The cello can be enjoyed by amateurs and aficionados alike, and Dr. Nathan Whittaker provides lessons to all age and skill levels, from the young to the not-so-young, from beginners to advanced, from the casual or curious to the fiercely serious. He has been teaching professionally for over 15 years.

A good teacher is one that enforces the basic foundations of technique. While any teacher can guide a student through vast amounts of repertoire, only the conscientious teacher prepares the student for all future endeavors and challenges. Nathan Whittaker's teaching philosophy consists of an unwavering understanding of technique, focusing on beauty of sound and elegance of expression. Scales and technical exercises coalesce with exciting repertoire to promote quick, yet thorough progress.

I have been teaching violin for six years. Though I am classically trained, my interest in music goes far beyond classical music. I am constantly listening to various genres of music and consider myself a forever learner, loving everything in music from Prokofiev to the Flaming Lips. It is my job to help guide my students through their musical journeys, whether that is helping them get into their regional orchestra or teaching them that one song they've always wanted to learn. I teach out of the Essential Elements or Suzuki Method books. Though my lessons are fun and relaxed I will always give my students that extra push when needed. My goal is to help each student reach their personal success and to instill a love for playing music.

Tools for lessons:

Music Stand
Rosin
Shoulder rest or sponge
Previous method books (if you are not a first time learner)
Metronome
Pencil

Since then, I have performed at Woolsey Hall, Ivoryton Playhouse, Playhouse on Park, and the Bushnel

Great instruction, she had me working with the bow on the very first lesson. Very responsive to students needs, A+ will continue studying viola with phoebe.
Carol
Miss Phoebe is an excellent, patient instructor for my two young violinists! She is prompt, and has lots of tools in her tool kit to bring about proper posture, tone, sound. She exhibits a very warm kind discipline that makes clear her expectations without being mean about it at all. I think my kids have made significant progress under her tutelage and I would definitely recommend her for any skill level!
Mike
I'm an adult learner who went through Suzuki book 2 and a few other pieces with Phoebe as my instructor. I spent a month prior with a "bad experience" and hadn't taken lessons in probably 10 years before that.

Working with Phoebe was GREAT. She was very easy to work with and really saw to improving my skills. She was encouraging and very positive. When I had troubles with parts (which was often), she would always have multiple suggestions as to how to practice them to work through the difficulties. She also gave me nudges along when I didn't think I could do certain things too. All in all, I had a great experience working with Phoebe and would have loved to continue to work with her if she was still in my local area.

If you're wondering why not 5 stars, that's more from my lack of experience than any issue with her. The guide says 5 stars is the "best teacher ever". She probably was the best teacher ever for me, but I'm somewhere between beginner and intermediate. Is she a good fit for an advanced student, I'm going to guess that, yes, she is, but I don't know that info personally so I went with 4.

I love it!

Charles is very professional, kind and friendly. My 9 year old is trying to learn Bohemian Rhapsody on his viola for a talent show and Charles has been very helpful, guiding him through the music with positive reinforcement. We tried a couple other instructors but it wasn't the right fit. Super pleased we found Charles. Look forward to many more lessons to come.
Stratton
We have tried a few instructors for strings and they were not the right fit for us. We finally struck GOLD with Charles! Very professional, not at all condescending with his feedback (this was our problem with a couple others), taught my son things he has not learned in school in terms of correct form/placement of viola, and bow technique. We are very excited for the next lesson!

I am 70 and recently started learning to play piano with Minoo -- she is simply the very best teacher you could get! Already, she has me playing with two hands multiple songs and without looking at the keyboard! You will be amazed and grateful to have her as your teacher. She has me wanting to and happy to practice.
Judith B.
Minoo has taught me so much more than any piano instructor I ever had and she did it in only a few lessons so far. She makes it fun and now I really like practicing ---something my previous instructors did not seem to inspire me to do.

Great first lesson for my daughter - who is almost 5. Can’t wait for next week.
