Angelese P. says, "Dr. Park's vast wisdom and knowledge on cello and orchestral cello repertoire is an invaluable asset in his teaching. Not only is he an amazing technical teacher, Dr. Park's encyclopedic knowledge of music is not only impressive but is very rare to see in a young cello instructor. It is inspiring to say the least! He also shows that he cares about you outside the studio and is very personable and friendly. I greatly enjoyed my lessons with Yeil when I was at ASU. I would recommend him to anyone, no matter what age or level you are in your cello-learning journey!" Read more

Willie F. says, "My daughter has been going to A Musician Is..... for 6 years now. Many hobbies have come and gone but not her desire to play the violin and I believe that has alot to do with the teachers here. I've sat in on many classes and it's amazing to see the progress my daughter & son have made, the knowledge they have gained learning to play , the discipline they have learned thru practice and being a musician and how to apply that to everyday life. Nikki's music knowledge and the tidbits she throws your way makes each class entertaining. My daughter & son (piano for 1 yr now) look forward to all the recitals and they gets a kick out of people of all ages dressed up nervous and excited to perform. Love the group classes and group recitals also. It’s a family atmosphere and after all this time it’s been great to see everyone grow and improve. One of the best decisions I’ve made. Getting my kids into lessons and having music playing in my house every night!!" Read more

Dan L. says, "Chris McCarthy is an excellent instructor for both young and adult students. He presents music concepts orally, visually (using props), and by demonstration. He uses the Suzuki method so I better understand how to apply necessary cello skills and techniques. Chris listens to my concerns and addresses them with ease. I've also become a better violin player with the skills Chris has taught me. His positive energy makes me want to practice. I am so fortunate to have found Chris McCarthy as my cello teacher."

Your Cello Lessons questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

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?

Reviews for Ashburn cello lessons

Mark L.
My instructor is excellent. He plays guitar professionally for a variety of styles and has an effective teaching manner. He is patient and encouraging, and has been adaptive to when I have a physical challenge for that needs accommodating for a few lessons.

Dr. Park is not only an incredible cellist but the best cello teacher you could hope for. He guides you to improve technically and musically, asking questions along the way so that his students have their own realizations and each form their own musical identity. His Socratic approach meant that I always left my lessons feeling inspired and even more fascinated about music than before.

My daughter has been working with Miss Nicole over 2 years and she loves come to her and learn some new violin skills . It is never too late to start, but it is difficult to continue to practice it. Thank you so much for Miss Nicole’s patience .

Chris McCarthy is a talented musician and a fantastic teacher. He brings a lovely blend of discipline and fun to his students, which keeps them engaged and interested, while also fostering the love of the instrument they play. My son’s love of the cello seems to be reinvigorated after each lesson. We drive from south Orange County to Costa Mesa for lessons, and it is absolutely worth it. I have recommended Mr. McCarthy many times over, and will continue to do so. We are so grateful for his guidance.

Working with James has been nothing shy of amazing. He is able to teach us so much in a short amount of time together each week. He’s been incredibly encouraging, positive and knowledgeable. He’s made such an impact on my son’s outlook, piano lessons have brought him right out of his shell. We couldn’t say enough great things about him!
