My teenage daughter had a shirt hiatus and wanted to get back to serious playing. Sarah to the rescue! Terrific lesson that really inspired my daughter! So happy !

Sarah is one in a million. You'd be hard-pressed to find a teacher (or person), as dedicated to music, teaching, and their students. Sarah always comes to lessons prepared and excited to help. She knows how to get the best out of her students. Highly highly highly recommend!

Private Cello Teacher

Cello is famous for its deep and warm sound, probably the widest range from low to high register. It is used for solo, chamber music, ensembles, chamber and symphony orchestras.
But the most important cello can change your mind and fulfill your soul like no other instruments !

About Nazar

My name is Nazar, Concert Soloist and Orchestra Performer, Experience Long Time Teacher. Master Graduate from Moscow State Conservatory and postgraduate assistant ship program 1990-97 plus over 20 years of teaching experience with different age students. My teaching philosophy is to teach good tech

Nazar is a great instructor. He was quickly able to assess my goals and ability and did a great job pointing out areas for improvement in an encouraging and positive way.
Jessica
Nazar has a wonderful ability to relate to people. He has excellent skill and enthusiasm, making our son WANT to learn. We highly recommend him...
Kelvin
I've been working with Nazar since 1998. Not only does he know his stuff and makes his teaching personal to your needs, but he also has a way to make you feel successful even when you are struggling. you always feel better about your playing when you leave than when you got to his studio. He recognizes your learning style and what you want to accomplish, then builds his teaching around that.

If you are looking for a cello teacher (and yes, he also teaches piano and other instruments) I'd say put your time and money into Nazar and you, you will feel it is one of your best investments

While I certainly place emphasis on technical work and mastery, I also want all students to feel comfortable in expressing their individual voice and interests. I believe that it is incredibly important to encourage students to explore a number of creative avenues within music. Therefore, I am very open to having students explore music outside the classical canon in addition to experimenting with improvisation and composition. An additional component of my teaching style is finding unique and interesting ways to keep students motivated and teaching them how to effectively practice and learn on their own.

About Helen

My teaching philosophy is largely centered around the importance of individuality. The “one size fits all” approach is hardly ever adequate--every student has different needs, strengths, and challenges. While I certainly place emphasis on technical work and mastery, I also want all students to feel

Online Cello Teacher

Having 10 years of experienced cello teaching, I feel very comfortable helping my students understand the foundations of cello technique. I graduated with a Bachelors of Music from the music conservatory Cleveland Institute of Music, and got my Masters in Music from Northwestern University's Bienen School of Music.

In addition, I completed a 2 year rigorous Suzuki Technique Pedagogy Program where I am now certified to teach all 10 levels of the cello books. I am confident in explaining any questions a student may have. I love to make practicing a game, so that way we are developing the proper skills but also challenging ourselves while having fun! Even I can understand that practicing can get tiresome and dull at times!

As a traveling musician who has performed all over the world, I feel it is important for students to appreciate all types of music. While classical training and technique are absolutely crucial to the beginning stages of a student's development, I like to show ...

Tszto IS THE BEST CELLO TEACHER I have ever had because it is the first time someone explains me how to BREATH and ENJOY playing the cello, with a PERFECT TECHNIQUE and posture. He loves to play cello and he teaches with the same PASSION. He is super PATIENT with me and has the best way to correct me and explain me. He is an amazing cello player and really pedagogic. I had a german style teacher in the past and I stop playing cello because I didn't enjoy it and had pain and frustration. Tszto is helping me to reconnect with my cello, he corrects my posture (so it is a pleasant time with absolute no pain) and playing is turning to be a movement meditation for me, I love it now. I can feel and hear the progress on each lesson, thanks to him and to the homework (practice 15 mins, listen and reading). THANK YOU Tszto! After so many years, I am able to start again from cero and with so much passion. Thank you!
Martha
Tszto is an excellent cellist and teacher. My child has improved immensely in the few months she has been studying with him. He is diligent in making sure all aspects of playing the cello are in order from musicianship to technique. He is professional and a nice person.
Amy
Tszto was the best instructor ever! He was well-prepared, experienced, and flexible. He always brought all of his teaching materials relevant to me and made sure we cover what I needed to learn/reinforce. He was also clearly experienced with teaching a wide range of students and applied relevant teaching methods that worked best for me. I also appreciated how flexible he was in scheduling/rescheduling lessons whenever despite his own busy schedule and commitment. I only had a very positive experience learning from him and appreciated the fact that he demonstrated his passion for teaching in every lesson I had with him. Definitely recommend him to anyone wanting to learn/practice cello!

"Corey worked with my daughter for four years, beginning her freshman year. He began by helping her with music assigned for her orchestra class, finding specific techniques to improve upon as they went. By her senior year they were working on advanced techniques, resulting in her reaching State for Solo & Ensemble.
Throughout her entire time with Corey her confidence grew tremendously. As a parent I appreciated the strong relationship and mutual respect they developed. I have recommended Corey and would continue to do so."

"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."

"I am brand new to the cello. My first concerns were the ergonomics... how best to hold the cello, my bow, my string hand, posture etc. Victor gave very clear information on all of these and then was able to give exercises to help these. When we moved to the playing, it was the same clear progressive instruction that was a balance of rational progression and inspiration."

Popular Cello Songs for Adult Beginners

The cello is an absolutely beautiful instrument that calls countless numbers of people to play it. Adult students are sometimes the most challenging to find pieces for as they don’t want to play the “kiddie” songs that many younger students are excited about. 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 …

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 …

What Does it Take to Become a Professional Cello Player?

Pursuing a career in music is a risky decision, because by the nature of the industry few artists can “make it big.” Most artists aren’t pop stars, or even full-time career musicians, and all musicians also teach to remedy this. There are many paths to becoming a professional cello player, and depending on where you start it might be easy or hard to earn a reputation and start making money. I followed an academic path, studying classical music at university and then continuing my research …
