Private Cello Teacher

Cello has brought me all over the world! I've play in pit orchestras for musical theater and in classical chamber orchestras, recorded on folk records and electronic albums, performed in Indian music festivals and the Montreux Jazz festival! Lessons with me will be rooted in an understanding of the instrument that can be applied to any genre.

Ellen is awesome. I am a total beginner and perfectionist so I don't tend to do well with learning something new in front of another person. I grow easily frustrated when I don't pick things up quickly and easily and get embarrassed when I make mistakes. Ellen makes the lessons super comfortable for me and I leave having learned something new every time. I have a LONG way to go but I can see where this can lead and plan to stick with it. She knows how to make music and an instrument make sense to someone with no background in music which is very helpful for me. I plan to stick with her for a long time!

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.

Ellen’s been great! We couldn’t ask for a better experience!

Private Cello Teacher

My lessons are personally tailored to each students learning style. I want each student to feel empowered and confident, in a fun and inspiring environment. Throughout the lessons we will talk about goals and preferred music styles, and move at a comfortable pace so that the student can feel confident in their progress. Annual recitals are offered for those who wish to showcase their progress, though they are not at all a requirement for those who do not wish to participate.

About Peyton

My name is Peyton and I have been teaching cello in the Philadelphia/Tri-State area since 2012. I have been playing cello since I was 6 years old, and believe a lot of my passion for music came from having an incredibly inspiring teacher since day one. I aim to bring that same energy and inspiratio

My 16 year old daughter has been taking lessons from Alex for two years. He's a very accomplished cellist with a strong background in all areas of playing the cello. He has been very patient with my daughter. He makes the lessons fun. Her skill level has steadily improved and can be directly attributed to lessons with Alex. Most importantly, he has helped her gain more confidence in her playing! I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to become a better cellist!
Bren
Alex is an excellent cello teacher! He is very perceptive and offers solid suggestions to help you improve your technique and grow as a player. Learning a new instrument can be quite stressful, but Alex is a supportive teacher whose friendly smile and casual demeanor will help put you at ease in your studies.

I am coming to the cello as a brand new beginner. I have play around with some fretted instruments, ukulele, banjo, etc. But Irina was super at getting me relaxed, focused on basics and encouraging me with small, but important mechanics and technical details. I have taken other music lessons like sax, so could compare. I totally enjoyed the start of my cello training.
Oh, btw, I'm retired and over 65!!!

"We just had our first cello lesson with Jessica and it was wonderful! She was very patient with me getting the tech set up for the first time online, and then was very attentive to my daughter. She helped in so many detailed ways, and details make all the difference. Hand grip, finger placement, bow hold, many things, all to make a better sound. Even after 45 minutes of a lesson, my daughter had fun and wanted to continue playing after she got offline. Yay! Success! Thanks Jessica!"

Is Cello Hard to Learn? Read THIS Before Taking Lessons

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 …
