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.

As a teacher, my priorities are to create a safe environment in which my students can grow and learn what personally works for them. I believe that a strong technical foundation is important as enjoying the music, as developing a comfortable technique will give students the tools they need to succeed. Above all, cello should be a fun and engaging outlet for people of all ages.

About Sarah

I'm a current undergraduate student pursuing a Bachelors of Music in Washington state. I specialize in classical practice and emphasize strong technique and a collaborative lesson environment. One of the major issues that musicians encounter is tension that manifests most often their hands and wrist

We did online tonight per my request. Michael is so patient and encouraging and he answers my questions that are endless. I feel hopeful that I am learning the correct form and things I definitely would not pick up just trying to teach myself through the book. Thank you Michael!

I am an emotive cellist with two decades experience. I have toured internationally performing my original works including London, Paris, and Berlin.

"Mr. Anderson has been a great influence on my life. As a cello teacher, Mr. Anderson has a wealth of knowledge ranging from the making of the cello to the history of composers to just random facts. Mr. Anderson has been my teacher from the 6th grade to my senior year. During those 6 years, he helped me grow into a great cello player that as a senior, I was able to play a solo with my school orchestra as a senior capstone. He, also, understood, that during this time, not only is his job to teach me cello but also to help and guide me into a better person. I have had many great and amazing teachers in high school and college and Mr. Anderson is among the best. I will never forget those 6 years and will fondly look back at these formative years."

To my young ears, this simply had to be one of the hardest cello pieces with its high range, chromaticism, and famously fast tempo. As my musical career continued I worked on these and other skills to reach a point I could begin learning the piece confidently, and it was only a matter of time before I achieved my goal. Of course, this wasn’ …

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 …

Popular Cello Songs for Adult Beginners

The cello is an absolutely beautiful instrument that calls countless numbers of people to play it. Adult students are sometimes the most challenging to find pieces for as they don’t want to play the “kiddie” songs that many younger students are excited about. These pieces for younger students are short, based on simple folk songs that children know, and generally do not feel challenging enough for many adult students. So what popular cello pieces are out there that adult students can u …
