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.

I started cello lessons with Peter in 1990 at age 44, and it was the most brilliant thing I have ever done. Peter is a very gifted teacher who brings a special sensitivity to his students. He is very perceptive so that he is able to home in on technical and musical issues, tweak them, and in the process one feels the joy of discovery. Thanks to starting to learn the cello with Peter, I quit an unpleasant job and opened my own business, and I never looked back. I continue to study with Peter. He is an inspiration.

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.

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!!

    Verified review

    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.

      About

      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.
