I studied with Kim from 2012 to 2015. I started as a beginner, and I did not have much time to practice since I had a full time job. She taught me how to practice efficiently and went throughout good practice plans with me. She does a recital in every half year with her students. That motivated me a lot, and I was satisfied with my performance. :)

I have over 20 years of experience and have worked with individuals ranging from 6 to 76 years old. I value quality as both a performer and an educator but never at the expense of enjoyment! As a teacher, I share my knowledge through individualized lessons, catering to the goals of the student. As a performer, I play a range of genres and eras and will arrange specific works upon request.

I found Victor here on this website for a guitar teacher for my son and when it came down to needing to hire a teacher Victor had followed up with me. So I took advantage of the first free lesson and he's been my sons guitar teacher ever since. Victor is very patient and knowledgeable, the personal attention and care he gives to each individual child is wonderful. You can tell that he has a love for music and this is his passion. I've spoken to other families that he teaches(some for several years) and they all agree. He works well with my son on incorporating styles and songs he is interested in as well as teaching music theory and basics. My son was a beginner 6 months ago and now he is playing full songs confidently. He loves coming to guitar class and learning new techniques, and songs. I plan on continuing until my son can pay for lessons himself. I highly recommend Victor Crisen.

I took cello lessons from Dorotea with no prior cello experience, although I did have prior experience playing piano. She was a wonderful teacher, and is incredibly skilled at playing cello. She did a great job explaining techniques in ways that I could understand, and she helped me learn what to listen for so that when I was practicing, I could correct my own mistakes. She would also spend extra time on any techniques I was having trouble with to make sure I learned them well. On top of all this she is just very friendly and a nice person! I highly recommend her, whether you have any prior music experience or not! The only reason I am not still taking lessons with her is that I moved to another state.

I have taught children to play string instruments for 11 years using the Suzuki method! The Suzuki Method requires parent involvement, daily listening and practice as well as regular lesson attendance. It is an educational method that addresses the needs of the whole child with the primary focus of developing life skills through the vehicle of music study. I help families learn to communicate more effectively and practice productively. Each and everyone of our students achieves superior playing ability and chartacter! Ms. Glenda

If you are interested in playing the cello and you are looking for somebody to teach and inspire you, I would highly recommend Maxfield. I was 32 when I bought a cheap cello, and I was introduced to Maxfield through friends of friends while I was looking for a cello instructor in Madison, WI. I had absolutely no idea what I was against as I started my lessons. I had played some recorder, drums, harmonica and guitar in the past, but I had had no experience with a bowed instrument. I also lacked any proper musical training, apart from music classes in middle-school. Later on it became apparent that I wasn't going to be the best pupil: I had a full-time job, and I wasn't putting in the necessary time practicing on the cello to gain better command of the instrument. There are a few things about Maxfield that made me hang on and continue my classes with him for nearly two years: - First, his love for the cello, his excitement when sharing something about his instrument with you, the pleasure he gets from music, it is contagious. This may sound cheesy to some, but, to me, this one goes at the very top. - Second, even when I had not made any progress since the week before, Maxfield would always put something new on the table at our lessons, maybe a new exercise, a new piece or a simple snippet of a bigger piece (Bach? Bartok? Michael Jackson?), a new way of fixing my poor posture, an anecdote on why we do something in that specific way. This was important, especially because new info/experiences develops a feeling of progress, and that is essential for my motivation. (I would like to open parentheses to add that I am not a native speaker, so he had to play around with examples/explanations at times to make sure I *really* get it, and that he never made me feel guilty for slacking, which would have been a motivation killer.) - Third, he can access the full range of what the cello can do. This is his instrument, no doubt. I very much enjoyed the times he would pull out some (usually complicated) piece he had studied to show why a certain exercise is important, or how a seemingly complex progression of sounds is actually quite simple, or how people have taken a simple technique and gone crazy with it. It's nice to see what's possible on the cello, even if when you know you can't possibly do it yourself. I put this last, because chances are, people who identify themselves as "cello instructors" will be sufficiently proficient on the instrument, especially for someone at my level. I did perform on stage with my cello once, when I accompanied a Turkish folk song at a cultural event on campus, in front of ~250 guests. Although the lack of experience showed, I hit all the right notes at the right times, and I consider this my highest achievement on the cello. Nowadays, when people ask me about my favorite instrument, I tell them "even though I can't do it right, it is the cello." I believe this is Maxfield's highest achievement with me.

Beth provided approximately a year of in home cello lessons to my beginner level 8 year old daughter. Beth is a committed instructor who also offers extensive information about how children can be exposed to music in their community. She is very attentive to the details of musical instruction and her individual lesson exceeds the basic "A,B,C's" of how to play a cello.

I’ve been a huge fan of cello since I was – as my husband likes to say – a “two-footer,” meaning a small child. I finally began taking cello lessons after getting my first job out of college, but made only little progress while struggling to unlearn bad habits – until I met Dr. Kozlov! Within two months of studying with Dr. Kozlov, my husband noticed that I began to play markedly better, in both technique and confidence. Dr. Kozlov is down to earth, despite his impressive academic and professional background, and apt to explain music in an accessible and fun way. When Dr. Kozlov demonstrates a brief passage on his cello, for those few seconds you get a glimpse of the breathtaking and transporting beauty of his music. When he explains how you can do the same, you will be inspired and motivated to continue practicing. However, as extraordinary as he is of a performer and instructor of the cello, Dr. Kozlov is such a likable person even without his instrument. Respectful and respectable, he has become a friend to my husband and me (not just because he has helped me tackle 2 movements of the Bach suites!). In him you will find an excellent teacher, a friend, role model and an inspiration. If you are looking for a cello teacher, look no further!

My 11 year old daughter just started lessons with Kevin and I couldn't be happier with the service he provides. He is wonderful with her as a beginner and he clearly has the experience and ability to be an excellent instructor for higher level students as well

Geneviève has a true knack for teaching! She's an amazing musician, and that quality definitely translates to her lessons. She teaches in a way that makes advancement in cello playing, although challenging, completely enjoyable. I feel as if I am able to talk to her as a best friend, not just a cello teacher! I struggled often with my finger positions on the cello (considering I'm used to having frets on a guitar), but her tips and tricks got me through it! I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a cello teacher.

Emily was outstanding when teaching me how to play the violin. She came to my house for around an hour and she spent that time well. If I remember correctly, we started with tuning and scales then we worked on songs and she also helped me with the notes at the end of the lesson! If I had a good lesson she would give me a sticker, which was one of my favorite parts. Emily was always on time and was patient with me and made sure I understood what we were doing. There isn't anything that I think she should improve on that I can recall! Emily is fantastic and I strongly recommend her for lessons (:
