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.

He has a lot of knowledge when it comes to piano and explains the intricacies of the piece of music you're playing and what finger you should use to prepare for the next measure. I couldn't recommend another teacher for piano.

Phenomenal! Peggy is a great teacher who really focuses on giving her adult students a broader music education. She understands adults learn differently than children and doesn't shy away from the challenge. She's patient, supportive and excited about helping you reach your goals!

Joshua is a great teacher. My 9 year old daughter and I are students of his. He is extremely patient and never seems annoyed by hearing the same beat over and over again, even if the same mistakes keep happening. Instead he explains the correction needed and encourages me to try again. I greatly appreciate this approach about him as a teacher. Because as an adult learner I feel like I can be pretty hard on myself, but he is good at not letting me get stuck in that mindset. Plus, I know some of the local drummers who know him and every one of them has exclaimed what a skilled drummer he is. He has deep knowledgd, and interest, of many genres of music that he is able to produce skillfully as well as explain it. I recommend Joshua as an instructor. He is skillful, rhythmic, and extremely knowledgable about the art of drumming. Plus, he adores Prince.
