Introduction: Hi! Thanks for checking out my profile. Learning cello with me will be fun, no-sweat, effective and productive. You will FEEL the JOY of learning. Music can be so intimidating, but I will make sure you have everything you need to feel confident about your progress. My teaching philosophy is, "Every Student Can." Learning music can be easy, fun, fulfilling, and natural - IF you have the right teacher. I have spent years thinking about how to communicate musical concepts. I have videos and products which will help you learn every step of the way. I will stand by you and guide you through every step - starting with where to find a cello! All you need to do is sign up with me and your dreams of playing cello will begin. Whether these lessons are for you or your child, I promise you will be glad you started. There has never been a better time than now - quarantine has made us all go online and you can now have the training you crave in the comfort of your own home! My students are already making great progress online. Come on board! I have a bachelors and graduate degrees in music performance from top universities (UCLA) and have been teaching for over 15 years I am passionate about providing high-quality lessons to students of all ages and levels. I believe in the enormous potential of every student at every age, stage and phase of life. I've taught two-year-olds, children of all ages, college age, adult professionals, and retired seniors. All my students are amazing and I love them! Prior to Covid-19, I was already teaching some students online. Most of my teaching is online now, and I have found it to have many advantages! All my students are doing well via online lessons. I will visit you for an in-person lesson as needed. I will also guide you through the process of obtaining ac cello or piano if you need help with that. Studying with me will be delightful and productive. I love teaching and I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I'm very impressed by how Mr. Oshagan can get an almost 3 year old to learn a technique simply by playing a game. He truly understands that children learn best by play. He is able to successfully break down a concept, by playing a game that results in the technique he's teaching, getting my child to focus and engage. My now 3 year old loves and respects Mr. Oshagan, and is very excited when it comes time for his cello lesson. Mr. Oshagan is also a wealth of information. He teaches the parent how to teach the student, so that practice times are as stress free as possible, but effective and productive. I was specifically looking for a teacher that specialized in teaching cello to small children, and I am so happy we found Mr. Oshagan.

I have been taking cello lessons with Oshagan for over a year now and have nothing but wonderful things to say about him as a person, and as a teacher. His patience, charisma, and enthusiasm is a testament to who he is as a person, and his educational expertise is evident in his teaching style, along with his flexibility and professionalism. I would, without a doubt recommend Oshagan to any aspiring cellist!

I found Oshagan through Suzuki Association website. My 3 year old has been fascinated with cellos and was happy to learn Oshagan is trained to work with little ones. I don’t have a music background but he makes me feel like I’m competent to be my son’s instructor (at this stage). The teacher-parent-child relationship is one that he emphasizes which I love. He’s very responsive, easy to talk to, encouraging, flexible & professional.

I am sure all the other teachers are perfect musicians but Oshagan was fast to answer and my niece she liked him and felt very comfortable with him so she doesn’t want to try the others not to get confused and she is very happy with her decision.

Details: 10 - 13 years old • 4+ yrs of formal training • Yes, the student can read music • Classical • Yes, the student has a cello • 60 minutes • My home, venue, etc.
