Private Cello Teacher

Experienced cello teacher available for eager students of all experience levels! I structure my lessons around what the students would like to learn, while building a strong foundation using traditional classical technique and repertoire. Specializing in classical and jazz, I typically use different methods for both depending on the students path. One being more audtiroally and the other using actual sheet music. If you are serious, I would love to help any way that I can.

Private Cello Teacher

As a violist and string enthusiast, my appreciation and knowledge of the cello runs fairly deep. I had studied and taught myself how to play the cello with the guidance of a professional cellist some many years ago, but I've always been eager to teach the cello to any willing student with a deep appreciation. Students can expect a curriculum catered to their needs and desires, whether they be to on the road to a professional musician or just the hobbyist and a teacher who is dedicated to their educational growth and desires.

She cancelled 20 minutes into the lesson. Very unprofessional.
Dalia
My lesson with Ashley was wonderful. She is very patient and great at explaining things to an adult beginner like me, and clearly very passionate about violin music and teaching. She was very easy to get in touch with after I set up the lessons. Thanks!
Kathleen M.
Ashley was very helpful to me. I was floundering. I am a brand new 'musician', still learning to read music. I would still be working with her, but I had to move suddenly. She was very encouraging and I hope to be able to continue lessons again with someone in my new location.

Great lesson. Received good feedback on technique.

I had a great class with Michael. He is extremely experienced in teaching and he has a very focused teaching strategy. Definitely take his class if you are interested in cello.
Yemi A.
I have been taking lessons with Michael for over a year now. I've taken lessons before with other instructors (though not in cello). Michael is one of the best instructors that I have ever had. He instructs and challenges you to get better, while at the same time being patient with your development. It has been a pleasure being a student of Michael.

My daughter took private lessons with Andrew for 3 years and he is absolutely fantastic! He is patient and really knows how to teach cello technique and musicality. He is brilliant and I highly recommend him. I am really sorry that he moved away to play with an orchestra in another state, but good for him. We miss him! He was awesome!
Regina G.
My son thinks that Andrew is an amazing instructor! Andrew is a terrific teacher and there is no one out there that can compare. Andrew is such a super, super teacher and I would highly recommend others for lessons with him.

Patient and Understanding

I'm always completely comfortable and feel relaxed with him teaching. He is always punctual and is good at reaching out if there are any problems with the scheduled lesson time. He is always patient and understanding when I make mistakes or don't understand what is explained. Also, he never gets frustrated with me when I don't do something suggested to me and is always calm. I have been getting lessons from him for over a year and I highly recommend him to others interested in guitar.

Kyle is a great piano teacher! He is very patient with my 12-year old son. Just yesterday he referred to him as “fun Kyle” because he teaches him small songs on the side that he can show friends and family or are for upcoming holidays. He’s always punctual and respectful of our family and home. I’m grateful to have found him!

"I started playing cello at 26 years old with absolutely zero musical experience of any kind. After 6 months of attempting to teach myself the cello, I decided I needed help and begun my journey to find myself a cello instructor. I was so fortunate to find Arlette! Arlette was abundantly patient with me, from my habit of asking too many questions to my very unpredictable availability. Before Arlette started teaching me music theory and how to play the cello, I never appreciated the value of having an instructor. After having taken lessons from her for nearly a year, I would simply say having a fine instructor like Arlette is a necessity. The first time I played a duet was with Arlette, and it was a moment in my life I am so thankful for and I will never forget! She is kind and consistent, very professional but also very personable which is a very hard thing to balance. She pushed me to excel without making me feel overwhelmed. I could go on forever about how great a cello instructor Arlette is so I will finish with this... If you are looking for a cello teacher look no further."

"Naseem taught my kids (5 and 9) the Suzuki Method over the past few years. Naseem is a very patient teacher, wonderful with kids and keeps them excited for their lesson! I tried different teachers in the past and my kids would not cooperate. I’m so grateful for finding Naseem! The best part is that he pushes them to improvise and introduces them to other genres such as jazz, middle Eastern music etc... my kids are always practicing and looking forward to their next lesson. Thank you Mr. A for sharing your passion!"

"In 10 months, Susanna has taken my 6th grader, a beginner, to acceptance into our region's youth symphony, and her school is putting her in 8th grade orchestra instead of 7th grade because she's so far advanced. Susanna accomplished this with the perfect balance of serious hard work and fun, done with a smile, kind words, and an uncanny ability to pinpoint what the student is able to improve at the right time. We're also starting younger brother on violin with Susanna in a couple of weeks, because she's great."

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 …
