I Luv Cello Program
Where Aspiring Cellists Tune In!
I Luv Cello provides a structured approach to learning the cello. Each course contains multiple lessons which you can study at your own rate. New courses are being offered all the time.
This program, developed by Christine Williams an expert teacher with many years of experience, was carefully designed after teaching hundreds of students. The teaching / learning process has been refined to one of simplicity and success.
In the I Luv Cello program Christine will teach you:
- excellent technique
- perfect posture
- left and right hand skills
- wonderful practice skills *
* Learning how to practice is indeed a skill in itself. Christine will guide you through the process of developing YOUR approach to practicing.
Using these skills, you will be able to play with a beautiful tone, ease and enjoyment, giving you the freedom to express yourself through music.
Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. – George Bernard Shaw

Benefits of Online Learning
Access to Teachers
Often location can determine what one can and cannot do. One of the most compelling reasons for Online Learning is you can have access to a qualified, reputable teacher from the comfort of your own home ~ regardless of where you live.
One happy benefit of online lessons is the cost. Quality 1-on-1 lessons can range from $80 to $100 / hour making music lessons less affordable to many people. Online Learning is a fraction of the cost, thereby making it an accessible and affordable solution.
Another delightful benefit to online lessons is the lack of travel time. Students can travel an hour or more to their lessons making their lesson day a 3 hour commitment. With no travel time you get more ‘day’ for other activities or to devote to practice. Time is, as they say, very precious!
The cool thing about online learning is it lets you set a schedule that works best for you. You can fit your lessons in whenever you like – if your schedule changes so can your lesson time. This type of flexibility is simply not possible taking 1-on-1 lessons.
The above video is the first in the Hello Cello Series 1 course. If you would like to see more of this Series before purchasing the first 3 lessons are available for free on the Academy page of our sister site The Cello Girl.
If you want even more videos, the Cello Girl website there are free cello technique tutorials and a few inexpensive song tutorials. Just head over to the Tutorial page.
How It Works
Making the complicated … simple! I have found this to be hugely successful in my studio and think you will find the same.
Once you have access to the video you can repeat them as many times as necessary until you have mastered the lesson.
All course videos are shot using three different camera angles and are professionally edited to focus on the most important content of the lessons. For example if the lesson is mainly on the left hand techniques, that is what you will see.
Access to each lesson within a course has been set to allow the time to master the content of one lesson before moving on to the next skill. Often we are not aware of how much time to give to developing a certain skill.
All lessons are presented in a logical and sequential manner so progressing feels natural and easy. It is for this reason I strongly recommend progressing through the course material in order.
Concepts are presented in an easy to understand format, often using analogies and stories to get the point across. The idea is to use simple ideas, repertoire and easy to accomplish tasks, that make learning the cello possible.
Other Resources: In addition to the video lessons, I will be publishing resources that will be invaluable in helping you on your journey. You will find these on my BLOG. A Community Forum could also, with sufficient demand, be set up where like minded, passionate cello learners can share information, get answers and receive feedback on your posts.
