Barb's Continuo Home Music Lessons provided home lessons to my son. Not only was the instructor very talented, but they knew exactly how to interact with a young person to keep his interest throughout the lesson and encouraged practicing beyond the lesson. Barb is always prompt and goes out of her way to accomodate scheduling issues.

My daughter has been taking violin lessons with David since she was 9 years old; and more recently, she has started classical, acoustic guitar lessons the summer before entering college. He is a dedicated professional and diligent in making sure his students learn correct technique and become more musical in their own personal way. More importantly, David has the ability to keep his lessons fun and varied! Her lessons have always been highlights of my daughter's week! I recommend David without hesitation.

    Ken is an excellent cello teacher!! He is patient and tolerant. He takes the time to explain the details & the history of the instrument, the music, finger positions, bow and everything to do with learning a new instrument. Would recommend him to anyone, especially if you are learning late in life!!

    Ron has been teaching my son Matt classical bass since he was in the 4th grade. He is now a freshman in college. Thanks to Ron and his innate talent and great personality Matt is a very gifted musician. During his school years here while with Ron he qualified for All County Orchestra a number of times. I can't say enough good things about Ron. He is a genius on many levels. I clearly think he is the BEST!!

      Aminda Asher is a classically trained cellist who teaches and performs in New York City. She is a certified Suzuki teacher who loves inspiring kids and families to love playing the cello. Aminda has many young students as well as adult students that range from beginning to advanced. She has been teaching in the New York area for the last 10 years and loves it more every year. She teaches under the Suzuki philosophy that "every child can" play music and makes it her mission to engage each student and get them excited about cello in their own individual way. Aminda not only teaches privately at her studio in Inwood, but is also currently on faculty at the 92nd Street Y School of Music, Turtle Bay Music School, and the Lucy Moses School.


      I am young and energetic, and truly interested in the progress of students. I learn a lot from teaching, and I really enjoy watching students grow.


      I have all pedagogical levels of cello training and I use technology in my teaching to help gain the interest of my students, along with precise practice and performance methods. I am also trained in the Alexander technique and use that approach in my playing and teaching.


      I am a first-year college student from The Juilliard School. Unlike other students, since I have been led to some wrong places and I tried so hard to correct them with time, I know every single thing that makes performance better and easier. My job is to teach students on how to use their limited time to improve their techniques or music with my 14 years of experience in practicing and performance. Since this is my first time of official teaching, and I came from China, I love to give everyone first lesson for free.

      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.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
