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.

I've taken lessons from a number of double bass teachers. I've never found an instructor who gave me exactly what I needed until Geoff. He's the consummate professional double bass player and teacher. Geoff is intelligent, courteous, patient, humorous and above all knowledgeable. So, if you're a serious upright bass student, I would, without hesitation, recommend Geoff Bowater.

As a member of the Pierce Quartet I regularly arrange and perform music for weddings and other special occasions. I love sharing classical music with all levels of students.

Lenna educates with patience, expertise, and humor. She was fantastic at turning my overly negative self-critiques into poignant and positive learning points. She helped me help myself, and consequently my cello playing got way, way better. Thanks Lenna!

I’ve had many instructors intermittently in my long life and travels. But Lenna has helped me the MOST. I’m strengthening muscles, improving muscle memory and having great fun. Lenna is helping me be super present with each sound. She is a sunbeam!

Brianna is amazing and so sweet and patient with my daughter. She makes the lessons fun and easy to understand. She also goes back over things to make sure they’re ingrained in my daughter’s musical education. We love her as a violin teacher!!!

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

Allison C.
Ms. W was the most dedicated and patient teacher. Each lesson, I could sense her love for music from the way she described the image of a sunrise from the 2nd movt. of the Saint-Saens cello concerto. Her attention to detail and professionalism greatly improved my cello performance.

Before taking lessons with Ms. W, I was with another teacher for 8 years, but I felt that I wasn't improving. Once I started learning of Ms. W, I improved dramatically. She emphasized the importance of a strong foundation, like sound quality and intonation.

With Ms. W, I was accepted into the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra, then named Associate Principal Cellist. Ms. Wang was also the driving force behind my qualification for the PMEA District 12 and Region 6 orchestra. Soon after, she prepared me for my college audition recordings to several colleges and Yale University, which is where I am today.

Ms. W is an incredibly lovely and talented teacher. I was so lucky to have her and am excited for all her future students!
Jerilyn
Queenie taught piano and cello in our home. She was very kind, patient, and made it fun for my children.
Janine Fanchiang
Having to be Ms. Queenie's student for almost three years, I have the confidence to say that she is one of the best music teachers I have ever had in my music career. Being a Music Major at Temple University myself, I have had many music teachers, and Ms. Queenie is the only teacher that I am still taking lessons with!

During classes, Ms. Queenie will always make sure that you feel comfortable and safe before teaching. She really cares about her students! Even with COVID close down, Ms. Queenie was able to transition into online teaching professionally and innovatively.

Another thing is that Queenie is actually my second cello teacher. When I first started, she was really patient and taught me almost from the beginning. LASTLY, She is going to be Dr. Queenie soon, so hurry before the price doubles up!

Cello Thumb Position: Where to Place Your Fingers & Hands

Cello thumb position is one of the big leaps of technique for advancing cellists and is one of the skills that sets more advanced students from the intermediate. This new technique opens up the higher ranges of the instrument and allows us to play more advanced solos and etudes. This technique is not something you should rush into though! Make sure to take things slowly at first and master the basic concepts before moving on.  When Should You Focus on Your Cello Thumb Position? There have to …

Is There Such Thing as a Left-Handed Cello? How to Play as a Leftie

Handedness is the sense that one hand is more dexterous or coordinated compared to the other. Researchers usually determine an individual’s handedness by observing which hand is used to write or eat. Although the causes of handedness are not fully understood, about 10% of the population is left handed or ambidextrous according to Dr. M.K. Holder, a researcher and specialist on handedness. Many left handed students wonder if they will need a specialized instrument in order to learn to play …

Is My Cello Too Small? How to Know You've Found the Right Fit

At some point, your young cellist will grow out of their instrument. Growing out of an instrument is an awkward time for everyone involved and it is not something that happens suddenly. More often than not, finding that it is time to upgrade to a larger instrument is a slow realization that something is wrong in the musical force. If you can consult a professional, please do so! This decision is beneficial for the long run although it presents its own challenges upon the switch.  What Cell …
