Emilie F. says, "Lisa brings so much experience, talent, and is more than qualified to instruct learners of all levels. I started playing viola at 25 with zero knowledge about instruments or music, and she has been incredibly patient with my journey so far. I was initially worried that I would have to learn everything all at once, but she teaches me new skills and how to read different notes as I need them; I’m learning at just the right pace and don’t feel overwhelmed! Lisa has made my lessons such an enjoyable experience, and, in only 3 months, I have improved and learned so much. She is flexible, and since we keep a consistent schedule for the most part, it has really become a weekly routine for me. I highly recommend her for prospective students." Read more

I am very patient with my students and love to work with kids. I start of with basic technique skills for those who are younger and at a beginner level and focus more on musical interpretation for those at a higher level.

How much do cello lessons cost near me?

Cello lessons cost $45 to $85 hourly for one-on-one lessons at home or in a music school. Pre-booking 4 to 5 lessons costs $170 to $380 per month. A cheaper option to learn the cello is group classes that cost $20 to $35 per session.

Find a greater variety of teachers through online cello lessons with a price range of $35 to $70 per hour.

Are cello lessons worth it?

Cello lessons are worth it for more effective learning at an accelerated progress. One-on-one instruction makes studying the cello more enjoyable and provides ongoing technique guidance. This personalized advice helps build discipline for regular practice and prevents detrimental playing habits that prove hard to change later.

How many cello lessons do I need?

You need weekly cello lessons for a year to play a simple song. After 2 to 4 years of learning, you can usually join a small music group with other beginners. The time it takes to get really good depends on how often you practice and your goals.

To make the fastest progress, get the most experienced teacher and supplement private lessons with group practices.

How long are cello lessons?

Cello lessons are generally 30 to 60 minutes long. The exact time depends on the student's skill level, how well they can focus, and what they hope to achieve in the long term.

What age is best to start cello lessons?

The best age to start cello lessons is from the ages of 5 to 7 years old. The cello comes in many sizes to accommodate the small frames of younger students and adult learners alike. Adults can pursue cello studies at any age.

How much are cello lessons for kids?

Cello lessons for kids cost $30 to $65 for a 30-minute lesson. Most children don't have the focus for a session longer than 30 minutes.

How do I find a cello teacher near me?

Find a cello teacher near you by searching for private cello instructors on Lessons. You can also ask for the availability of teachers at local music stores. Sometimes cello classes are available at community colleges too.

Before you decide on a cello teacher near you, always remember to:

  • Get at least 3 different prices for cello lessons to compare.
  • Read what people are saying about them on Google and Lessons.
  • Ask for a references list of students they're teaching now or have taught recently.
  • Talk to other parents about what their kids say about these teachers.
  • Get a written agreement and a lesson plan before the first class.
  • Don't pay for a month's worth of lessons until you've had your first ones and feel the teacher is right for you.

What questions should you ask a cello teacher?

Remember to ask these questions before hiring a cello teacher:

  • How long have you been a cello teacher?
  • What music school did you go to?
  • Can I get the first lesson for free or discounted as a trial class?
  • How old are the students you usually teach?
  • What kind of cello should I get if I don't have one at home?
  • How much should I practice between our lessons?
  • What books do I need to learn, and how much do they cost?
  • Will I have homework between classes?
  • Can you modify your teaching style if I have trouble learning?
  • Do you teach the Suzuki method or any other methods?
  • What should I bring to class?
  • How many types of music can you teach me?
  • What's your cancellation policy?
  • Can I pick a song I'd like to learn?

Rosa C.
I am very pleased with Lisa Fowler's instruction. I finder knowledgeable, experienced and very patient. I firs tried some learn through YouTube videos but quickly realized in our first lesson hat there is nothing like one on one training that gave me a much better start. She is teaching me things that I have never seen in the many videos watched and find tremendous value for the cost of my lessons.
