Introduction: My favorite moments in lessons are when I catch the look of amused astonishment on a student's face who just executed on the cello something they thought would be impossible to do just minutes prior. Sometimes that look appears on my own face too... my students tend to learn fast! No matter how daunting learning the cello may seem, the right dose of positivity, patience, and practice always yields results. It helps that I have learned from the best. I have a B.M. from Northwestern University and a M.M. and G.C. from USC. Both universities boast some of the world's greatest cello pedagogues. I also have learned from the great Itzhak Perlman, whose summer music program I attended for five consecutive years. A little more about me: I was a Fellow in the Los Angeles Orchestra Fellowship, in which I gained experience performing with LACO (Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra) as well as mentoring the young talents of ICYOLA (Inner City Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles). I am co-artistic director of Mixtape Series, an innovative concert series whose genre-defying programs have been garnering the attention and acclaim of audiences and arts leaders throughout LA. I was awarded USC's First Prize at USC's Solo Bach Competition. And I have performed as a soloist in Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown LA, the Broad Stage in Santa Monica, and the Auditorio Blas Galindo in Mexico City.

Cello Lessons

Juan helped my daughter to return to playing after an injury that kept he away from he cello for two years. He has worked on not just the song she was to play at her grandparent’s funeral but he was able to work on technique so that she could play without pain

Juan-Salvador is not only incredible talented with the instrument but also a great cello teacher who’s always pushing students to improve technique and worth ethic. Instead of focusing on quantity of pieces, he works with students on pieces in-depth with intonation and fingerings. With him, it’s more about quality not quantity. Overall Juan-Salvador showed me how to improve overall as a cellist, while learning pieces that pushed my abilities.

Juan-Salvador is a consummate professional. He combines that rare mix of being a wonderful teacher and an exceptional cellist in his own right. He is kind, thorough, clear, and patient, and at the same time constantly raises the bar according to his specific student’s capabilities, so you feel like you’re on a constant journey towards improvement. He comes from an amazing lineage of teachers that includes Eleonore Schoenfeld, Ron Leonard, Hans Jensen, and Ralph Kirshbaum, so you’re getting their wisdom too! JS never wastes a moment and his lessons go by quickly (always a good sign). It doesn’t hurt that he has a great sense of humor and is handsome as well. Definitely 5 out of 5 stars, can't recommend him highly enough!

We loved working with Juan. He really focused on the specific areas my daughter needed help with. He brought her playing up to the next level. And the report they had was great to see. They laughed a lot but still got the job done. She ended up first chair in her orchestra!
