Private Cello Teacher

I am an emotive cellist with two decades experience. I have toured internationally performing my original works including London, Paris, and Berlin. As a member of the Pierce Quartet I regularly arrange and perform music for weddings and other special occasions. I love sharing classical music with all levels of students. Lessons with me are calm, meditative experiences where we use peaceful techniques to enter into the heart of music.

Lenna is a great cello teacher. My son has been learning cello with Lenna for about a year now. And he is more and more passionate about the instrument. Lenna is always patient, thoughtful and creative to teach kids to be more enthusiastic on music. I recommend Lenna to everyone who wants to learn cello.
Marianna
Someone I trust recommended Lenna to me for a cello teacher - I am an adult beginner and I really knew nothing at all about how to play or read music.
Lenna was the most patient, understanding and fun teacher I could have asked for. She understood what I needed and got me from barely able to hold the bow to playing Rigoletto in front of a small audience in 6 months! THAT is no small feat. She loves playing, she loves teaching and she understands the human condition. A very good combination indeed. I highly recommend you hire her as your cello teacher, or your child's cello teacher, or your next door neighbor's cello teacher.
Zack
Lenna is a terrific cello teacher! I feel lucky to have found her through this site. 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!

Chialing is a truly amazing teacher! I am studying cello with her after taking nearly 10 years off from touching my cello. Chialing is extremely patient and always has advice on how to practice and better understand the cello. I feel very comfortable learning from Chialing and feel even more excited about learning music after each lesson.

Chialing came to our home for piano lessons for our two girls. They took to her immediately. She is skilled at dealing with young children and extremely warm. Her lessons are tailored to each child's ability. They get excited to practice what they have learned after she leaves.

Thomas is honestly an amazing musician and teacher. He was really patient with me. Despite having to deal with major timezone differences (as I live in Myanmar), he took the time to figure it out. Also, he helped me figure out the stuff it took me months to figure out. He also really knows what he's doing. I learned so much in that hour of practice. 10/10 would recommend him.

Hi! My teaching is inspired by my classical training, while incorporating work experiences in improvisation, jazz, and pop. I hope to help students engage with music and equip them with tools to be uniquely creative and expressive.

I am 12 years old and have been playing cello for 6 years. Caleb was my instructor at the Mark O'Connor string camp. The week before our lesson, he recorded an accompaniment for a piece we would be working on, and it was great to get a head start and to be able to play with him. We worked on bluegrass practicing techniques and improvising with blues scales. It was some super cool music and thanks to Caleb, my playing is improving!
Yutae(Albert)
Being my very first cello instructor, Caleb not only taught me how to play, but gave me a desire. Usually, the first experience determines the outcome of what happens, for example, if you never enjoy an instrument, it is inevitable that you would drop it quite soon. However, Caleb found me real enthusiasm and motivation. Even though I am no longer his student, I always look forward to hearing any news about him, from a simple hello to him posting a new video of his performances. Without someone like him, I probably would have had given up cello after my first year. He is the most enjoyable and helpful instructor so far.

Hello! My name is Rochelle L. and I am a Boston University graduate with a degree in Cello Performance. I have been teaching cello for almost 9 years and it is something I truly enjoy doing!

I strive to give my students a solid foundation that they can rely on, regardless of whether or not they wish to pursue a career in music or not. I am fortunate enough to have studied with incredible cellists and musicians and I am eager to share what they have taught me.

Rochelle helped me get reacquainted with the cello after a 22 year hiatus. She is patient and focuses on tone and technique. Her musical knowledge is apparent as she structures her lessons around skill sets that are in need of fine tuning. Her ability to pick up on these skills sets is what makes her a great teacher.

Corey communicates clearly, gives tangible things to practice and work on, and is friendly. I also appreciate that he takes time to check in and see how my son has been. During this quarantine kids are needing asl the connections they can find. My son looks forward to his lessons and I enjoy listening to him play."

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!"

He always brought all of his teaching materials relevant to me and made sure we cover what I needed to learn/reinforce. He was also clearly experienced with teaching a wide range of students and applied relevant teaching methods that worked best for me. I also appreciated how flexible he was in scheduling/rescheduling lessons whenever despite his own busy schedule and commitment. I only had a very positive experience learning from him and appreciated the fact that he demonstrated his passion for teaching in every lesson I had with him.

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 …
