Rachel was my first cello teacher, and her instruction was consistently inspired. She reassured and encouraged me as an older beginner, and I will always cherish that first early learning.

Even in my very first visit with Laura, I learned so much and felt empowered to grow in my music. She got me excited about learning more piano and helped me feel that learning more piano/theory as an adult, is possible. I look forward to working with her and I definitely would recommend her to anyone else looking to grow in their musical journey!

I can’t exclaim enough how awesome Kaitlin was to work with. She has a great ear and immediately layed down a professional quality overdub with little to no direction on my project. She made the song hers in the best way possible. She’s very charming and a great studio musician, I’ll come to her if I ever need cello for years.

Tessa was very patient with my daughter. Tessa always had a smile on her face and made cello fun for my daughter. Tessa would not only teach her the songs, but theory, counting, and always had the songs memorized. She challenged my daughter. We had a wonderful experience with Tessa!

Rex Mitchell taught my 12 year old son cello lessons. My son began practicing more and enjoyed going to his lessons. Rex kept the lessons interesting, while working on the skills my son needed to learn. I highly recommend Rex Mitchell.

    Aaron is a spectacular teacher. My two sons were so excited to learn the cello and we’ve had such a great experience since beginning lessons. Would definitely recommend him as a teacher for students of any level!

    I love the convenience of having a teacher come to my home. It saves me time and allows my other young children to be at home playing while we do a lesson. Our violin teacher is amazing. She has creative ideas to engage my sons attention and is very friendly. My son loves his violin and is excited to see his teacher each week! The group lessons are very nice and help my son connect with other students that are on his same level. I'm so happy that we are a part of the Medley Academy.

    We customize most every job to your needs! We enjoy sharing various styles of music with our students. We have training in both traditional and Suzuki methods.


    My goal is to help each student develop a love an appreciation for music, reach their full potential and achieve their personal goals. I expect my students to be committed and hardworking; in return, I will give my best to help them develop as musicians. I enjoy teaching all ages and skill levels. I am happy when my students do their best, whether they simply want to play for the joy of it or want to become a professional musician.

    I am ready to help you on your cello journey! I am accepting students in Salt Lake County right now. I have 15 years of teaching experience. I have taught students of all ages and all levels, from Suzuki Book 1 to concertos. I have taught lessons through my own studio and at BYU. To help my students, I have posted videos on YouTube so that they have examples of assigned pieces and etudes. I believe in a balance of scales, technical exercises, and beautiful pieces. I graduated from Brigham Young University in cello performance in 2009. I participated in the BYU Philharmonic Orchestra, of which I was the principal cellist. I also participated in the BYU Chamber Orchestra with whom I traveled on tours to Central Europe and the New England states. I also was selected to perform with the BYU Philharmonic Orchestra in Evening of Concertos in 2004. In 2007, I was chosen to be part of the BYU Honors String Quartet. I have received instruction from cello professors at Brigham Young University, the University of Utah, and Northwestern University. I have also participated in master classes with cellists, like Bernard Greenhouse (Beaux Arts Trio), Pegsoon Whang (Utah Symphony), and Daniel Muller-Schott (world-renowned soloist). I have won the ASTA (American String Teachers Association) Utah Solo competition (junior division-2003, senior division-2008) and I was runner-up in the MTNA (Music Teachers National Association) Utah young artist division.


    I offer night and day, one-on-one tutoring for all levels. I can travel for my clients, or they can come to my residence. I provide all the books and tools needed for every session. If a student prefers, he/she can take home materials for practice. I teach ages 3 years and above and can work with a student up to 3 days a week. Scheduling is made at the parent's, guardian's (and/or) student's discretion. I do not work in a very strict environment. I want all my students to enjoy the art of learning and to fully grasp every session and always take something informational away. If you are wanting a background check, please let me know; I would be happy to provide you with one. Thanks.


    I provide private music lessons to students of all ages. Through these one-on-one sessions, students learn bowing and fingering techniques, music sight-reading and theory skills, and proper instrument maintenance. Students in large string ensembles and orchestras should complete their musical experience through private lessons. Contact me today to learn how you or your student can benefit from my unique curriculum. Lessons are taught in 30-minute increments at $20 per lesson.

    I focus on teaching the techniques and abilities to develop musical talent but more importantly, I focus on helping my students genuinely enjoy music and develop enthusiasm for the instruments they play.

    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.
