Introduction: *Located in Keller, TX; Online lessons also available* Hello! My name is Lisa and my passion is teaching adults and children alike to play the cello. I am available to teach lessons both virtually and in the Fort Worth/Keller, Texas area. Educational background: B.S. in Music Education K12 from Lebanon Valley College in Pennsylvania M.S. in Educational Development and Strategies from Wilkes University in Pennsylvania While I do enjoy performing, my expertise and experience are predominantly in teaching- both in public schools and private lessons. I have taught in public education in two different states over the past 9 years and have been working with students individually and in small groups as part of my studio for 12 years. I have been playing cello for 22 years including participating in symphonies, recording and touring with a Baltimore band, performing for weddings, and playing cover songs in public venues. I love the versatility that cello has to offer! I love working with students of all ages to achieve their musical goals (whatever they may be!), ensure comfort when practicing, and foster a love for cello music. It is in my personal passion to work in this field with individuals from all ability levels and walks of life, and to provide an enjoyable and educational experience that is tailor-fit to each student's unique needs. I look forward to hearing from you and making music together!

I have really enjoyed having a cello teacher again and she is by far the best I’ve had. She knows exactly what I need and is willing to work with me on the stuff I’ve always wanted to learn. Lisa is a fabulous instructor and I truly am enjoying my lessons with her!

I have been taking cello lessons with Lisa for a month and a half and I have already learned so much. I was hesitant to do online lessons, but I honestly really enjoy them so far. She is very patient, kind, and complimentary and knows when to offer constructive feedback. I look forward to continuing my cello education with her.

Ms.Young taught my daughter in school orchestra and in-home lessons. She learned a lot from her to get her started in her cello experience at school. She also got my son started playing the violin with in-home lessons to keep him on track with school orchestra. They both enjoyed taking lessons from her and her dedication to helping younger students.

Lisa is such a great teacher! I am an adult who has been playing cello on and off for most of my life, and wanted to take private lessons to play on a more regular basis. I booked her initially because she was in my price range, and keep continuing lessons because with her help I have seen my cello playing improve immensely. She explains the lessons and material very well, meets me where I am at in regards to where my skill level is at each lesson, is very patient, and is always offering words of encouragement and praise. I highly recommend her for adults and children alike!

I absolutely love Ms. Young. I took lessons from her for multiple years and it helped me improve tremendously. I play the cello and she taught me everything from vibrato and different articulations to harmonics and crazy shifts. She’s extremely kind so I felt comfortable playing anything with her. 10/10 recommend taking lessons from her!
