Claire makes challenging pieces more helpful by giving fun ways to learn them. She is a great instructor!

Claire makes sure that she answers any questions that I have. She goes at my pace. She's a great teacher! She is so experienced and patient.
Christy
Taking lessons on line is sometimes challenging; for instance, the instructor is talking but sometimes her words become garbled, like watching television and the picture and sound fades in and out.

I thought the teacher wanted me to just memorize the one section (the tune); she wasn't clear the first time (the first lesson) on memorizing the tune for playing All of the exercises without looking at the music notes. So, yesterday's lesson wasn't as good as I had hoped it would be.

What an amazing teacher! My 10-yr daughter has been taking lessons with Amy for over a year. Amy is consistently positive and encouraging. She is always prompt and well-prepared, and she provides helpful resources. We were a little hesitant about doing online lessons, but Amy is attentive to posture, bow hold, tone, and volume. It's hard to imagine that an in-person lesson could be any better. I've been very pleased with Amy as a teacher, the online lesson format, and our daughter's progress. My daughter's growing love for cello is evidence that Amy is a talented musician and instructor.
Roni
We adore, Miss Amy! She is incredibly competent and even more incredibly loving! She teaches with nothing but positive energy. It's easier to find errors and note them. I can't even attempt to work at finding all the good in some of our lesson time that Amy can find! She finds those tiny "correct" and "right" things and that leaves our two sons energized and feeling confident about what they are able to accomplish - even when the difficulty of the song has discouraged them. Amy always finds a way of putting in a section that makes them shine.

This is our fourth year with online lessons from Miss Amy. I mention this all the time but we have had our sons complimented and one mentor in our local symphony even asked told our son that his playing has improved with his online lessons.

We can never ask for a better teacher. Miss Amy is hands down one of our family's most favorite people in the entire world.

Thank you, Miss Amy for being so positive, for being incredibly forgiving, loving, interested and letting our boys learn at their pace. You have been instrumental in their ability to feel proud of the work they are able to do in music.

If you are worried that you may not find a good fit for online lessons please give Miss Amy a try! She is able to get so much learning across the distance that it makes us feel she is sitting in the room next to us!

I went in hoping to relearn the basics of cello. I have a lot of experience, but my fundamentals, primarily, how I held my bow and cello, were extremely poor. Cello tutors that I've had in the past have struggled with the awkward place that would put my cello skills if you thought of progressing skill as being in a linear fashion, but she's been great. She's did a really good job at tailoring her lessons to my specific skillset and abilities. Would recommend.

-$25 per 30 minute Lesson
-I teach adult beginner cellists who are looking to learn to play the cello at home and/or in church services.
-All students should have a cello, a cello case, a bow, a rockstop, rosin, a music stand, a mind eager to learn, and a heart to praise the Lord.

About myself:
I have been playing the cello in my church for the past 7 years. While almost every church has guitarists, and a pianist, it is more rare to see a church with a cellist. I believe the cello can offer a unique richness to worship services. I want to do my part in teaching more Christians to play the cello.
Learning to play an instrument in church takes instruction, practice, patience, and the Holy Spirit.
I look forward to teaching you.

Private Cello Teacher

Having 10 years of experienced cello teaching, I feel very comfortable helping my students understand the foundations of cello technique. I graduated with a Bachelors of Music from the music conservatory Cleveland Institute of Music, and got my Masters in Music from Northwestern University's Bienen School of Music.

In addition, I completed a 2 year rigorous Suzuki Technique Pedagogy Program where I am now certified to teach all 10 levels of the cello books. I am confident in explaining any questions a student may have. I love to make practicing a game, so that way we are developing the proper skills but also challenging ourselves while having fun! Even I can understand that practicing can get tiresome and dull at times!

As a traveling musician who has performed all over the world, I feel it is important for students to appreciate all types of music. While classical training and technique are absolutely crucial to the beginning stages of a student's development, I like to show ...

Wonderful!

Samantha D. is wonderful. My kids play so well for only 1 year'sworth of lessons. I would highly recommend her to anyone! I am blownaway by the music that comes out of the Piano from a 7 and 11 year old.My 11 year old signed up for her first music competition at school. Ifyou told me one year ago I would have girls playing a piano, I would notbelieve you. I truly thought they would quit after a couple of months.Not the case. They are musically talented and still love it. Thanks toSamantha D! They are now thriving in the in-school music program.Thank you, TakeLessons, for filtering out the best teachers. When achild has a small window of interest, you have to grab it the rightway...the wrong teacher would not have given me these results.

My granddaughter, Katelynn, enjoys her trumpet lessons with Samantha. Samantha is caring, seems to enjoy teaching & has patience; which is needed since Katelynn needs a little extra attention learning things
MaureenC
Highly Recommend her!

My daughters (10, & 6) have only had three lessons with Samantha! They love it. Her nature is kind and welcoming. She can tell how much they can handle so doesn't overwhelm them with too much theory or pieces to play. She strikes a nice balance. My 10 year old started composing her own song when she became bord with the beginner book! Samantha has added to this excitement and changed her teaching style to match my daughters learning style. My daughter was beaming! Samantha has taught her how to take the next pieces of theory and add it to her song. She also ordered music my daughter enjoys like Selena Gomez. My 6 year old is excited every week and doesn't want to be late. My husband and I thought this would be just another thing to start and quit. So far they are going strong!

Private Cello Teacher

I have been studding strings from age 8, starting on violin. I switched over to cello when I turned 13 and received scholarships to potentially attend the University of Pacific in Stockton, CA. I instead studied cello at the University of California, Santa Barbara where I had the opportunity to perform in the university's symphonic orchestra and teach private lessons to college students as well. I have experience teaching from the Suzuki method, but consider myself to be a flexible educator and teach many methods according to the needs of the student.

She is both patient, and supportive; she is highly adept at finding what works for the individual, and personalizes instruction based on what you need to improve. She is also very accommodating, and understanding when there are scheduling changes. I look forward to my lessons every week; they are so much fun!"

Although I was skeptical on online lessons, Nicholas has already shown me some bad habits i have and how to break them and we're already moving on to some hard stuff.

Is There Such Thing as a Left-Handed Cello? How to Play as a Leftie

Handedness is the sense that one hand is more dexterous or coordinated compared to the other. Researchers usually determine an individual’s handedness by observing which hand is used to write or eat. Although the causes of handedness are not fully understood, about 10% of the population is left handed or ambidextrous according to Dr. M.K. Holder, a researcher and specialist on handedness. Many left handed students wonder if they will need a specialized instrument in order to learn to play …

Cello Thumb Position: Where to Place Your Fingers & Hands

Cello thumb position is one of the big leaps of technique for advancing cellists and is one of the skills that sets more advanced students from the intermediate. This new technique opens up the higher ranges of the instrument and allows us to play more advanced solos and etudes. This technique is not something you should rush into though! Make sure to take things slowly at first and master the basic concepts before moving on.  When Should You Focus on Your Cello Thumb Position? There have to …

Is My Cello Too Small? How to Know You've Found the Right Fit

At some point, your young cellist will grow out of their instrument. Growing out of an instrument is an awkward time for everyone involved and it is not something that happens suddenly. More often than not, finding that it is time to upgrade to a larger instrument is a slow realization that something is wrong in the musical force. If you can consult a professional, please do so! This decision is beneficial for the long run although it presents its own challenges upon the switch.  What Cell …
