Private Cello Teacher

Although I mainly sing now, I was originally a violinist and played all through college in professional orchestras, quartets and even as a soloist.

As a professional Music Educator, I have run String Programs in various International Schools among many other instrumental ensembles. I've conducted student orchestras & built many programs from scratch. Please see the links in my profile of the beginner orchestras as well as my playing!

Although I do not play professionally anymore, I still play very well, and am a perfect teacher for a beginner and intermediate student. I know how to get students started quickly and with confidence. Choose me to jump start yourself or your child.

I think my biggest strength as a strings teacher is helping this tedious time as a beginning violinist be fun and useful. My students really enjoy their lessons. I also have a lot of experience online and anticipate all of the normal issues (tuning, instrument care, etc;)

Simone
I have had a wonderful time training with Mary over the past couple of weeks. She's been very patient with me during our lessons, and she is very helpful with information in and out of the lessons.
I was hesitant to take some lessons at first because I hadn't sung for a while. There was a point when I was in a choir group in school, I was passionate enough to compete against other schools. But after I graduated, I wasn't able to find time to further practice my singing skills. Signing up to take lessons with her has restored my voice a lot, as well as teach me new things to make my voice more clear. I've had a wonderful time learning from Mary and hope to take more lessons with her in the future. For anyone looking for a professional, serious chance to train your voice for the better, Mary would be your best option.

I love playing and teaching this awesome instrument, and I'm so excited to share that with you. I strive to make lessons engaging, positive, progress-oriented, and personalized. My teaching style is as slow as you need, as fast as you can go. Technique should always serve music, so we'll focus on creating art and telling the story that you want to tell.

Lessons are open to anyone; even if you don’t have a cello yet! I have worked with beginning students learning the basics of reading music to advanced players & colleagues looking for a careful ear. For learners under 10, I recommend 30-45 minutes. For all other players, there's no time limit; I love to go into details and can work as long as you want! For multiple lessons a week, discount packages are available. Congratulations on taking an amazing first step into learning the cello, and I look forward to meeting you in our first lesson.

Sara
My 12 year old son has been taking lessons with Claire online for a couple of months. He had been playing a few years in school but never had an individual lesson. She is helping him create some new habits while improving his technique and musicianship. She is very encouraging and supportive (and fun!). Looking forward to seeing how he progresses in the future!

I teach beginner cello primarily using the Suzuki books, but supplement with other materials when needed. My students work on scales and rhythm constantly to improve their tone and musicality as well as technique. I teach classical, religious, fiddle, and more. I also teach group ensembles, trios, quartets, and I work with students on their school orchestral and audition pieces.

I can help the student practice and learn their way around the cello in an efficient manner. This means that I will be helping with intonation and other technique by giving exercises for the challenging passages. Lessons will be customized according to the goal of the student. Sharing my knowledge in cello and music is a passion and a goal of mine and I would love to help reach your goals.

While a bit humbling Alex definitely helped me fix some glaring technical issues, particularly with the bow.

Claudia
Peter has exceeded my expectations, I look forward for my lesson every week. I honestly can say He is the best teacher I’ve ever had. I am a 44 yo violin beginner student who has had 5 teachers in the last 6 years, I didn’t learn much with them, this been said, with Peter in just 3 months I feel I have learned more than my other teachers. Peter is so, so patient and extremely professional. I am very pleased to have found such a wonderful teacher.

Peter is always on time, patient with beginners, and gives valuable guidance.

Online Cello Teacher

I've taught cello for the last 12 years, and try to infuse the same enthusiasm into my students as I experienced in my journey to where I am today. I use both the Suzuki method books and the Applebaum String Builder books to start with beginners, depending on level and experience, with an emphasis on music reading. After that, the student's progress will dictate the best route to follow.

About Benjamin

In my years of teaching, I have developed an individual approach with each student, young or old, according to different needs and learning styles. I believe it is never too early or too late to begin learning, and it is my hope that music making through this instrument will be as enjoyable and pas

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 …
