Ages: 4-17 and Adults
Length: 30-, 45-, 60-minute
Meets: Weekly, scheduled individually

All cello lessons are taught as private, one-on-one music instruction and are available in lengths of 30, 45, and 60 minutes. We suggest kids and teenagers begin with 30-minute lessons and progress to longer lengths as your teacher recommends. For adults who have some previous experience, we recommend starting with 45- or 60-minute lessons.

Because each student is unique in their aspirations, lesson plans are tailored to each student by taking their goals, experience, and learning pace into consideration.


Cellos come in an array of sizes and our faculty are happy to help find the right size for kids. Because we understand that young children need extra encouragement, we strive to be patient, understanding, and make lessons fun and engaging. Lessons include fundamentals – such as posture, instrument position, bow and left hand technique, and music reading – and our teachers mix in fun songs and games to keep young students engaged.

Intermediate and advanced lessons focus on performing repertoire from all musical periods. More advanced bow and left hand techniques such as spiccato, shifting, and vibrato will be covered, as well as advanced note reading, listening, and theory.


Beginning adult cello lessons work on basic ideas, such as technique and note reading. Intermediate and advanced students focus on repertoire and advanced techniques, such as spiccato, shifting, and vibrato, as well as note reading, listening, and theory.

Trial Lesson

We believe that finding the right teacher is an important first step in music education. To make sure this happens, we begin all new students with a trial lesson, which is a single lesson that can be scheduled and paid for without requiring students to register.  

Fill out the "Schedule a Trial Lesson" form at the top of the page, send us an email, or give us a call and our Program Coordinator will help you find the perfect teacher and time. 


Registration secures the same day and time for your lesson each week with your teacher and enrolls you in automatic monthly billing. Tuition is billed on the 1st of each month at a flat rate, regardless of how many lessons occur. We make billing simple by including holidays and scheduled breaks in our price.
