My son has been taking violin lessons for a year and a half and piano lessons for a year now. His progress has been amazing. Mrs. Campbell works with him on his level to expand his talents. She's easy to work with if we need a schedule change. I'm glad that we were able to make a connection through our local newspaper. It's definitely been and continues to be a rewarding experience!

Our daughter has progressed in violin quickly with Maria's patient training. Maria has a wonderful manner with children and encourages them to play for others even outside of recitals, which helps build their self-confidence. We are happy that Maria has been our daughter's violin teacher because she is a great role model for musicianship and service to the community.

I am a Durham based cellist and teacher. I earned bachelor's degrees in cello performance and English at the Peabody Institute and Johns Hopkins University, and a master's degree in cello performance and pedagogy, and I have taught students of all ages. I love teaching music, because the skills that the students learn go so far beyond simply playing their instrument and can enhance critical thinking, creativity, discipline and even just general brain development.


My private lessons are all about learning at a steady pace, building confidence, and loving music. Whether you or your child wants to learn guitar, piano, or another string instrument, I am the teacher for you! As a college student, I am learning so much about teaching music every day. I want to apply that knowledge through teaching! My experience includes private violin and piano lessons, as well as working in a violin lesson program through my college. My prices are reasonable, and my private lesson atmosphere is happy and motivating!

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.
