Get Sublime Cello Skills from a Renown Classical Performer
I am an emotive cellist with two decades experience. I have toured internationally performing my original works including London, Paris, and Berlin. As a member of the Pierce Quartet I regularly arrange and perform music for weddings and other special occasions. I love sharing classical music with all levels of students. Lessons with me are calm, meditative experiences where we use peaceful techniques to enter into the heart of music.
About Lenna P.

Hello musicians! My name is Lenna and I am pleased to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2011 and have loved helping my students improve their tone, learn better sight reading skills, and become more relaxed in performance. I have toured the world as a singer songwriter and before that I studied chamber music for four years under the world famous Chiara Quartet. My favorite books about classical music are 'The Art of Practicing' and 'Just Play Naturally'. I'm a kind and patient person and my teaching style is focused on comfort and emotional vibrancy in performance. I look forward to guiding you through some wonderful musical experiences. I have just been double vaccinated in late march and I look forward to teaching in person more often this spring.

Lenna is the best cello teacher I ever had! She’s so encouraging and playful and I really feel like my skills, confidence, and enjoyment for music drastically improved while she was my teacher! I’m an adult student and she knew exactly how to teach me :) I took lessons for a year and I am really thankful I found her on TakeLessons! Thank you Lena! When I can, I’m totally going to take lessons back up with Lena again :) thank you!! And for anyone that is on the fence about taking lessons: do it with Lena! You will have fun and learn a lot! Yay music! :) :)

Lenna is an extraordinary, highly knowledgable teacher. She has been warm, kind, incredibly patient, and supremely helpful in my musical journey. Anyone would be lucky to study with her. I could not ask for a better music tutor.

My son just had his first piano lesson w/ Lenna. She seemed very patient and conscientious. We’re looking forward to our 2nd lesson next week!
