I love teaching strings. Cello was my first instrument. I focus heavily on bow technique. I have gotten students into youth orchestras and passed college auditions. I like to use the Essential Elements and Suzuki books.
I also offer online group lessons at a highly discounted price. I suggest that all my students join. This is a great option for kids while class is out.

I've been teaching cello for over 27 years and my students have gone on to play in youth orchestras, attend PMEA and ASTA events or go to college as a music major. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to improve your playing skills and as time goes on you'll be able to play at a more advanced level. I specialize in Traditional Classical violin, typically use Essential Elements 2000, Samuel Applebaum methods, Suzuki methods and traditional scales and etude books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Susanna is an amazing instructor who takes the time with her students to truly get an appreciation of the instrument they are learning. Susanna offers any student patience, understanding and a wealth of knowledge to gain confidence in playing. Highly recommend for any Violin, Viola, or Cello students.
Izz
Absolute BEST music teacher EVER! If patience is a virtue, you will never meet a more virtuous person.

I’ve been taking Viola lesson with Susanna for over four years…including various breaks for health issues (two strokes, carpal tunnel surgery)…and Susanna always knows where to restart lessons.

You can stop looking for a strings teacher now, because you’ve just found the best there is!

Online Cello Teacher

When I was 16 years old, I attended a pop music concert and the band had a cello. Hearing that beautiful and deep sound paralyzed me. I was delighted and knew from that moment that I wanted to start taking lessons, learn how to play, and become a cellist. It was love at first sight!
I'm from Portugal. I was pursuing a DMA in cello performance and I did a minor degree in cello pedagogy. I have been teaching for around 12 years (students of all ages and levels).

Catherine Kowalski
I have to state, that I never had a cello teacher before, who emailed me mp3 files to play during practice, and this is excellent!!! If anyone is going to play an instrument they will probably be with other musicians and Adriana is to be commended for teaching me this from the start. Superior to any other cello teacher that I have ever had. Fantastic!
Maria
My 5 year old son took classes with Adriana. She is wonderful and he adores her very much. she is very good at teaching children. I myself think about the possibility of starting to learn the cello because of Adriana.
Cathy
Wonderful teacher. I really enjoyed first lesson

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 …

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 …
