Michael was methodical and diligent. Excellent experience.

Michael has been teaching my 11yo cello as a beginner and we are having a great experience. Michael is patient, attentive and encouraging. Within a short time, she has learned so much and enjoys practicing for class. Michael is considerate and kind when dealing with kids and the online experience has been seamless. I highly recommend him!
Jerry M.
I am an early intermediate level cello player. At the outset of the year I had set some very specific goals that I hoped to achieve and set out to find a teacher that would help me achieve those. Michael has done just that. I have taken lessons now from Michael for about 6 months and cannot say enough good things about him. He is extremely knowledgeable. He is always well prepared, and ready to make progress on advancing my skills with the instrument. He is patient and ready to work within my own limitations. He is always encouraging and positive, and constructive in his critique. I would highly recommend Michael, whether you are a beginner or a seasoned cellist.

Teaching cello is one of my great passions, and I've spent a LOT of time doing it, reflecting on it, and honing my skills as an educator. I've taught extensively in both English and Spanish, in person and online, one-on-one and in the classroom, cello and keyboard harmony and music theory.

I hold degrees from The Juilliard School (bachelors) and the New England Conservatory of Music (masters). I have focused a lot of my teaching work on adult beginners, and created an online cello course for them that has been purchased by nearly 1000 aspiring cellists, and which is the highest-rated of its category on the platform. As a player, I've spent time at Tanglewood, where I've had the good fortune to play for Yo-Yo Ma, and I'm currently a Fellow with the New World Symphony, where I've sat principal under such conductors as Miguel Harth-Bedoya, Juanjo Mena, Michael Tilson Thomas, and Susanna Mälkki.

Much of my teaching over the past couple of years has been online, and I've gained the ...

I have had many good teachers in my career as a musician. But I have been lucky to have had a few GREAT teachers. It is easy to settle with "just ok", particularly when taking lessons as a novice. However, the difference between a "good" teacher and a "great" teacher at any point in your journey as a student can hugely impact your success and relationship with the instrument.

As a teacher, I aim to be great for my students. For beginners, we focus on developing a solid base - getting comfortable with the instrument, understanding it, building fundamental skills such as how to hold the bow and basic fret board patterns. From there, we begin learning to read music, which I still find to be the most valuable skill a musician can have. Learning to read music notation is easiest at a young age, so I like to begin as soon as the student is ready. However, as a student of improvisational music, I like to introduce ear-training and improvisation as well. It is a fun way to teach students how

I've been teaching cello for over 27 years and my students have gone on to play in youth orchestras, attend PMEA and ASTA events or go to college as a music major. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to improve your playing skills and as time goes on you'll be able to play at a more advanced level. I specialize in Traditional Classical violin, typically use Essential Elements 2000, Samuel Applebaum methods, Suzuki methods and traditional scales and etude books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

"I am an adult beginner, who was a bit intimidated by online lessons, but had no other options locally. I'm so glad that I found Jessica! She is both patient, and supportive; she is highly adept at finding what works for the individual, and personalizes instruction based on what you need to improve. She is also very accommodating, and understanding when there are scheduling changes. I look forward to my lessons every week; they are so much fun!"

"Jessica is a very good and kind instructor. Perfect for my 12-year-old who has a sensitive heart when being corrected by others. She is patient and takes the time to come up with creative solutions when something isn't working as it should. As a parent, I appreciate the detailed notes she sends me letting me what happened in the lesson and what she'd like done during practice time. She also provides links to additional instruction videos if she feels like her explanation isn't making sense. I feel like she really goes beyond and wants to help them learn, not just assign practice pieces. Thanks, Jessica! - so glad we found you!"

"In 10 months, Susanna has taken my 6th grader, a beginner, to acceptance into our region's youth symphony, and her school is putting her in 8th grade orchestra instead of 7th grade because she's so far advanced. Susanna accomplished this with the perfect balance of serious hard work and fun, done with a smile, kind words, and an uncanny ability to pinpoint what the student is able to improve at the right time. We're also starting younger brother on violin with Susanna in a couple of weeks, because she's great."

What is the Suzuki Cello Method?

The Suzuki method, founded in 1945 by violinist Shinichi Suzuki as the Talent Education Movement, is one of the most enduring teaching methods, or pedagogies for young string players. Suzuki’s main goal for his music education system was to give students a “noble spirit,” which would instill respect and cooperation through his method. The method was brought to America in the 1960s by John D. Kendall, and today the Suzuki Association of the Americas instructs new teachers and studen …

Is My Cello Too Small? How to Know You've Found the Right Fit

At some point, your young cellist will grow out of their instrument. Growing out of an instrument is an awkward time for everyone involved and it is not something that happens suddenly. More often than not, finding that it is time to upgrade to a larger instrument is a slow realization that something is wrong in the musical force. If you can consult a professional, please do so! This decision is beneficial for the long run although it presents its own challenges upon the switch.  What Cell …

What Does it Take to Become a Professional Cello Player?

Pursuing a career in music is a risky decision, because by the nature of the industry few artists can “make it big.” Most artists aren’t pop stars, or even full-time career musicians, and all musicians also teach to remedy this. There are many paths to becoming a professional cello player, and depending on where you start it might be easy or hard to earn a reputation and start making money. I followed an academic path, studying classical music at university and then continuing my research …
