Taking violin lessons (and now viola) with Paige. It's been a much better experience for me than my first time trying to learn violin. I appreciate that she's willing to adapt her lessons to my own goals and also select music that is actually pleasing to listen to even for an absolute beginner. As some other reviews mentioned, she's also very quick to reply to any messages.

It is a privilege and an honor to be a Tara Simon Studios student. Tara's obvious performance talent is matched by her gift as a teacher. I started with Tara 3 years ago as an absolute beginner piano student, with nary a note of music capability explored, much less an iota of music theory knowledge. Tara was as eager and willing to take my humble starting place, delighting in my baby steps of progress, which were likely even slower for an adult student! Tara's insistence on accuracy/ tempo/attitude/professionalism prevailed, regardless of my level of piano skill. The studio policies and processes are as impeccable as the music training; Tara and her staff are on time and devoted to their students. The performance showcases are an outstanding aspect of TSS teaching, where the student learns from the stage as well as at lesson time. I am happy to say that there are numerous songs from several favorite composers that I can play, thanks to Tara and TSS. For anyone considering lessons from TSS, hurry! It is a gift for you.

Mostai helped me with initiating the contact between me and my children's music instructor. Since I live on the border of metro Atlanta, I had a feeling that it was going to be a challenge to find a great pianist to teach my children how to play the piano. Mostai went above and beyond and found a great pianist--Lacie! Lacie is doing a wonderful job with teaching my children. My children are enthusiastic about learning to play the piano, and they are progressing to great accomplishments.

My son has been receiving piano lessons for @ 1 month. His teacher, Ben Phillips, is great. The lessons are fun and easy going, and he really looks forward to the evenings that he has lessons. I don't even have to bug him to practice. It has been great!

I have real life performance experience and have taught cello since I was a student myself starting at age 12 teaching others cello. I teach ages 5 and up. I will take adult beginners.

I am a 19 year veteraned Concert Pianist as well as a guitarist and cellist. I am able to play all styles of music and can make your wedding go from great to amazing with live, professional music. I teach piano as well because I love the instrument and I feel anyone else who does should learn to play as well. I can teach out of any repetoire.


I am an orchestra music educator in the Atlanta Public School System. I have taught lessons for many years on violin and cello. I look forward to providing children and adults the ability to learn and perfect their ability in playing an instrument. I work with individuals from beginning levels to advanced levels. Students will be able to read music as well as apply techniques to instrumental playing. Students will learn and enjoy different genres of music (i.e. classical, folk, blues, jazz, Christian, etc.)


I was exposed to music from a young age and was always fascinated by strings instruments and the beauty of their sound. I have worked extremely hard for the past seven years of my playing of the cello, so I have developed an emotional connection with the instrument and the sound that it produces. Even with my long experience, I am still seeking to learn because I am still a student myself. Music is empty without knowledge, so I believe that it is my duty to spread knowledge and obtain it myself through collaboration with other musicians and private tutoring. I have invested large amounts of time and energy into music, so it is always on my mind. I love teaching music because I always develop a unique bond with my students because we both struggle to improve his or her skills. Music in general is very rewarding, making all the hard work valuable and special.

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.
