I had a great experience because Catherine is an amazing instructor.
She taught lessons with a high degree of professionalism and care. As a novice, I was able to learn a lot because Catherine was patient and attentive to my learning style.
Teba
My two oldest children (one more advanced in piano than the other) began taking lessons with Catherine just this year. They have both shown significant improvement and love her as an instructor. They also look forward to practicing in between lessons. We could not be happier.

Great artist and a teacher. My 6 year old enjoys her lessons and I love her down to earth vibe.

Peter has exceeded my expectations, I look forward for my lesson every week. I honestly can say He is the best teacher I’ve ever had. I am a 44 yo violin beginner student who has had 5 teachers in the last 6 years, I didn’t learn much with them, this been said, with Peter in just 3 months I feel I have learned more than my other teachers. Peter is so, so patient and extremely professional. I am very pleased to have found such a wonderful teacher.

Peter is always on time, patient with beginners, and gives valuable guidance.

Wonderful first lesson! Amy was kind and welcoming.
Roni
We just finished our 25th months with Miss Amy as our teacher and are still so very happy to have her! She is the BEST teacher we know! Miss Amy is extremely skilled and very qualified. But the best part of having Miss Amy as a teacher is her endless patience and her sweet ability to get the very best from her students - and it all seems so effortless. We have always taken lessons on line with Miss Amy and even though we wondered at first if we could make it work it has been just perfect! Miss Amy has THE best way of helping our learners get out of lessons what they need and still keep working toward playing better a fun experience. She seems to know when a song may have become a labor rather than a love and just works around those perfectly. Miss Amy, we love you so much. You have truly changed our family. Our sons are complimented on their ability all the time and we get asked tons who our teacher is. We are always proud to tell any one who asks that Miss Amy in New York is our teacher! Thank you, Miss Amy!

A great teacher! Excited for our next lesson.

"Fabulous cello teacher!!! We are so pleased that our daughter is taking lessons from Arlette. When our daughter wanted to learn cello (2 years ago), Arlette came highly recommended. We were not disappointed! Arlette teaches all aspects of playing the cello, including music theory, and developing musically. She's passionate, caring, patient every step of the way, inspirational, and makes it so much fun!--consequently, my girl recently auditioned and was accepted to play in a high school orchestra (she's a middle school student). She loves playing cello!"

"I have started cello lessons back in June. Susanna is someone who will go at your pace, & is very patient with you. I grew up learning how to read music, so I was able to get through the first book pretty quickly. She has helped me set a new goal so that when I become unmotivated to practice, I can remember what my main goal is. I have an early lesson, so I tend to be a little sassy... She does amazingly with handling my sass & dishing it right back out at me. She makes the difficult lessons more fun, & enjoyable. I would reach out to her if you are looking for a teacher who is flexible, patient, & a joy to learn from."

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 …
