Cello lesson- Come and learn to play Jazz, folkmusic and classical music on the most beuteful instrument

"Come as you are and become what you want"

The cello is a wonderful instrument( the best) with a sound much like the human voice. You can play any genre and alone or in huge groups, only your imagination can set the limits.

As a cello teacher, my mission with my cello school is to create an interest in my students and give the knowledge of learning how to learn. I want every student that has a lesson with me get the value of learning and create lifelong interest for the cello. The cellist life is filled with community, friendship, history

Not only the skill to play but the interest to do so through the whole life. The skills you learn with your instrument is also transparent to other parts of your life.

Nobody ever said I regret that I learned to play the cello.

In the cello lessons we learn:

Study techniques: How to learn and practice
Goals: How to set goals and reach them
Memorizing: how to train the ability to memorise
Expression: How to express our feelings and tell stories
Stage performance: How to meet an audience (without stage anxiety ) how to perform our best at any given moment
Self-esteem and self-confidence: How to build up and discover who we are and what we can do

As a cellist, we need abilities as craftsmen, human and an artist. A cello player needs all three ingredients, that is why learning an instrument is a gift not only in music but for life.

About Me

Petronella was raised in a very small village in one of the most beautiful areas of rural Sweden. She spent her early youth among wild animals in the big forest and all other kinds of animals she could possibly find and take home to the family farm. One day, Petronella suddenly decided that she wanted to become a fantastic cellist, not anymore a world-famous horse rider. It took everyone by surprise. Petronella studied a music program in Highschool, ‘Orkestermusikerprogramet’ in Vänersborg. Upon finishing her basic education, she went even deeper into the Swedish wilderness to the beautiful city of Arvika. Where she studied with the Lektor Lars-Inge Bjärlestam at Ingesund. Petronella started her conservatorium education in Odense, Denmark; the home of great artists such as H.C. Andersen and Carl Nielsen. Her professor for the three-year bachelor course was the great solo cellist of Malmö Symfoniorkestra, Professor Niels Ullner.

Then Petronella did an Erasmus year in Holland in the wonderful town of Maastricht. At the Maastricht Conservatorium, she worked with Ursula Smith (Professor at the Guildhall School of Music (London) and solo Cellist in Esbjerg Ensemble in Denmark).

Now Petronella just finished studying her master in music performance in Liège (Belgium) at the Royal Conservatorium of Liège with Professor Jean-Paul Zanutel.

In a letter of recommendation Professor Niels Ullner writes


It is with pleasure that I give the following statement about the young Swedish cellist, Petronella. She is a serious and hard working student. Petronella combines her fine musicality and sense of tone production with a strong ambition to constantly improve her playing which has really payed off during the last years.

2016 Petronella started her company “A Swedish cellist” and her project “Take Away Concerts – Feed your Ears”. Her idea is that you can order a concert to your home like take away food. Her mission is to spread the classical music and build bridges between people and music. She also did a project in Sweden called “the Christmas Present of the Year is a Cellist”. This was a big success with 19 concerts in two weeks.

Excellent teacher, motivating, empathic, very skilled,
Miss music lessons for children: In a class with miss music, you get to enter the world of music together with her best friend Mr. Cello Bello. Together you go on musical adventures singing, moving, and playing. Some of the adventures are: Music mind games There have been several studies made on how humans learn best and if I look back on my own learning development and experience with students over the year there is one way that has proven itself over and over again, having FUN! Yes, good grades are often a great indicator of how interested you are in a subject because we learn more when we have fun. Memory also works after strong feelings, which means that when you experience strong happy feelings they become memories that stay with you through your life. I always try to play in information and work proactive with my students, I want it to be easy and like to prepare them to succeed with what they do no matter their age. By learning step by step music opens up a world for everyone that likes to, yes, play. Music mind games are a creative way of learning that Michiko Yurko the founder of the game created to learn music to children using the theoretical knowledge in a creative way with colors, memory games, dances, and every other imaginative way of making learning fun. I have a certified education in music mind games and like to use it in my lessons together with new games I developed. Examples of games that we like to play: Hide and seek the notes ( a game where you can hide different things that sound, anything can be a musical instrument, but also to hide actual instrument is fun) Dance and freeze: the game where you dance and have to freeze when the music stops Bubbles, balls, and other requisite: Soap bubbles are fascination and a perfect way to play with music and play with the things we sing about. Through human history, we have learned through singing songs and it is a great way of learning about things by singing about them and making different movements. Listening and hearing music It is important to get to know music and listen to it not only hearing it. I like to have a moment in every lesson where we listen to music. Studies have shown that listening to complex music as a toddler really helps with developing skills as cognitive abilities, language abilities, perfect pitch, and many more. Through human history, we have learned through singing songs and it is a great way of learning about things by singing about them. I like to work proactively towards that the children learn: How to listen and imitate notes, rhythm, melodies Learn note reading Learn how to make music by themself, express themself through music Move and listen to music Recognize notes and accords Learning how to learn, in a music lesson, you learn more than just the subject music you also get skills like learning how to learn, imitate, listen, concentrate, curiosity, creativity, and many more. Learning music will give you skills that are useful in your entire life.

The lessons are adapted to each student's needs and wishes. On top of playing, I can also offer lessons on harmony, form analysis and counterpoint that focus on understanding the structure of music. My lessons will already include many different aspects of the music being taught but there is the option of focusing the theoretical or the practical. i am looking forward to teaching you music!
