Allenhurst, NJ

I've been teaching beginner to intermediate cello for 1 year. I played cello for 2 years in High School orchestra.

About Olivia
I love to create. The way I'm most comfortable creating is through writing; whether it's a song, a short story, a poem or a script. Writing has always been the bass line in my life; the heartbeat.

Music and film are both passions of mine. I graduated from Berklee College of Music where I studied Songwriting and Music Therapy. I was pushed to my absolute limits lyrically and musically within these majors, and I am so grateful for it now that I'm on my own creative journey.

I have a great deal of experience, but I am also still learning. I think it is very important as a teacher to always be learning, especially through their students. Teaching these lessons is, of course, about progress and advancement - but also about enjoyment, confidence building and positive encouragement.

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.

About Nicholas
Nicholas is a professional cellist that has studied since the age of 9. He has now been teaching the cello, viola, and violin for the past seven years for students of all ages, beginner to pre-college level.

Throughout Nicholas’s career, he has been an active member of Honors Orchestras, Youth Symphonies, Chamber ensembles, Opera Symphonies, and his university’s symphony. His music consists of mostly a classical nature with some contemporary and popular music ensembles.

Nicholas trained for three years in college under the renowned cellist Martha Gerschefski, whose accomplishments are too many to list. He also trained under Christopher Rex, the principal cellist of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Nicholas now holds a Bachelor’s degree in Music Performance at Georgia State University.

I am continuing to study cello with Jamie and I am much further along than I anticipated. I also study piano, so I am not a traditional beginner cello student. Jaime is able to fine tune my lessons to take this into account and build on it. He is very knowledgeable about proper technique as well as music theory. I would recommend him without reservation for all abilities and ages.

I took 10 lessons with a different teach last summer and ended my package not being able to read sheet music or find my finger placement on the strings without second thought.

I have had just 3 lessons with Ellen thus far, and am reading sheet music like a wiz and gaining more and more confidence each lesson with my finger placement and now bowing.

Ellen has a wonderful system of teaching that truly makes everything she exposes you to stick, and has been getting me very excited to continue on knowing that I am in good hands and will progress quickly because of it. I will most definitely continue to see Ellen.

Tara taught both of my children when they were 8 years old. She helped my daughter get started on the viola and when ready moved her to a dedicated viola teacher. Tara taught my son, who is now 16 for 4.5 years. I am grateful to Tara for instilling the love of the cello and recognizing my son’s raw talent. She also teachers Music to elementary school
children and she has an incredible gift with keeping kids interested and engaged. She helped my figgidity young boy stay focused, often giving him a choice of what he wanted to play next for his level. My son is in 10 th grade and continues to play and wants to study Cello Performance and Music. Both my children play in the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra and in small chamber groups and have reached the Regions and All states level with school. She has an incredible gift with children and her love for playing is infectious. I highly recommend her. She has a wonderful reputation in the community.

I believe people should learn cello because it's something they love.
I work with people with all ages and I believe music is just like a language where you get to share your story with your listener.
I believe everyone is different and I teach cello not only through the basic technique but also understand how to learn an instrument like as if they are singing.
I love what I do and I have a lot of patient with all my students. It's my passion seeing people improving doing what they love.

About Henry
