Nicolas R.

Sherman Oaks, CA

My students should expect a well-rounded education on cello involving technical studies, playing in a variety of styles including, playing solo works, and having a great time!

About Nicolas

Hello there!

I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and raised in Miami, FL. I started my musical career at the age of 8, singing in chorus, playing the recorder, and shortly afterwards moving to the guitar, and the violin.

When I was 15, I was nominated for a James L. Knight Award in Music, and I performed as a violin soloist with the Miami Beach Symphony Orchestra, and the Greater Miami Youth Symphony playing Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 3 in G major. One of my most memorable experiences when I was a kid! In high school, I formed my own string quartet and we would perform all over
the South Florida community especially at hospitals and for the elderly. At 16 years old, I was also given an internship with the New World Symphony, conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas, for about 2 years. During this time, I was able to take lessons from master violinists such as Marc Thayer and Glen Cherry. During this time, I was given the opportunity to perform with the New World Symphony at 17 years old for pops concert conducted and performed by Chuck Mangione in El Doral, FL.

I later on accepted a scholarship for violin performance at the University of Miami for my Bachelor of Music, and earned my Master of Music from Florida State University. I also taught string orchestras for 10 years at Ruth K. Broad Bay Harbor K-8 Center, South Florida Youth Symphony as conductor (and now composer!), and conductor of the Greater Miami Youth Symphony. I was appointed Assistant Conductor of the Alhambra Orchestra for two seasons under the guidance of my high school orchestra teacher, Mr. Reginald Nicholson (1947-2011). It was here where I was able to work on my compositions, orchestrations, and conduct a fine group of musicians.

I now live in sunny Los Angeles, in the Sherman Oaks area, and I'm loving the new change. I am eager to share my knowledge with new students on various subjects such as learning a string instrument to learning a different language. Please feel free to ask me any questions.

I am looking forward to getting to know you and your goals for learning!
____________________________________________________

LESSON DETAILS
I have been teaching music as an adult, certified teacher since I was in college, but have done teaching as early as 15 years old.

I will help you create a fantastic technical base so you will be able to play with ease as your skill level develops, all while keeping the lessons fun and engaging.

MUSIC STUDIO
Piano, Violin, Guitar, Music Stand, General Teaching Aids, Recording Equipment.

TRAVEL EQUIPMENT
I can provide a music stand and basic materials but the student is expected to have their own instruments and to buy the music I recommend. I can recommend various vendors/shops where you can buy the ideal instrument for your lessons.

EXPERTISE
I am classically-trained musician that also specializes in Tango performance, Latin/Jazz, Rock, and a variety of other styles. I believe that training in the classical aesthetic will create a firm, solid foundation to crossover into other areas listed above. With a good dose of technical exercises, scales, and a variety of repertoire, my students always turn out well-rounded, ready to tackle almost any kind of music they wish to learn.

Thank you for stopping by and let me know what you would like to learn!

Nick has been my nine-year old daughter's violin instructor for a little over a year. Not only has she made tremendous progress with her playing, she has had a great time during the lessons. Nick will challenge her when he feels she is ready, but will also slow down if necessary to review, to make sure she is using proper techniques and developing as a musician. My daughter is fortunate to have such a talented musician and composer as her violin teacher.

You cannot find a better Instructor. Nick is very professional and he pushes you, even when you feel you can't. He makes it fun and educational. I will continue to take Nick classes. Although I started late with this passion, Nick has made the journey stress free.

Nick is the perfect blend of toughness and encouragement to get the most out of my 9-year-old's musical abilities. My daughter has taken private cello lessons with him for a year now. In that time, she has grown tremendously, both musically and through the sense of achievement that she feels while hearing herself get better week after week. Nick has played a vital role in this musical and personal growth.

Jessica G.

Pasadena, CA

Cello lessons in my studio, at your home, or on-line.

About Jessica

I have 20 years of playing experience along with a Bachelor's degree in Cello Performance. I was the section leader of my university's orchestra as well as a full-scholarship member of the university quartet. As a professional gigging musician, I have played with Il Divo, Mario Winans, La Jolla Symphony, Doctor's Symphony, Porta Caeli Chamber Players, and the quartet La Dolce.

I am a member of MTAC (Music Teacher's Association of California) and can sign my students up for Certificate of Merit. This is a music study program with an annual evaluation and written assessment. Stand-out stu
dents will be invited to play at the Branch Recital.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons differ slightly depending on the student. In general, it starts with scales for intonation or working on vibrato, moves on to an etude or exercise, and culminates with work on a piece of music. But not every student works well with this method, so I will add in some musical worksheets and ear training games for those that require lessons with more variety.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can come to your home to teach. I will bring all necessary method books and teaching materials.

