I've been teaching cello for more than 3 years and work with students of all ages and levels. In your first month of playing, you'll learn proper instrument posture, instrument parts, note names, how to read Bass Clef and how to play beginning tunes. Once your notes are learned, we'll introduce your bow. From there, things really take off! Each lesson you can expect to work on a scale, an etude (technique exercise) and at least one piece or song.

About Anna B.

Hi there, my name is Anna and I'm looking forward to working with you! I've been teaching private violin and cello lessons since 2012, based primarily in Chapel Hill. Last year, I also had the opportunity to teach the Phillips Middle School Orchestra. I am currently working with Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools teaching 3rd-5th Grade Strings.
In addition to private and public teaching, I am the Assistant Director for SCOrE Summer Music Camp in Chapel Hill.
I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a Bachelor of Music in Cello Performance and also received the NC Music Education Licensure. I enjoy working with students of all ages and helping students set and achieve individualized goals. Whether you hope to go to a conservatory or just want to learn to play a stringed instrument, I can teach you during fun and engaging lessons.
Don't hesitate to contact me with questions or for more information!
