While I certainly place emphasis on technical work and mastery, I also want all students to feel comfortable in expressing their individual voice and interests. I believe that it is incredibly important to encourage students to explore a number of creative avenues within music. Therefore, I am very open to having students explore music outside the classical canon in addition to experimenting with improvisation and composition. An additional component of my teaching style is finding unique and interesting ways to keep students motivated and teaching them how to effectively practice and learn on their own.

About Helen

My teaching philosophy is largely centered around the importance of individuality. The “one size fits all” approach is hardly ever adequate--every student has different needs, strengths, and challenges. While I certainly place emphasis on technical work and mastery, I also want all students to feel

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.

Lenna educates with patience, expertise, and humor. She was fantastic at turning my overly negative self-critiques into poignant and positive learning points. She helped me help myself, and consequently my cello playing got way, way better. Thanks Lenna!

Chialing is a truly amazing teacher! I am studying cello with her after taking nearly 10 years off from touching my cello. Chialing is extremely patient and always has advice on how to practice and better understand the cello. I feel very comfortable learning from Chialing and feel even more excited about learning music after each lesson.

Chialing came to our home for piano lessons for our two girls. They took to her immediately. She is skilled at dealing with young children and extremely warm. Her lessons are tailored to each child's ability. They get excited to practice what they have learned after she leaves.

Based on playing ability, I try to tailor a student's goals to their time available to practice and motivation. Just like with any craft, playing an instrument is a discipline that needs attention, and I want the best outcome the student feels that they can produce. We will have fun discovering the joys of learning music!

Hello! I am currently a college student in Lakeland, Florida at Southeastern University. I am in the process of working on my undergraduate degree in music performance with a concentration on cello. I primarily began my studies in piano before taking cello lessons a few years later. I am a teacher

Keats is a skilled and perceptive teacher. I am dealing with many beginner issues and he always has multiple suggestions and ways of explaining how to accomplish the techniques I am working to master.
I am an accomplished flutist but just love the cello so decided to take lessons. He truly seems to enjoy sharing his knowledge.
I feel so fortunate to have found Keats because he really cares about me as an individual although I am truly old enough to be his grandmother. Outside of our lessons, he has sent me links to recordings, a new bow which I have purchased and am thrilled with, and various other cello-related matters of interest to a beginning cellist.
He does not insist that there's only one way to do things and has studied with a variety of teachers himself. He comes from a musical family so is very knowledgeable about classical music. A true musician who understands the love of music.
Lastly, I want to recommend Keats because he has a very gentle, kind manner and praises my work when it is good. He encourages me through frustrations and sets reasonable goals at each lesson.
I am also a music teacher and would recommend him for a student of any age. I know that the relationship that develops between teacher and student is crucial to a student's progress, and Keats is a real and caring person in the lesson, not some drill instructor. I think he would be fabulous with children and certainly relates very well to adults. Give him a try!

Keats teaches my son online as we live in a different country. We’ve been very pleased with Keats. Here are some words from my son:

Mr. Carrion helped me immensely during my time with him, and I learned so much about how to be a great bass player. He taught me many things that I was not previously aware of and helped me with my college auditions. Overall, I had a really good time with him and he was a great help.

As a passionate cello player, I want my students to have fun but also really understand their instrument and the music they are playing! Students will learn their scales through the circle of fifths, shifting positions, vibrato techniques, music theory, and performing with an accompanist. They are expected to have fun but to work hard - it’s totally worth it!

About Melissa

I have been playing piano for 23 years and cello for 16 years. I love sharing music with others and seeing them grow to love music as well. I am currently a pianist for the KC Ballet’s ROAD program. I have a Bachelors of Music from Lindenwood University. I have been a piano accompanist for 7 years.

"Nicholas began as my son's cello instructor when he was 10, and we are now beginning our third year under Nicholas' instruction. He has a very patient, quiet manner while teaching, though it is common to hear chuckles coming from the room during the lesson. Nicholas is himself an excellent musician, but he has very realistic expectations for his students. My son has made tremendous progress on the cello in a short time. Originally, we were in the same city with Nicholas, so the lessons occurred in our home. Recently, we moved out of state, and are thrilled that we can continue lessons with him online. Some of the things I have especially appreciated about him are his punctuality, being prompt and timely in his communications with us, and his willingness to work out scheduling details with us. Highly recommend Nicholas!"

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 …

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 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’ …
