Jonny plans on communicating a love for music in his lessons. He believes firmly that technique's purpose is to get out of the way of the music and all physical training (posture, hand formation, release of tension, etc.) is to allow that to be fluid process. A lover of etudes and scales, Jonny uses those as the building blocks to developing a musical ear and allowing the performer to truly connect to the audience.

About Jonathan

Jonny Martin is studying under Kurt Baldwin of the Arianna String Quartet. Having studied the cello for over 15 years, Jonny has had many opportunities to experience the joys of music. He performed in orchestras such as the Missouri High School All State orchestra, UMSL symphony, Saint Charles Coun

I could hear a difference in my son's playing within the first lesson. The lesson just ended and my son is already looking forward to lesson two, thanks to Jonny's combination of expertise, enthusiasm, patience and encouragement.

Private Cello Teacher

I love showing other people how to play musical instruments, especially cello! If you're a beginner, I'll get you playing music right away; note-reading, scales, and stuff can come later. If you've been playing for a little while, we can work together to help you learn new skills, new music, and practice techniques that can help you progress quickly while avoiding frustration.

About Sammy

Hello, I'm Sammy! Making music is one of my favorite things to do. I believe that music is for everyone and lessons are about you, the student. So we can tailor your lessons to whatever you need. Whether you're a beginner, playing/learning for fun, or looking to enhance your playing, I can help

Thomas and Sammy connected right away. Thomas had a terrible experience last year and following that, wouldn't even pick up his cello without proadding and arguing. This afternoon he picked up his cello and started playing the minute he got home from school. Yea! Prayer answered!

Private Cello Teacher

I am a second year cello performance major at the University of Georgia and have been playing the cello for over ten years. I have experience performing and practicing in a variety of ensembles and genres (i.e. orchestras, chamber ensembles, jazz, rock/jam bands, bluegrass, pop). I plan to incorporate music theory and ear training into lessons to help my students become more familiar with their instruments and repertoire. I want to encourage innovation and creativity in each of my students so that they can feel comfortable approaching any musical opportunity.

About Jordi

I am a third year cello performance major and jazz minor (bass guitar) at the University of Georgia. I have been playing classical cello for over eleven years and bass for two. I am prepared to teach students of any age and give them the tools and adaptability to perform in a variety of ensembles,

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.

"We just finished our 25th months with Miss Amy as our teacher and are still so very happy to have her! She is the BEST teacher we know! Miss Amy is extremely skilled and very qualified. But the best part of having Miss Amy as a teacher is her endless patience and her sweet ability to get the very best from her students - and it all seems so effortless. We have always taken lessons on line with Miss Amy and even though we wondered at first if we could make it work it has been just perfect! Miss Amy has THE best way of helping our learners get out of lessons what they need and still keep working toward playing better a fun experience. She seems to know when a song may have become a labor rather than a love and just works around those perfectly. Miss Amy, we love you so much. You have truly changed our family. Our sons are complimented on their ability all the time and we get asked tons who our teacher is. We are always proud to tell any one who asks that Miss Amy in New York is our teacher! Thank you, Miss Amy!"

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 …
