Learning How To Play The Cello 
Has Never Been Easier

Taking cello lessons online changes the way you learn the cello, allowing students to learn in a “Flipped Classroom” environment. The student can log into the website and view over 400 recorded lessons in beautiful widescreen format.

The “Flipped Classroom” is a new model in education that is made easy and convenient with the Internet. The model offers an alternative method to the traditional model of learning, which has led to increasingly poor educational outcomes in America. With this new model, instead of being lectured by your instructor or teacher and then sent off to do homework, the model is “flipped,” and the student views pre-recorded lectures at their own speed.

This better prepares them to interact with the teacher during live time together. At olgaredkina.com we are applying this model to the learning of the cello and seeing great results.

Olga's Students speak for themselves. Join them today!

"I had no background in music when I started with Olga two years ago. I had never even seen a cello! I emailed Olga and asked if she could teach a 55 year old with no music knowledge. She said yes and my wonderful journey began. I’ve had many classes with Olga since and I simply cannot praise her enough."
