My job for any student is to help cater to the student's individual goal while also making learning the cello as painless as possible. When I work with a student, I want the student to achieve the following concepts: 1. Setup. Cellists will have good posture and be able to make cello playing feel easy. 2. Tone. Every sound a cellist plays should come from a good sound. 3. Intonation/Music Reading. Every cellist has the ability to play in tune. In order to do that, they will become fluent in reading music. 4. Musicality. The fun part of music making is when they are able to express music with ideas. Cello playing is daunting and can seem impos...

LAT says, "Dr. Yulia Lipmanovich tailors her teaching methods according to each individual student and his or her individual goals. Her knowledge of the different music literature and composers is vast and she imparts a style of playing as taught by her very well-known teachers. In addition, she is very patient, understanding, and acts as an excellent guide. Working with her has truly broadened my understanding of Musical Interpretation and more fundamentally, Sound. I cannot recommend studying with her enough. Whether you are returning to the piano after a long hiatus (like I did), or just beginning no matter what the age, you cannot go wrong studying with her. Finally, as a working Concert Pianist, Dr. Yulia organizes a series of Recitals, Student Concerts, Masterclasses, and is very involved in various Festivals. Her students can and are encouraged to participate and from personal experience, I can say that these supplementary activities, in addition to regular lessons, have been invaluable. " Read more

Rachele P. says, "She went really in depth with my monologue preparation and we explored lots of different ways of looking at the text. I enjoyed the pace that we took through the whole process. I felt very prepared and confident in my material. As with singing, we delved into some warm ups that were unfamiliar to me but helpful in improving my voice. I felt that I was able to sing my audition songs better because of them. She was a great coach and I got into the program I'm in because of her! Thanks so much Kate!!" Read more

Your Music Lessons questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do music lessons cost?

Music lessons cost $40 to $90 per hour. Most teachers offer weekly lessons in order to provide regular feedback, keep students motivated, and provide enough opportunities to learn new techniques and pieces of music. More frequent lessons do not provide enough time to practice and master skills between lessons.

To save money on music lessons consider group lessons, which are often cheaper than private lessons and allow you to learn from other students. Another option is to take online lessons which tend to be more affordable than in-person lessons and can be a great way to learn from a qualified teacher that isn't local. Finally, look for scholarships or grants to help pay for music lessons.

At what age can you start music lessons?

The best age to start music lessons depends on the individual and their interests. Most experts agree that children can start learning music as early as 3 or 4 years old when they can communicate and follow instructions. There is no age that is too late to take music lessons – even seniors can benefit from learning or improving their musical skills.

Studies have shown that children who are exposed to music at an early age have better language skills, memory, and problem-solving skills. Music lessons help improve fine motor skills like hand-eye coordination and finger dexterity which are important for other activities like writing and drawing. Learning to play an instrument can also build a child's self-confidence and help to develop a child's creativity.

How long does it take to learn an instrument?

The amount of time it takes to learn an instrument depends on the instrument, the student's age, and the amount of time they practice. In general, it takes several months to a year to learn the basics of most instruments including how to read music and play basic scales and chords. With regular practice, students can expect to play simple songs within a few months.

Piano, guitar, and percussion instruments are some of the easier instruments to learn. Strings and horn instruments take a bit longer to learn. Becoming proficient at any instrument takes several years of lessons and regular practice.

Do I need an instrument at home to take music lessons?

No, you do not need an instrument at home to take music lessons, but it does make it easier to practice and improve your skills. Without an instrument at home, you will need to find an instrument to practice between lessons if you hope to improve.

Before investing in any musical instrument, you will want to talk with the music teacher to find the instrument that is right for you. Guitars are a popular instrument for beginners since they are relatively inexpensive to buy. The flute is another simple instrument to learn and is a good choice for students who want to learn to play an instrument quickly. Pianos are a more costly instrument but are a popular choice for families since everyone can enjoy playing the same instrument.

How do online music lessons work?

Online music lessons are similar to in-person lessons, only the teacher and student are not in the same physical location. Using video conferencing platforms such as Skype or Zoom, the teacher and students can communicate with each other from the privacy of their homes.

In order to take advantage of the affordable online lessons, you need a computer and internet connection with good audio and video quality to avoid frustration. The teacher and student join the video call and the lesson proceeds in the same way they would for an in-person lesson. Online music lessons require more focus and patience and are not suggested for very young students.

What questions should I ask a music teacher?

Here are some important questions you should ask a music teacher before you start taking lessons:

  • What is your teaching style?
  • What is your experience teaching music?
  • What are your rates?
  • How long are your lessons?
  • What is your availability?
  • What are your expectations for students?
  • Can you provide references from your current and past students?

How do I choose a music teacher?

Choosing a qualified music teacher is important for those wanting to learn or develop their musical skills. Find a teacher that fits your schedule, budget, and learning style by following these recommendations:

  • Look for a teacher with a degree in music or years of experience teaching your preferred instrument.
  • Make sure the teacher with a teaching style that suits you. For example, if you learn better with a more formal teacher that focuses on technique, don't choose a teacher that is more relaxed and focuses on creative, free-style playing.
  • Find a teacher that is affordable for your budget and has availability for lessons that fit your schedule.
  • Confirm that the teacher will help you reach your goals whether it is to learn a new instrument, read music, learn music theory, or just have fun.How do I choose a music teacher?

Dr. Yulia is very dedicated and passionate of teaching the student what is needed and necessary to know in the lesson. I've been studying with Dr. Yulia for over 2 years now which my piano performance improved quite a bit. Wouldn't recommend any other instructor except for Dr. Yulia.
