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.

Building layers of cello on top of each other, he creates a world simultaneously dark, beautiful, wonderful, fantastic & breathtaking.

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.
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.
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.
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.
