John Hanifin holds both a Bachelor’s & Masters Degrees in Cello Performance from The Boston Conservatory of Music & The Longy School of Music of Bard College. Recently described as “Re-defining Classic” by Strings Magazine, John’s new techniques on the cello are setting him apart from others. Finding great joy in teaching all levels & ages, John is looking to expand his current student base at his private studio in Belmont, MA. Past students include acceptance and scholarships to New England Conservatory Preparatory Symphony Orchestras, All-State participants, Assistant and Principal Cello positions in semi & professional orchestras along with concerto competition winners and national touring artists. “Having studied cello for over sixteen years I have developed a teaching method that works for everyone because it is always based on the student. Whatever it is he or she needs or desires from a lesson takes precedence over my own personal agenda. Goals are meant to be set & achieved but never meant to hold you back or put you down. -John Hanifin Endorsements include NS Design Electric Cello’s, D’Addario Strings, Coda Bows & Takamine Guitars.
