We are a studio based in Middletown, PA, teaching students both in-person and online who are both local and from all over the US! We offer piano and cello lessons for all ages and levels. Learn more about our teachers below. Laney Willard: director and piano teacher I am a piano instructor with experience teaching students from four to over fifty of all levels. I teach skills such as note reading, improv, and composition in styles from classical to jazz to pop. I speak both English and Spanish fluently and have extensive experience giving lessons in both languages. My decade and a half of piano instruction includes working as a choir accompanist and studying at the university level under Dr. Yu-Wen Chen of James Madison University. During my teen years I focused on pieces by classical composers, especially those by Chopin and Debussy, as well as Broadway masterpieces. In recent years I have enjoyed delving into jazz and modern pieces as well. I am a member of the National Music Teacher's Association and involved at the state and regional levels as well. I love helping students of any age develop an intimate relationship with music through the piano, to feel that they can learn to play and write the kind of things they like as well as feel comfortable playing a multitude of styles and genres. I love teaching here in Pennsylvania and continuing to share musical knowledge! Alan Huang: piano and cello teacher I've been playing piano since first grade, as well as cello since fourth grade. As a local native, I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experience with students in the central Pennsylvania area. As a pianist, I studied with a few different teachers, mostly working my way through the Royal Conservatory of Music program. I've performed with the Wednesday club in Harrisburg, and have performed with the All-State orchestra in high school on piano. Most of my piano training has revolved around classical music, although my spare time was always dedicated to figuring out pop songs by ear. As a cellist, I've been in multiple orchestras, including county and district orchestra in high school, Harrisburg Youth Symphony Orchestra, and performing with the orchestra at the University of Pittsburgh. I've also been a part of many musical productions from high school through college, as well as more professional productions in Harrisburg. Additionally, I've been a part of multiple string quartets in the Harrisburg area. I have lots of experience with performance, music theory, and music history, and I aim to create well-rounded musicians ready to take on any musical challenges in their way!See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

Reviews for Denver cello instructors
Acuarius B.
At first I was hesitant to have cello lessons online since I thought it would be more beneficial to have a teacher face to face. However, I am so glad I gave it a try. Keith is an incredible teacher and I’m so thankful I am able to learn from him. Every lesson I learn so many new things and it makes me fall in love with my cello more and more. I’ve had a number of cello teachers but Keith by far exceeds my expectations. He’s so knowledgeable and encouraging and makes the lessons full of learning and fun. After just a couple lessons my friends already could tell a difference in my cello playing. I highly recommend him to everyone and I 100% believe you will not regret hiring him.
