Lesson Details

Cello

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I want to work closely with students to help them develop their own unique pace, methods, and goals that work for them. We’ll work together to not just master their craft, but also find their voice and enjoyment with their instrument.

My goal is to discover what a student wants to learn and their strengths and weaknesses and then cater lessons accordingly.

Chris has been an amazing cello instructor! He does a great job explaining how your body should feel when you're bowing (great for a first time string student) and hand positions. He really helps you integrate cello practice into whatever time you have for it and you can tell he really has a passion for the instrument and knows it well. On top of it all, he's just a really nice, fun person and the lessons fly by!

chris is the man! super nice dude, great sense of humor, and crazy knowledgable about music! i took drum lessons from him a few years ago, and he took the time to get to know me and where i was coming from musically and tailored our lessons to uniquely suit me. still use the warmup exercises he taught me every time i sit down at the kit! highly recommend
