We are very happy with the piano lessons Genevieve provides to our 9 year old son and our 7 year old daughter. They enjoy learning from her and they're given lots of choices for what they want to play. She's also very flexible with rearranging lesson times if we have to miss. The recitals and sectionals have been fun and helpful too, and we are looking forward to the summer camp if it works with our schedule. :)

Sarah is a fantastic music teacher! She combines theory, technique, and music appreciation in a unique, laid- back style that makes learning enjoyable. I have been taking cello lessons for six months, and in that time she has encouraged me to learn at my own pace. She provides materials that are individualized to my learning style and musical interests.

We looked into store music lessons, and they're charging about the same as Traveling Music Lessons - but with Traveling Music Lessons, the teacher drives to your house. Emily, our assigned teacher, is great with our daughter.

Mark is one of the best musicians and teachers I have had the pleasure of working with. Not only does he have vast experience with teaching and playing multiple different instruments, he knows how to effectively teach anyone at any age or level and can quickly adapt to any student's needs. He will go out of his way to give you the best lessons possible with an upbeat and positive attitude. He is always on time, professional, flexible and punctual. He cares greatly about his students and seeing them excel. Not only a great player, Mark is a very experienced and skilled teacher that I highly recommend!

    I loved having Dani as a cello teacher for my daughter. Dani is very flexible and came to my house which was amazing. She was always understanding when we had to cancel or move lessons around. She is so good with kids and makes learning a hard instrument fun! I wish she hadn't moved or we would still be using her!

    About

    I've been playing the cello since I was four and since then, it has been my biggest passion in life to the extent that I have spent over 10 years in college working towards my Doctorate of Musical Arts. I have been teaching students from ages 6-75 for the past six years, and I want to continue sharing my love of the instrument with as many people as possible. Each lesson is customized to meet the goals and aspirations of each student in a nurturing environment, with a strong emphasis on correct posture and technique so injury can be prevented. If you have always wished to learn the instrument, now is a good time to start!

    My goal with teaching is to make my students lives brighter. I teach all styles from 3 year old Suzuki students, to adult fiddle students, to very advanced college prep students. I teach the human being first and musician second. I offer students many performance opportunities: recitals, group concerts, group lessons, and help students to get accepted into competitive youth orchestras. I love making people happy! It makes my day when I can help a student truly understand something for the first time.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
