I can't say enough good things about Mr. Blackwell. He is an incredible teacher that gives you what you need at your level. If you are looking for a knowledgeable and patient instructor, Mr. Blackwell is for you! Going on 3 years and I am looking forward to the next 3 years.

Thank you!

Luther is an excellent and patient teacher. I’ve been playing guitar for nearly a decade, but have been self-taught and always neglected working on the fundamentals. With extra time on my hands during the COVID-19 pandemic, I decided to try online guitar lessons. Luther took me back to square one and has made sure I get everything perfect before moving on. It’s making me a much more consistent and disciplined guitarist, and I’m learning to read music for the first time. I wasn’t sure how useful remote guitar lessons would be before I started, but was pleased to discover that Luther makes it an excellent way to learn.

Peter has not only honed my daughter's previous skills, but introduced techniques and music theory that was completely new to her. Peter has sought out music that will challenge and interest my daughter specifically. We've been very pleased.
Brian
Peter is an extremely patient and knowledgeable teacher; it has been a privilege studying the piano and cello with him for the past 2 months. In that brief time, I have completed 16 of the 17 pieces in the first Suzuki book for cello! I have also enjoyed the piano exercises and repertoire he has assigned, which are technical but melodious. He has a great understanding of theory and technique; he is very personable and encouraging; and he was flexible and accommodating about the times and modes (in person and online) for my lessons. I recommend him wholeheartedly to other adult beginners like me and am grateful to be under his tutelage.

Peter is exceptional. His instruction is simple, straightforward and progressive

Fantastic teacher. Very patient and is so talented and knowledgeable.
Alex G.
Thank you for all the amazing lessons via online! Highly recommend Cello!!

I am a beginner cello student and started online lessons with Cello in February 2020. Prior to starting, Cello helped me find the perfect and affordable instrument and bow in local Los Angeles area. He walked me through step by step what to purchase, how to take care, and everything else. Then, he recommended to purchase beginner music and technique books. Everything was very organized and structured. He was so kind and went above and beyond.

If you are a beginner and scared to start online lesson, don’t worry. Cello will walk step by step with you. He is patient, very experienced, and a great teacher.

I look forward every week for our lessons! Thank you Cello!
Helen
Mr. Guo is my daughter’s cello teacher for about three years now and she loves it. She improved a lot and now in honors string ensemble at her school.

Mr. Guo was first recommended by my Colburn Community School mom friends where our kids take dance/vocal classes. He was already teaching several private students from this community and heard many great things. At the time, Mr. Guo was a Master of Music student at the Colburn School and we would all go to his amazing recitals! Absolutely great performance and musicality— it inspired my daughter greatly.

I highly recommend Mr. Guo’s lessons. He is kind, very polite, and very knowledgeable in teaching.

The cello has always been my greatest passion in life. I am originally from China and am currently pursuing my Master's degree in Cello Performance at Azusa Pacific University. I have been performed internationally, included Asia, the USA, and Europe. My first instrument was piano, but I soon discovered my passion for the Cello, which became my primary musical focus. I have a lot of patient and passion for teaching. I believe everyone can learn to play the cello with hard-working and proper training.

"Corey is the single biggest reason I stuck with music and was eventually accepted to several notable music conservatories including the Bienen School of Music at Northwestern University and Oberlin Conservatory. I began studying with Corey at the age of 9, and he made the entire learning process exciting and engaging. His enthusiasm for music is contagious for students at all levels, and his expertise in guiding his pupils through the extremely complex process of learning a stringed instrument is unparalleled. Corey brings decades of pedagogical and professional experience to each lesson, and is always eager to impart this wisdom on his students. I cannot recommend Corey enough, for students at any level he is the best teacher you will be able to find!"

Genevieve was very positive and encouraging to my son and really helped him improve his bowing and fingering technique. She was always very patient but pushed just enough so that my son felt challenged and proud of the continual improvement in his playing. She also was very organized and always started and ended lessons on time. We highly recommend Genevieve as a cello teacher!"

Jessica has been teaching cello classes for my 8th grade daughter who wanted to learn cello during summer and join school Orchestra team in good level. Jessica has been very professional, patient and always on time. She adjusts her teaching depending on the kids pace of learning.

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 …
