Cello Lessons in Sunset Park, NY
In a lot of ways, having one-on-one cello lessons with a private teacher beats taking them in a class. It's easy to get left behind in a class with other students. When you take private cello lessons your teacher knows you better and can assist you directly with learning cello technique.

My 16 year old previously tried to teach herself how to play electric guitar and ended up giving up on it. After only 2 months with Mary Catherine she picked it back up and quickly improved, her motivation is through the roof and she practices constantly. She even started writing her own music. Having taken guitar lessons myself in the past, I am pleasantly suprised at how much she learned so quickly. The return on investment in the lessons is definitely more than I expected.Evelina Teacher: Mary Catherine P.
About the Cello
The cello developed from the bass violin, first referred to by Jambe de Fer in 1556, which was originally a three-string instrument. The first instance of a composer specifying the bass violin may have been Gabrieli in Sacrae symphoniae, 1597.
