James is a true master of the art and craft of singing. He does not only have vast knowledge of vocal techniques, exercises and methods, but also truly understands how to bring out a singing voice that connects with the listener. Very detailed oriented and clearly explains how to get best results. Highly recommended!
Larry
James has been a wonderful teacher. He has greatly helped me advance in my beginning cello skills by carefully observing, demonstrating as needed, then showing me the things I can do to improve. He does this in such a manner that instead of feeling discouraged, I am even more motivated to improve. I am learning cello as an adult simply for the fun of trying something new. My wife, who played flute on scholarship through college and some professionally has noticed, and commented, on the improvement. In summary, I highly recommend James for both adults and for kids. He just has a great knack for teaching.

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 ...

The cello isn't a particularly easy instrument to learn, but I will say that it is SO worth it. It takes work, but what doesn't? Cello is my passion, and I hope I can help it become yours.

Leah is an excellent teacher! She is the third cello instructor I have had, and she is by far the best. Not only is Leah a superb cellist herself, but she is great at explaining concepts in a clear and encouraging way. I am in my late 50s, and I don't grasp new material as quickly as a younger student probably would, but Leah is able to diagnose the difficulties I am having and suggest effective ways to overcome them. I cannot praise her enough.

I've had two lessons so far and Alison seems like a really wonderful teacher. She is very attentive to detail and good at giving advice and feedback. I haven't taken music lessons in a long time, and I've never played a string instrument before, but already with Alison's expert instruction, I feel like I'm really learning. I highly recommend her!

Generally, we start with a quick assessment of where you are in the instrument, what pieces you can play and want to and/or need to get to play someday, I use a regimen of Cello " workouts" that will focus on improving overall and focus on areas we need to work the most on, each student is different and responds differently to different methods, though there are several etude books I use ( like Feullard's 60 daily exercises or poppers Highschool of cello, as well as some of Dotsauers 113 Studies ) which would also depend on our starting point.

About alberto

I am a very motivated instructor that values discipline and hard work from his students. During this pandemic I will be teaching online classes for a lower price than usual on this platform and hope that many of you want to learn a new instrument or the language of music.

I am currently a Doctoral candidate at The Juilliard School. I have been teaching students range from 7 years-old to people who are in their 70s. Helping students from different back ground, age group, and levels of playing has been very rewarding. I help my students preparing for their recitals, competitions, all state exams, or simply learning a new piece of music. I believe in tailoring teaching to each student's needs. Looking forward to working on and exploring cello playing with you!

My daughter has enjoyed playing the cello, in large, part due to Dr. Leonard's teaching style which is intellectually stimulating, humorous, inspiring, and caring. She is a relatable to my teenager. We have never thought of moving to a new teacher because Dr. Leonard always brings something new to the table in her lessons."

"Thank you for all the amazing lessons via online! Highly recommend Cello!!

I am a beginner cello student and started online lessons with Cello in February 2020. Prior to starting, Cello helped me find the perfect and affordable instrument and bow in local Los Angeles area. He walked me through step by step what to purchase, how to take care, and everything else. Then, he recommended to purchase beginner music and technique books. Everything was very organized and structured. He was so kind and went above and beyond.

If you are a beginner and scared to start online lesson, don’t worry. Cello will walk step by step with you. He is patient, very experienced, and a great teacher.

I look forward every week for our lessons! Thank you Cello!"

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 …
