Extra information

Each lesson will focus on technical, musical, listening, memorization, and sight-reading skills for every student. Each lesson is carefully planned and tailored according to the student’s abilities and needs. As the student progresses and develops, Sofiko will look to introduce elements of historical background, style and harmony in order to encompass a fuller understanding of the instrument and so as to develop the student’s musical education. For junior beginners (3,5 - 9 years old), in order to establish good technique, gain a wide range of repertoire and to maintain a strong rate of progression, it is recommended that lessons are arranged on a twice weekly basis. It isn’t just the student either, the parents are involved in the learning process too, encouraging regular home practice to achieve the best results possible.

Cello lessons for everybody! Learn and improve your skills with me.
One of the most wonderfull string instrument is the cello. If you want to learn how to play cello or just to continue improving your skills do not hesitate to contact me. I have a lot of experience teaching cello and for me, the most important thing in my lessons is learn well and enjoy. Ussually, my lesson programme is start with a short warm up (technique exercises) to continue with different cello pieces chosen by the students. I have a lot of pop and actual music cello pieces for all levels. In addition, I'm familiar with methods like ABRSM, Suzuki, Feuillard, Duport, Popper and Piatti.

Miriam
CELLO & MUSIC LESSONS FOR ALL AGES AND LEVELS WITH A PROFESSIONAL CELLIST WITH 8 YEARS OF TEACHING EXPERIENCE (IN PERSON AND ONLINE)
Are you in love with the sound of the cello but have never dared to start playing it? Have you been playing the cello as an amateur and now need an expert to guide you? Do you want to develop and improve your cello and musical skills? Do you need reinforcement lessons? Would you like to prepare for entrance exams to the conservatory? Would you love to join a youth orchestra and need help preparing for the auditions? ... These are the private cello lessons you were looking for! My name is Miriam, I am a graduate in Master of Classical Music at KASK & Conservatorium in Ghent. I've been teaching cello to children, teenagers and adults for 8 years, so I've acquired the necessary experience to be able to adapt to the different and personal needs and objectives of each student. My teaching methodology focuses on creating a friendly and relaxed environment (which does not mean undemanding!) in which students feel confident to express their own ideas and worries. In my lessons I focus on technical and postural questions, but we also reflect together on the music, as I like my students to develop their own musical ideas and not just imitate the teacher. Contact me now to schedule your first lesson and take the first step toward your musical aspirations! :)

Renata
Personalized cello lessons (cello, cello)
Custom instrument classes. We can start from scratch or also work on new techniques and advance your level. In addition, we can prepare the music that you like the most, beyond the preparation exercises. Since I am a composer, I can adapt the music or song that you like the most to our instrument!

Sergio
Higher Graduate (with masters) in Cello and Conducting teaches music at all levels
My teaching method is scrupulously adapted to each student I have, regardless of the subject to work on (musical language, cello, music history, analysis, conducting, etc.) I always apply the Belgian teaching model, where I trained with my master's degrees in Conducting (Antwerp) and Historical Cello (Brussels). According to this model, the main thing is a living and practical teaching, taking understanding and not memory as the main learning engine.

Andrea

María

Hello to everyone! My name is María, I am a Venezuelan Cellist. All my musical education was inside the musical program "El Sistema" in Venezuela.

Cello classes for all levels (beginner, intermediate and advanced), it does not matter if you have never played cello before or if you are already studying, the important thing is to help you achieve the goals you want with this beautiful instrument. To have better results with practice, if it is necessary to help you with music theory, I will help you. As well, if you're looking for help in orchestral excerpts for auditions, I'm here for you! For kids, parental support is also important during some lesson, we are all a team and we need to work together to achieve the goals!

Maksim
[Skype, Face Time, Zoom] Online cello lessons from the teacher Frankfurt/Darmstadt/Mannheim, beginner-advanced
I study at the Musikhochschule Mannheim and at the Blackmore Academy Berlin. I have worked both as an orchestra musician with renowned orchestras such as the Hr-Symphonieorchester and the Museumsorchester Frankfurt and also as a soloist with the Geringas Chamber Orchestra. I have attended many international courses with, among others: David Geringas, Reinhard Latzko, Jan Ickert and Martti Rousi. I teach in German, Russian and English. I design the lessons according to the student's wishes. I am particularly interested in further development in order to cope with increasingly difficult tasks, for example the section leader in the orchestra. I attach great importance to literature from all stylistic epochs from baroque to modern, including popular music. I like to teach beginners according to Gabriel Koeppen's cello school, volumes 1-3 and the Suzuki method. I regularly arrange works for my students' cello sambles and, at the request of the students, music that has not yet been rewritten for cello.

Osian
Cello, singing and theory lessons from bilingual Welsh and English speaker
Hi my name is Osian and I’m a cellist from South Wales. I’ve taught children of many ages and standards and I really feel privileged to be a part of someone’s musical and personal development. Music lessons can be a way of reaching the concert platform or it could be a way of expressing yourself and being creative, wether it’s a career path or not. I grew up playing and singing where my first priority was to fall in love with music and learn to perform it to the best standard that I could do and that’s what I’d like to encourage my students to aim for too. I’m a BMus Hons Scholar from The Royal Academy of Music and I’m not studying at a masters lever at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam.

Laurence
Cello lessons for classical, contemporary and pop music lovers!
Cello lessons for all levels! You have probably heard cello in classical music, in baroque music, in contemporary music, but also in pop, electronic and folk music. Cello is one of the most versatile instruments, and wherever your interest lies, I would love to accompany you down that road. There are so many ways to learn a new instrument, let's discover that together! I am also currently a teacher at Leerorkest in Amsterdam.

Paula
Cello and music theory - instructions for beginners and intermediate students.
Music is very interesting both as a profession and as a hobby, but in the beginning we all face difficulties when it comes to playing an instrument. But with a little guidance, hard work and patience you can get the results you want... it's proven :) My name is Paula, I'm 25 years old and I enjoy teaching and working with enthusiastic people, because as I said, teaching others is actually teaching yourself ;). My field of study is music interpretation (cello), at the Ghent Conservatory. The way of teaching will suit the level of the student (for beginners I divide the lessons into two parts: half basic music theory and the other half cello), and I will always have my cello with me to illustrate. If you are interested in playing this beautiful instrument, do not hesitate to write to me. And never forget: music is beautiful, not difficult.

Anna
Playing the cello makes you beautiful both inside and outside!
Hello, my name is Anna, and I’ve been playing the cello for 22 years. I have a masters degree both in performative arts and teaching cello from the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest, Hungary. I have acquired a wide range of tools to inspire my pupils individually in their step-by-step development. I teach learners of all ages and levels, my students are 5-60 years old, from beginner to advanced. When I was 15, my cello teacher asked me to teach her younger pupils. I was enthusiastic of teaching, and I still have the same enthusiasm, but much more knowledge and experience. Playing the cello makes you beautiful both inside and outside! While playing the cello, I pay attention to the music, my technique, my body and my emotions. I focus on the same aspects while teaching, so we will improve your musical and technical abilities, as well as your awareness of your own body and emotions. These can (and should) be improved regardless of age and level so if you're interested, sign up for my cello lessons!
