Im provided with private violin lessons and I feel really grateful to have Kimmy as a teacher. She really relates to you on a level seldom teachers do. She's very supportive and laid back yet pushes you to improve too. No complaints! :)

    Dr. Krentz is an excellent teacher of both technique and expression, enabling the students to truly excel and thus thoroughly enjoy playing the cello. His dedication to his students is seen in every lesson and he works tirelessly to ensure their progress and success. His methods are backed up with extensive, sound research and he explains the reasoning beneath each physical motion of playing the cello and creating a beautiful tone. He's an inspiration for myself, another cello teacher who's been very lucky to work with him!

    Ananta is an exceptional violin teacher. She's patient, professional and fun. She starts from the ground up, leaving her students with a lifetime of great habits. She has given my daughter a love for music that will last a lifetime and you can't put a price on that! Ananta is amazing in her own right, making students want to practice so they can be as amazing as her someday. I highly recommend her for any student at any age. You don't come across a music teacher like her everyday.

    We are Premium Lessons. We offer piano and violin lessons.


    I’m a teacher at Shoreline School Distrct and have been teaching music (Cello and Piano) for many years. Currently I teach at Shoreline Music School, too.


    The Suzuki method is specifically designed for teaching children music in the same way that they learn natural language and life skills. My philosophies and methods work fantastically for children as young as three and can be easily modified for teens and adults.


    We are a family known locally for our transcriptions. We teach piano, violin, viola, cello and bass, as well as very beginner flute and drum lessons. We also teach basic music theory and help others try to learn how to transcribe their very own favorite songs to any instrumentation. We also perform our own transcriptions for various events, such as weddings, services and parties, and we take any custom requests they may have, from Elvis Presley to the Beatles and Miley Cyrus.


    I'm looking for students of any age and level to teach. I'm an aspiring cellist studying at the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University under Amit Peled.


    Depth of experience, understanding and the ability teach a natural technique in clear, precise and complete terms. Students also learn how to consciously direct their learning process so they are working efficiently avoiding wasted repetitions during practice time.


    I provide cello lessons for children and young adults. I have over 7 years of experience playing cello and will teach basic beginning skills. You supply your own cello.


    We're locally-owned and operated, serving our customers in the greater South Kitsap region


    I am an experienced cello teacher with a great passion in music, and I am offering private lessons. I help students prepare orchestra pieces and offer two recitals per year. All young cellists are encouraged to join their school orchestra, Solo and Ensemble Festival, and local youth symphonies.


    I offer private lessons in beginning cello and beginning guitar for all ages in Seattle, primarily in the Wallingford, Green Lake, Ballard, and University District neighborhoods.

    I've performed all over the world in venues such as Carnegie Hall. Worked with world class musicians and artists in the classical, rock, and improv world. I also create music for film, dance, and compose concert music. I've lived in Europe and in New York City for over a decade, recently moved to Seattle where I grew up, and teach cello, composition and chamber music at Cornish College of the Arts. I'm passionate about music and sharing my love of music in my teaching. Lessons can be done in person or over internet, if student is not in Seattle.


    I am a highly trained cellist who studied at Oberlin College and Indiana University and offer lessons to all ages including adult beginners. I use the Suzuki books in conjunction with my advanced study to bring out the most expressive performance through the best possible technique. I travel to your centrally located Seattle home for weekly lessons and offer performance opportunities annually.

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
