Teaching since:
January 2000

I have 20 years of cello experience in performing and teaching throughout the world with more than 15 years abroad experience (France, England, USA, Canada). I am bilingual in French and English and can teach in either language. I have just moved from Paris where I taught private lessons at the American School of Paris.

Over the years I have performed various styles of music asides from my classical training, including pop, electronic music, and hip-hop.

I have great experience with both children and adults, exercising great patience, energy and resourcefulness in creating individual lesson plans to encourage my students and keep them motivated in learning and advancing. Lessons should always be fun and rewarding!

I am very proud and happy to say that many of my students have gone on far with the cello, some on to pursue cello professionally and enrolling in conservatory schools to build their careers as cellists.

Amalia was very friendly, kind and extremely patient with my son when he had his first cello lesson.
My son likes her. I honestly can say enough good things about her.
Looking forward to see her again!

Amalia is an incredibly astute, able teacher as well as player. She is a joy to be around as well, and makes the learning environment playful and exciting!

Amalia is quite a patient teacher, having to deal with me isn't easy. Her proficiency with music and capacity to meet her students at their ability level, those are what set her apart.

Quel regret que Mlle Guegan ait déménagé à Paris ses classes étaient un réel épaanouissement pour mon fils. Elle a réussi à s'adapter à son tempérament créatif pour lui apprendre à pousser plus loin sa technique en composant un peu ce qui l'amusait énormément. Je n'ai su trouver de pareil professeur depuis. Quel regret! Une perle!

I was taking lessons with Amalia in Paris for a year before her move, and I'm quite sad she moved to New York!! Shes been a wonderful teacher, I had taken lessons with other teachers before but Amalia gave me a whole other motivation and I advanced so much with her. She makes the cello fun while being also very meticulous about technique. Her way of explaining is very thorough. She has been wonderful. It's going to be hard to find a teacher to replace her.
I wish her all the best in New York.

I am a very beginner with no prior experience. I have tried different music teachers and Amalia is the by far the best, she is very knowledgeable and patient, especially being new to the instrument! I have fun playing and I know that It is wonderful for my mind and intellectual stimulation. I couldn't ask for a better cello teacher.
