Trusted teacher: My teaching method is scrupulously adapted to each student I have, regardless of the subject to work on (musical language, cello, music history, analysis, conducting, etc.) I always apply the Belgian teaching model, where I trained with my master's degrees in Conducting (Antwerp) and Historical Cello (Brussels). According to this model, the main thing is a living and practical teaching, taking understanding and not memory as the main learning engine.

Cello classes for all levels (beginner, intermediate and advanced), it does not matter if you have never played cello before or if you are already studying, the important thing is to help you achieve the goals you want with this beautiful instrument. To have better results with practice, if it is necessary to help you with music theory, I will help you. As well, if you're looking for help in orchestral excerpts for auditions, I'm here for you! For kids, parental support is also important during some lesson, we are all a team and we need to work together to achieve the goals!

Ilona - Opole$44
Trusted teacher: 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.
Petra - Vienna$39
Trusted teacher: Das Cello ist ein sehr vielseitiges Instrument, und kann in unterschiedlichen Stilrichtungen eingesetzt werden. Deswegen bin ich in meinem Unterricht sehr offen und helfe meinen Schülern gerne, klassische und weniger klassische Spieltechniken zu lernen, um ihre Wunschmusik spielen zu können. Du hast Lust zu lernen nach Gehör zu spielen und möchtest frei improvisieren können? Ich habe Improvisation als Schwerpunkt und lege besonders viel Wert darauf, die Kreativität des Schülers von Anfang an durch Improvisation zu fordern. Die Schulung des Gehörs ist mir ebenso ein sehr großes Anliegen und dafür nehme ich mir so viel Zeit, wie notwendig. Falls du mehr über meinen Unterricht erfahren möchtest, schreibe mir gerne eine Nachricht. Ich freue mich auf dich! - Petra

Madeleine - Paris$32
Trusted teacher: From the first lesson that I gave, I felt that teaching fascinated me, and this for many reasons: the fact of sharing knowledge or feeling the other progressing and knowing the instrument better and better. , but also the fact that the course is a moment of sharing, as enriching for the person who teaches as for the person who learns. Thus, I am very attached to the fact of being above all listening to the desires and needs of my students, in order to provide them with what suits them, while allowing them to progress effectively. I always try to understand the way of functioning of the person, in order to adapt to him what I propose to him. I want to give him keys that will allow him to work independently, while being present to answer his questions, and follow his development. Finally, I realize that it is important to love playing music, and I want to transmit the passion that drives me to people coming to me; but I also wish to convey the desire to play with music, a subtle nuance but nevertheless opening up a considerable field of possibilities.

Paula - Mainz$32
Trusted teacher: Musik ist sowohl als Beruf als auch als Hobby sehr interessant, aber am Anfang haben wir alle Schwierigkeiten, wenn es darum geht, ein Instrument zu spielen. Aber mit ein wenig Anleitung, harter Arbeit und Geduld kann man die gewünschten Ergebnisse erzielen... ist erwiesen :) Mein Name ist Paula, ich bin 25 Jahre alt und ich unterrichte gerne und arbeite gerne mit begeisterten Menschen, denn wie gesagt, andere zu unterrichten, ist in Wirklichkeit das eigene Unterrichten ;). Meine Studienrichtung ist Musikinterpretation (Cello), am Konservatorium von Gent. Die Art und Weise des Unterrichtens wird dem Niveau des Schülers entsprechen (für Anfänger teile ich den Unterricht in zwei Teile: eine Hälfte Grundlagen der Musiktheorie und die andere Hälfte Cello), und ich werde mein Cello immer dabei haben, um es zu veranschaulichen. Wenn Sie daran interessiert sind, dieses schöne Instrument zu spielen, zögern Sie nicht, mir zu schreiben. Und vergessen Sie nie: Musik ist schön, nicht schwierig.

Mizuki - Budapest$32
Trusted teacher: Learning to play an instrument is a truly rewarding experience, not only because of the beauty it entails but also because it requires patience, time, and a consistent effort. I am committed to delivering a supportive and fun environment along your journey. Currently, students from age 7 to adults in their 50s are in my class, and I teach alongside an active performing schedule. Whichever level you are at, my guidance seeks to simultaneously work on musical understandings as well as technique, as they are inseparable from one another. Students of all ages and levels are welcome to my class (including absolute beginners). I personally started playing the cello at age 9, but it could be earlier or much later. If you are an adult and a beginner, in general, you will have a greater chance of achieving higher goals picking up the cello rather than, let's say, the violin (depending on how much you practice, of course, 😉). The rate mentioned here is for local learners living in Hungary. If you would like to have online lessons with me, my international rate applies. Let's together explore all the fun and beauty cello playing has to offer! Mizuki

