I can help the student practice and learn their way around the cello in an efficient manner. This means that I will be helping with intonation and other technique by giving exercises for the challenging passages. Lessons will be customized according to the goal of the student. Sharing my knowledge in cello and music is a passion and a goal of mine and I would love to help reach your goals.

I had to stop because of the pandemic. Lessons were thorough, she was insistent and very detailed.

While a bit humbling Alex definitely helped me fix some glaring technical issues, particularly with the bow.
Miyeon
She helped my 12 year old daughter prepare the Saint Saens Cello concerto (1st movement) for a small performance. My daughter played more spiritedly after her session with Alex. She was especially helpful for a specific bow technique.

I have taught English to Koreans back in Seoul for more than 8 years, so I know exactly how different these two languages are.

Based on this understanding of how I need to approach non-Korean speaker especially whose mother tongue is English, I am confident that I can let you start studying Korean the easiest way and make the class fun with lots of introduction of Korean cultures and history.

About Suyoun

Hello! My name is Sue and I've been teaching English to Koreans, Koreans to English speakers since 2007. From this long experience, I learned how different and opposite these 2 languages are, so I can teach my student how to learn this beautiful Korean language the most efficient way and fun. H

Amazing!!! A bright, joyful light!
Thiago
My experience with Kathy has been great. It's been roughly five months and I learned a lot and I'm also much more confident to sing. Learning the right techniques is crucial. Kathy is extremely patient and she adapts the classes to the student goals and aspirations. English is not my first language and she was also always very respectful and patient in explaining everything twice or maybe three times until I get it.
Kathleen
Kathryn has a terrific demeanor, and provides clear, thoughtful suggestions for technique!

"I have been playing guitar for about 20 years, but have been mostly self-taught, and was looking for an instructor who could help me correct poor technique as well as help give some more focus to my learning. William has helped me immensely by teaching and reinforcing in me proper habits of playing, the lack of which have long held my playing back. He has also given me concrete goals to work on on a weekly basis to help me continue growing."

"My daughter and I are very happy with Cyndi's work, doing jazz vocal instruction.

My daughter walks out of each session with an ear to ear grin because Cyndi not only has taught her well and taken full advantage of the time spent, but also because Cyndi is a great encouraging force who brings some TLC to the lessons and positive support that helps my daughter's confidence (an area that she sometimes has struggles with).

Cyndi brings the "whole package" with professionalism, understanding of the craft, a determination to help a student get things right before moving up and on to the next step/level. She also brings a great deal of patience, as well as the TLC catering to the needs of my daughter and working with her at a realistic pace with the goal of mastering skills.

She communicates with me as needed/requested and has been very accommodating when needed. My daughter previously worked with another singing instructor and we had a bit of a disappointing experience. We drive 10x as far now to meet with Cydni because she is worth the commute."
