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.

Dedicated to teaching and pedagogy, I completed the two-year Suzuki Teacher Training program at The School for Strings in New York under the tutelage of Pamela Devenport. Having grown up learning with traditional method, I value the importance of a teaching curriculum that emphasizes a strong technical foundation that includes note reading, rhythm counting skills, and singing/ear training. My students begin to learn and study these skills at the age of five, this is when students typically begin to learn to read in school. I have created a curriculum that combines my Suzuki pedagogy training with traditional method. With over ten years of

Are cello lessons worth it?

Cello lessons are worth it for more effective learning at an accelerated progress. One-on-one instruction makes studying the cello more enjoyable and provides ongoing technique guidance. This personalized advice helps build discipline for regular practice and prevents detrimental playing habits that prove hard to change later.

How many cello lessons do I need?

You need weekly cello lessons for a year to play a simple song. After 2 to 4 years of learning, you can usually join a small music group with other beginners. The time it takes to get really good depends on how often you practice and your goals.

To make the fastest progress, get the most experienced teacher and supplement private lessons with group practices.

How long are cello lessons?

Cello lessons are generally 30 to 60 minutes long. The exact time depends on the student's skill level, how well they can focus, and what they hope to achieve in the long term.

What age is best to start cello lessons?

The best age to start cello lessons is from the ages of 5 to 7 years old. The cello comes in many sizes to accommodate the small frames of younger students and adult learners alike. Adults can pursue cello studies at any age.

How much are cello lessons for kids?

Cello lessons for kids cost $30 to $65 for a 30-minute lesson. Most children don't have the focus for a session longer than 30 minutes.

How do I find a cello teacher near me?

Find a cello teacher near you by searching for private cello instructors on Lessons. You can also ask for the availability of teachers at local music stores. Sometimes cello classes are available at community colleges too.

Before you decide on a cello teacher near you, always remember to:

  • Get at least 3 different prices for cello lessons to compare.
  • Read what people are saying about them on Google and Lessons.
  • Ask for a references list of students they're teaching now or have taught recently.
  • Talk to other parents about what their kids say about these teachers.
  • Get a written agreement and a lesson plan before the first class.
  • Don't pay for a month's worth of lessons until you've had your first ones and feel the teacher is right for you.

  • How long have you been a cello teacher?
  • What music school did you go to?
  • Can I get the first lesson for free or discounted as a trial class?
  • How old are the students you usually teach?
