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! (:

Mr. Anderson has been a great influence on my life. As a cello teacher, Mr. Anderson has a wealth of knowledge ranging from the making of the cello to the history of composers to just random facts. Mr. Anderson has been my teacher from the 6th grade to my senior year. During those 6 years, he helped me grow into a great cello player that as a senior, I was able to play a solo with my school orchestra as a senior capstone. He, also, understood, that during this time, not only is his job to teach me cello but also to help and guide me into a better person. I have had many great and amazing teachers in high school and college and Mr. Anderson is among the best. I will never forget those 6 years and will fondly look back at these formative years.

Dwight Anderson was a fabulous cello teacher for my son from preschool through high school. He was, in fact, the best music teacher we ever had for either of my children - through all of their piano, violin and cello instruction. He was consistent and nurturing, able to push the boundaries of expectation, and able to inspire. Although he only taught my son, he influenced my daughter as well by encouraging them to both participate in the GDYO. He was masterful in choosing certain pieces of work that inspired my son to practice and to perform. Even though he certainly assigned scales and etudes, he always allowed him at least one piece of his choosing that gave him such a sense of accomplishment. For example, my son learned to play the prelude of the Bach suite in G even before he started the 1st grade. That is still his favorite piece! And, starting around 7th or 8th grade, he let his pick which "big work" they would tackle for the following year. We went through the Lalo cello concerto, Faure's Elegie, the Saint-Saens concerto, Popper's Hungarian Rhapsody, Dvorak's Rondo, and finally, "The Dvorak", for his senior project in high school. Even though my son didn't always learn all the movements of the concerto or learn it to perfection, Dwight's partnership with my son in picking these pieces gave him such a love of playing the cello! What a wonder and a gift!
In the years since high school, Dwight has kept up with my son, even though he chose a non-music career path and a life in the north east. We will be forever grateful for Dwight and the influence he has had on my son in particular, and, for his influence on the whole family for deepening our appreciation of beautiful music. Thank you, Dwight!

Mr. Anderson was very patient with my son who was just starting on the cello. He made sure that my son had a strong foundation before learning harder pieces, and always came to the lessons with a bright smile.

Private Cello Teacher

Hello! I am a Master's Cello Performance student at The Peabody Institute of Music. I was a late starter at the cello, having begun serious studies at the age of 14 and playing Double Bass beforehand for 4 years. Therefore, I had to become a musical "detective" so to speak and figure out a lot of things for myself in great detail. This is why teaching has become one of my passions in life. I have taught ages 10-31 and am constantly fascinated by how I can help all my students reach their fullest potential on and away from the cello. We will talk about the technical aspects of the cello in a way that serves the music, discuss anything and everything music related and have a lot of fun doing it! Which brings me to my final point: Music is made for pleasure, it is a healing art form, it is a way to expressive the deepest things in your heart and it is a life long friend which will teach you about life, what being human being is all about and it will reward you with a beauty in which you

Alex was my teacher for 2 years. His passion for music and the cello are infectious. He pushed me when I needed to be pushed (even if I didn't think I did). He was patient and flexible with my questions. He taught me not just about proper form, but mindset; how to practice, how to prepare. He is a wonderful teacher.

After just my first lesson, I can already say that Jessica is an excellent instructor. She is thorough and very kind in making corrections to ensure long term success and the proper foundation to build skills. As an adult, I am grateful to have a skilled instructor who knows technique very well and has a gentle and professional manner. She is open to questions outside of the lesson time, and provides very good feedback. I am looking forward to weekly lessons!

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 …
