Teaching cello to students of any age is a passion of mine, I hope we can work together!

About Minzo
My name is Minzo, and I'm a cellist and educator originally from Philadelphia! I graduated from the Peabody Institute of Music of the Johns Hopkins University with a Bachelors of Music in cello performance. Upon graduating in 2016, I moved to Houston in order to pursue a Masters of Music degree at the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University.

As an educator, I have experience teaching young children who have never touched a cello before, to advanced college students who have been studying for as long as I have! Each student has his or her own difficulties, and my lessons are tailored specifically for each student. From week to week, whatever the issues, the student can be assured that specific difficulties will be targeted.

If you are a beginning student, young or old, I will teach you the basics of cello playing, such as hand p
ositions, note names, and terminology of the different parts of the cello. As you become more advanced, we will begin to explore musicality, such as shaping phrases and understanding how the music works as the composer intended. I do encourage an open dialogue between the student and teacher, as often there might be something that I can learn from you!

As a cellist, I have had the honor of performing for and working closely with artists such as Steven Isserlis, Robert DeMaine, Jeremy Denk, and countless others for masterclasses and concerts. In order to get a sense of where my schooling is from, I studied for 5 years under Alan Stepansky, who is the former Associate Principal Cellist of the New York Philharmonic. Currently, I study with Desmond Hoebig, who has had the title of Principal Cellist of the Cleveland, Houston, and Cincinatti orchestras. I have learned everything that I know from these great cellists, and I hope to pass what I’ve learned on to you!

Minzo was my summer instructor for three months. Though I only had the opportunity to be mentored by him for a short period of time, by the end of the summer I could easily see how greatly and quickly I improved! He is a fantastic cellist, and it goes to show through his ability to develop technique and musicality. I always felt motivated and challenged during our lessons. He is a great teacher for any cellist regardless of prior experience or skill level!

Our 12 year old daughter Jaime has been taking Cello Lesson’s with Megan online and we have found that not only is she an excellent teacher but she is also an excellent role model with a positive attitude. She is very supportive and helps Jaime build self-confidence in her playing which also translates to every day life.She first started taking online lessons with Megan temporarily while we were traveling but when we came back we found Jaime Learned from Megan’s online lessons better then she did from our teacher Who would travel to our house.We would recommend her to anybody and everybody but hopefully you won’t use her because we would like to keep her to jaime for as long as possible. :)

My lessons can cover everything from basic to advanced cello playing techniques. Also musical expressions, theory and more passion toward this unique and wonderful instrument!

I hold a DMA degree in cello performance from Michigan State University. I have been teaching private cello lessons for more than 10 years. My students are aged from 5 to 65 years old.

About Chi-Hui
I am a professional cellist. I started teaching both private piano and cello lessons since 15 years ago, and I still have great passion toward teaching.When I teach music, I want students to learn to express their emotions through music. Essentially, I wish music education would help people to find that having music around is one of the most wonderful thing in the world.

I hold a DMA degree in cello performance from Michigan State University. I started playing piano at the age of 5. My minor is piano performance until finishing my undergraduate studies in Taiwan. I started teaching private music lessons since then. When I finished my undergraduate studies, I became a certificated teacher in music. Since I moved to the US to study, I have also been teaching private piano lessons in Boston. My students are aged from 3 to 65 years old.

Thank you for your time and attention to my profile. I hope to have a chance to share my love in music with you.

· Upright Bass · In studio
Allow me to start by saying that I am a violist, not a bassist. I had never so much as held a bass before in my life. However, after a few months of Trevor's patient guidance, I found myself reasonably confident not only in my ability to hold a bass but also somewhat in my ability to play it whilst doing so.

Aside from his patience, I appreciated his flexibility and approachability. Of course, I did my best to practice and attend all of our lessons, but if, for some reason, I was unable to do so, he would always work something out in a fair and rational manner. Not only did I feel comfortable asking questions, but I felt encouraged to do so. His hands-on approach of not just showing or telling but both was refreshing, as was his focus on the goals of student (me, in this particular situation). If there was a particular topic I wanted to discuss - vibrato, for instance - he would incorporate it into lesson plans piece by piece as I advanced to the necessary skill level, without losing a sense of the comprehensive "big picture." At the same time, I never felt rushed or lost during lessons or while practicing; his pacing was excellent, and there is no question that he absolutely knows the instrument well.

In summation, I learned a lot in a short period with Trevor, and strongly recommend this instructor.
