"Brit and Helen provided the music for our wedding ceremony on Sunday, September 18, 2016 as a violin and cello duo and they did a fantastic job! They were actually our second choice but they offered an amazing deal for two people for one hour so we decided to go with them (and we were not disappointed). It took us a little bit to select our music, but thankfully Brit was able to provide us with a wonderful selection of classical and contemporary music to pick from. We also had 3 additional musical selections (Star Wars, Star Trek, and The Legend of Zelda) that we wanted to incorporate into our ceremony. Brit and Helen were able to accurately and expertly integrate these pieces at no additional charge to us. We were both ecstatic when he heard them during the ceremony. It was the cherry on top. Even with a last minute musician substitution, everything turned out perfect. Our communication was mostly through e-mail but the initial phone conversation we had really helped to get us all on the same page. Brit was very responsive as we went back and forth with the music as well as some contract revisions we had requested. We would absolutely recommend Brit and Helen to anyone looking for top notch musicians for their wedding ceremony. Our only regret is that we didn’t get a chance to say goodbye because we were rushed away for pictures. We also forgot to mention that they totally could have stayed for the cocktail hour to indulge in drinks and hors d’ouevres. Sorry!"

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.
