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.

I began learning to play the cello with a different cello teacher and didn't progress at all . Since I started having lessons with Alexandra, I see a steady improvement in my playing. She is consistent, organized, patient,

Jenny is a great cello teacher! I really enjoy having lessons with her. Would definitely recommend. Also, I have my master's in music education, (just wanted to brush up on cello), so I can definitely tell when I've met a fellow great music teacher. Great work Jenny!

For my husband’s birthday I wanted to surprise him with a cello lesson. He had never before even picked up the instrument, yet by the time we walked out of our lesson with Oded, he was able to play an entire song! Oded offered us water, a phone charger, continued the lesson even after our time was up, and even treated us to a little concert at the end. He made the lesson a lot of fun, yet very educational at the same time, and my husband absolutely loved it! We will definitely be recommending Oded to our friends and family.
