Benjamin Fryxell

Award-Winning Young Cellist Seeking to Teach Others my Craft
Teaching Philosophy

I love teaching and will do all in my power to maximize the value of your lessons. As long as you are prepared (I will help you set up practice methods on the first lesson), you should go very far. If you work hard, you should see consistent progress and be well on your way to achieving your musical goals!

“Mr. Fryxell is an excellent teacher. He has a great number of skills from which he can draw, and does so readily. He can help with just about anything, ranging form fingerings to practice techniques. He's very willing to help, and also quite patient. I look forward to continuing my lessons with him!”
