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.

How can I find a good voice teacher?

Use Thumbtack to find a good, top-rated voice teacher near you. With Thumbtack, you can view the teachers’ profiles, read their client testimonials and check their ratings. To ensure you hire the best instructor, ask them questions about their credentials and success with other students. You should also get cost estimates from at least three instructors before you make your decision.

What is a good age to start vocal lessons?

Whether you’re a novice or experienced singer, it’s never too late to start taking vocal lessons.

If you’re thinking about signing up your child for voice lessons, keep in mind that some instructors recommend waiting until their voice settles after puberty. Talk to voice coaches near you to find out if now's the time for you (or your child) to start taking lessons.

What are singing lessons like?

Every voice coach may have a different style of teaching, but here are a few things you'll likely experience during a singing lesson: 

  • Explaining to the instructor what you want to improve on.
  • Going through a few breathing and riff exercises.
  • Receiving constructive feedback and criticism from the instructor.

Before your first voice lesson, you can ask your instructor what you should expect and how to prepare.

Reviews for Lansdale music teachers
Thumbtack Customer
Tonya is one of the best piano teachers I have personally worked with. I have worked with a handful of other piano teachers in the past, attempting to learn the instrument, and several teachers have either gotten irritated with me and said that I did not try, or did not have the patience to try and teach me the right way, and stopped teaching me. Tonya was good about being both patient and helpful at correcting me with a multitude of errors I experienced in my time as her student. She was also very good about moving at my pace throughout the lesson. She had a very good feel for what I could handle, and she was good about keeping up when we breezed through the fast sections and also slowing down and providing feedback when we experienced longer, more difficult stretches of a song or hand signature that took me longer to process and understand. She also has a really great background in the instrument, and she has pointed out many different examples of classical piano music and other styles and songs for the piano that I have never experienced before, which just goes to show how passionately she feels about the instrument! On top of all that, she was very good about scheduling and being flexible with communication. Because I was commuting from so far away from her town to get lessons, I often had to jump through loops with getting rides from my mom and dad. Also, with my work and schoolwork on top of it all, I had to change the dates and times for lessons with Tonya many, many times. She was very flexible with lessons and was very good about communicating lesson plans and working out scheduling, whether I used email or phone to contact her. My only personal disappointment with Tonya is that I had to so abruptly end my lessons with her. She was easily the best piano teacher I have ever had, and she has rekindled my love for the piano, and I continue to practice the work she has taught me daily in hope that I can pick up lessons again someday. I would highly recommend Tonya to anyone who wants to learn the piano, as she is a very talented musician and teacher. Great and easy to work with, and I loved the service she provided me at the reasonable price she offered! ~Tyler K.
