Private Cello Teacher

I have been teaching cello for 6 years and have recently earned a Doctor of Musical Arts degree. I have experience with both young and adult students alike and can confidently tailor my teaching to the needs of my students. Keeping the instrument and music an important part of the student's life is important to me and I always try and look for ways to keep them engaged with music personally, as well.

Ms. Yuliya is an excellent instructor. My daughter enjoys her lessons and is eager to receive them each week. It quickly became apparent that Ms. Yuliya is a highly qualified professional and relates very well to my teenage daughter. Highly recommend her lessons!

Private Cello Teacher

Classical cellist for over 10 years, experienced in teaching for 2 years from beginner to advanced levels. Specialized in solo cello works, chamber music, orchestra, opera, etc. I will have my own lesson curriculum and repertoires adjusted to my students depending on their levels, and interest in music. I like to give at least two repertoires for each student: one for technique and one music work. Not only my students will improve their performance skills, but also in sight reading, ear training, music theory, and the ability to analyze and interpret pieces that they are given.

Let's get started!

I provide a fun experience of learning to play and share music. My philosophy in working with students is to curb their interests with my vision for their success with technique and musicality. I want my student to not only become good cellist, but also enjoy music on a theoretical and historical level. My overall goal is to make a connection with people that will last and music can be an outlet for growing as a person.

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.

As an educator, my philosophy is to teach my students how to become the best versions of themselves by creating a safe, healthy learning environment. My mission is to cultivate musicians to be the best they can be by receiving a well-rounded music education, developing mastery, and becoming life-long music appreciators. My goal as an educator is to inspire and encourage students to test their limits and strive for musical, personal, and professional growth.

Benefits of being in my cello studio:

Flexible schedule: Unlike other cello teachers, I have a lot of availability throughout the day and week. As long as you reschedule within 24 hours, and I can guarantee you have a lesson during that week!

Access to resources for free: Students in my studio will receive special access to my cello studio google drive folder on my website. You will find helpful resources such as music, video tutorials, recordings, and so much more that are only available for students in my studio.

Sarah
We met Ashley when she was a junior in college through the Univ. of Texas String Project. Over the two years with her in this program, Ashley has been most dedicated and caring, and her passion for teaching showed when she went above and beyond to address my questions. She is also organized, reliable, and resourceful. During the program breaks and then post graduation, we continued with private lessons because Ashley made lessons fun so my little cellist loves hanging out with Ashley that much! Transitioning to online lessons was a trial for everyone, but Ashley managed to make that work and her dedication did not falter. We are so thankful for her and highly recommend her to anyone looking to learn/improve in cello.
Yash
Ashley is a wonderful cellist and teacher. She is kind, patient and knows how to get great progress while always keeping it fun. She is passionate about each and every one of her students. I am grateful that she chose to first focus on the fundamentals for my son. She shows sincere interest in the student’s development. Her instructions are clear and concise. She constantly gives feedback to parents about the development/ progress of the student. I could not more highly recommend her!
Tom H
Ashley is amazing. We could not have hoped for a better cello teacher for our five year old, Keira. Ashley has the patience of a saint. Kids love her. She's especially good at making cello lessons fun and engaging. In addition to being a phenomenally good cello player, Ashley is also one of the nicest people you could hope to meet. We could not recommend her more highly. Thank you, Ashley, for nurturing a love of the cello in our child.

"I took up the cello in my late 20's and am finally back taking lessons after a few years, so I had developed a lot of bad playing habits. Jessica really helped to deconstruct my technique and is helping me rebuild a stronger foundation on which to perform. She is also dependable regarding emailing and texting when needed. I would definitely recommend her!"

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 …
