I am an emotive cellist with two decades experience. I have toured internationally performing my original works including London, Paris, and Berlin. As a member of the Pierce Quartet I regularly arrange and perform music for weddings and other special occasions. I love sharing classical music with all levels of students. Lessons with me are calm, meditative experiences where we use peaceful techniques to enter into the heart of music.

Awesome coaching on what I was doing wrong. Lenna showing me how to hold my hand correctly makes it so much easier to find my notes.
Dora
Lenna was very clear and her improvisation at the end of the lesson was fun!
Melanie Marianne Cantwell
I grew up thinking my hands were too small to play piano, but QUICKLY LEARNED OTHERWISE when learning efrom Lenna. She takes time to understand your goals and your experience (with the instrument you're learning and with music in general!) and creates a learning strategy that feels custom to help you acheive those goals. She's got undoubtable compassion for her students and passion for the craft; she gives recommendations on ways to work through challenges that she identified to be common (like piano hand independence!). She cares about her students, as students, and as people. Would definitely recommend her lessons.

From the foundations of technique to musical fluency and interpretation, I guide my students through the process of building freedom and confidence as well-rounded musicians. Mastering the instrument physically is as important as having a personal, emotional connection to the music we play, and understanding the workings of musical communication allows us to create those magical moments for ourselves and our listeners. Through my studies with renowned pedagogues such as Areta Zhulla and Joel Krosnick of the Juilliard Quartet, chamber music guru Merry Peckham, and world-renowned violinist Itzhak Perlman, I've developed a unique method for acquiring both effortless technique and the tools to make sense of any piece of music. I believe that every student can make incredible leaps in their musical ability as they discover their own powers of examination, exploration, and determination.

I have extensive experience with classical as well as contemporary music theory, history, and ...

Daniel is the best! His love for music is infectious and I feel so lucky to have found him. He is patient and supportive, enthusiastic and knowledgeable and not to mention a brilliant cellist, which goes without saying. 10/10 recommend him for anything.
Anna Adelman
Daniel has been teaching my 12 year old daughter cello for the last 3 years. He is a very attentive and patient teacher, with an excellent approach to his students. My daughter loves to go to his lessons, and has even enjoyed the Zoom lessons with Daniel over the last year. He has a lot of musical knowledge and has a delightful personality. I highly recommend him.
Sam
Daniel is an amazing teacher! I have been taking cello lessons from him for the last 5 years. I'm an older student (41 y.o), and started out with little musical experience and only a dream to play the cello. Daniel is so patient and supportive, with the most pleasant demeanor you can imagine. His musical knowledge runs deep, and his eclectic approach to playing and teaching the cello touches on a variety of musical genres, including classical, jazz, folk, and other styles. With his natural talent for teaching, Daniel is very sensitive to my stumbling blocks and difficulties in the lessons, and is so helpful with his clear instructions in how to break down and solve the problems. Most of all, his lessons and wisdom are very inspiring, and I am always looking forward to our next meeting. I wholeheartedly recommend Daniel as a music teacher.

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 ...

As a French student, I can tell that Concetta is perfectly adapting to my way of learning. I know music for a long time but I'm a beginner with viola. I thought it would be a very hard exercise to practice but with Concetta's advices, I constantly and rapidly improve my technique. Five stars is the minimum I can give !
Bryan P.
Concetta is a wonderful instructor - prior to my lesson I was feeling nervous - not sure what to expect, not feeling worthy, etc. - she quickly put me at ease and we had a very productive 1st lesson - well worth the investment of my time and money
Joseph
I haven’t ever enjoyed a music lesson as much as I do with Concetta.
Concetta is warm, charismatic, and truly loves what she does which inspires me to keep going.
It’s the hour that I look forward to the most each week!

Catherine has been a terrific violin instructor for both my 14 year old daughter and 13 year old son. She is very passionate and methodical in keeping them motivated and engaged in learning the violin. She has been great and the kids love her as a teacher. I highly recommend Catherine for anyone considering an online violin teacher for their teenage kids.

Amy O.
My daughter has resumed her violin playing now that she has lessons with Catherine. She had stopped for a year, and after a few lessons her tone started to sound just like it was when she left off. She improves with each virtual lesson, but most importantly she really enjoys them. I also appreciate that we can schedule lessons
at intervals other than weekly. Thank you, Catherine!

Great with children very understanding knows a lot of information willing to help you succeed in success! Would recommend to anyone.

What are the Hardest Cello Pieces? How to Get from Beginner to Advanced Player

As a beginner I often told myself I would know I am a really great cellist when I could play Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee at full speed. To my young ears, this simply had to be one of the hardest cello pieces with its high range, chromaticism, and famously fast tempo. As my musical career continued I worked on these and other skills to reach a point I could begin learning the piece confidently, and it was only a matter of time before I achieved my goal. Of course, this wasn’ …

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 …

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 …
