Private lessons for beginning cello. Also couching school orchestra cello students reading music, understanding rhythms, developing beautiful tone. Possibility to join the Music Academy string orchestra!

About Elisa
Violin Teacher's Certificate - Sibelius Academy, Finland
Suzuki Teacher Training - Marylhurst University, OR

Classical and Suzuki options - starting Suzuki students as early as 3 yrs old. Teaching Suzuki Books 1-11.
Beginners, intermediate and advanced levels
I am using classical method books including Kayser, Wohlfart, Kreutzer, Mazas, Dont and Paganini Caprices with students looking for more rigorous studies and more advanced skills.
Keeping music and technique in balance - Learn how to enjoy performing - Find your own highest potential - Fall in love with music

*** Lesson Details ***
I am friendly and like to inspire my students to find their own best potential. Suitable challenges are fun and needed to keep the personal progress going on. "No suffering in my studio!" means that the process of learning needs to be enjoyabl
e but at the same time I am asking the students to give their best effort. Setting frequent goals in form of group classes and recitals keeps us in full sail and teach us to enjoy the act of playing both alone and in front of friendly audience.
I teach both classical and Suzuki methods. I like to keep my students musically well fed and encourage exploring music reading and music theory next to practical skills. I stir my students toward high standard personal level in their studies, an ingredient from Finnish cultural climate.

*** Specialties ***
Suzuki method and classical method, fiddling, beginning jazz, improvising

*** Lesson Details ***
I am pretty easy going. I want you to feel comfortable and at ease, but we do need to focus and can have fun doing it. :)
I utilize various methods for each instrument, which is determined by the students learning style and ability; needs, so this can change as time goes on (not sticking to one particular publishers materials). I have done (and continue to do) extensive research into materials available for each instrument I teach, and supplement with my own, to utilize the best out there for "YOU" for the best possible progress. While ensuring an extremely well-rounded musical education, so you can progress at the best possible rate. Since each student's potential is different, each will progress differently. This is also determined by your dedication to daily practice (the more you practice, the quicker you will progress & the more accomplished you will become). This is a 'Team Effort'; I give the guidance and tools. You practice, utilize learn these tools, and off we go! The sky is the limit!

Charles is very professional, kind and friendly. My 9 year old is trying to learn Bohemian Rhapsody on his viola for a talent show and Charles has been very helpful, guiding him through the music with positive reinforcement. We tried a couple other instructors but it wasn't the right fit. Super pleased we found Charles. Look forward to many more lessons to come.

We have tried a few instructors for strings and they were not the right fit for us. We finally struck GOLD with Charles! Very professional, not at all condescending with his feedback (this was our problem with a couple others), taught my son things he has not learned in school in terms of correct form/placement of viola, and bow technique. We are very excited for the next lesson!

As someone who has four degrees in cello performance and has taught for more than fifteen years, I know the value of having a good teacher. My mission: become obsolete! Most of your cello playing will be on your own, so I aim to equip you with the confidence and know-how to become an effective practicer and player. This takes time and dedication, but it's enormously fun and rewarding. I love to teach all ages, abilities, and ambitions, customizing my approach to best serve YOU. I perform professionally as a soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral cellist, playing all sorts of styles and genres. Begin or continue your cello journey today!

I use a variety of techniques to help you &/or your student understand and have a love for playing a string instrument. I use many supplemental books such as Orchestra Expressions, Suzuki method, Popper, and many others for the full scope of learning the instruments and the pieces! (:

About Savana
Hello! I recently graduated in 2014 from Baylor University with a Cello Performance degree. I currently teach elementary orchestra (4th & 5th grade) in Dallas ISD. As well as teaching, I currently perform with the New TX Symphony Orchestra in Dallas and in my church orchestra on viola and cello.

We will learn a variety of pieces ranging from classical to contemporary/pop music while learning the techniques to play each string instrument! Can anyone say "Baby Shark" and "Despacito" fast enough? And I focus on music theory ---basic note and rhythm reading & writing and recognizing musical symbols.

I am also bilingual in Spanish ---fluent in reading/writing and basic in conversation (although I am continuously learning & improving my language skills!)

have been playing the Cello for about 9 years. I began in my home country of Chile when I was in the 2nd grade. My father is a composer and renown musician so music has been a part of my life since day one. I recently began a music career as an artist, as a result I now have music on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, Pandora, Amazon and other music stores. I began teaching about 7 years ago.

I pride myself in making my students succeed, I’ve had students start taking lessons with me starting in the lowest orchestra and after some months they are in the top orchestra and in a couple of occasions they were also first chair. I love children and I also like getting the best out of people, I’ve had student much older than me and they, to this day, still thank me for helping them reach their goals.

Since I am teaching beginners, I will teach necessary terminology and basic skills. I will make sure you are familiar with the terminology before I use it in lessons. I know how confusing and intimidating professional lessons can be, and I will make it simple and understandable, and I will do my best to make you feel comfortable.

About Katelyn
I am due to be in the orchestra for my college's production of Godspell. I am heavily into musical theatre and bands. I am a creative writer in my free time, and I am currently working on a screenplay.
