I started going to Dolce for violin lessons as a beginner. They have been incredibly helpful and friendly through the entire process. The cost is very competitive and the instructor quality is outstanding making it the best value by far. It was immediately clear to me that the environment is passionate about teaching music and not just a business to make money.

Chihui is a very good teacher. I learned both piano and cello from her for a long time. She is good at encouraging her students, and make me feel like I am always making progress. Highly recommended.

As an adult starting piano lessons again after (eep!) 3 decades, I have to say that studying at McLaughlin School of Music has been a very gratifying experience. My teacher David Mesquitic has just the right touch. He is able to both encourage and challenge someone like me who has "just enough" knowledge to be dangerous but not enough to have mastered certain essential concepts for pop/jazz piano. Huge props to Matt McLaughlin as well. He has created a very warm and welcoming space in which to take lessons and definitely paired me with right teacher. I am thrilled to have found the McLaughlin School.

James has been a great teacher for my daughter. He plays the cello beautifully himself and is very patient with my daughter. He relates to the student and finds what interests them to apply it to his teaching. My daughter tried out for the local youth orchestra and Jamey came down for her tryout. He was reassuring and is preparing her to transition into playing in an orchestra setting. We are thrilled to have Jamey as a partner in our daughter's musical education. So happy that we are also having him do piano lessons with our son.

He's a great teacher. He is reteaching me to use proper technique and I can really tell the difference in how my music sounds. I practice more because it sounds better.

      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.
