Arlette is great at instructing students from a variety of skill range. I am personally more intermediate and advanced, and she was able to give all kinds of resources to help me improve at technical and also expressive aspects of playing cello. From her recitals, I can also tell that she is very patient with beginners, helping them to the best of her abilities.
I am an adult student. Arlette is the best teacher for me because of her ability to provide technical instructions. Playing a stringed instrument requires someone who understands the mechanics of the instrument. How technique is superb. She provides excellent tools for her student. I have taken lessons previously and all have paled in comparison. Seriously she is a phenomenal instructor.
Arlette is a wonderful cello teacher! I have been taking lessons with her for just under a year and I am astonished at how much I've progressed as an adult learner that was completely new to cello! She makes sure that you understand everything you are learning and makes it fun and engaging. She is also patient and always makes herself available for questions. My music reading skills have also immensely improved since I've been with Arlette. I played piano as a child so I knew how to read the notes but she's made it much easier for me to grasp all the nuances of reading music. I always look forward to our weekly lesson!
Ms. Arlette is organized, informative and talented. She is passionate about music and is a great instructor for all ages. I appreciate the way she has encouraged my child and has encouraged the support during his virtual lessons, which is very important to a child at his age.
Arlette finds just the right blend of technical and musical direction for instructing me fairly quickly, and has already in our short time thus far, solved several issues and made playing far less complicated. I look forward to my lesson every week.
Arlette is a wonderful instructor. She explains the purpose of methods used to gain my confidence. She reinforces my positive progress which give me hope. Much appreciated is our ability to get work done and enjoy our time together with mutual respect.
Arlette and I have become good friends as well as being Teacher/Student because Arlette is extremely competent and pleasant to be with. I like her personally as well as being my teacher.
Arlette is awesome! Learning as an adult can be frustrating - it should be a conversation, and we have some great ones! I understand my cello so much better after just three lessons with her and I enjoy my lessons tremendously!
My son is 4 years old and he is doing great with her. We are very pleased with her. I drive a distance but well worth it, she's terrific.
I have been really enjoying the lesson from Arlette. She is patient and very good.
Takes the time to teach a 10 year old music theory as well as gently correcting her fingering and bow positions. Charli thinks she knows more than she truly does and Arlette is excellent at teaching/correcting in a manner that doesn't ruffle Charli's feelings.
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