Tara A.

South Pasadena, CA

I've been teaching cello for 8 years, and teach all ages and all levels. I am Suzuki trained, and am committed to finding solutions through open communication. It is imperative that the student, teacher, and parent are on the same page.

I tailor each lesson to each individual student, and bring awareness to the student's communication style. I teach students how to hold the cello and bow sustainably, how to play with ease and comfort, music theory and history, and an overall aural vocabulary.

About Tara

Tara Atkinson graduated from Lawrence University’s Conservatory of Music with a Bachelors Degree in cello performance. During her studies there, she was awarded the opportunity to play with acclaimed faculty Wen-Lei Gu and Anthony Padilla for a live radio broadcast in Chicago. Growing up in LA, she has studied with Rachael Lonergan, Pam Devenport, Tanya Carey, and John Walz.

She has been teaching for over 8 years, and has taken Suzuki training regularly. She is passionate about reaching a broad and diverse audience. She is an active performer, recording artist, and collaborator. She is an a
ctive member of the Suzuki of the Americas and the American String Teachers Association. She maintains a studio of students from age 3 to adult in South Pasadena, and makes soap and gardens in her spare time.

Tara is a talented cellist, committed teacher, and generally awesome human being to have your children learning music from! I have known Tara for nearly a decade and have had the privilege to play next to her, observe her excellent preparation for recitals and concerts, and see the joy that teaching brings her as she's grown in her Suzuki training in recent years.

She has a warm, rich tone and relaxed technique that any student would be lucky to emulate. And most importantly she has found a great balance in connecting with her students while also pushing them to become their own best teachers through excellent practice habits and problem solving skills. If you're in South Pasedena, look no further - Tara is your teacher!

Not only is Tara Atkinson a wonderful person, she is also a fantastic musician. I have had the honor of playing beside her in multiple different ensembles and it is obvious that her intoxicating love for the cello, goes beyond the music. Her teaching, much like her playing, comes from within and is easily activated in others. She has an abundance of knowledge which she articulates clearly and efficiently while also having good time management and organizational skills. If you want to learn to play the cello, find another teacher. If you want to learn to LOVE the cello, she's the perfect match for you.

Tara is amazing! My 13 year old daughter absolutely loves her. Tara relates to her students on a personal level and creates an atmosphere of collaboration and creativity that my daughter finds very motivating. Her playing has grown exponentially under Tara's tutelage. Tara is a consummate professional and holds her students to high standards while always encouraging and inspiring them. We couldn't have found a more gifted musician and teacher and couldn't recommend her more highly!

Isaiah G.

Los Angeles, CA

I want my students to get Joy from Music and be able to have the special skills needed to be a healthy and successful musician. Lots of emphasis on technique but also personally use alternative styles and FX with my cello to bring the instrument into a modern context. I want my students to also enjoy the music they are playing so I often arrange modern tunes of their choosing for the instrument. I also teach a variety of other styles including Jazz and Hip hop and I'm an active songwriter!

About Isaiah

I'm a professional Cellist and Session Player, with over 15 years teaching experience. I believe first and foremost that Music should bring joy to a student's life and at the end of the day be able to provide them with a sense of well being and happiness that they can take further into their life and out into the world. I typically start using the Suzuki Method for beginners and try to incorporate easy versions of songs (Popular, rock, anything) that the student both enjoys listening to and would like to play.
Rock On!

Working with Isaiah was a great experience. As a student interested in different methods and styles of playing, he listened to me and was flexible in providing both a pedagogy of classical and nontraditional modes of playing. He's flexible even in scheduling, willing to schedule an emergency lesson online when I had issues before a performance.

Isaiah Gage is a wonderful, inspiring teacher! My son has been studying with him since last year and has developed splendidly as a cellist. In his sessions, Mr. Gage encourages creativity and is very supportive of students' musical pursuits. It is a great experience for my son to have this opportunity to learn from a working professional who travels the globe to perform.

Isaiah was a perfect instructor for my son, age 8-10 at the time. My son was not the most enthusiastic player, but Isaiah was able to motivate him with interesting aspects of the cello and lots of encouragement, while at the same time working on fundamentals. His playing improved dramatically over the time Isaiah worked with him. We would have gladly continued with Isaiah except we both moved away. I recommend him without reservation - he is excellent with children.
