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? Cello is my passion, and I hope I can help it become yours.
About Leah B.

I would like to start off by saying that I am a full-time college student (pursuing my Bachelor's in Music Education) working my way through school by teaching, so if you can't find a slot that works for you, message me and maybe we can work something out! Now, a little bit about me. I have been learning music since I was 6 years old. It was a requirement in our house, but, nonetheless, growing up in a house of musician siblings had me excited to get started. With 13 siblings, you can imagine that our house was always full of some kind of music. Having grown up in that world, I consider myself lucky. I knew I loved music even before I had picked up my first cello. I know not everyone has that wonderful experience. Hopefully, I can help with that. I desire to be the teacher that can assist you in growing a passion for your instrument and the music you can make. It's not an easy road, and I won't pretend like it is. But I will say that it's worth every minute. Every sore finger, tired eye, and melted brain is proof of your hard work and determination. To me, they are trophies; not obstacles.

Leah is great! Our first lesson was a huge success. She was able to assist with tuning my son's cello. We look forward to our next lesson.

Leah is an excellent teacher! She is the third cello instructor I have had, and she is by far the best. Not only is Leah a superb cellist herself, but she is great at explaining concepts in a clear and encouraging way. I am in my late 50s, and I don't grasp new material as quickly as a younger student probably would, but Leah is able to diagnose the difficulties I am having and suggest effective ways to overcome them. I cannot praise her enough.
