Private Cello Lessons - personalized cello instruction

I accept students of all ages and backgrounds, from a beginner level to a collegiate-preparatory level.
I have been developing my teaching method for over ten years. My primary goal is to help my students understand the deep connections in themselves and between others that music can build. With the understanding that musical motivations are highly personalized, I work with each student to precisely define their goals and create a straightforward path towards achievement.
My program is clear and concise, but highly adjusted for each individual. Starting with a strong foundation of technical work including scales, exercises, theoretical and note reading work, I ensure the optimal set up for each student to be able to play with confidence and comfort. I teach a variety of repertoire that is primarily classical, but I often supplement this with pieces from many other genres, which are personalized to excite each student. I encourage all of my students to participate in group-learning environments, and keep them and their parents apprised of camps, competitions, and other performance opportunities available in their area.

About Me

My teaching career began when I started attending Tuacahn High School for the Performing Arts. I performed alongside the Titan Chamber advanced orchestra under the direction of Jason Bonham, the current principal violist for the Las Vegas Philharmonic. With the group, I toured in Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, and Seattle, playing alongside world-renowned musicians such as Mykola Suk, Albert Igolnikov, and Sandra Rivers.
While Tuacahn gave me many wonderful opportunities to expand my love and knowledge of music, I also took the initiative to learn from sources outside the program. I regularly performed with, and received education training from the past concertmaster of the Southwest Symphony (who is also my darling mother),Bonnie Romkey. I performed in and adjudicated for the Southern Utah Performing Arts Festival, and was on the board of directors for the Southern Utah String Festival.
After graduating, I decided to pursue a career as a cellist in Seattle, Washington. There, I began my study under Principal Northwest Sinfonietta cellist Mara Finkelstein, and performed in galleries and private venues. I was the lead cello teacher at Kids In Concert, a Suquamish el Sistema program, and worked at the Applebaum Violin Shop, where I restored the cello that I now play on.

In 2018, I auditioned and was accepted to the Royal Conservatory of Music in Brussels, where I am now studying with Madame Viviane Spanoghe. I teach and perform in Brussels, as well as worldwide via Skype.

María
Cours de violoncelle pour tous! / Cello lessons for everyone! / ¡Clases de Cello para todos! / Cellolessen voor iedereen!
Hello to everyone! My name is María, I am a Venezuelan Cellist. All my musical education was inside the musical program "El Sistema" in Venezuela. This education was based on preparing myself as a better human being though playing cello in orchestras, chamber music and as soloist. I am current studying my Master degree at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel with Jeroen Reuling. In what consist my lessons? 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! Classes can be in person at your house or mine (just in Brussels, Belgium) or via videocall (Skype, Zoom, etc). The schedules are planned according to the time of the student and the teacher. Looking forward to meeting you and work together! Maria.
