I am 16 years old and a member of the Missouri Philharmonic Orchestra, and the principle cellist in the Play and Sing His Praises Homeschool Orchestra, where I also get to have the pleasure of being able to teach children and adults an instrument, when they otherwise might not have had a chance.

I'm sister to 13 siblings both older and younger than me, so I have lots of practice with people of various ages and temperaments. I would like to go to Evangel University for a major in cello music, right after I graduate high school. I love teaching because my cello and piano are my passions. I love seeing it become others passion also, and helping place that zeal in them for their instrument.

I try to give a fair price for my relatively newly found love of teaching.

I've been playing my cello for 10 years, and piano for 11. The director of the PSHP home school orchestra is my private cello lessons teacher, and the choir director is my private piano instructor. I couldn't enjoy my lessons more!

I hope I can help you become the musician that you want to be!

I've known Leah since she began her pursuit of excellency in mastering cello and music. Her steadfastness in focus is demonstrated in her abilities, and especially through her love of teaching and desire to see her students and her peers excell. Leah has a positive approach to all needs and demands; with patience and persistence she always succeeds.

Leah is just a really great teacher! She has the perfect balance of kindness and strictness, which is a rare and necessary combination if you want you or your kid to love music and be fantastic at playing it.

I have know Leah for a long time now. She has taught my two children with music and more, she has the patience of a dove and does a great job making sure her students are grasping music to their level of learning. She is very passionate about Cello and music in general, and has a desire to share that with others. She is also very affordable 😄 Let's be honest....music lessons can get really expensive, but since it is her passion she is generous with her prices. Very satisfied parent here!

Leah is truly a wonderful teacher. She is very talented and music, and you can tell she loves it. She takes her job seriously, but still finds ways to be fun and goofy while doing it. She is very kind and patient and is incredible with kids of all ages. I would recommend her 10/10.

Leah was so very patient with me during my first ever cello lesson. She started very slowly and kept checking for understanding ... and slowed down even more when my 54-year-old brain needed extra time. Leah is a delight to work with. I'm looking forward to my next lesson with her!

I am Leah's teacher and director of the Orchestras where she attends. Leah is a natural as a teacher. She is enthusiastic, has high expectations, and is a wonderful, positive role model. I would highly recommend Leah as a cello teacher to all beginner and intermediate cello students.

I am not a student of Leah's, but I have been a teacher right beside her since she has started teaching. I have known Leah for many many years, and I must say, she has helped me a lot in being a Co teacher. She is great with students of any age. Many times I was overwhelmed with crowd control, and she stepped in eagerly and cheerfully to help teach.

I have been doing cello for close to 10 years now, and as of 3 years ago, I discovered that I love teaching! It's become a favorite way of mine to inspire other's to be the best musician they can be! The cello isn't a particularly easy instrument to learn, but I will say that it is SO worth it. It takes work, but what doesn't? I would encourage everyone to play an instrument! It just so happens that I can only help with a few of those. ;)
