Best instructor ever
Samuel
My son is quite shy and anxious about performing below what he develops as an expectation for himself - in everything, from sports to school work to music. Nicole's combination of professional excellence, efficiency and warmth made him immediately feel comfortable and open to constructive feedback . Nicole's teaching style is excellent. He is improving noticeably with every lesson.
Daisy H.
Daisy very much enjoyed her first lesson with Nicole and said she was very encouraging and gave her great pointers about how to improve. We are so pleased and look forward to more lessons to come!

I believe that every student has his/her own need because we are all unique as human beings, every one of us has their stronger and weaker skills and my job as a teacher is to find the best tool to pass to the given student.

I am strict but fun, whichever amount the student needs more.

I use the Suzuki books because the songs (and later pieces) in are very good, popular, fun, and evenly progressive.

Achievements depend also on the student and the amount of practicing done at home. I as a teacher can only do that much in passing my knowledge and spur the student own. Practicing at home is very, very important.

Private Cello Teacher

As a student of mine you can expect to improve your playing skills week to week. I can teach from the very first lesson on. Students will learn techniques to improve their playing and will play fun music. If you are interested in learning improvisation, I can help with that, too. I enjoy teaching violin, viola and cello.
I am most passionate about teaching students to become independent, critical thinking musicians who will be able to rely on their own knowledge to learn new music as they go along. I stress music reading, ear training, and strong fundamentals in playing. I am very encouraging, love spreading my love of music.

About Melissa

I began playing violin in elementary school, and immediately knew this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. My first words as a baby were lyrics because I sang before I spoke. I played violin until 11th grade when I fell in love with the sound of the viola. I studied music performance

I have played in a variety of musicals and various college orchestras and chamber groups. Because of my approach to music I don't consider classical my forte but I can still teach any student cellist a great amount about beginning to advanced playing in any style - including classical.

I am also comfortable playing a variety of styles on the cello, namely jazz.

About Jared

Let’s make music! Over 10 years teaching experience in many genres. From the first lesson, my focus is musicality and expression. I teach using technique and repertoire in a way to help my students gain the skills to fully express themselves in music. I have the ability to teach both the traditional path of classical training as well as a customizable program to meet the needs and requests of a diverse musical society. Whether your goals are performance, theory knowledge, or composition, I look forward to helping you achieve them!

Clark is the best teacher I have ever had! He’s so patient with me and has made the transition from in person to online lessons so easy. I would highly recommend him for any of your music needs. He is very knowledgeable about all of the subjects he teaches and he is able to explain everything in many ways so that I can understand. You can’t find a better teacher.
Hannah
Wow! I have never enjoyed playing the piano more than I have taking lessons from Clark. He has helped me a lot with the technical aspects of playing but has always helped me to understand how an emotional connection to the music is important as well. I’ve improved by 3 books within a short time period because of his patience. He also takes notes during our lessons and sends me a copy of them so that I can review while I practice. I have recommended his teaching to several of my friends and he is going to start teaching my nephew soon. Great teacher! And makes learning an instrument a great experience!
Juliet
My kids have been taking from C. Evans for almost three years. Not only has their musicianship improved, so has their confidence! He has been able to directly improve my kid’s musical experiences and helped them with auditions for school amongst other things. He encourages them while providing high class teaching. My kid’s never leave their lessons discouraged or bored but always ready to learn more music and excited for the next lesson. He is very communicative and will always work with your schedule and inevitable conflicts. I HIGHLY recommend him for piano/cello/music theory lessons.

I met Jeffrey after one of his performances at Loyola University and hired him to give my son lessons. He is really passionate with his teaching and seems quite knowledgable on the subject of classical cello. Would definitely recommend him to any individuals or parents looking to hire a cello teacher out there.

"I took 10 lessons with a different teach last summer and ended my package not being able to read sheet music or find my finger placement on the strings without second thought.

I have had just 3 lessons with Ellen thus far, and am reading sheet music like a wiz and gaining more and more confidence each lesson with my finger placement and now bowing.

Ellen has a wonderful system of teaching that truly makes everything she exposes you to stick, and has been getting me very excited to continue on knowing that I am in good hands and will progress quickly because of it. I will most definitely continue to see Ellen."

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 …
