Johnny is experienced in teaching cello. His lessons are always passionate, musical, and informative. There are several aspects of his lessons that I'd like to share. 1. Full of Content: He delivers enough details of a new technique with simplification for an easy understanding. 2. Learning Curve: By breaking down and reorganizing the knowledge, he teaches new concepts step by step, from approachable actions to efficient actions. 3. Customization: He helps you find out a suitable solution to grow on the techniques based on your own physical and cognitive characteristics. 4. Experimentation: The correct ways he suggests you do is demonstrated by experimenting with different ways for comparison, which you would not only know what to do but know the reason behind it. Cello is a beautiful yet complicated instrument. To enjoy it, a great mentorship is necessary and truly valued.
After coming from a high pressure - pre professional cello teacher, Johnny Mok is a breath of fresh air! I am learning at a faster rate and accomplishing more due to his relaxed and happy teaching style. So glad I found you Jonny!
Johnny has been a great instructor. I am enjoying learning the cello under his tutelage.
