Kind Words and Praise

"Mr John Rasmussen is a naturally gifted musician & teacher. Our young son has made amazing progress in less than 1 year. We would highly recommend him for cello instruction. He has a masterful understanding & knowledge of music and is able to convey this in a professional & easy to understand manner. We are grateful to have such a exceptional teacher for our son." -Kaymarie K.

"John's teaching style is calm, patient, and detailed while maintaining the 'air' of expectations to perform beyond the comfort zone. His non-confrontational, no excuses approach is perfect for holding his student accountable to reach and exceed their playing potential. Elizabeth has really excelled in the last 2 years as a Cellist, not only in form/presentation but in her sound as well." -Crystal H.

"He [John] was quick to respond every time I sent him a message. When I met him for the first time, he listened to me very carefully. His soft-spoken and calm nature definitely helped my 5 year-old shy boy to relax and start having fun with him on the first lesson. We are so lucky to have found him!" -Atsuko P.
