Chris, my instructor for violin lessons, is great! It is clear he typically works with children, but is personable and, as an adult, has escalated the learning process to save time. I fully intend to continue getting lessons through Chris, and the owner (Brian I believe), was very responsive to emails.

I highly recommend Tim Smith as a teacher in many areas of music. I am so elated to be taking cello lessons with this fine teacher! Tim is multi-talented and able to challenge me through every level of musical growth. I appreciate his individual teaching style which allows each student to progress at their own personal rate. He is flexible and accommodating with lesson times and his rates are right in line with the local teaching market.

I took cello lessons with Elisa for a few years and played in a group of student, stringed musicians led by her for a few more. She is very good at what she does. She is also very kind. Her lessons are affordable (especially important for a broke college student like me), and her schedule flexible for the most part.

    Alexis is an amazing mentor. Our 7yr old daughter blossomed around Alexis. Alexis taught our daughter about the core of the violin and reading music. They would spend time doing equations with the music notes. Alexis is very balanced with her teaching. She is firm yet offers a gentle encouraging touch. We miss her sooooo very much! She truly is a gem :)

      Bryce has been teaching my son violin for the past year and a half and we've really loved working with him. He does an amazing job of fostering music appreciation in children, and his passion for music really shines through in his teaching and his own performance. He has a gentle, enthusiastic, and effective approach to teaching. My son enjoys coming to see him every week, and frankly, I think he's pretty great too! We hope to continue lessons with Bryce for a long time to come!

      I love the way he presented info to my daughter. Made things relatable. He did exactly what i hoped he would. Corrected her form right away and gave her ideas to build on until the next lesson. She's excited to play her instrument again!

      Collin taught my son cello from the very start. He was encouraging, patient, and taught with a sense of humor. My son learned how to hone skills and how to truly work at something. He has since switched to a different instrument, but the foundation that Collin provided for him has given him the basis for success. From how to practice to how to read music to how to get through frustration, Collin was absolutely terrific. From a practical standpoint, Collin had a flexible schedule and was completely reliable when it came to lessons, which is not always the case with busy musicians. My son loved his cello lessons, and I loved seeing the growing love for music that blossomed in him.

      Are you interested in learning Sonatas? Concertos? Suzuki? I am a Master's Level graduate of the Richard Strauss Conservatory in Munich, Germany, having played in the Boise Philharmonic in Idaho before coming to Oregon. I am now a part-time teacher and play in two Salem Orchestras as well, being principal of the Salem Pops cello section. Private students of mine in the past ten years have gone on to perform with traveling orchestras and/or win scholarship money for college. I often accompany my own students since I was a semi-professional accompanist in college. The first lesson is free and I will explain my rates in a more detailed manner. Please call for location, directions, and schedule availability.


      We are a full-service music store with sales, rentals, repairs, lessons, classes, books and accessories for strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion and many other ethnic instruments. We are the best-stocked music store in Washington County and offer great customer service!


      Offering cello lessons for beginning and advanced students, I specialize in helping students find the balance of passion and discipline to build a great relationship with the instrument. I received a Bachelor of Music from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in music education and cello performance, where I studied with Andrew Smith. My graduate studies were completed at the University of Missouri-Columbia (Mizzou) in cello performance, while leading the Missouri String Project through Mizzou's teaching assistantship program. I studied with Andrew Luchansky at California State University-Sacramento and taught the CSUS String Project under Suzuki pedagogue Judy Weigart-Bossaut. I am certified in the Suzuki Method and an active member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas. My music studio is in Noe Valley on the Western edge of the Mission. If you are interested in learning more about lessons or in collaborating to bring amazing string music to more people in San Francisco, contact me!


      We have several different teachers who teach piano, guitar, drum, cello, and voice lessons. All are done in home and at a studio.

      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.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
