Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.
Reviews for Colorado Springs music teachers

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

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.
