Private Cello Teacher

I have been teaching cello lessons students of all ages and abilities for over 10 years. I consider myself to be a traditional teacher incorporating several Suzuki Method principals, particularly emphasizing good technique, learning the value of effort, and using music as a tool to nurture soft skills that benefit non-musical aspects of school and/or life.

Through cello lessons I strive to help students reach the following goals:
1. Achieve the ability to make beautiful music and demonstrate a mastery of technique at every level.
2. Experience joy through playing music and a sense of success and accomplishment through hard work.
3. Develop valuable skills, traits, and habits that help the student excel in other areas beyond music lessons.

Hello, my daughter has been taking piano lessons from Jamie since she was 7. She is now 10. Under Jamie’s tutelage, my daughter has gone from a shy little girl playing plunk plunk plunk to a beaming with enthusiasm pianist playing Queen’s Bahamian Rhapsody at the yearly piano recital. For four weeks, Jamie and my daughter tore through 4 sections of the Rhapsody that Jamie had modified for her. It was amazing to see the dedication of Jamie and the interest and fun in my daughter. At the recital she was fantastic and what a smile. Jamie is a very accomplished artist and piano teacher, she focuses my daughter on good piano techniques while having fun. For example, while Jamie taught my daughter to play songs she also focused my daughter to read music rather than memorize the music, My daughter was able to transform this training into playing other musical instruments. At eight she took up the flute and quickly moved into advanced band. While I focused on the accomplishments of my daughter as any proud parent would do, the foundation of her success began with the training she received from Jamie. Jamie has taught my daughter for three years and we are going to keep coming – until my daughter grows up and leaves for college.
Mieke
Jamie is compassionate, erudite, & challenges you. She knows how to push you, but, simultaneously, always has your back. I look forward to my lesson every week.
Shawna
My daughter really enjoys having Jamie as her teacher! Since she was 6 she has gained confidence and appreciation for the guitar. Jamie is patient and has been terrific with guidance and keeping her interested through the lessons. We wouldn’t want anyone else!

I can help the student practice and learn their way around the cello in an efficient manner. This means that I will be helping with intonation and other technique by giving exercises for the challenging passages. Lessons will be customized according to the goal of the student. Sharing my knowledge in cello and music is a passion and a goal of mine and I would love to help reach your goals.

I had to stop because of the pandemic. Lessons were thorough, she was insistent and very detailed.

While a bit humbling Alex definitely helped me fix some glaring technical issues, particularly with the bow.
Miyeon
She helped my 12 year old daughter prepare the Saint Saens Cello concerto (1st movement) for a small performance. My daughter played more spiritedly after her session with Alex. She was especially helpful for a specific bow technique.

Cello is famous for its deep and warm sound, probably the widest range from low to high register. It is used for solo, chamber music, ensembles, chamber and symphony orchestras.
But the most important cello can change your mind and fulfill your soul like no other instruments !

I've been working with Nazar since 1998. Not only does he know his stuff and makes his teaching personal to your needs, but he also has a way to make you feel successful even when you are struggling. you always feel better about your playing when you leave than when you got to his studio. He recognizes your learning style and what you want to accomplish, then builds his teaching around that.

If you are looking for a cello teacher (and yes, he also teaches piano and other instruments) I'd say put your time and money into Nazar and you, you will feel it is one of your best investments

I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

Based on playing ability, I try to tailor a student's goals to their time available to practice and motivation. Just like with any craft, playing an instrument is a discipline that needs attention, and I want the best outcome the student feels that they can produce. We will have fun discovering the joys of learning music!

Keats is a skilled and perceptive teacher. I am dealing with many beginner issues and he always has multiple suggestions and ways of explaining how to accomplish the techniques I am working to master.
I am an accomplished flutist but just love the cello so decided to take lessons. He truly seems to enjoy sharing his knowledge.
I feel so fortunate to have found Keats because he really cares about me as an individual although I am truly old enough to be his grandmother. Outside of our lessons, he has sent me links to recordings, a new bow which I have purchased and am thrilled with, and various other cello-related matters of interest to a beginning cellist.
He does not insist that there's only one way to do things and has studied with a variety of teachers himself. He comes from a musical family so is very knowledgeable about classical music. A true musician who understands the love of music.
Lastly, I want to recommend Keats because he has a very gentle, kind manner and praises my work when it is good. He encourages me through frustrations and sets reasonable goals at each lesson.
I am also a music teacher and would recommend him for a student of any age. I know that the relationship that develops between teacher and student is crucial to a student's progress, and Keats is a real and caring person in the lesson, not some drill instructor. I think he would be fabulous with children and certainly relates very well to adults. Give him a try!

He really helps you integrate cello practice into whatever time you have for it and you can tell he really has a passion for the instrument and knows it well. On top of it all, he's just a really nice, fun person and the lessons fly by!"

He teaches difficult concepts with clarity and stays attentive of my learning pace. I’ve always felt like I could be honest with him when I have questions. In addition, I’ve had the privilege to attend some of Clark’s performances. Whether it’s in a group or solo, Clark performs with his whole heart and strives for excellence. I cannot give a higher recommendation! Thank you, Clark!"

"Great teacher. Glad we found her.

Because my husband and I are using the same email address for these lessons, I had to write this review under my husband's "review nickname," JimSong. I am a female and a beginning cello player.Joann is an accomplished symphony cellist. Yet she is able to help a beginner like myself.
She is a very knowledgeable, understanding, and patient teacher. I am learning a lot about the cello and have been motivated to work at improving my skills. My husband is also taking singing lessons. Glad we found Joann.

Sincerely,

Is Cello Hard to Learn? Read THIS Before Taking Lessons

Many beginning musicians wonder, “Is cello hard to learn?” The process of learning the cello is not difficult, but it’s important to keep in mind that the cello is not an instrument of instant gratification. It does require focused, daily practice time and a good teacher to guide you along the way. How far you progress with cello is a direct result of the amount of quality time you put into practicing the instrument. Even someone who puts in just 30 minutes a day will notice a signi …
