He is very patient and knowledgeable as well as an excellent cello player!
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!
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.

I would say, choose one, competent in what he teaches, one you like to communicate with and, trust your inner voice or gut feeling in making choices.
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.
