I had a great experience because Catherine is an amazing instructor.
She taught lessons with a high degree of professionalism and care. As a novice, I was able to learn a lot because Catherine was patient and attentive to my learning style.

My two oldest children (one more advanced in piano than the other) began taking lessons with Catherine just this year. They have both shown significant improvement and love her as an instructor. They also look forward to practicing in between lessons. We could not be happier.

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.

About Ashley

I am currently a junior at Ramapo College studying music education but I am no foreigner to teaching. I have been teaching for some years now with general ages ranging between 3 to 25, in the violin, viola and cello. I have also taught music theory from a beginner's standpoint to a college sophom

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.

Online Cello Teacher

Help them reach their goals as musicians through the teaching of fundamental skills needed to play the cello, tailoring the lesson plans according to every students’ needs and desires as a musician/future leader. Music is a form of communication and an outlet for emotions we cannot put into words. I want to enable you to play all styles of music and for the instrument to become an extension of your voice.

As a cellist, I perform and record in various venues throughout the country, with various chamber groups ranging from duos to symphonic orchestras. I premiere various contemporary works by composers and help promote their work on social media. I give private recitals and also volunteer to perform in nursing homes, jails and foster homes to help share and promote music to places not easily accessible. I teach private lessons to students of all ages and abilities, helping them reach their goals and to help empower them to become movers and shakers in our society.

Online Cello Teacher

I love playing and teaching the cello, and I'm so excited to share that with you. I make lessons fun and engaging, and you'll leave feeling positive and focused on progress. I believe that the technique should serve the music, so we'll always focus on creating art and telling a story. Cello playing mirrors life, so what we do in the practice room will have much larger applications than you might anticipate! From beginning students learning the basics to advanced players who need a push in the right direction, I aim to help you improve quickly and have a great time doing so.

About Claire

Hi there! I’m a musician working in the NYC area, frequently flying to Florida to perform with the Sarasota Orchestra and the Sarasota New Music Ensemble.

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!

Online Cello Teacher

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.

"My daughter was looking for a cello teacher but we could not find anyone local that would fit her schedule. After reading several reviews we decided to try Jessica Greenly, even though I wasn't entirely sure if the online lesson model would work for someone who had never played the cello before. I was happily surprised after the first couple of lessons to see how Jessica was patient and engaging. My daughter has made great progress with Jessica and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great cello teacher. I should also mention that Jessica has been also very accommodating and willing to work with us to manage eventual changes in schedule when we needed it. Thank you so much Jessica."

"Rob is very knowledgable with regard to the cello--he and my 16 year old son hit it off immediately! He asked my son what he wanted to work on and then they spent the next 45 minutes working on those things. After the lesson, we worked out a continuing schedule of classes for the next few months. We are very happy with Rob as a tutor for my son and equally happy with TakeLessons!"

"My son had a very positive experience studying cello with Genevieve for two years before she moved to a new city for a job opportunity. We would have loved to continue studying with her! 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!"

"I really enjoyed my lessons with Peter, he was professional and kind as I took on a new adventure in learning cello and reading music as and adult. Skype was a wonderful option since I couldn't find any local instructors. There was a delay in sound at times so we would accidentally talk over eachother or I didn't know what was being asked to play, but we worked it out ans overall I would say it's worth it and would recommend Peter."

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 …
