Private Cello Teacher

In my lessons, my primary focus is helping students learn cello at their own pace, and developing their love and appreciation for music! Cello can be challenging, but anyone can learn with the right guidance! I have a conservatory training, and years of experience teaching people of all ages how to play. Students will learn technique, music reading, scales and arpeggios, and basic music theory in a comfortable and encouraging environment!

I so appreciated my first Lesson with Nick! We had planned to meet in person, but because of the current quarantine had to have class online - and it was wonderful! He was encouraging and clear and was able to diagnose some of my bad habits and give me ways to get past them. He also generously shared resources and repertoire. I'm much looking forward to continuing with him - just what I needed both musically and to keep my spirits up!

Great first lessons. I have 2 boys, each learning a different instrument (violin & guitar), and Nick was great with them. Looking forward to the future lessons.

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.

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.

If you are an advanced student and want to further improve your operatic singing, then Mary is definitely an excellent teacher for the following main reasons:
1) Experienced - she is a talented singer herself who knows what to do to fix the problems.
2) Repertoire selection - she recommended many arias that were challenging, but super beneficial for developing my singing techniques.
3) Clear instruction - Mary recognises when you making good progress and we have a very constructive result during the lessons.
There are many more that can be listed... I just want to say that I feel lucky to study with Mary and highly recommend her to other singers who wish to develop his/her singing to the next level.
Triplett
We had a nice discussion about singing and set a goal to start practice. Looking forward to the next lesson.
Lynn Woodard
Mary is an extremely talented vocalist and a very gifted teacher. I came in with no training whatsoever and was comfortable with her immediately. She is constantly challenging me to stretch beyond my comfort zone, which has made a huge difference in my vocal range and my confidence. She is very knowledgable about the mechanics of singing and searches for just the right analogies for my untrained brain to get my "singing parts" into the correct position to the produce the best sound. She is also patient and encouraging. She really is amazing and I couldn't be happier with my lessons and progress. Highly recommend Mary!

Great teacher! Very encouraging and positive!
Justin
My name is Justin, and I've been tutored by Paul since October 2018. I came to him without any prior music experience and unsure if I could ever learn to play the guitar. I'm glad that I chose him as my tutor. He knows how to explain different concepts in a way that I can understand. That coupled with his eagerness for me to get better makes him an excellent teacher. Every time I attend his class I'm always motivated to improve. I would definitely recommend him to anyone trying to play an instrument.
Braylen W.
My son's first lesson with Paul went well. My son has ADHD and keeping his attention takes work. Even though my son had a meltdown during his lesson, Paul showed patience and continued to encourage him. After my son's first lesson, he was excited and told us how much he enjoyed drums.

"Excellent, excellent teacher

I've been taking cello lessons from Bijan for about 2 years now, and his instruction has caused me take a greater appreciation for music on the whole. Cello is my first instrument and I was worried that, as an adult player just starting out, I'd have to hunt around for an effective teacher. I was very, very lucky in getting Bijan as my teacher. His credentials are unmatched and his talent across multiple musical styles is amazing. Any question you have, from instrument choice to deep music theory, he has an answer for. He has also been incredibly patient with me, even when I seemed frustrated and ready to give up. I probably would have if it had not been for his encouragement and help. Bijan would absolutely be my first choice for anyone in the San Diego area wanting to learn music."

"Victor has the rare ability to both inspire and equip a budding musician. Often, a teachers may be enthusiastic but may lack in practical, effective techniques to enable a student to truly excell. There are also the cases in which an instructor has excellent info to share, but lacks the spark and fun needed for a child to truly benefit. Victor has both. He took our frustrated daughter who was convinced she could not do this thing called cello, and gave her both the tools to succeed and the drive to work. As a former music educator myself, I recommend him with my highest regards."

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 …
