Featured Fairview Cello Teachers

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.

David W

Instruments:

I grew up with music all around me. Both of my parents play classical instruments like the cello and violin. My childhood home was filled with sounds of classical and chamber music. Therefore, it is not so surprising that I too chose to move in the direction of music. I went to Bard College with no clear intent on what to do, but I continued to play in orchestras and chamber music groups, and knew that no matter which degree I chose, that I would always love playing the cello.

Joseph M

Instruments:

I am a professional New York State certified educator that is based in Nassau County on Long Island. I studied performance and education at LIU Post, in Brookville New York and Nassau Community College in Garden City New York. I have had many performance opportunities including Tilles Center, the John Cranford Adams Playhouse and various high schools in Nassau county with the Five Towns Symphony. I graduted in May of 2013 with my Bachelor's Degree in Music education and currently teach private lessons. I have studied under numerious accomplished cellists including Maureen Hynes, Benjamin Wolf, and Amy Camus. I have also participated in master classes with the Shanghai String Quartet.

Francesco C

Instruments:

When I work with a student it is my hope to instill in them a sense of passion and self-discipline. I believe anyone can learn to express themselves through music. I also believe that I can teach anyone how to play the violin. I love watching my students grow and become better musicians. I studied in New Jersey and in Boston. Living in two different environments has taught me a lot about life, people, and helped me learn that music is alive everywhere.

More Information About Cello Lessons

As a student begins lessons, they will need to acquire an instrument. A cello can come in different sizes, and while an adult will almost always play on a full size cello, it is important that children are matched with the right size. This can be done by your private teacher, or by any professional at the place of purchase, or rental. While some students may want to buy and own their own instrument, many students choose to rent. Renting can be beneficial in the sense that it is less of a financial commitment, and it is easier to go up in size when a young student grows out of their current instrument.
When you choose in home lessons, you choose convenience. You are able to save time in your day, and save you money by not having any travel expenses. For younger students, learning in the atmosphere of their own home can make for a better experience. It may be easier for children to learn when they are in a familiar environment and feel more at ease. For adults, it is the benefit of not having to travel to yet another place during your busy day/
Each lesson will be different, just like each student is different. If you have a specific teaching style in mind, we will always do our best to match you with a teacher who is comfortable with that method. All lessons will have a combination of learning how to play with correct technique, how to read music, and how to advance musicianship. Most teachers will ask you to purchase a few method or exercise books. These are inexpensive and will aid the student in their learning and practicing.
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!
Because of the cello's large size, our recommended starting age is seven or eight, although exceptions can certainly be made for a younger student who is capable of handling the instrument properly and with sufficient strength in the fingers and hands. The cello is also an excellent instrument for students of all ages who have some experience with other members of the violin family, or even as a beginning instrument.
