Welcome to Victoria Cello Lessons! My name is Monique and I have been teaching cello in the Victoria area for seven years. I have 28 years of musical training and have a Bachelor of Music Degree from the University of Victoria. I am available for teaching and for playing at weddings, parties, and other special events.

I am currently teaching the following instruments:

  • Cello (Beginner/Advanced Classical and Fiddle Styles)
  • Violin (Beginner/Intermediate Classical and Fiddle Styles)
  • Viola (Beginner Classical and Fiddle Styles)
For more information on lessons and rates on any of those instruments check out my lessons page here.


[06.24.15] Great news! I am now back at work and taking new students again! I will be teaching at Long & Mcquade Music Education Centre Monday's and Friday afternoons during the summer months and Thursday afternoons at my home studio in Langford. Please have a look on my current openings on my lesson's page to see what might work for you!

[01.20.15] Yes, it's been a long time since I've updated my site! I had a huge 2014. I'd like to welcome my first baby, Olivia, to my family! She was born 3 months early on September 7th 2014 at only 1 pound but is now home and thriving! I took a few months off teaching but am now starting to take students again at my home studio in the Westshore until the summer. I won't be back at Long & MacQaude until the summer and Larsen music I will no longer be teaching there. Only have so much time now with my new bundle of joy keeping me busy! I will be teaching in the evenings starting at 6:45 during the week and during the weekends I can be somewhat flexible for lessons. Drop me a line and we can work something out! Looking forward to a fantastic 2015!

[09.14.13] I have now added a student link to my site! If you're a student of mine be sure to check this out! All your lesson logs will be there and all sorts of other information! You can find this website here: students. Also, I am almost booked up on most of my teaching days so if you're thinking about taking lessons with me now's the time to book!

[08.30.13] The Fall season has come upon us and I am no filling up my teaching schedule for September 2013! All lesson info and schedules are up to date! All lessons are on a first come first serve basis so book your lesson today to avoid disappointment!
