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

I think it was a great lesson. Although it would be great to be able to jump in and start playing. Sammy gave me tools and exercises to help build a strong foundation in my learning and playing!

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

Great Experience. On time, polite and good teacher. My son liked him. He is a keeper.

He was relatable to my 10 year old and thouroughly covered several essential techniques and excercises to practice.

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.

I have been doing cello for close to 10 years now, and as of 3 years ago, I discovered that I love teaching! It's become a favorite way of mine to inspire other's to be the best musician they can be! The cello isn't a particularly easy instrument to learn, but I will say that it is SO worth it. It takes work, but what doesn't? I would encourage everyone to play an instrument! It just so happens that I can only help with a few of those. ;)

About Leah

I am 17 years old and a member of the Missouri Philharmonic Orchestra, and the principle cellist in the Play and Sing His Praises Homeschool Orchestra, where I also get to have the pleasure of being able to teach children and adults an instrument, when they otherwise might not have had a chance.

Charles has been great with my early skill development. He continues every week to stress the basic for my violin training. He remains supportive and patient. We have had lessons in person and online. I am beginner at 65 years old and I would highly recommend Charles Bossert as a violin, and other strings instruments instructor. Thank You Charles for your help.
Keiko
I love it!
Carrie S.
Charles is very professional, kind and friendly. My 9 year old is trying to learn Bohemian Rhapsody on his viola for a talent show and Charles has been very helpful, guiding him through the music with positive reinforcement. We tried a couple other instructors but it wasn't the right fit. Super pleased we found Charles. Look forward to many more lessons to come.

While a bit humbling Alex definitely helped me fix some glaring technical issues, particularly with the bow.

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.

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 …
