I began taking piano lessons with John in January. I had a very limited background with piano and music in general. John makes learning to play the piano and read music very attainable and fun. I look forward to my weekly lessons, and have already learned a great deal under his instruction. I have a few songs under my belt that I am not the least ashamed to play for friends and family!! If you're looking for a knowledge and interesting music teacher in East Nashville, John is a great option!

Both of my children take piano lessons with Jonathan Gaertner at Mobile Music Academy and we couldn't be happier. He makes music fun and motivates them with obtainable goals. They look forward to their lessons every week.

I absolutely love Murfreesboro Academy of Music! My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Mr. Layne for 6 years and he is the BEST teacher I could have possibly hoped for! My daughter is 11 and plays well on a high school level. She also started taking violin lessons from Ms. Scholten about 5 months ago and once again the level of teaching has far reached my expectations! A very professional atmosphere with the highest quality of teaches! I would highly recommend The Murfreesboro Academy of Music to anyone seeking music excellence in any area of music interest! I am one very satisfied an loyal customer with these teachers going above and beyond to make sure their students not only enjoy but have the BEST learning experience possible!

Great teacher, helps the student learn at their own pace.. .She has numerous years of experience and is quite patient. Also has a student cello for rent if you are trying to dabble before making a commitment.

    My curriculum and teaching style follow the lessons of passed-down wisdom from my teachers, as well as personal experience. I focus on the essentials of healthy musicianship, in addition to the technique of playing an instrument. I take the time to impress listening skills on all my students, including some singing (it doesn't need to be "good"- my singing isn't), in order to develop essential ensemble (band) skills. My classical bassists and cellists will focus on proper bow technique from the first day. Besides the essentials, I customize my curriculum to each student, so that they can learn the musical styles, pieces, and songs they love the most. As an educator, I love passing on knowledge and skills to others. As a musician and artist, there is no greater joy than teaching the musical/artistic skills that are necessary to express oneself and communicate unique ideas and emotions.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
