About Miles L.

I am a professional performing artist and educator who believes that anyone can learn the cello. Through discipline and determination, anything is possible. As my students progress, the more they enjoy playing the cello and making music. Not all students are alike, and I adapt my teaching to address each students unique needs.

I have witnessed first hand Miles’s excellent teaching.

His cello students progress quickly and are able to understand concepts easily with his assistance

Also it is apparent Miles enjoys teaching them and the students respond enthusiastically to his positive support

I would highly recommend him!!
