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.

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.

Very good instructor. She has the right temprament for me being an older student.
Tracey L.
She was very thorough..plus her style of teaching will definitely benefit me in the long run!!
Debbie N.
Jeanmarie helped me to learn the proper way to hold the cello and the bow. She watched carefully to be sure I maintained that throughout the lesson. I am pleased that she is going to be sure I learn to play the cello well to prevent injuries. She also gave me some very basic bowing and finger exercises to practice this first week so I begin to build correct muscle memory before I go on to working with sheet music.

Private Cello Teacher

Experienced cello teacher of 10 years! My lesson plan is simple : 1. we warm up with basic scales + finger exercises, 2. we focus on tone + proper technique, and 3. we play from a variety of solo, duets, and ensemble pieces (I prepare backing tracks to help w/ rhythm and timing... or play the parts myself). If the student is working on music for school orchestra, we can focus on that as well. You will learn what you want to learn at your own pace.

About Ryan

Experienced cello, drum, piano, and guitar player of 20 years. Has a MFA degree in music composition + a BFA in music performance. Recorded professionally for tv shows such as "Glee," "Entertainment Tonight," and "Extra." Also records for "Sonoton Recordings." Currently resides in Los Angeles, Cali

I could not ask for more in a teacher. Ryan is amazing in every way. He has been teaching my 4 year old son the drums for nearly a year. When my son started lessons, he was actually below the minimum age for students, but he shared a passion for music that Ryan was willing to cultivate and be patient with.

Ryan is versatile in his teaching methods, creative, open, patient. Teaching a young student, Ryan adjusted to teaching music reading fundamentals with colors and shapes. He also figured out ways to correct, critique and build all the while building a young child's confidence.

Ryan provides a written evaluation of our son annually and has him prepare for two public recitals a year. Ryan integrates modern technology into the lessons to quickly provide feedback and create customized beats and tempos to practice to.

Above all, Ryan smiles and laughs. He makes every lesson pleasant and we treasure him, truly.
Matthew K.
Awesome first lesson with Ryan, he teaches at whatever pace you learn best at.
Dat T.
Ryan is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I had a great time learning guitar from him. Make sure you tell him what your goals are so he can help you achieve them.

Online Cello Teacher

I have been studding strings from age 8, starting on violin. I switched over to cello when I turned 13 and received scholarships to potentially attend the University of Pacific in Stockton, CA. I instead studied cello at the University of California, Santa Barbara where I had the opportunity to perform in the university's symphonic orchestra and teach private lessons to college students as well. I have experience teaching from the Suzuki method, but consider myself to be a flexible educator and teach many methods according to the needs of the student.

Online Cello Teacher

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!

About Keats

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 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:

I am grateful for Mr. Keats as my piano teacher. He does an excellent job at teaching any style of music that I want to cover; he especially does well at explaining and is super understanding for teaching at whatever pace that you s

Very patient. Explained everything very well as I had forgotten most of the piano taken years ago. Reviewed everything to start teaching at my level. Gave some good tips and apps to help me study.

Keats is an excellent and professional teacher. He was always punctual and extremely pleasant. As an adult beginner, I felt very encouraged and challenged while learning cello from Keats. I would recommend him without reservation to anyone who wants a quality learning experience.

"In my opinion, having been an educator in the Isaac School District for many years, Mr. Quintana exhibits excellent teaching techniques and strategies to enable the learner to be successful. He is professional, prepared, courteous, and prompt. For the past 6 years, Mr.Quintana has been my cello instructor. The environment that he creates as an educator provides an excellent foundation for continued learning. Mr. Quintana's knowledge of string instruments and piano are superb."

"Victor was on time and very friendly. My daughter happily jumped right into playing.

The best review I can give is that this morning after the lesson, unbidden, she picked up her cello and practiced for the few minutes she had between breakfast and leaving for the bus. That is inspiration. What could be better that that?!"

"Ellen is wonderful. She's been playing cello for over a decade and received her degree from Berklee College of Music. Knowing that, I anticipated that she would be somewhat intimidating in our lesson together, but she was the exact opposite-- she was so down to earth, and she was very encouraging when I felt like I was not getting the hang of things in time. She's also very receptive to your needs/desires. We just barely crossed paths while she was in town, and I was merely hoping to get a feel for the instrument, so we had a very playful (but informative!) experience. I know that she also has a wealth of formal training, so no matter what your pace--she's your girl. She also has a cool band of her own, which you should check out!"

"Maria was my first private cello instructor and I studied with her for 2 years. She is an extremely kind and warm teacher who made every lesson very enjoyable and immensely educational. She was very open to my ideas as well as my wants and needs as far as playing repertoire and pacing. It is rare to be taught by a professional performer that is quite so active in the area they teach; Maria's experience performing professionally has obviously given her a perspective that is valuable to any of us who want to excel at an instrument. It is a joy to see her perform and learn from her that way as well. I and all of her students had the opportunity to get our own performing experience in her recitals, which were fun and important to my musical growth. I am grateful to have started my education in cello with Maria's instruction; I am much better off because of it."

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 …
