I bring a creative and positive approach to each lesson, and have the ability to connect with students of all ages and backgrounds. Students receive weekly private lessons and have the opportunity to play in one of the school's orchestras.
I have been teaching cello lessons in Seattle for over 20 years to both children and adults.
" I just wanted to pass along this little story and a special thanks to you, Todd, and to your family for the special gift of music in our home. Your teaching and your family's support of our children's musical journey and education is, to be plain, a really big deal. We are deeply grateful for your instruction and support."
"As an adult learner, I had my own ideas of what had worked for me in the past, but when I let go of those and embraced exactly what Todd recommended as my cello teacher, I made remarkable improvements! I have had five music teachers (various instruments) in my life, and Todd Kovell is the best."
My teaching success includes preparing many young students to major in music at the college level. My students have attended the Interlochen and Marrowstone music camps, have been the principal cellist in the Cascade Youth Symphony, played in the Seattle Youth Symphony. I have taught adult beginners who have gone on to study with prestigious players such as Nathan Whittaker.
