Children ages 8 and above are welcome to begin cello lessons. New cello students who have taken a year or more of piano lessons often hit the ground running much faster,and settle into lessons more comfortably than those who have had no prior music experience.
If a child has never had music lessons of any kind prior to beginning cello, it can sometimes feel overwhelming. Not only does the student have to learn the “language of reading music,” but also how to make music using a new instrument. This combination can frustrate some new students and cause them to give up too quickly. Our goal is to ensure student comfort so little successes can build and inspire confidence.
Youth students from beginning through advanced will be encouraged to participate in studio recitals twice a year to showcase their musical growth and gain performance experience playing in front of a small, supportive audience. As students progress, they will also be encouraged to participate in group lessons, playing an individual part to harmonize with others and create chamber music.
Cellos of all sizes available for student rental @ $25/month.
