Cello was my second musical love. Like many cellists, I was lured in by the sound, then captivated by its high-sensory, full-body playing experience. Practicing cello is a constant balance of strength and beauty. Like all of my instruments, I wish I started younger. Let's play!Become a student!

Yes! Our secret ingredient is our flexible music notation options. Most people think that playing an instrument is hard, but don't give much thought to how hard reading standard music is. We think that most instruments are actually pretty easy to play. When music is easier to read, it's easier to play!
Exact Notes is a set of K-12 virtual music courses for stringed instruments. It features an easy-to-read music notation that was originally designed for kids as young as 4 to read and play songs on their own.
It soon became clear that when a music notation works well for very young kids, it works even better for older students, like teen or adult beginners, students with special needs, and families who want to learn music from home but have no prior experience.When paired with step-by-step tutorials and a package of one-on-one private lessons, we believe it is among the world's leading learn-from-home music courses!
Exact Notes works for beginner-to-advanced music. If you're an older beginner, you'll love how easy it makes playing very advanced music, so you can start playing some of history's favorite songs in days or weeks - like Fur Elise and Moonlight Sonata - instead of years with traditional methods.
Exact Notes has helped private students learn stringed instruments for several years, starting around 2014, although 2018 was our first year publicly offering courses.
