Mike L

Instruments:

Mike started playing and became obsessed with the cello at age 16. He would fuse this new-found obsession with the passion he had developed years earlier for heavy metal music. This has defined the unorthodox style he's developed. His music fuses his classical training with his love of heavy metal, fantasy, film & folk music. Building layers of cello on top of each other, he creates a world simultaneously dark, beautiful, wonderful, fantastic & breathtaking.

Lauren B

Instruments:

I am a recent graduate of the Monclair State University Music Education Master's program. I also graduated from William Paterson University with a Bachelor of Music in Music Education. My primary instrument is the violin. My main secondary instrument is the piano. I currently perform with the Adelphi Orchestra. I have taught in the New Jersey public school system. I have been teaching private piano and violin lessons for about 6 years. 

Laura C

Instruments:

I am a classically trained cellist in NYC and the founder of the Palestrina String Quartet. I am currently working towards a Master’s degree in cello performance at a top NYC conservatory. In addition to performing chamber music, I love to teach cello lessons to aspiring musicians of all ages! My musical aspirations stem from an undying love of music and my wish to share this with others. I am friendly, cheerful, energetic, and very patient, which creates an easy atmosphere for students to tackle the challenges of mastering the cello. 

Elizabeth C

Instruments:

Hi! I am an experienced and serious cellist and teacher. I have a great passion for music and for teaching music as well. I am interested in helping cellists of all levels to achieve their artistic and musical aspirations and goals. Studying music has helped me to be disciplined, focused, and determined person and I believe that I can help students develop these same traits. I have travelled around the world playing and teaching, and I'm excited to meet prospective cello students in this area.

More Information About Cello Lessons

All students will need their own cello for lessons, and practicing. Whether a student chooses to buy, or to rent is a personal choice of the student. Advanced players usually choose to own their instruments, but for beginners, renting is most likely a more convenient choice. When you rent, you are equipped with all of the accessories you will need, such as a bow and a case. It is also a smaller financial commitment than purchasing a cello that may, or may not get enough use to make it worth it. Renting is by far the best idea for children, as cellos come in different sizes, and it is most likely that the youngest students will start with the smallest size, and need to move up, which is very easy when renting. Your private Musika instructor will be able to let you know what size cello works best for you.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons at your home - a time saving solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home Cello lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
No particular style of teaching is taught by each teacher. Students and teachers are all very different and will make more progress when the lesson style is fit to their particular needs. Many teachers will work with the student on their own particular goals while teaching them how to technically play the instrument, and read music. If there is a particular method of teaching a student is interested in studying, Musika is more than happy to find a teacher that specializes in their desired style.
Musika works with students of all ages. Adults can take lessons at any skill level, whether it be beginner or advanced. Our teachers will make a specific lesson plan to help adult students progess in their studies, and aid them in any specific goals they have. While many people think only children begin music lessons, our adult students have had great success in increasing their musical abilities!
Young cello students will learn all aspects of how to play their instrument. They will be taught proper technique, and how to read music, all while working at their own individual pace. The cello is a large instrument, but comes in different sizes. Our teachers will be able to advise you on what size is best for the student. Our recommended age for beginning the cello is around 7 or 8.
