Eugene’s Music Studio is one of the most professional & kind music studios we had the honor to work with. My son is so excited and cannot wait for his piano lessons. The teacher was able to keep him busy and involved throughout the entire session (not an easy task) and she always comes up with new ways for him to stay involved. We are very happy that we found Eugene's Music Studio. Eugene was very attuned and helped us find the best fit for our child and we look forward to seeing the progress he will make with time.

Their platform makes finding and scheduling on-going children's violin lessons easy. Their fee is based on monthly installments but their trial lesson allows one to figure out it they are the right fit before making a commitment. The teacher they assigned works very well with our 8 yr old. He provides a nice balance of structured enhancement, encouragement and expertise. Some of the pieces she is working are quite hard and he is able to break down the music in manageable steps so is able to learn and not get frustrated.

Sharon makes piano lessons fun and always seems to know the right balance between strictness and light hearted fun. My favorite song was Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata, where Sharon made fun of and helped correct my slouchy posture and also helped with putting more emotion into the piece. I am pretty lazy with practice, but Sharon is very flexible and can always find something to improve even when I don't get a chance to practice.

    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!!

    I was looking for a cello, violin and piano teacher for my 2 daughters and was lucky to find Furuya Sisters using Thumbtack. They are musical, friendly and my daughters enjoy classes with them. Thoroughly recommend anybody looking for music teachers to contact them!

    I absolutely love my cello lessons with Sarah. I started taking lessons from Sarah after many years without them. She has helped me overcome bad habits, play pieces I couldn’t get through anymore, and I’m so grateful that I can enjoy my cello again. I plan on continuing lessons with Sarah and am so glad I found her.

      Jo was always encouraging, no matter how badly I messed up. She brought the perspectives of her various teachers, which included luminaries like Aldo Parisot. There was never a single "right way" to do something. She was more of a collaborator who helped me to find ways I could use to develop my technique and find my voice. Jo inspired me to work hard, because I found so much to gain from each lesson. She made music fun. I once lamented that I was making the Masters roll over in their graves. She said no, "the Masters were smiling, because someone was having fun playing their music!" Regardless of skill level, I feel anyone could benefit from working with her.

        Julia is an absolutely wonderful teacher. I’m an adult student, and I looked long and hard for a teacher who would be right for me. After nearly a year of false-starts I found Julia. She is a gifted musician who’s passionate about the cello and patient with a beginner like me. When I play a scale or a song, she can identify exactly what I need do to enhance my tone. Her pedagogical approach combines a keen, intuitive sense and a wide breadth of knowledge. In short, Julia is stellar and it’s a joy to be her student.

          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.
