Hire Concetta, especially to support a beginning violin player! She is warm, professional and very adept at finding your child's musical strengths and then identifying material to help them access and enjoy the music and instrument. AKA GOOD TIMES for all and excited to continue...as it should be. Thank you Concetta for your expertise and flexibility with schedule. Keri-Ann

Private Cello Teacher

In my lessons, my primary focus is helping students learn cello at their own pace, and developing their love and appreciation for music! Cello can be challenging, but anyone can learn with the right guidance! I have a conservatory training, and years of experience teaching people of all ages how to play. Students will learn technique, music reading, scales and arpeggios, and basic music theory in a comfortable and encouraging environment!

I so appreciated my first Lesson with Nick! We had planned to meet in person, but because of the current quarantine had to have class online - and it was wonderful! He was encouraging and clear and was able to diagnose some of my bad habits and give me ways to get past them. He also generously shared resources and repertoire. I'm much looking forward to continuing with him - just what I needed both musically and to keep my spirits up!

Great first lessons. I have 2 boys, each learning a different instrument (violin & guitar), and Nick was great with them. Looking forward to the future lessons.

Private Cello Teacher

I am a passionate, energetic, humorous, patient cello instructor. I have been teaching since 2008. Within these years, I taught the private lesson, group lesson, music theory and studio class of all ages and all levels. One of my ten years old student got the highest score of the Asian-Pacific Region in Grade two cello exam of The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music only after one year learning from me. I have abundant experiences for helping students not only learning music and cello but also enjoying lots of fun from it. I also helped my students for preparing their solo recitals, summer festival auditions, competitions, and performing arts high school auditions. I am sure you will fully in love with the sound you make after learning from me. Let me help you to accomplish your aspirations.

Online Cello Teacher

Hi, I'm J! I just finished my Bachelor's degree in Cello Performance at Oberlin Conservatory, and I'm currently starting my Master's degree in the same at DePaul University.

For the past 6 years, I have been teaching private lessons to students age eight to 21. I have taught students at the Oberlin Community Music School, secondary cello students at Oberlin College, students of the Northern Ohio Youth Orchestras, community musicians, and advanced high schoolers who want to pursue a degree in music. I also have experience teaching students with autism and ADHD.

During my undergrad, I took several string pedagogy courses and was involved with education programs in the Oberlin area. I coached sectionals and chamber music with the Northern Ohio Youth Orchestras for four years, worked as a Teaching Assistant for the Oberlin Arts and Sciences Orchestra, and served as an instructor for Parkway/Rockwood Community Education during the summer.

I'm comfortable with all ages and levels, and ...

J is a wonderful, compassionate teacher. She is fantastic when it comes to breaking down concepts for students in learning. This ability translates well into teaching proper cello technique. Her playing is wonderful too! She is encouraging and inspiring to all!
Jackie
J is a phenomenal private teacher. I´ve taken lessons from J online and in person, and in both settings J has been just as enthusiastic to teach, eager to coach to the best of their ability, and a great person to work with. J has always pushed me to get better each lesson, exposed me to new opportunities, and supported me. J is flexible, open to questions, and a super understanding and kind human as well. Overall, I am more than pleased with the education I am recieving from J and the tools they´ve given me to use during my own practice time. J has without a doubt helped me become a better cellist.

J is an extraordinary teacher and musician, very skillful and professional. Highly recommended!

I'm an experienced and dedicated cellist, having played with Orchestras and Chamber groups throughout my state. My lessons are focused on relaxation, and am as laid back or strict as the student needs. Whether you're a beginner or advanced, shooting to be a church player or a pro, I have taught students for that and am the teacher for you.

I started with no experience at all, and with Nicholas as my teacher I learned not only how to read music but I can play a few pieces of music! I would 10/10 recommend picking him as your instructor.

He was great! Made us feel comfortable as beginners to the instrument and helped direct us to the best sized violin for my daughters height and arms length.

"Jessica is wonderful! I began studying the cello as a quite older student - in my 50s - and have had a few teachers over these last 15 years. When teaching an adult student, the teacher has to understand that our lives, schedules and demands are quite different that those of a young person. Jessica's patience, persistence and genuine good humor in the face of my busy life is beyond admirable. Even though I am quite challenged in finding practice time, she "puts up" with me and my showing up to lessons with minimal preparation. I've accepted that I'm never going to be the great cellist of my dreams, but Jessica is facilitating my learning to enjoy playing this wonderful instrument that I've had a deep love affair with for many years. I can't thank her enough."

"Excellent, excellent teacher

I've been taking cello lessons from Bijan for about 2 years now, and his instruction has caused me take a greater appreciation for music on the whole. Cello is my first instrument and I was worried that, as an adult player just starting out, I'd have to hunt around for an effective teacher. I was very, very lucky in getting Bijan as my teacher. His credentials are unmatched and his talent across multiple musical styles is amazing. Any question you have, from instrument choice to deep music theory, he has an answer for. He has also been incredibly patient with me, even when I seemed frustrated and ready to give up. I probably would have if it had not been for his encouragement and help. Bijan would absolutely be my first choice for anyone in the San Diego area wanting to learn music."

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 …
