I started as a complete adult beginner with no more than a week of the steel drums in elementary school. Don has helped me on the way to become a real cellist. He has seen it all and can help with any type of problem. He focuses on the fundamentals and quality so practice is transferable between music. A true professional and a fantastic teacher for aspiring and advanced cellists.

    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!

    I've only had one lesson so far, but she is very, very knowledgeable about Cello, and has helped me a lot even after only one lesson. I'm very much looking forward to more lessons with her!

      Haeyoon Shin Studios offers amazing cello lessons at a top notch level. The studio is intense and pushes students beyond the skill level they thought possible. The studio has a well thought out practicing method that all students use, and it completely changed the way I myself play the cello. I cannot imagine where I would be with my instrument if I had not joined the studio, nor can I believe how much I improved in such a short time. She is a high demand teacher, with an extremely busy schedule. If you know going in that lessons may be rescheduled, and that time must be flexible between the student and the teacher, then all you have to do is practice hard, and watch your playing improve exponentially.


      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 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.


      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'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.


      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.


      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.


      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.


      I offer cello lessons to people of all ages and skill levels! I have been classically trained for 15 years privately and institutionally. As of now, I am in Tacoma offering lessons just during the summer before I return to grad school in Toronto. Please use my contact via my website if you have any questions!

      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.
