What will I learn in my cello lessons?

Our cello teachers understand that every student is an individual, with personal musical needs and goals. We make it a priority to tailor lessons to the individual.
When you enroll, the first thing your teacher will do is ask about your favorite type of music. Together, student and teacher set goals to help accomplish musical aspirations. We love beginners, so even if you don’t know where to begin, we can help!
While children make up a good percentage of our student roster, we also love to work with adults. There is no such thing as being too old to learn to play cello.
So, if you have the desire to learn, we have the desire to teach you— no matter your age.
