Laura C.

New York, NY

I emphasize a physically relaxed and technically accurate approach to cello playing so that students are free to create music without limitations or physical discomfort.
Though playing an instrument takes hard work, it should be a fun and enjoyable experience too! We will work together to ensure that you are learning pieces that interest you and inspire you to reach the next level. By the end of each lesson you will know what to work on for the week and exactly how to practice in order to achieve the most effective results.

Students will learn the fundamentals of music theory and history while focusing on improving their technical facility on the cello. Students also work towards building their comfort with the instrument by practicing increasingly complex exercises and repertoire.

Lessons will be highly interactive and geared towards your personal goals as an aspiring cellist.

About Laura

*** About Me ***
I am a classically trained cellist in NYC. I have a master's degree in cello performance from a top NYC conservatory. In addition to performing music, I love to teach cello lessons to aspiring musicians of all ages! My musical aspirations stem from an undying love of music and my wish to share this with others. I am friendly, cheerful, energetic, and very patient, which creates an easy atmosphere for students to tackle the challenges of mastering the cello.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching pulls from the Suzuki method and the great cello pedagogue Irene Sharp. I emphasi
ze ear-training and a physically relaxed and technically accurate approach to cello playing so that students are free to create music without limitations or physical discomfort.
Though playing an instrument takes hard work, it should be a fun and enjoyable experience too! We will work together to ensure that you or your child are learning pieces that interest you and inspire you to reach the next level. By the end of each lesson you will know what to work on for the week and exactly how to practice in order to achieve the most effective results.

Students will learn the fundamentals of music theory and history while focusing on improving their technical facility on the cello. Students also work towards building their comfort with the instrument by practicing increasingly complex exercises and repertoire. Each lesson students practice ear-training and sight-reading so they are prepared for auditions and can learn music more quickly.

Lessons will be age appropriate, highly interactive, and geared towards your/ your child's personal goals as an aspiring cellist.

*** Equipment ***
For lessons at my home, students only need to bring their instrument and their current repertoire.

For lessons at the student's home, students need to provide their own instrument, a music stand, 2 chairs, and the repertoire we are working on. I will bring my own instrument to lessons.

I can assist you in renting a cello if you do not already have one.

Laura is a very talented and patient cello teacher. My ten year old daughter has taken lessons for two years, had her first recital and is now enjoying a string camp. As a parent, I've marveled at Laura's patience and persistence, keeping lessons on point and reinforcing positive practice goals. We are very happy with both our daughter's experience as Laura's student and our daughter's accomplishments as a young cellist under Laura's guidance.

Robert K.

Brooklyn, NY

I've been playing cello since 2001 and have been teaching since 2011. After a few lessons, you will be able to pluck a few scales and some beginner's pieces. After even more lessons, you will be able to use the bow.

Most of my students have been beginners, between the ages of 5 to 11, but I enjoy teaching students of all ages and experience levels and can’t wait to meet you!

About Robert

Robert has been teaching private lessons since 2010 and is currently available to teach lessons at your home, in his home studio, and online. As a composer, Robert has had his music performed around the country. He has also made appearances as a performing cellist, vocalist and pianist at Carnegie Hall, Bowery Ballroom, and Webster Hall.

Robert received his BM in Classical Composition in 2011 from the Manhattan School of Music, as well as his MM in 2013 from the same institution. As an expert in his field, Robert looks forward to helping new students achieve their goals. Robert’s teaching s
tyle is fun, passionate and engaging, with an emphasis on kinesthetic learning.

Wow! Robert is an excellent teacher. He is extraordinarily knowledgable and very inspiring to work with. I have been studying orchestration and classical composition with him for the past year and have grown tremendously. He explains everything clearly and concisely, while keeping it light and fun. He demonstrates everything either on paper or on the piano and does so extremely well. I highly recommend Robert to anyone serious about music. He blows my mind every lesson!

Piano · In studio
Robert is an excellent piano teacher, extremely knowledgable and very patient. I especially enjoyed how he incorporated music history into our lessons; rather than just having me drill exercises, he took the time to explain concepts in a way that actually helped me remember them. Now in addition to being able to play my favorite pieces, I also know why treble clefs look the way they do! I would highly recommend Robert as a piano teacher, whether you're a beginner or advanced.

Robert is by far the most fun and effective piano teacher I've had (and I've had quite a few)! He's a classical composer, cellist, pianist, and probably one of the most brilliant songwriters in NYC! I've been taking lessons with him for about a year and a half now. His lessons are very thorough, which makes every lesson count. He even makes music theory so easy to understand!! He's super patient, punctual, passionate, and most of all, kind. Thanks always Robert!!

Clare M.

New York, NY

I have been teaching cello for the past 8 years. I teach the suzuki method, alongside supplemental etudes, and repertoire. I teach sight reading, and music theory, as well as bowing techniques, to help foster a rich and beautiful sound from the cello. I have experience teaching children and adults, and cater each lesson to a student's individual progress.

About Clare

I began playing the cello at age 9 and have been teaching private lessons to children and adults for 8 years. I started playing professionally in high school, as a part of a chamber group where I was hired to play various events such as fund raisers, weddings, and recording gigs. I have performed alongside musicians such as Glen Frey, Jackson Brown, David Crosby, America, Colin Hay, and Tears for Fears, and have performed with various symphonies in venues such as Disney Concert Hall, and Lincoln Center. I am a recent graduate of NYU, where I got my degree in Music.

I teach my students to r
ead music, while following the Suzuki method which will introduce students to the classical cello repertoire alongside level appropriate etudes, and exercises. When a student becomes more advanced, I integrate other classical repertoire such as the six Bach Suites for cello - a quintessential work - as well as various exercises, scales, and bowing techniques. I have experience teaching all levels.

Clare is such a wonderful instructor. She has great performance experience and has been playing since she was little so she knows how to break down her instructions to the simplest of levels. She is passionate about music which truly shows in her lessons. Would definitely recommend to a friend!
