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.

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.

I appreciate the individual support my son receives at Rogers School of Music so he can excel at school. Summer lessons help him to keep up his skill level.Susan
After only one voice lesson, I noticed a difference in my singing. The teacher was even more knowledgeable than I expected (and talented, too!). I learned an amazing amount in that one lesson, and am really looking forward to more. I would definitely recommend Rogers School of Music.Michelle P.
Drew is really patient and very encouraging. He really focuses on the positive and not the negative during our sessions. I’ve learned more about music from Drew in the past 6 months then from any other teacher/method I’ve tried in the past 5 years.Todd F.
We can’t say enough wonderful things about Rogers School of Music. We have two daughters who enjoy receiving the gift of music education through the wonderful instruction provided by encouraging teachers. My daughters are encouraged to stretch in their learning. The teachers provide a positive environment along with a fun learning atmosphere. We look forward to our weekly lessons! The customer service and professionalism demonstrated by all of the staff, from the teachers to the front desk personnel makes us feel a world class welcome each time we arrive. The gift of music education is an investment we wouldn’t want to experience anywhere else!Stephanie Louder
I can’t say enough good things about lessons! I could talk all day. He loves it so much. It was one of those things where he plays tuba at school, but they have jazz ensemble and we thought he would love to try bass. It was a big commitment to buy the bass and do the lessons, but it was the best decision we ever made. His confidence is way up! He says “I love it so much.” Winning student of the month gave him even more confidence, and he is so proud of it! We love it– we absolutely love it. He is doing great, and I don’t STOP telling people how great you are and how their kids should come for lessons too.Stacy W
I just can’t tell you how happy I am with my experience at Rogers School of Music. I’ve taken lessons from so many places over the years, and never had it go so smoothly–because the musicians often weren’t so good at the business side of things. Everything is so well planned and laid out, starting with the contracts and schedules. You never have to guess, everything is clear and concise. I always feel welcome here, from the minute I walk in. And I love my teacher! So thanks!”Jan S.
I got signed up and had my first lesson last Wednesday! It went very well. I was nervous going in, but my teacher was very nice to work with, and I was actually comfortable. I look forward to my future lessons, and after the first lesson, I have every confidence that I can actually do this!An adult student
Rogers School of Music is an amazing place! People are friendly, teachers are wonderful, and both my children are very successful with their instruments. Their teachers not only make their lessons fun but sharing their love of music has inspired my children to practice, to be proud of their accomplishments, and share their new musical talents with others!Erin B.
My teacher makes it fun to not just learn rock music, we talk about it and I love that he can pick up a song and work with me right away on it.Bill M.
Mike was a great fit for my child, my son thinks he is “cool” which helps my son be more excited to go to lessons every week.Julene
Our son really likes his teacher Anna and so do we. We appreciate her dedication to her profession and he compassion for it also. It transfers onto our son.Bette
