About Me

Leah is a versatile cellist and active chamber musician who performs frequently in North America and Europe. She delights in approaching the classics, but has a particular craving for discovering the obscure but brilliant works of the cello repertoire. Not only at home with classical music, she also performs jazz, modern, and early music.

Leah serves as Artistic Director and cellist of the Montréal Music Collective, a role that displays her knack for thoughtful curation and leadership. In working with this mixed ensemble of committed musicians, she programs works by excellent yet under-represented composers (i.e women, POC, indigenous, LGBTQ+, etc.) as well as hidden gems buried by historical circumstance. She was cellist with the Z4 Piano Quartet, which won Grand Prize at the 2017 McGill Chamber Music Competition and subsequently held residencies at the Beijing Central Conservatory and Lunenberg Academy of Performance.

As a Lincoln Center Stage Artist, Leah toured extensively across the Pacific Northwest as cellist of a resident piano quintet. She has been a guest speaker for Australia's Curve Magazine Festival, the Berkshire High Peaks Music Festival, and a performer at chamber music festivals such as Thy Festival, The Banff Centre, Garth Newel Music Centre, Manchester Music Festival, and Bowdoin International Music Festival.

Leah’s recent album, Impressions: The Rediscovery of Henriette Bosmans, was released on April 1st, 2020. Recorded with her wonderful duo partner Dr. Dan Sato, the album brings to life the colorful, yet barely known, cello repertoire by this imaginative queer Dutch Jewish female composer. The album has been widely celebrated, broadcast, and reviewed by stations such as Canada's CBC Radio, BBC Radio 3, and The Whole Note magazine.

Carmen Ramirez
Cello classes, musical language and basic level of piano
Classes suitable for all ages, levels and tastes. It is not required to have prior knowledge of music. In my classes I offer you in a pleasant and effective way the mind-body integration with the cello. I will quickly teach you how to solve a passage, find the root of a problem, clarify solfeggio doubts and incorporate it into the cello with a physical feeling of comfort, that you feel comfortable and that you can finally enjoy the music you are able to make :) If you are starting into the cello, all the above is valid, it will be your base for takeoff! And if you are already initiated in the instrument, my classes will serve as reinforcement to be able to incorporate new elements that will facilitate your execution. It is a great pleasure for me to be able to accompany each of my students on the path of learning such a beautiful instrument and I am committed to giving my best every moment. I will try to teach you the way you need, individually for each student, and up to the level you want to reach. Now I'm in Spain and we could teach classes via online but from September I will be able to give classes in The Hague.

Madeleine
Cello Lessons, Practice Coach, Audition Preparation
I have been teaching cello for over ten years. My students' levels have ranged from picking up the cello for the first time to preparing for auditioning to music conservatories at the college and pre-college level. I've worked with students as young as 5 years old as well as adults. I am a graduate of The Juilliard School, and have experience teaching at Juilliard Pre-College. I moved to The Netherlands in September of 2019 and have since then earned an Artist Certificate at the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague in baroque cello. Teaching has been a huge part of my life as a performing musician, as it encourages a constant curiosity of showing others how to make music and enjoy music themselves through the cello.

Alice
Individual cello lessons at home for all levels in the Hague
Hello! My name is Alice. I've been playing cello for over 14 years. I am currently following a cello program at the Royal Conservatory (Koninklijk Conservatorium) in The Hague alongside my studies at Leiden University. Would you like to learn how to play the cello and improve your technique? I can teach both in English and in Dutch, and the lessons will be designed according to your level and goals.

Learn Cello, how to read music, and get to know more music
For anyone who wants to learn the cello, get better at it, and have fun with it! We will work on the fundamental things (how to hold, how to read), training of muscles and the brain with exercises, the mindset, and the sound, so that you (or your child) can play with confidence, and most importantly, have fun. I will happily help you find your instrument.

Ilona
Result-oriented professional cello instructor with 11+ years of experience
Hi everyone! My name is Ilona. I am a professional cellist and a cello teacher with a Master’s degree. My teaching experience is more than 11 years, with 3 years experience of online teaching. Online learning how to play cello is completely acceptable for all levels and ages from 8 years old.  Either you are a Zero Beginner or you are preparing to pass entry exam to conservatory - I will explain you how to practice to become more effective on cello. My current students range in age from 8 to 51 years old and come from all over the world. I always work for results, so our lessons may be longer than an hour at times simply because we haven't completed the lesson plan (with no extra pay). Before you begin learning the cello with me, you should understand two important concepts: when you play the cello, you use your body (arms, fingers) to create sound, and you use your soul and emotions to create music. We'll start by learning how to make sounds, which you'll later use to express your emotions. Please do not hesitate to message me if you have any questions. I am currently only teaching online.
