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?

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.

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?

My daughter has been learning violin with Jacob Litoff for two years. She started at 5 years old. We started in person and soon had to shift to remote learning due to COVID. At this young age, it needs a lot of patience from the teacher and the parents. Learning remotely makes it even more challenging. Jacob has been extremely patient with us. He's also flexible whenever we need to reschedule. He has taught us 3 Suzuki books and pieces from a bunch of other books. He has also helped us with several songs that we wanted to play at some events and we got to advance our techniques more quickly through these flexible curriculum. I strongly recommend Jacob for your kids.
