About Alison BinShing
Born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Bin Shin (Alison) began playing cello at the age of 8. She received a Bachelor of Music from the Shanghai Conservatory of Music in 2002 and a Master of Music from the Longy School of Music of Bard College in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 2013.

Ms. Alison has held several orchestral positions, including with the Malaysia National Symphony Orchestra, the Radio Television Malaysia Orchestra, The Youth Orchestra of Shanghai, Boston Chamber Symphony, the Metrowest Symphony Orchestra, Boston Callioppe Orchestra, and The Greater Boston Asian- American Symphony Orchestra. She has extensive international performing experience, including an engagement with the National Symphony of Malaysia at the Asian Orchestra Festival held in Japan in 2004 as part of a tour of China, Japan, Korea and Thailand. As a member of the
Radio Television Orchestra in Malaysia, she performed on several Malaysian television shows including Astro and Malaysian Idol. These experiences helped shape Ms. Alisonas an artist and inspired her to nurture the next generation of musicians.

In addition to her appreciable experience as a performance artist, Ms. Alison's commitment to mentor future generations of cellists motivated her to tutor at the Shanghai ABRSM Music School, the Shanghai American International School, Edvox Strings Music School in Singapore, and the Bentley Music Academy in Malaysia. She has instructed a cello section, taught at a private cello studio and instructed orchestral repertoire classes. These experiences have helped her to further develop her expertise in music education and engagement as a qualified music teacher in greater Boston. In addition to employing a traditional teaching style, her dedication to cello and teaching inspired her to become certified as a Suzuki method trained instructor in 2011. Ms. Alison enjoys instilling the same passion she has for music in her students and hopes to encourage her students to develop their own musical style.

In 2010, before coming to the United States to study for her Master in Music, Ms. Alison began her own quintet, The Trout Quintet, which performed classical music in Kuala Lumpur. In addition to Ms. Alison's extensive classical string music repertoire, she often experiments with different musical styles such as Bossa Nova and Lieder, performing as a guest with several groups in the Boston area. Her creativity and drive have helped her to become an accomplished performance artist and a well-respect music teacher.

Starting in September, Ms. Alison will be performing with the Waltham Philharmonic and the New Philharmonic Orchestra etc. In addition, she will be leading the cello section at the Josiah Quincy School using the groundbreaking El Sistema system, pioneered in Venezuela by Dr. Jose Antonio Abreu.

I've had two lessons so far and Alison seems like a really wonderful teacher. She is very attentive to detail and good at giving advice and feedback. I haven't taken music lessons in a long time, and I've never played a string instrument before, but already with Alison's expert instruction, I feel like I'm really learning. I highly recommend her!

I have been playing cello about two decades. I have great ears and I am very patient. (I have perfect pitch.) Music is about passion, and I will show you how to be technically trained to be able to express your musical passion. :)

About Yen
I have trained as a classical musician since I was nine years old. I play both piano and cello. I have won numerous cello competitions; I was awarded full scholarship through out high school and college. (Idyllwild Arts Academy and Oberlin Conservatory) I'm also receiving the Artistic Excellence Fellowship from Jacobs school of Music.

I'm also interested in fashion and make up; I have also been modeling. A lot of the times I do my own hair styling and make up for photoshoots.

We had Yen as my 9 year-old daughter's cello teacher. We had 5 lessons with her and my daughter was always excited to have her cello lesson. Everything went well until the forth lesson when my daughter was alone in the lesson. After the lesson, my daughter told me Yen was very impatient and swear at her. My daughter is a shy and polite girl who never tried to hurt anyone, I wasn't one hundred sure if she misunderstood Ms. Yen. Until the 5th lesson, my girl was reluctant to go back to her lesson without my companion. The last lesson went okay, but I can tell my girl started lose her interests toward cello. I understand some teachers might feel it's reasonable to be strict to students, nevertheless verbal violence is never allowed and should never happened. Another thing I noticed is Ms. Yen doesn't seem to be interested in teaching and always late for our lessons. I know it's harsh to say this, but the way she dress doesn't look like she is here to teach but for a runway show.

Yen Chun is the greatest teacher. Before when I played, I used to have bad fundamentals and problems of muscle pain in my forearms, but she showed me how to relax and use a more natural position, and now I can play pain-free. Now I can actually concentrate on getting to be a better musician.

Yen has helped my cello playing so much! I've been playing cello for a few years but was never quite happy with my tone, and thanks to her I'm finally getting closer to what I want. Studying with someone who has such great tone and is able to lead by example like she does makes all the difference in the world, it has almost forced me to get better by trying to match what she's doing! Highly recommended.

Our child has taken cello lessons but has not learned to "shift" or even what the word means. Amy's first lesson provided exact instructions, repeated until the knowledge was easy to bring back. Our child is extremely happy with what was taught and commented, "I really want to practice my music now that I can tell if I'm doing it right." Thank you, Amy! You are an amazing teacher! Patient, kind but funny as well! Thank you for always taking the encouraging route. Your positive energy is very catchy!

