In my teaching, I fuse my classical training by Russian cello masters with innovative approaches including the Suzuki method and my own “Plug-and-Play” method.

Building on decades of experience teaching all age groups, from beginners to advanced cellists, I always work with each student on the individual level, making mastering the cello manageable and fun.

I focus on musicianship, proper ergonomic handling of the instrument, discipline, and self-discovery. To maximize the engagement and effectiveness of each lesson, I use audio and video equipment to document important parts of the session to be reviewed at home.

I also utilize the power of multimedia to facilitate the mastery of musical collaboration, improvisation, and accompaniment; for example, I encourage some beginners to learn to play along with the cello parts in famous pieces by popular bands, such as The Beatles.

Arkady Beletsky has taught cello for over 50 years. Having earned a Master of the Arts degree from Gnesin Music Institute in Moscow, Russia, Arkady uses a mix of various teaching methods to provide students with an individual learning plan that works best for them.
