Learning How To Play The Cello Has Never Been Easier

Maybe you don’t have access to transportation or a cello teacher where you live.  By learning cello online, you can learn at your own convenience.  You don’t have to worry about taking the subway or driving several miles to a cello lesson.  It doesn’t matter if you are in Alaska, Russia, or China, you will have access to an online library of lessons anywhere with an internet connection.  You can also schedule virtual one-on-one lessons with Olga according to your schedule.

Regardless if you are a beginner cellist or you’re preparing for a big solo at Juilliard, we can take you to the next step of your musical journey.  It doesn’t matter your skill level, we can work at your pace to achieve your goals and make sure you are ready for your big performance.  Together, we can set goals that bring you one step closer to achieving your dream of playing the cello (and to make the world’s largest army of amazing cellists along the way).

To be the best, you must learn from the best. You will get to experience Olga’s passion for music, art, and performance through online cello education.

It works because we “flip” the way in which you learn.

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.wpengine.com we are applying this model to the learning of the cello and seeing great results.
