Mikhail is an incredible music teacher. Talk about patience - he has got it. Mikhail has a unique way of meeting his pupils where they are at. Sometimes I am heading into my lesson feeling like I'm not playing well enough and within minutes , I get from him that I'm doing just fine. Music lessons are more fun with Mikhail than I have had in previous attempts with others. Music lessons are fun and I am actually learning. Thanks Mikhail for being awesome.

Mikhail is definitely as awesome as his biography indicates.
He not only has experience with many different styles and genres of music but also understands their histories and origins.
Mikhail is exceptionally good at teaching challenging concepts in both music theory and violin technique that would otherwise be very difficult to learn. Since starting lessons with him I have noticed my ability to play the violin and to read music have both improved greatly.

Nader T.

San Diego, CA

I teach cello from beginning to lower stage of intermediate level. I make it fun and enjoyable to learn songs and play them with high level of expression, musicality and strong vibrato. In order to achieve those goals, I work with you patiently to play scales, arpeggios, etudes and songs from different sources, among them Suzuki books.

About Nader

I have trained more than 400 students in more than twenty five years of teaching. *** Lesson Details *** Each lesson includes scales, arpeggios, etudes and a new piece of music.

Mr. Nader is a wonderful teacher who truly cares about his students. He is kind, patient, and funny. When I first started taking lessons from Mr. Nader, I didn't know how to read the notes, let alone play the violin. But through his patience and encouragement I have drastically improved and have come to really enjoy playing the violin. Mr. Nader is very well educated and knowledgeable about a variety of different kinds of music and the history of music. I am very fortunate to have found such a wonderful instructor.

Nader has taught cello to my 10 year old son, Caleb for the last 2 years. During in this time, Caleb has made amazing progress. Nader challenges Caleb in a way that builds excitement for music and confidence to excel at his instrument. I can imagine that music lessons and practice can become a chore, but Nader's patience, positive attitude, enthusiasm, and method of teaching keeps Caleb engaged and excited to play the cello. Caleb has truly benefited from the way that Nader engages him each and every time they meet. Nader is a very good listener so that Caleb always feels heard. His questions and concerns are addressed. I give Nader my highest recommendation not only because Caleb has made such good progress, but also because Nader has made the cello very rewarding and enjoyable for Caleb.

I am a 16 year old high schooler and athlete and I've been learning the violin from Mr. Nader since I was around 7 years old.

His teaching method is very organized and increased my knowledge of music to a level beyond all of my peers. His time that he takes to teach me is very well spent, always being productive, and always encouraging me to become a better violinist. He has taught me many techniques that I could only dream of learning because of their great difficulty. Even outside of class, if I happen to have questions, he always has time to answer them for me.

If you even are considering Mr. Nader as a teacher, go for it! It will be a great experience that you wont regret.

About Sarah

Thank you for stopping by! Playing the cello can be a therapeutic experience that improves our quality of life and provides us with a constant source of inspiration. I focus on enrichment to the student's well-being as well as on the continual process of learning. I combine traditional instrumental technique with insights from Waldorf methodology. Both musical training and Waldorf education have emphasized to me the innate power, significance and benefit of sound, or tone, itself. With its deep, comforting voice, the cello can be a particularly soothing instrument to learn. I strive to bring pictures, images, poems, metaphors and stories to awaken the impulse behind the music, bringing it to life. I go at the student's pace, gently and patiently encouraging. After each ...

I'm learning to play cello as an adult. Sarah has been really patient with me, and allows me to pick what I'd like to work on. We play songs together, which is nice since duets sound so much better than solo playing. We have also been doing exercises. She started playing cello at age 7, I believe, so she definitely knows her stuff. I'm making slow progress but that is much more a reflection of my inconsistent practice than her teaching.

Sam G.

San Diego, CA

I am a fairly new teacher but I believe that experience as a section leader has prepared me for teaching. I believe I will be most useful to beginning students who are learning basics of technique and music. I can either provide individualized teaching that aims to create a strong base level of technique or provide assistance with school orchestra music or method books like Suzuki. I believe in a relaxed and flexible teaching style that creates a low-stress learning environment for the student.

About Sam

Hi, my name is Sam G; I am 18 years old and I have been a cellist for 7-8 years, having taken private lessons for around 5 of those years. I have been principal (section leader) cellist in 3 school orchestras and have been a member of several honor orchestras. I am a currently a student of Eric Moore and a member of the San Diego Youth Symphony program. I am interested in teaching beginners, young or old. I believe that my experience as a section leader has given me teaching and leadership experience.
