About this pro

I have 20 years of cello experience in performing and teaching throughout the world with more than 15 years abroad experience (France, England, USA, Canada). I am bilingual in French and English and can teach in either language. I have just moved from Paris where I taught private lessons at the American School of Paris. 

Over the years I have performed various styles of music asides from my classical training, including pop, electronic music, and hip-hop. 

I have great experience with both children and adults, exercising great patience, energy and resourcefulness in creating individual lesson plans to encourage my students and keep them motivated in learning and advancing. Lessons should always be fun and rewarding! 

I am very proud and happy to say that many of my students have gone on far with the cello, some on to pursue cello professionally and enrolling in conservatory schools to build their careers as cellists.

    Amalia is a wonderful cello teacher and person. She is knowledgeable and patient, I think her best quality is willing to stick to a concept until it's right. I’m just a few sessions in I can already see the progress I am making towards being a better cellist. If you’re looking for an amazing cellist, look no further! Thanks Amalia!

    I didn’t think I could pick up the cello at my age and get so far with it (I’m 47) but she’s been incredible with me. She’s patient and fun and has a really insightful way of explaining new techniques. If I struggle she always finds resourceful ways for me to get through it. She’s a really great cello teacher. I’m truly glad I chose her.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Rates: $80 per lesson, which are 1 hour!

Located at my studio in Brooklyn, at the Morgan stop / L train

Lessons are weekly, and paid on the first lesson of the month.

If a lesson is cancelled....we schedule a makeup lesson or extend the next two lessons to 90 mins!


How did you get started teaching?

Reach out to me and let me know your current music experience and goals for your cello playing, so I can prepare for your first lesson...

You will also need a cello, so we will discuss the best way to get your first instrument. If you do not wish to buy, there are great affordable instrument rental shops in New York I can recommend!

What types of students have you worked with?

All levels! I  with beginners from age 7 to 60.

A few of my younger students have eventually gone on to professional careers in music. 

I have also taught musicians who wish to have formal training for cello technique to expand their music portfolio.
