I am pleased to have the opportunity to rate my experience with Kim Garcia! I have two children (ages 14 & 10) taking piano lessons from her. Not only is she a gifted musician, she is also a gifted teacher! She does a wonderful job of connecting with young students and inspiring them to achieve more than they thought they could. If you are looking for a private tutor for piano, cello, or violin, I recommend you seriously consider Kim Garcia.


Private violin, viola, cello and fiddle lessons are available at Family Music Center (50th and Oklahoma, Milwaukee) and Brass Bell Music Store (Bayshore Mall, Glendale). I have over 17 years of teaching experience. Ages 5 to adult are welcome. I teach beginner, intermediate and advanced.

I have been teaching the cello for over 20 years now~ I will come to your house, you can come to mine, or we can have lessons at one of the studios I teach in.


I provide lessons for voice, piano and stringed instruments. If you need lessons in either of those categories, please feel free to contact me! I want to teach you to find the beauty of music and to enjoy playing.

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.
