Thumbtack Customer

Mr. Goering has the rare ability to effectively isolate issues in technique, and communicate strategies to handle phrasing and the artistry of his medium. As a trained violinist with an interest in learning to play the cello I witnessed first hand how well Mr. Goering was able to demonstrate what was wrong and what was right in my fledgling form particularly in my bow hold and pull, and taught me musically how to think differently about approaching a phrase or a piece as a whole. From early pedagogical tools to the Bach Cello suites and beyond, Mr. Goering clearly has an advanced pedagogical understanding and knows when to suggest how to push a student further and when to let them digest new concepts. Recommended for ALL levels of student from beginner to coaching.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    For in person lessons, I charge $50 for 30 minutes, $65 for 45 minutes and $80 for an hour. I offer a discount on virtual lessons. They are $40 for 30 minutes, $55 for 45 minutes and $70 for an hour. The first lesson is free and I provide free lessons for student referrals.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    During the free trial lesson, I introduce myself and get to know the student before starting with teaching. I like to know the student’s plans and goals. I am a big believer in helping my students play with ease. So I assign scales, etudes, and short pieces before working on any major sonatas or concertos. Developing practice habits that will create progress is a key philosophy to me.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a Bachelor and Masters degree from Lynn Conservatory in Boca Raton, Florida. I also have a Performance Certificate from Mount Royal Academy and an Artist Diploma from The Glenn Gould School of Music in Toronto, Canada where I studied with John Kadz and Desmond Hoebig. After graduating, I performed with three professional orchestras in Ontario and maintained a large cello studio.