Amy is a tremendously patient and wonderful teacher who engages her students in finding solutions. What an excellent quality as a teacher - it ensures the student is actively thinking of the problem and concentrates more on the solution (even if the technique is hard to master). She presents the material and works over it again and again to be sure the student is set for the weeks success. Amy also has the finest teaching quality in finding the good in the students work even when pointing out all the areas for improvement would be the easy route. Pointing out the good qualities makes these qualities much strong and gives a sense of pride to the student for their hours of work.

Houston, TX

Teaching cello to students of any age is a passion of mine, I hope we can work together!

About Minzo
My name is Minzo, and I'm a cellist and educator originally from Philadelphia! I graduated from the Peabody Institute of Music of the Johns Hopkins University with a Bachelors of Music in cello performance. Upon graduating in 2016, I moved to Houston in order to pursue a Masters of Music degree at the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University.

As an educator, I have experience teaching young children who have never touched a cello before, to advanced college students who have been studying for as long as I have! Each student has his or her own difficulties, and my lessons are tailored specifically for each student. From week to week, whatever the issues, the student can be assured that specific difficulties will be targeted.

If you are a beginning student, young or old, I will teach you the basics of cello playing, such as hand p
ositions, note names, and terminology of the different parts of the cello. As you become more advanced, we will begin to explore musicality, such as shaping phrases and understanding how the music works as the composer intended. I do encourage an open dialogue between the student and teacher, as often there might be something that I can learn from you!

As a cellist, I have had the honor of performing for and working closely with artists such as Steven Isserlis, Robert DeMaine, Jeremy Denk, and countless others for masterclasses and concerts. In order to get a sense of where my schooling is from, I studied for 5 years under Alan Stepansky, who is the former Associate Principal Cellist of the New York Philharmonic. Currently, I study with Desmond Hoebig, who has had the title of Principal Cellist of the Cleveland, Houston, and Cincinatti orchestras. I have learned everything that I know from these great cellists, and I hope to pass what I’ve learned on to you!

Minzo was my summer instructor for three months. Though I only had the opportunity to be mentored by him for a short period of time, by the end of the summer I could easily see how greatly and quickly I improved! He is a fantastic cellist, and it goes to show through his ability to develop technique and musicality. I always felt motivated and challenged during our lessons. He is a great teacher for any cellist regardless of prior experience or skill level!

I have been teaching cello for twelve years. In that time I have learned that each student requires a unique approach to their education. Your strengths and weaknesses are what make the music you perform successful. I will help you build on your strengths and develop the areas where you struggle so that they become second nature. You will quickly see enormous gains in the quality of your sound so that you feel great about performing for an audience. I look forward to seeing you grow.

About Alexander
My name is Alexander, a recent graduate of The Boston Conservatory M.M. in Cello Performance program. I love teaching students of all ages and abilities the joys of practicing, playing, and performing on the cello. I am an avid performer of solo, orchestral, and chamber music. I spent the final year of my undergraduate studies researching ways to more effectively teach chamber music.

My teaching philosophy puts a strong emphasis on mindfulness, which results in superb technical development and allows the student to make their musical mark on the works they perform. I encourage all students to engage in music making beyond the practice room and share the gifts they have. I realize that many students begin playing instruments during formative times in their lives. Through their musical journey, students learn much about themselves, and t
heir lessons help them to gain confidence in who they are. I look forward to mentoring this journey.

Alexander has been teaching my 13 year old son cello for the past 8 months. He is by far the best instructor we have ever had. He is the perfect blend of patient, understanding, encouraging, and talented. I love that he praises what is done well and corrects what needs more work. There isn't anyone that I would trust with my child's musical education more than Alexander.

Susanna is a great teacher.

I have never played a violin before, and she is walking me through the process with patience, clear instructions, different interesting and fun ways of explaining concepts, which make lessons flow easily. By the time the lesson ends, I can hardly notice that an hour has passed by.

It is a joy to have her as a teacher. I have had a few questions off schedule, and she has never failed to answer them promptly.
I look forward to every lesson I have with her to keep learning to play this beautiful and amazing instrument.

It is important for me to teach the building blocks of music: scales, circle of fifths, and working with technique to make learning pieces easier. We will teach you about the parts of your instrument inside and out and even stretching methods to help keep you limber to prevent any injury. I teach not only classical music, but also jazz, rock, and contemporary. Keeping my students engaged and passionate about what they are learning is key.

About Sage
As a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Berklee College of Music, I attended the most prestigious contemporary music school in the world. I was exposed to so many amazing styles of music and rubbed shoulders with the most incredible musicians you can imagine (and performed alongside them)! I have taken my experiences and knowledge from Berklee and infused it into my teaching style. I do use Suzuki method because I believe it is an excellent foundation to work upon, but I also think that jazz and contemporary studies are a great way to expand one's horizon and learn about music in an entirely new and fun way!

I took a couple viola lessons from Ms. Deanna last year and it was an excellent experience. Ms. Deanna is an amazing teacher who teaches with great clarity and detail. She not only helped perfect my viola technique, she also taught me how to practice effectively. She taught me several time management methods and how to practice exactly what I need to practice with the limited time I have. With these methods, I am able to approach new music quickly and efficiently.
