Words From Our Members
“Cello Discovery is great because it allows me to take my time and progress through the lessons on my schedule, and re-watch them as often as I need to. Since joining, I’ve discovered that I was weak on some of the fundamentals that my previous instructor skipped. I think Cello Discovery is not only a great course to learn cello but would also be a fantastic and affordable supplement to anyone taking professional lessons.”
“Cello Discovery is organized meticulously to walk someone through everything from the very first step. Honestly, one of the earlier tutorials about how to take the cello out of the bag effectively was way more supportive than I ever would have imagined: I’d never have even thought to ask for that! And the lessons progress from there through every detail and into playing in a way that is clear, digestible, and easy to follow. It is truly an incredible accomplishment.”
“Carolyn is an amazing teacher. I was on my way to big, bad habits. But after joining this community, Carolyn’s feedback has been incredibly eye opening. I knew I was developing bad habits but I wasn’t really sure what they were. Scouring the Internet for answers was confusing and frustrating. You are safe on this site and in such good hands with Carolyn!”
"I have developed a vibrato thanks to your videos...the warmth of the vibrato is just fabulous. Your left hand videos (and personalized help) and vibrato videos, along with the note reading, were just what I wanted and couldn't find anywhere else."
"Hi Carolyn - I am very happy with how (my progress is) going. I love that I can go at my own pace, and while the progress is slow it doesn't feel like high pressure. Cello Discovery is very well done!"
"Hi Carolyn, I just wanted to take a minute out from my practice to tell you how much I am enjoying the “Interactive Music”.
"Carolyn Hagler is not only a wonderful cellist and teacher, but also a great person. She always strives for excellence while masterfully weaving motivation and fun into every lesson. She always demonstrated a wonderful combination of focus and high standards, in an environment where empathy & understanding were king. As a person, Carolyn is a caring individual with a very fun personality. I highly recommend her as a cello teacher."
We've felt so blessed to have you in our lives these last two years. You are amazing! From the moment you took time from a crazy day to help Sean fall in love with the cello, you've done nothing but instill love and excitement for music."
"Carolyn Hagler is a stellar teacher! She provides rigorous instruction in a fun atmosphere that makes her students fall in love with music! Moreover, Carolyn makes kids believe in themselves and their abilities. She positively impacts students as individuals in addition to making them excellent musicians. Having Carolyn as a teacher is a life changing experience for (beginning) musicians."
What a precious give you have given Paige this year - the gift of music. I will always be grateful for that. Thank you for all you do."
"Dear Mrs. Hagler,
You have been a very motivating and inspiring music teacher for Tariq. He has really enjoyed taking your class and his willingness to continue orchestra comes from your patience and dedication. I really feel he is very fortunate to have such an inspiring music teacher like you. Thank you for all you have taught him."
