Fred has been giving my daughter Cello lessons for 2 years. She has shown a significant amount of growth in playing the instrument. Fred is patient and professional, he gets along very well with my daughter. She respects him and also values him. She is always looking forward to the next lesson. My daughter played in a school talent show shortly after a couple of months of lessons and did an amazing job. I strongly recommend taking lessons with Fred.Jan 30, 2020
Learning to play the cello with Fred has been great. We've been working together for several months now, meeting weekly for private lessons. I'm a complete novice (if you don't count middle school choir), and Fred has helped me learn the basics of cello and reading music. He's very patient, has a good sense of humor, and manages to strike the right balance between being focused and easy going. Our lessons are engaging. Fred is very sensitive to my progress and gives helpful tips and feedback when we meet. He also has a good knowledge of resources--easy pieces of music and exercises--that help me practice new skills without getting too frustrated during the time between lessons. He's always on-time and is flexible with scheduling, should something come up. I would highly recommend working with him!May 2, 2020

It wasn't until high school though that I fell in love with music. I continued my training in college at the Manhattan School of Music where I earned a degree in Cello Performance and subsequently gained experience playing in professional orchestras in and around New York City.
