*** 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!

I have been teaching cello since 1989.
Cello students of all ages and levels are accepted at my studio. All levels of the cello repertoire from the beginning through the Major Concertos will be taught. Students will be placed in courses according to the level of their current repertoire. The sequence of repertoire in the Suzuki Cello School will be used to place students.

About Kelvin
I am a highly organized, outcome-driven and motivated professional musician and educator with solid experience in the classroom. For the past 25 years, I have been employed with Amati music academy and seven years on the faculty of University of St Francis.
I am very comfortable with all aspects of the current music syllabus, including teaching musical concepts (such as duration, pitch, dynamics, tone color, texture and structure) as well as performance, composition. I am fully qualified, with a Bachelor of Education in Music, Double Masters in music performance and education from University of Nottingham.
I am proficient in classical, jazz and Celtic fiddle violin and possess solid skills in piano (grade 8-13) Royal conservatory system.
Throughout my teaching career, I have been driven to help students achieve their very best. I str
ongly believe that music has the power to change lives – to enhance the social, cultural and spiritual lives of people, and serve as a profound medium of personal expression. Professional perform experience: The Chicago, Natalie Cole, Smokey Robinson, Three tours with Moody Blues, YoYo Ma etc....
The most important thing I look for in a student is communication skills, as well as talent. I like to nurture students and help identify their individual strengths, which is a key factor in shaping a musical persona that will make its mark both on and offstage. I do not advocate a uniform technique for all students. Physical differences and learning styles are always taken into consideration. Potential is as important to me as early achievements and experience. My goal is to help students become self-sufficient, discriminating artists. I discuss practice techniques often and develop individualized scale routines. I encourage initiative and expressive musicality as well as precision. Above all, music needs to bring obvious joy to the student, regardless of the difficulties.”

After graduating from the Juilliard School of Music I played with the New Jersey Symphony for 3 years and then moved to Switzerland where I was Principal cellist with the Beil Orchestra. I have spent 30 years teaching cello with good success. I enjoying helping students getting better. I teach the rudiments of the bow arm, bow grip and how to change the direction of the bow.

About Don
I graduated from Juilliard (BA) and played 3 years with the New Jersey Symphony after which I moved to Europe where I was Principal cellist with a Swiss Orchestra ( Biel ). I teach the Leonard Rose bow arm technique. I believe he had the best bow arm in the business.

I work with the bow arm first with beginners and advanced players to get a better bow grip, bow stroke and bow change. The rudiments are important!

Houston, TX

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!

I teach at the student's pace. Repertoire and etudes are picked to aid the student in learning new skills and techniques. I also take into consideration what the student's goals and topics of interest are. My goal is for you to become a better musician while learning how to practice and perform effectively.
