Cello Made Acessible and Fun for All Ages
I hope I can teach you in the way that my first cello teacher taught me to fall in love with this instrument! I recently returned from performing in a music festival in Sweden. There I experienced something more than just fine tuning my skills and meeting other musicians that were as dedicated as myself to the learning of our instrument. We learned why it is that we spent our lives playing music...it is because of our love we have for our cello. Let the journey begin today with your 1st lesson!
About Effy H.

Hello, Hej hej, Wie Gehts, Ni Hao, Konnichiwa! I am available for online lessons worldwide! I have over 25 years of exeperience and have taught music for well over 15 years. I have experience teaching all levels from beginning to advanced. I'm classically trained as a cellist and string player and use both standard and non-traditional teaching methods to enhance the student's own strengths, musicality, and dexterity. I received my music education from the University of California of Irvine and am constantly continuing my education by attending workshops to keep up-to-date on music trends and techniques used for the professional musician in today's fast-paced world. I'm patient and understand that each student is unique with comes with a distinct set of skill sets that they bring to the table. As such, I am dedicated to making sure every student will achieve their lifelong musical goals and aspirations.

Ms. Effy has been teaching my son violin for the past three years (from age 5-8). She is simply amazing! She is patient, encouraging, an excellent teacher, and my son has so much fun with her. He looks forward to her lessons every week!