Mislav - Vienna$70
Trusted teacher: Hi fellow cellist, You have chosen to play the most wonderful instrument there is. I have been playing the cello for almost two decades and I can tell you it is a beautiful and rewarding journey, and I would not be where I am today without a group of extraordinary teachers and mentors that have been with me along the way and shared their wisdom and experience with me. Now it is my turn to share. I have been teaching for a few years and I love watching my students develop, enjoy the cello, learn new things, and become better at expressing themselves in the universal language of music. Whether you are a complete beginner or an intermediate/advanced level player, I would be happy to offer my guidance and perspective on anything you want to work on and improve. Aside from the technical part of the playing process, I can also be helpful in talking about performance anxiety, specifics of the music major education, preparation for auditions, building up your social media, etc. Contact me to set a lesson using the form below and I look forward to meeting you! Studio Policy This policy is in place to protect the student, the parent of the student, and the teacher and serves to ensure that lessons run smoothly. Lessons/Payment: Students may enroll in lessons at any time. Lessons will take place at the teacher’s studio in Vienna, Austria. Online lessons are facilitated using Skype/Facetime/Zoom. Tuition is paid monthly and is calculated by multiplying the lesson rate by 4 weeks (3 or 5 weeks for certain months). Additional lessons are allowed based on the teacher’s availability. If I am traveling for a big portion of the month, I will let you know in advance, so that the tuition for that month is multiplied by the number of weeks I will be at home. Single lessons in the form of a consultation or master class are available if you are not ready to commit to a monthly package. If you have special circumstances that prevent you from taking weekly lessons or traveling to my studio, please contact me directly and I will do my best to accommodate your situation. Tuition is to be paid at least 24 hours in advance of the first lesson of each month. Tuition is payable through Apprentus. For the consultation/single lesson, a one-time lesson fee is to be paid at least 24 hours in advance of the scheduled lesson. Your timely payment serves as a confirmation of our time agreement. If I do not hear from you nor get the payment at least 24 hours before the lesson, I reserve the right to reschedule and/or cancel the scheduled lesson. Tardiness: The student will contact the teacher by phone if they expect to be late for a scheduled lesson. If a student arrives after their scheduled lesson time has begun, the teacher will complete the lesson in the remaining portion of the time slot. Additional time for student tardiness is not guaranteed. If the teacher arrives after a scheduled lesson has begun, the teacher will give additional time past the time slot to compensate for their tardiness with mutual acceptance of the student’s schedule. Rescheduling/Cancellations: Students must cancel/reschedule lessons by phone or email with at least 24-hour notice. Cancellations are considered excused for illness, family emergency, or severe weather (public school closures). Excused cancellations with sufficient notification will be given a make-up lesson within the month or lesson credit towards the following month. No-shows, cancellations without sufficient notification, or unexcused cancellations will not be given make-up lessons or lesson credits. The teacher may need to cancel a lesson due to illness or a family emergency and/or reschedule due to performance engagements or planned vacations. In this case, the teacher will provide a make-up lesson within the month or apply a lesson credit towards the following month. If desired, the make-up lesson can also be taken online via Skype. If a student cancels a re-scheduled make-up lesson, the lesson will be considered forfeited. Make-up lessons are not guaranteed and are subject to availability. If a make-up lesson is not possible, a lesson credit will be applied toward the following month. Copyright/class recordings: Lessons and seminars are considered intellectual property and may not be recorded (audio or video). The teacher is legally protected in case of a breach of this agreement. The teacher is entitled to immediate termination of the lesson/package without a refund if this rule is broken. The teacher is entitled to legal action in case of copyright infringement. Parental Involvement for younger students: I do not teach children below the age of 10 via Skype as they require hands-on work to form correct playing habits and posture. Students 10 years and younger must have a parent or guardian present at the lesson. The parent will take notes and act as the student’s “home teacher”. Parental involvement is welcomed and strongly encouraged for all students, but not required for students 10 years and older.

Trusted teacher: “The cello is like a beautiful woman who has not grown older, but younger with time, more slender, more supple, more graceful.” — Pablo Casals “I am dying: it's a beautiful word. Like the long slow sigh of the cello: dying. But the sound of it is the only beautiful thing about it.” — Sonya Hartnett “Actually, music gave me the support when I needed it. I would never have gone to college unless I'd gotten a piano scholarship. And now I'm so glad I got to learn to play the cello, which is a different experience, you're flexing a different muscle, but it's beautiful because it is music.” — Jamie Foxx
