Ivana Cello Lessons
I am a professional cellist with a Master's degree in Music Performance and over 17 years of playing and 5 years of teaching experience. I truly love sharing my love of music with like-minded individuals and am here to provide a safe and comfortable learning environment for you.
I am in constant search of bringing a new perspective of practicing and performing to my students. I am a strong believer that every person is a unique individual with their own pace of learning and therefore should be approached as such. Unveiling that personal approach for each individual is what excites me the most as a teacher.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
On the first lesson, my goal is to get to know you first. In order to create the best personalized plan for you, I need to first see what your comfort level is with cello, what brought you to playing the cello, what your goals are, if you have any previous experience, etc.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I received my Bachelor's degree from University of North Texas in May 2018, and my Master's degree in University of Texas El Paso in May 2020, where I was also a teaching assistant.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
My typical rate is $45 for half an hour and $60 for an hour, but I am more than willing to be accomodating based on your needs.
How did you get started teaching?
As a professional musician, I always loved how many possibilities one can have in our career field. Lessons are an essential part of becoming a professional musician, so I always understood and admired the importance of the teachers in our lives. Now that I am one, I can say that teaching lessons is not only extremely fulfilling, but has also served as a valuable experience in my own professional journey.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have mostly worked with students ranging from middle school to college. However, I have also worked with a few beginners ranging from 10 to 87 years old.
