor is also easily the most flexible of any teacher I have had. He always finds a way to accommodate my schedule and works around any issues that arise. I have really enjoyed my learning experience thus far and look forward to each lesson. I would not hesitate to recommend Victor to anyone looking to learn the cello.

Yasmin's lessons at her in-home location can be chaotic at times due to young children, however if you can work past this she offers wonderful piano lessons. She is a very kind instructor with lots of patience and knowledge on the subject of piano technique and music theory.

I am a professional cellist with years of performing and teaching.
I attended the Jacobs School of Music for my undergraduate and masters' degrees and was a graduate teaching assistant. I also received my Stott Pilates Teaching Certification while at IU and incorporate postural alignment into my teaching. I have Suzuki certification and work on a strong technical foundation, which both facilitates performing and frees us up to explore non-traditional techniques and other genres.

Most importantly, I strive to nurture the love and passion for music and cello and I am here to help you achieve your musical goals.

About Maria

I teach cellists of all ages and abilities and tailor the lesson to the individual. Lessons include standard repertoire, and if requested, non-traditional styles as well. I have experience with solo repertoire, orchestra, chamber music, and folk music, and can help you develop your ear and even sin

I break down music theory concepts into bite sized chunks so that students can understand how composers write what they write. I have even begun my own book on Music Theory due out in the near future. I have taught music theory to schools in Pomona and Diamond Bar. I have synesthesia (seeing colors with notes) which can help people see music theory in a different way. I teach about intervals, scales, circle of fifths, all the way up to analyzing counterpoint, episodes, fugues, preludes, sonata, sonata-rondos, symphonic scores, note spelling, clef reading, musical dictation, sight singing and more! For distances over 5 miles, I'd prefer online clientele.

About Cody

With my two Bachelor's degrees in Music Composition and Technology, I began tutoring students in piano, voice, and composition as it was part of my training. I also have experience writing and editing essays, books, and more for several independent clients. I have experience writing my own books as

"Sammy is the first vocal teacher I’ve ever had and I couldn’t have asked for a better teacher. Starting vocal lessons is difficult and it can be nerve raking trying to sing in front of someone for the first time, but Sammy is so encouraging and patient that it put me totally at ease. Voice seems like a difficult thing to teach, there all kinds of abstract concepts that are hard to grasp unless you’ve grown up singing, but Sammy is so great at explaining them. I always thought my voice was weak and quite, but it has improved so much since I started taking lessons with Sammy that I barely recognize it."

"Danny has helped me with a project I had for my church. It was my first time singing in front of my congregation or more than a few people and my dogs. So I set up classes and could only find good acoustics in my walk in closet. So with my laptop I did classes and right away Danny was able to point out my problem areas. Long story short Danny's advise is to always "work with what you have". So the day of the performance we had some tech issues and one of two monitors went out. I learned and was reminded to why I was singing and kept smiling. It was a success. Even though was nervous and shaking a bit. They loved me. Now I perform every chance I get."
