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.

How can I find a good voice teacher?

Use Thumbtack to find a good, top-rated voice teacher near you. With Thumbtack, you can view the teachers’ profiles, read their client testimonials and check their ratings. To ensure you hire the best instructor, ask them questions about their credentials and success with other students. You should also get cost estimates from at least three instructors before you make your decision.

What is a good age to start vocal lessons?

Whether you’re a novice or experienced singer, it’s never too late to start taking vocal lessons.

If you’re thinking about signing up your child for voice lessons, keep in mind that some instructors recommend waiting until their voice settles after puberty. Talk to voice coaches near you to find out if now's the time for you (or your child) to start taking lessons.

What are singing lessons like?

Every voice coach may have a different style of teaching, but here are a few things you'll likely experience during a singing lesson: 

  • Explaining to the instructor what you want to improve on.
  • Going through a few breathing and riff exercises.
  • Receiving constructive feedback and criticism from the instructor.

Before your first voice lesson, you can ask your instructor what you should expect and how to prepare.

My experience was one of joy, sheer joy! He is an answer to an unspoken prayer for a teacher who is filled with joy and music. I am happy with my choice

Prior to meeting John, I had never sat behind a drum set in my entire life. He got me going within 10 minutes of my arrival! He is a great teacher and is willing to tailor things based upon the student's prior musical experience and objectives. I am very pleased to have him as my teacher.

Alex is an extremely patient teacher who is willing to work with you at any level. From ear training and theory to songs you actually want to learn, his "nontraditional" approach to teaching music is extremely effective and promotes excitement about what you are learning. At a highly reasonable price, every moment is utilized and he works to bring out your full potential, no matter what level of music you are at.

I appreciate Toby’s focus on guitar technique especially as a fellow music teacher. With his guidance, I improved so much in dexterity over 2 weeks which will lay a great foundation for the future. He brings a great deal of experience to the table which shows in each lesson.

I would very highly recommend Nick as a guitar teacher. I've been taking lessons for five weeks and he has already helped me a lot with my technique. He has a great combination of the knowledge of a professional musician and also the patience and guidance of a very experienced teacher. I also like that he is helping me with ear training. I've had previous experience with reading music, but he is really expanding my horizons with listening to music and trying to figure it out by using basic principles. This is a way to learn that I hadn't experienced before in guitar lessons in the past, and I think it's a great way to learn. I'm looking forward to many more lessons to come. This has really helped me to enjoy playing the guitar again.

Jim is a great teacher. He's very skilled and accomplished (I was surprised my daughter could be taught by a former university professor!), yet very patient with beginning students. He's also very willing to move the schedule around as things come up. My daughter has a great foundation in piano and now in reading music as well, thanks to Jim!

Josh is a great guitar player and an excellent teacher. I would recommend Josh to anyone considering lessons. He has really strong understanding of fundamentals and advanced theory. He also explains it well so students can progress at a steady pace. He plays a very wide variety of genres, so he can so you examples relevant to whatever music you want to play.

Before I started drum lessons, I knew absolutely nothing about drums. Spencer is an awesome teacher who values his passion. Each lesson is something a little different and a bit challenging, but that gives me a push to practice harder. Spencer is flexible and accommodating to the wants and needs of lessons, but also wants to see you be successful and encourages one to take the next levels of success. I never knew how to read music, and now I can!

I have been taking lessons with Shulamit for about 4 months now, and her teaching has helped me immensely to improve. She is incredibly knowledgeable about all things music and is able to offer truly helpful insight that is rare among piano teachers. She is willing to help push me when I wish to strive for harder pieces, but also understands and helps me when I need more practice. I would highly recommend Shulamit to anyone wishing to take piano lessons.

Michael May is an excellent guitar teacher. I started with Mike recently and not only has my playing already dramatically improved, but my overall knowledge of how music works has greatly increased as well. Michael has a great ability to make very difficult concepts understandable, and he is well-prepared for each lesson. He is also a superb guitar player in his own right. I have taken guitar lessons at Twin Town, Blackbird's, several private instructors I found on CraigsList and am also currently taking a Minneapolis Community Education guitar class. I can honestly say that Michael is vastly superior to all the instructors I have previously taken. Sign up with Michael today!!
