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.

Marcin is an excellent teacher!! He has been working with my son for three years. My son learned composition and how to read and play piano music for fun (not because Mom asked him to play)! He enjoys the piano!! Thank you Marcin for guiding and encouraging him to enjoy the gift of music! He looks forward to his lessons with you!

Matt is an incredible teacher!! He tailors the lessons to my learning style and interests, making the material easier for me to retain. I have learned so much about music theory and have had significant improvement in my piano playing since I have begun lessons with Matt. I enjoy each lesson immensely and am thankful for the time Matt has put into my development. If you are looking for a piano teacher that will teach you quickly in a judgement-free and welcoming environment, you've found it!

Mick is definitely a great guitar teacher who is very skilled and very passionate about music. He is patient and enthusiastic and always encouraged me to not just strum notes but to pursue my musicality. Also, he was always very accommodating and it definitely helped a consistent schedule because I'm a full-time college student. Although I'm no longer a student of his because I'm just too busy with college now, I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to learn guitar.

Cy is simply an excellent teacher. He prioritizes teaching with music you like, emphasizing songs that will improve your whatever elements of your technique need work -- in my case it is all elements. As a result of Cy's intructuon I've gotten better in all phases of playing: rhythm, lead, and most importantly everything in between. He's also friendly and flexible, and a great musician with great taste.

Marcin is a very gifted piano teacher! I am an adult piano student (33) and have taking with Marcin for 2 years - mostly focused on classical music. Marcin is incredibly kind, professional, talented, and patient. He mixes performance, history, and theory into each lesson. Our first year we had lessons in person, and since moving out of state, have continued over Skype with much success. I couldn't recommend Marcin highly enough.
