Featured Tampa Cello Teachers

Hallie C

Instruments:

I grew up in a musical family. My mother is a professional violinist and teacher and all of my sisters and brother and I learned to play various instruments from a very early age. My mother and father sacrificed a lot for their children to have music lessons as they are quite expensive for the lower middle class family But they believed it was worth it as music lessons boost brain power and help with the development of fine motor skills and mathematics, even speech. I loved music from the beginning and being a shy child, I found solace in music and could play for nature in the park or in the fields and just be myself. I hope that I can help share the joy and beauty that music brings to life with you or your child.

Brian S

Instruments:

I'm a very motivated cellist and private teacher who loves developing the talents of my students. I have had the opportunity to study at some of the worlds best schools of music including: Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music, University of South Florida's School of Music, and was accepted into the Longy School of Music in Boston. At these institutions I have had the chance to study with some of the worlds leading solo and orchestral cellists including: Helga Winold, Emilio Colon, Janos Starker, Scott Kluksdahl and Lowell Adams. In 2010 I was given the opportunity to join the St. Petersburg Opera Orchestra as their Assistant Principle Cellist where I performed in productions of Marriage of Figaro, Sampson and Delilah, Die Fletermause, and other various operatic works.

Gregory d

Instruments:

A native of Florida, I recently graduated from the University of South Florida in Tampa under the tutelage of Scott Kluksdahl, an internationally renowned cellist and pedagogue. My other primary cello teachers include Loran Stephenson (National Symphony Orchestra), Helga Winold (Indiana University) and John Kaboff (Arlington, VA). I have participated in masterclasses with David Requiro and the Baumer String Quartet, Noreen-Cassidy Polera, Rhonda Rider, Jan Müller-Szeraws, Joshua Gordon, Carol Ou, Rupert Thompson, Robert Jesselson, Ross Harbaugh, Rebecca Penneys and Norman Fischer. As a strong advocate of new music, I have actively participated in numerous student composer concerts that have presented new and viable works from USF's esteemed composition program. I have also participated in the Apple Hill Chamber Music Festival (2012 and 2013) and the annual Tennessee Cello Workshop (2009). I was the principal cellist of the 2009 National Philharmonic Summer String Institute under the direction of maestro Piotr Gajewski and I was recently the Assistant Principal of the University of South Florida Symphony Orchestra. Throughout my high school career, I taught and performed actively as a guitarist and pianist in many varying ensembles ranging from improvisatory ensembles to rock and roll groups.   As a motivated instructor, I focus on building depth of experience and knowledge regarding music and all of its aspects in students of all ages. Furthermore, I proclaim the importance of the fact that musicians create and communicate directly through their presentation of musical works at any level and on any instrument.

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/
Every student is different, and each lesson will be different. There is no particular teaching style that Musika mandates, but if you are looking for a particular method, such as Suzuki, we would be happy to find a teacher that specializes in that. In lessons you will learn to read music, play with proper technique, and advance your musicianship skills. Some teachers will have students buy particular method books. These materials are inexpensive and will be used for teaching and practicing.
It is never too late to start learning an instrument. Adult students appreciate the convenience of our in home lessons, as they can schedule them around their othe commitments. Whether you are a complete beginner, or have been playing for years, our teachers can work with all ages and abilities.
We recommend children begin cello around age 7 or 8. With the cello being a larger member of the string family, it is important that the child is comfortable with the size of the instrument. Our knowledgeable teachers can help you choose the correct size. As beginning students, children are introduced to the technical aspects of playing, musicianship, and how to read and understand music.
