I have been taking lessons from Johanna for over 2 years as a new student to cello. Older adult student. Johanna has been wonderful giving me confidence and encouragement while I have been learning. Her lessons are tailored to my needs, interests and she combines it with music and practices (drills, etudes, scales, etc) to make it all come together. We work well together and look forward to my lessons! An excellent teacher and now friend!

It has been wonderful teaching you - at our last lesson, I was really starting to hear your cello sing. You have worked hard and even taught me a few new ways to approach teaching the cello.

I am an adult beginner who had previous experience with the violin. Johanna is able to personalize my lessons to fit my learning style and build a solid foundation to continually refine my playing skills. She has a wealth of knowledge about cello technique and a down-to-earth way of expressing exactly how to execute those techniques. She is generous with her time and encouragement. Highly recommend her!

Can't say enough good things about CelloJo! Not only is she punctual and professional but she always makes the lessons fun and tailored to the needs of the specific student.

It has been a blast watching your son learn .... when he gets excited about something he learned or wants to learn, those are the days I am so grateful I get to be a part of his musical journey.

Thank you! I love what I do, but more importantly I love sharing with others that have the same love for music! It has been a pleasure working with you and your daughter ... I will miss her when she returns up north ... until then, we'll have a great time!
