Private Cello Teacher

I have over 6 years of experience teaching private lessons in addition to teaching seminars on songwriting and music business at Infinity Visual and Performing Arts and SUNY JCC.

I teach both online and in-person lessons at my studio in Nashville and offer 30 and 60 minute lessons.

I have played over 1,000 shows, both solo and as an auxiliary musician for other touring acts. I performed on over 30 albums and have composed for radio, television, and internet video series, including sharing the stage with members of the 10,000 Maniacs. I've been featured in The New York Times, on the CBS Evening News, and on NPR.

While each student is different, I do generally start everyone on either Suzuki or the Essential Elements books.

As one of my old teachers said, “I'm not teaching you how to play cello, I'm teaching you how to teach yourself how to play cello.” This is something I strive for. Students will not only learn technical skills( how to play their instrument, read ...

Private Cello Teacher

I live for helping others find their fullest musical potential. Daughter to a teach and a truck driver, my parents couldn't afford lessons when I was in school. I want to stress that I want those students who are being denied affordable private lessons. You are just as capable of greatness as kids paying out the nose for lessons.

I strongly believe EVERYONE is capable of learning an instrument. We all learn in different ways. Perhaps you tried learning once before and it didn't work out? Don't let that discourage you! You just need the right teaching method.

Cello has been my passion since I started playing in 1994 in NJ. My love for teaching bloomed when my high school music department gave me two hours to teach middle school beginning strings (Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass) every school day, and I have been hooked since! All South Jersey Orchestra several years, and attended West Chester University of PA on scholarship, where I basked in one of the best music education programs in ...

About Bonnie

I want YOU to discover the music that's always been inside of you. That nagging voice in the back of your head telling you that you don't have a musical bone in your body is WRONG. Everyone is capable of learning an instrument. It's just a matter of finding the right fit in instrument and teacher.

Just had my first lesson with Bonnie and it was great! I'm a beginner (literally basically starting from 0 proper musical knowledge) and she was very patient with me! The book she uses and the material she shares is very useful. Looking forward to the next classes!

Private Cello Teacher

I have experience teaching in a variety of settings level students. I am currently teaching students as a private teacher and I helped some of my students’ audition for San Diego youth symphony and school orchestra assignments. I also have experience not only teaching young musicians in a small group system also performing and playing as a cellist of chamber ensembles and orchestra.
As a music teacher, it is my goal that I want to give back the rich knowledge that I have received during my studies. I want to use my education and knowledge gained from SDSU to help students obtain a proper and valuable education. I desire to see young musicians refine and expand their passions and talents in music and use them to touch the lives of others.

Rachel can really see where our son is at with his knowledge of the cello. She was quick to set up a plan for his lessons and at home practice. She keeps him on track the whole lesson and that’s great because our son is easily distracted.

In my teaching, I focus on developing strong technical foundation, which is crucial to develop at a very early stage for a future success, and nurturing students’ creativity and natural musical talents. As an active concert musican, I understand challenges that students may face in learning cello and how inspiring can be a productive practicing! I don't teach how to play and be dependant on a teacher, but rather how to analyze and enhance your practicing patterns, listen to yourself, think, be creative and independant: everything that encompasses joy of playing music

I help my students to build up their resume for university applications: audition to honor orchestras, win competitions, pass CM and RCM tests. My students successfully compete at International and National competitions and are members of different orchestras including Pacific Symphony Youth Orchestra, All Southern California Elementary Honor, San Juan Capistrano and Irvine Honor Orchestras, Orange County Youth ...

Kyle is a great piano teacher! He is very patient with my 12-year old son. Just yesterday he referred to him as “fun Kyle” because he teaches him small songs on the side that he can show friends and family or are for upcoming holidays. He’s always punctual and respectful of our family and home. I’m grateful to have found him!

Online Cello Teacher

As a graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music and over 40 years of solo, chamber music and orchestral experience I will teach you that playing the cello is a total mind/body experience that forces you to be here now and teach you the value of everyday practice as a cellist and musician.
From beginner to advanced players I will cover proper setup and make you understand in depth the mechanics of tone production (that golden tone every cellists dreams of) as well as learning to explore and understand the potential for sound colors and expression in music in general.
I have had a long and fascinating journey in music and I hope you will join me for more!

I am a classically trained cellist and teacher, but I wanted to learn to play in the Arabic style. Naseem taught me a lot about intonation, improvisation, and arrangement in that style, and my playing has improved a lot thanks to him. I can't recommend him enough! Thank you, Naseem!"

"Michael is great

Having a student like me, who's schedule is constantly shifting last minute, is no easy feat, but Mike manages it flawlessly.

As a beginner cello student but with some musical background, Michael has been great at adjusting lessons to my particular needs and helping me get on my way to being a better musician.

He's always incredibly patient - which with an easily distracted student as myself - is beyond commendable. He's easy going and professional in his teaching, and I would recommend him to any aspiring cellists, whatever their age or level."

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 …
