Aloha! I'm Mr. B, a former public school orchestra teacher turned mailman. In 2018 my family had the wonderful opportunity to relocate to the island of Maui where I took a position as a letter carrier with USPS. Now that I'm settled, I'm excited to get back to teaching cello. I have 4 years of public school instruction teaching 5th-12th grade orchestra and 7 years of private instruction on cello. I have played cello for the University of Evansville, the University of Findlay, the University of Southern Indiana, Heidelberg University, The Firelands Symphony, The Bowling Green Symphony, and the Croswell Opera House. I have a relaxed, realistic teaching style that is student-centered and rooted in Suzuki's Every Child Can philosophy. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education, Cum Laude, from Eastern Michigan University and have completed training on Suzuki Cello Books 1 & 2.

An experienced performer and teacher, I have been teaching privately since 2014. I am a graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music and a former member of the Indianapolis Symphony. I usually work with intermediate and college students, but I have also worked with beginners.

I am currently an Artist in Residence at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel in Belgium and have an active performance career, which is why I now primarily teach online. My teaching philosophy relies – as it did with my own professors – in sharing my personal connection with the music and giving guidance that will both make you a more solid player technically, as well as a more capable and expressive musician.

I use the same approach, regardless of whether you are pursuing music as a career or you're doing it just for the love of it (although I do also give advice on navigating the academic and professional landscape to those who want it). My main goal at the end of the day, is to help my students find a deeper ...

When I first went to Mr. Mowitz, I hoped to improve my cello technique above all else. As a result, Mr. Mowitz prescribed me a customized list of repertoire to practice that would help me focus on technique including the Popper etudes, the Bach suites, and the Cossman exercises. However, to ensure that our lessons would not purely be technique-based, Mr. Mowitz helped me understand the musical beauty behind more lyrical pieces such as the Boccherini cello concerto or the Saint Saens cello concerto while also demonstrating the techniques we'd been practicing in application to these concertos. Mr. Mowitz never assumes a fully comprehensive understanding of cello technique and musicality even for his intermediate-advanced students (which I would have considered myself as when I started to learn from him) and thus always has something new to teach as much as he reminds his students of the importance of certain fundamentals like a relaxed body when playing. I would say with full confidence that my cello playing significantly improved under Mr. Mowitz. His teaching helped me gain access by audition to advanced musical opportunities such as performing in the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra and participating in the Snitzer Quartet in the Settlement Music School Advanced Study Program. These opportunities, in turn, and the musical "arts supplements" for cello that I eventually made furthermore helped me gain admission into schools including Harvard and Stanford, on what I would consider was largely a technical base taught to me by Mr. Mowitz. I truly hope that more people are able to experience the blessing of Mr. Mowitz's teaching!
Aaron
Zachary is a fantastic cello teacher, I would highly recommend him to students of all levels. He is incredibly patient, and his passion for music teaching and performance is very infectious. He is very good at communicating nuanced ideas, both technical and musical, and can demonstrate them with ease. It’s been a great pleasure working with him!
Anna
Such an insightful and caring teacher!
I learned how to better structure my practice and improved drastically over just a few lessons. A very kind person and fantastic cellist. Highly recommended!

Shannon has worked with me for years, as my nutrition/fitness/strength trainer and my private music instructor! I love her! She is so patient, kind and knowledgeable. She cares and only wants to help me be better at everything I do! And she is always there to help even between sessions. She's all in!

Private Cello Teacher

Getting a solid foundation in technique is imperative for anyone wanting to learn the cello, no matter if the desire is to play for fun or to eventually join an orchestra. That is why I make it my goal as a teacher to establish the correct ways to have: good tone, proper posture, flexible bow hold, loose vibrato, and pain-free playing. All of my students that have graduated to university-level teachers have reported back that the teacher was happy with their foundation and they were not required to "move back" steps in order to gain additional technique.
I generally use the Suzuki and ABC books to get students started(which employ mainly classical pieces and folk songs), but I am always open to other genres that the student is interested in. If there is a specific piece a student would like to play, we'll go over what technique is required to get there and use alternate pieces and exercises to finally reach that goal.

About Jessica

I have 20 years of playing experience along with a Bachelor's degree in Cello Performance. I was the section leader of my university's orchestra as well as a full-scholarship member of the university quartet. As a professional gigging musician, I have played with Il Divo, Mario Winans, La Jolla Sy

Private Cello Teacher

Nice to meet you! My name is Eunice and I am a cello teacher. I received my bachelor and master degree in cello performance at the New England Conservatory of Music, and am currently pursuing my doctorate degree in cello performance at Indiana University. I am a teaching artist for the Boston Philharmonic teaching artist program where I teach elementary and middle school, and adult students in group settings, private lessons, as well as orchestra sectionals. I am also a part of the music program “Teach to Learn” as a cello mentor where I have virtually connected and taught cello to a student from Syria.

I will help you develop technique, musicality, and rhythmical skills that will make way for a freedom of expression. Solid technique is necessary for one to make music. The more tools one has the more variety and dimensions the music has. This will be done through emphasis and practice of scales, etudes, cello method books, as well as caprices for students who are more advanced.

"I've had something like 6 or 8 lessons with Chris so far and he's awesome. If you're not sure what to work on he'll come up with a great "standard" curriculum for you, but if you have particular interests or tastes he tailors your lessons accordingly - which keeps you motivated and makes practicing fun. He's got a huge range and can easily switch between styles if you have diverse interests. He's also cool about letting you decide how much focus you want to put on theory and learning to read music, so you never feel like you're just grinding through anything in order to get to the fun stuff. He's also just a really nice, funny dude so lessons are enjoyable from start to finish. I especially like the games he uses to teach various techniques/sight reading/improving your ear, etc. Really glad I ended up taking lessons with Chris, can't recommend him enough. :-)"

Popular Cello Songs for Adult Beginners

The cello is an absolutely beautiful instrument that calls countless numbers of people to play it. Adult students are sometimes the most challenging to find pieces for as they don’t want to play the “kiddie” songs that many younger students are excited about. These pieces for younger students are short, based on simple folk songs that children know, and generally do not feel challenging enough for many adult students. So what popular cello pieces are out there that adult students can u …

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’ …

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 …
