Private Cello Teacher

When I just started my own private studio in Shanghai, I had only 3 students at first. but "A journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step". Since then I never stopped teaching cello. through all these years teaching in China and the US, my students' age ranged from 4 years old to 60. I have Bachelor and Master in Cello Performance and soon will hold a Doctoral degree in Music as well. I am sure I will make your cello study much easier. And let's enjoy the music together!

Michael has been teaching my 11yo cello as a beginner and we are having a great experience. Michael is patient, attentive and encouraging. Within a short time, she has learned so much and enjoys practicing for class. Michael is considerate and kind when dealing with kids and the online experience has been seamless. I highly recommend him!
Jerry M.
I am an early intermediate level cello player. At the outset of the year I had set some very specific goals that I hoped to achieve and set out to find a teacher that would help me achieve those. Michael has done just that. I have taken lessons now from Michael for about 6 months and cannot say enough good things about him. He is extremely knowledgeable. He is always well prepared, and ready to make progress on advancing my skills with the instrument. He is patient and ready to work within my own limitations. He is always encouraging and positive, and constructive in his critique. I would highly recommend Michael, whether you are a beginner or a seasoned cellist.

Michael is a great instructor as well as a kind soul. He offers an appropriate mix of encouragement, guidance, and correction. As an adult learner, I appreciate that he stretches me beyond my comfort zone,

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!

I have performed in renowned venues such as Carnegie Hall, John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Vienna Konzerthaus, Suntory Hall in Japan, and the National Concert Hall in Taiwan, I also worked with prestigious conductors including Carolyn Kuan from Hartford Symphony Orchestra, Valery Gergiev, Jean-Marie Zeitouni, Takacs Nagy from Verbier music festival, Peter Oundjian from Toronto Symphony, David Robertson, Ignat Solzhenitsyn, Marin Alsop.

My teaching experience dates back to my college days, as I began teaching private lessons part time 6 years ago, and have been consistently teaching students since then. Encouraging regular practice on a consistent schedule is one of the key points I like to emphasize for younger students, as it tends to help the student progress and gain a passion ...

Private Cello Teacher

Getting a solid foundation in technique is imperative for anyone wanting to learn the cello, no matter if the desire is to play for fun or to eventually join an orchestra. That is why I make it my goal as a teacher to establish the correct ways to have: good tone, proper posture, flexible bow hold, loose vibrato, and pain-free playing. All of my students that have graduated to university-level teachers have reported back that the teacher was happy with their foundation and they were not required to "move back" steps in order to gain additional technique.
I generally use the Suzuki and ABC books to get students started(which employ mainly classical pieces and folk songs), but I am always open to other genres that the student is interested in. If there is a specific piece a student would like to play, we'll go over what technique is required to get there and use alternate pieces and exercises to finally reach that goal.

About Jessica

I have 25 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 Sy

As an adult I decided one day to learn to play cello. Step 1: rent cello, step 2: find teacher. Fate smiled upon me and I discovered Gill at Blackstone Studios.

Now, over 3 yrs. later, I'm extremely impressed with Gill's ability to keep me continually progressing in my playing. Of course practicing helps too...go figure.

She always has a tip, technique, or exercise to smooth out problem areas. She understands the needs of an adult student and easily tailors my lessons as needed. I have also witnessed her teach very young students through high school students with equal aplomb.

GIll can teach, and also do. Listening to her play during lessons is inspiring but I've also heard as part of a trio playing music of such complexity my brain cell almost exploded. Very impressive! She is also a very pleasent and kind lady as well.

So if you are an adult looking for a new hobby or school student wanting to be the best cellist they can, I can not recommend Gill highly enough. She has taken me on a wonderful musical journey so far with no end in sight.

Thank you Gill!

What is the Suzuki Cello Method?

The Suzuki method, founded in 1945 by violinist Shinichi Suzuki as the Talent Education Movement, is one of the most enduring teaching methods, or pedagogies for young string players. Suzuki’s main goal for his music education system was to give students a “noble spirit,” which would instill respect and cooperation through his method. The method was brought to America in the 1960s by John D. Kendall, and today the Suzuki Association of the Americas instructs new teachers and studen …

What Are the Names of the Cello's Parts? A Closer Look

The string family has a unique history, and a very unique look. Modern instruments have elaborate carvings adorning on the top, inlaid purfling supporting the cello’s rich sound, and beautifully stained wooden bodies. There are also internal posts and sound bars which allow the body to function as an acoustic amplifier across the cello’s wide range. If you want to know the cello parts names and how the instrument works, read on before your next cello lesson to get ready! Head and Neck Like …

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 …
