I employ the use of ABRSM and TRINITY Curriculum for my beginner/Intermediate students, mostly because of the comprehensiveness I find in the curriculum.
We make use of the Suzuki Cello Methods as well to help with Aural perception and achieve some extent of independence during performances.

For our advanced Students, We use the Trinity Licentiate program which is equivalent to a University Master's degree. Master Classes are held twice every month featuring different teachers and different Techniques for better performance.

Charles has been great with my early skill development. He continues every week to stress the basic for my violin training. He remains supportive and patient. We have had lessons in person and online. I am beginner at 65 years old and I would highly recommend Charles Bossert as a violin, and other strings instruments instructor. Thank You Charles for your help.

Megan explained in very clear terms how to position the cello and began to explain the fingerings. She instills confidence in her students and is extremely approachable. I know I will enjoy future lessons with Megan!

Jessie L.
Megan is absolutely THE BEST! After 10 online classes with her, as an adult student, I cannot believe how much I have improved, how much confidence I have gained, and most incredibly, how much passion I have grown for cello. Megan is so kind, encouraging, genuine, positive, passionate, and knowledgeable! Her instructions are so concise and effective, that she can pinpoint exactly what I need to improve and offer the best explanation/technique. I have small hands with short pinky fingers that used to lead to a lot of frustrations. After meeting Megan, I have learned to comfortably face my disadvantages while minimizing the negative impact by her wonderful encouragement and practical techniques. She is WAY BETTER than my other teachers, and I had both online and in-person experiences prior to studying with Megan. I felt so fortunate to have found Megan as my cello teacher!

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!

"Excellent, patient instructor. She didn't let my bad habits go unchallenged, giving me kind and consistent correction. The seemingly small corrections to form reduced fatigue and improved my playing. She was always great at communication. The best part for me was she did not insist I as an older adult learner practice from an elementary book. She suggested interesting pieces and studies that challenged me without overwhelming. Highly recommend Jessica for all age levels."

"Dwight Anderson was a fabulous cello teacher for my son from preschool through high school. He was, in fact, the best music teacher we ever had for either of my children - through all of their piano, violin and cello instruction. He was consistent and nurturing, able to push the boundaries of expectation, and able to inspire. Although he only taught my son, he influenced my daughter as well by encouraging them to both participate in the GDYO. He was masterful in choosing certain pieces of work that inspired my son to practice and to perform. Even though he certainly assigned scales and etudes, he always allowed him at least one piece of his choosing that gave him such a sense of accomplishment. For example, my son learned to play the prelude of the Bach suite in G even before he started the 1st grade. That is still his favorite piece! And, starting around 7th or 8th grade, he let his pick which "big work" they would tackle for the following year. We went through the Lalo cello concerto, Faure's Elegie, the Saint-Saens concerto, Popper's Hungarian Rhapsody, Dvorak's Rondo, and finally, "The Dvorak", for his senior project in high school. Even though my son didn't always learn all the movements of the concerto or learn it to perfection, Dwight's partnership with my son in picking these pieces gave him such a love of playing the cello! What a wonder and a gift!
In the years since high school, Dwight has kept up with my son, even though he chose a non-music career path and a life in the north east. We will be forever grateful for Dwight and the influence he has had on my son in particular, and, for his influence on the whole family for deepening our appreciation of beautiful music. Thank you, Dwight!"

I approached her and told her what an inspiration she was to me and found how genuinely kind and willing to help she was. After our vacation, I was able to continue emailing her. She gave the best advice, preparing me for concerts, recommending music, and even helping me with technique from a thousand miles away! Genevieve truly made me feel comfortable and inspired me to pursue cello further."

"I originally learned how to play the cello on my own in my school's orchestra. When I went to college and decided to bring my cello with me, I knew it was time to take proper lessons like everyone else. Brenda was able to help me iron out all of the bad habits I had developed over seven years of playing cello with no formal corrections. She clearly cared about me and my interests as a student. I can confidently say Brenda equipped me with the tools, techniques, and attitude I needed to play the cello for the rest of my life."

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 …
