How much are cello lessons?

Cello lessons are a great way to anchor and guide your cello practice, regardless of your skill level. From top symphony performers to first-time music students in elementary school, cello lessons correct your flaws and help your strengths shine. The cost of cello lessons will vary, depending on the reputation and experience of your teacher, the length and frequency of your lessons, and where you live. Students who have regularly scheduled lessons and pay in advance often pay less per lesson than drop-in students who schedule lessons as needed. Here are some examples of average cello lesson costs:

  • 30-minute cello lesson: $30, when a minimum of 4 lessons per month are pre-paid.
    • Cost for drop-in lesson: $35.
  • 45-minute cello lesson: $35, when a minimum of 4 lessons per month are pre-paid.
    • Cost for drop-in lesson: $40-$45.
  • 60-minute cello lesson: $40, when a minimum of 4 lessons per month are pre-paid.
    • Cost for drop-in lesson: $50-$55.

How hard is it to learn to play the cello?

Taking cello lessons can be a rewarding experience for students young and old. The rich sound of the cello is well-loved in classical music and is found in all genres of contemporary music from modern folk to rock. As with any instrument, how hard it is to learn to play cello depends on the practice and dedication you put into it. It’s true that some people are naturally more adept at learning instruments than others, but with lessons and a daily commitment, you too can learn to play the cello.

Cello lessons can be a smart investment, especially for new players. Even professional cellists benefit greatly from ongoing training, but for those new to cello it’s especially important for forming a strong foundation for playing. From the proper posture to understanding finger positions, regular cello lessons give you a benchmark to measure your daily practice against. With a professional cello teacher guiding you, the sky’s the limit.

How can I find a good voice teacher?

Use Thumbtack to find a good, top-rated voice teacher near you. With Thumbtack, you can view the teachers’ profiles, read their client testimonials and check their ratings. To ensure you hire the best instructor, ask them questions about their credentials and success with other students. You should also get cost estimates from at least three instructors before you make your decision.

What is a good age to start vocal lessons?

Whether you’re a novice or experienced singer, it’s never too late to start taking vocal lessons.

If you’re thinking about signing up your child for voice lessons, keep in mind that some instructors recommend waiting until their voice settles after puberty. Talk to voice coaches near you to find out if now's the time for you (or your child) to start taking lessons.

What are singing lessons like?

Every voice coach may have a different style of teaching, but here are a few things you'll likely experience during a singing lesson: 

  • Explaining to the instructor what you want to improve on.
  • Going through a few breathing and riff exercises.
  • Receiving constructive feedback and criticism from the instructor.

Before your first voice lesson, you can ask your instructor what you should expect and how to prepare.

Reviews for Colorado Springs music teachers
Thumbtack Customer
Rick Taylor is an excellent guitar teacher whose career as a musician, instructor and music book author provide the student with the broad range of knowledge and experience to assure the novice or expert student progress and success. Rick is methodical in his approach, combining practice with music theory, discipline and fun. As an older generation student I knew I was in good hands on my first day when talking to a waiting high school student who volunteered to me that Rich was a “great teacher” combining “book” study, theory and song practice. I look forward to my class every week and feel surprised at my progress. His effect of his five-star teaching is on the smiling face of the next high school student walking into his studio, a teacher for all generations. John C

Eka is a phenomenal teacher! She is kind, professional, keeps lessons light and fun, but also knows how to motivate and challenge you every step of the way. Her passion for music and teaching shines through every lesson, which gets you excited to play the piano and to learn more every visit.

Gary is an enthusiastic instructor who tailors my lesson to whatever I need to work on at the time. He is very encouraging, which is important when you're just learning how to play. He has played all kinds of music professionally over the years. Gary has the experience required to be a well-versed teacher, and to help make you a well-rounded drummer.

Marc is my first music teacher and has convinced me that it is never too late to learn something new! I wanted to learn to play ukulele as an adult, but I didn’t know where to start and had never played an instrument. After a couple lessons I can actually enjoy playing my favorite songs. He makes the lessons fun and has a lot of patience too.

We love Ms. Eka! My three daughters (9, 6, and 5) take lessons from her and she is amazing with each one. Of course they each have very different learning styles and Eka is able to adapt and teach in a way that is instructive yet fun. Not only is Eka very knowledgeable in music she is patient, flexible, and so kind. All of which are crucial to be a great teacher. I highly recommend Eka!! If you have any reservation, contact her for a consultation and I’m confident you won’t regret it. I’m so glad I did because it is such a joy to see and hear my girls learn how to play the piano.
