Martha S

Instruments:

Bach was a household icon for my family during my childhood. Every March we hosted Bach Birthday Parties and I was raised with a love of music.  Although I’d studied piano since age five, at times without much enthusiasm, everything changed when I reached age eleven and “met” my first cello. From the start, I knew I’d found my “medium” in life.  The cello was for me! Throughout middle and high school, I played a great deal of chamber music and participated in school and borough-wide orchestras. At Bennington College I majored in music and joined the Vermont State Symphony!  I was playing cello every chance I could. Following my college graduation, I spent the year in Paris, studying cello and composition. Upon my return to NYC I launched my own self-styled performing and teaching career.  I earned my Master of Arts Degree in Cello Performance at Brooklyn College. All the while, I was performing in various groups such as a 5 woman chamber ensemble called Mother Chord, and, as mentioned above, with the mandolin-English Concertina-cello trio called Calle Strada Strasse and with the musician that took me furthest around the world-Suni Paz, an Argentine singer/songwriter with whom I played from 1976 to 1997, touring Germany, Mexico, and throughout the U.S.  What a gratifying experience that has been!  Despite Suni’s move to California, we still perform together every year.

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

Most beginners start out with a cello rental, which includes the cello, bow, and case. A high-quality rental usually will cost around $20 to $40 a month. If you are considering buying a cello, student instruments begin at around $500. Our instructors can provide recommendations and insight to help you choose the right instrument that suits your needs. When buying or renting a cello for a young child, make sure they are present to ensure the instrument purchased is the correct size for their height and age.
In home lessons is the most popular choice with Musika students. It allows both beginning and advance students to study their instrument even with very busy schedules. You will not spend time or money on traveling, and will have the same quality of lessons with our qualified instructors. Children and adults both love the idea of in home lessons as it allows learning to occur in the comfort and securtiy of their own home
Music lessons are tailored to each students specific needs. All students are different, and will progress using different methods. Our teachers will work with the students on a case by base basis, ensuring that each student works to their highest ability. All lessons will be comprised of some variation of learning to read music, learning how to technically play the instrument, and learning to progress in their musicianship. While Musika does not mandate a particular style of teaching, if there is a method you are interested in we will do our best to match you with a teacher that specializes in that area.
Many adult students request cello lessons because of the instrument's sophistication and beautiful tone. Many adult beginners will find the cello slightly easier than the violin, simply because finger placement is farther apart, making it a little easier to distinguish between the correct notes.
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.
