Learning to play the cello is hard work, but it is fun work! Playing music solo or in a group setting is a unique experience. All my students play chamber music along with their private lessons. I encourage my students to participate in our semi-annual recitals. Recitals are an important milestone to mark progress and share the gift of music with listeners. I love working with my students to find their own creativity in music. Together we work on creating a solid foundation of technique to build on musically.
Fitted to the individual student! We practice scales, etudes, and solo repertoire; refine technique, develop ear training, music theory.
Haeyoon teaches using pedagogical techniques taught by her teachers, Janos Starker, Helga Winold, Toby Saks, Mihai Tetel, Aldo Parisot, and Kyung Shin.
I began studying music at age 12. I began performing music at the same time. I studied cello, bass, and composition in Los Angeles with prominent professional teachers. I studied music in Los Angeles and obtained my music degree at the University of Washington (music theory, history). I am a professional working musician and teacher.
My teaching experience is rooted in the public school systems where I beleive great music programs are so badly needed. I worked for Beyond the Bell, the afteschool branch of the Los Angeles School District coordinating music programs and events for our studnets, grades 3 - 12. This includes honor groups, workshops, clinics, festivals, competitons and ongoning begining music programs, all in various genres and throughout the district. I personally taught two afteschool programs, each with over 25 students each. Classes includes beginning and intermediate groups on wind, string, and percussion instruments.

All skill levels and ages are welcomed by Musika. It is never to late to start learning, and the teachers in our network work with adult students of all ages and abilities. Whether you are an advanced student who wants to further their studies, or a complete beginner who is ready to dive into an instrument, adult lessons can be an extremely fun and fulfilling experience.
All of the teachers in our network are highly qualified and ready to teach so the student will be successful with their instrument. There is no particular method of teaching used in each lesson, as the teacher will work with the student to determine what route will be most successful. All lessons will have aspects of learning proper technique, music theory, and musicianship, as well as anything the student may be interested in learning.
When you choose in home lessons, you choose convenience. You are able to save time in your day and travel expenses. It may be easier for children to learn when they are in a familiar environment and feel more at ease. For adults, it can be a welcome reprieve from a hectic travel schedule.
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 rental or purchase. 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 change size when a young student grows out of their current instrument.
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. The teachers in our network 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.

Eduard is an amazing teacher. (Coming from someone who previously knew the basics of playing and music.) He is not to harsh with his words and is extremely nice. Eduard has a great amout of experience and displays it through his teachings. Specifically by making it easy to follow along with his words to actions. As a person with a wondering mind whom is distracted easily, it is easy to pay attention.

Kevin was such a fun, smart and innovative voice teacher to work with. I had the pleasure of taking lessons with him for over a year and I couldn’t have been more pleased with my time under his training. In just a few weeks I noticed my voice was stronger and I was able to apply his teaching and see the results. He explains his techniques in a way that the student is able to actually hear and feel the changes he is referring to. This allows the student to efficiently practice outside of lessons. Even further, he believed in me and truly cared about my progress. He was always energetic and focused in lessons and was continually surprised how far a song could come in just one hour of his time. Under his teaching I developed a stronger belt in my higher range, learned how to color my voice for different sounds and improved my stage presence. I wholeheartedly trust Kevin’s musical insight and was grateful that he challenged me with a wide variety of songs and styles that I hadn’t considered trying before.

Bill has been a great teacher for both my 6 yr. old and my 8 yr. old. He is always on time, keeps them engaged, and gives them just enough of a challenge for the next week. They are both beginners, but I am surprised by how much they already know after just a month or so of lessons. Both kids are practicing willingly and look forward to lesson.

Dr. Nedra C is incredible. She knows her craft in and out, it truly shows in her teaching. As well, she cares a great deal about the student, and preps plenty of material outside of the lesson for those that she teaches. I've had many different music teachers and am aware who's talented and cares, and who isn't. Dr. Nedra C is true phenomenal, and any student would be lucky to have her.

My daughter really enjoys her lessons with Pavel. She is an absolute beginner and Pavel is right with her as she learns the basics. She is completely engaged and always looks forward to her lesson. He packs a lot of learning into their 30 minute time slot - he gets right to it as soon as he walks in the door! He is a great teacher - we highly recommend!

Martina has been teaching our daughter violin since early 2015. Every time our daughter has a lesson she comes away in such a great mood - she really enjoys her lessons! Martina is positive and encouraging and adjusts her teaching to help our daughter learn the best way for her learning needs. We were curious about how online lessons would work, and it turns out that they work really well. The 1:1 time and ability to teach from a distance make it work just as well as in person. We've had moves and schedule changes and Martina has been very flexible for us - which made such a big difference in making violin lessons accessible. Absolutely recommend her!

Dan gave private clarinet lessons to my daughter, Annie, for two years. During that time, she excelled as a member of the middle school band, and maintained first-chair. Dan is an excellent teacher, and Annie looked forward to having one-on-one time with him. In addition to practicing pieces with her, he helped her with scales and greatly improved her tone quality.
Review by William Klepatsky
Very knowledgeable on every aspect of music theory. I listen to recording artists playing various classical pieces, Dan's playing is much like a recording artist's playing. Always on time. Winning happy personality, a great role model. Puts me at ease when I am playing. Have two friends who hold music degrees, I count him a third, something special about the minds and personalities of good pianists. Thanks Dan.

"I've been taking lessons with Richard for just a little over six months now and all I can say is that he is an amazing instructor. He hasn't followed a set one size fits all script in his lessons but has instead worked with my musical interests and at my pace in a way that is truly valuable. He has also kept things fun, interesting, and engaging even at times when I've felt overwhelmed and discouraged. This is an instructor that is truly adaptable to his students and will make sure that they get the most out of their lessons. I would definitely recommend him to anybody that truly wants to unlock their musical potential."
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
