  • Yi-Shiuan Tung

    Giorgi is an excellent teacher who is very patient and makes the lessons fun and enjoyable. He really shows his love for the cello by teaching how to play with emotion and appreciation for the music. I highly recommend Giorgi!

  • Andy Snyder

    Giorgi has made learning cello even more fun. From the sympathetic, "It is hard" to the precise, "Be careful about the curve of the thumb" he has strengthened learning in every lesson, without being overwhelming. He started playing a little duet on only the 3rd lesson or so, which made me feel, even as a beginner, that I'm already starting to make (occasionally screachy) music. He has suggested a variety of drills and practice techniques which have also sped up the process a lot. And he has a good sense of humor and surprising amount of patience.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?
Motivation is the key component for successful learning. First of all I try to find out what is my student's goals, his/her current level, are there any gaps in learning and what will work the best to fix it. Cello is wonderful for playing all genres of music. Classical, Jazz, Country, Rock, all we need to succeed is just right approach to student, balance  between concert repertoire  and technical study and of course, practice, practice, practice!

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

If Student has any concerns, he/she definitely wants to share it to Teacher at earliest , so we jointly can find ways to fix it.   More questions students have, better it is.
