Our Approach to Cello Lessons
We fully acknowledge that each aspiring cellist is a unique individual. While it is true that everyone must begin in the same place, where you go from there is completely up to you. The flexible style of our instructors will foster your musical creativity, offering wisdom, and guiding your technique to levels of excellence. While creative expression is strongly encouraged, we incorporate certain features across the board for all our students, especially in the beginning phases of instruction.
Are you interested in cello lessons, either for you or your child? Great choice! We believe that instruction in cello provides the best preparation for all other types of musical instruction. The cello is one of the most popular and needed instrument in many different musical environments, and it’s a fantastic hobby.
Our teachers all hold university degrees in music, and structure private lessons around the student – working through repertoire from beginning to advanced levels.

“My daughter took lessons at The Music Room for years. She tried a number of instruments over the years; violin, piano, and bass guitar. The Music Room’s team was unfailingly responsive and flexible whenever my daughter wanted to change instruments. I highly recommend The Music Room for rental and lessons. I felt like they really cared and they made working with them easy. Carol, Carley, and everyone else we interacted with was great. The Music Room taught my daughter a love of music without pressure or fuss.”
