Learn Cello from a professional with over a decade of teaching experience!
I'm an experienced and dedicated cellist, having played with Orchestras and Chamber groups throughout my state. My lessons are focused on relaxation, and am as laid back or strict as the student needs. Whether you're a beginner or advanced, shooting to be a church player or a pro, I have taught students for that and am the teacher for you.

I've been taking lessons for the past three weeks and I must say Nicholas is a very educated instructor. He is very clear in his instructions and patiently waits for you to understand his topics. I highly recommend him to other new violin players. I plan to continue my lessons with him in the future.

My first lesson with Nicholas was chalked full of valuable information. He is clearly very knowledgeable of his craft, and has a very easy to understand teaching style. I look forward to more lessons with him. Very satisfied.
