About the Studio

Based in Camarillo, CA, The Celine Gietzen Music Studio provides outstanding cello instruction and serves all of Ventura County and the West Valley, with students from communities such as Ojai, Ventura, Oxnard, Somis, Camarillo, Moorpark, Simi Valley, Newbury Park, Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village, Agoura Hills, Oak Park, Calabasas, and Malibu. Private cello lessons are taught weekly and are offered in lengths of 30 minutes, 45 minutes, and 60 minutes. Openings are available for cello students of all ages and skill levels. Two studio recitals are held annually, and students are encouraged to participate in the Music Teachers’ Association of California (MTAC) festivals and the Certificate of Merit program. However, students are not required to perform. Currently, the Studio is comprised of over 30 cello students who range in age from five to adult. About 20% of students are adults, most of whom are over the age of 55. Students enjoy performing together annually in small groups as well as in a large ensemble at the MTAC Ensemble Festival. Most students also play in outside orchestras and chamber music groups.
