As a student begins lessons, they will need to acquire an instrument. A cello can come in different sizes, and while an adult will almost always play on a full size cello, it is important that children are matched with the right size. This can be done by your private teacher, or by any professional at the place of purchase, or rental. While some students may want to buy and own their own instrument, many students choose to rent. Renting can be beneficial in the sense that it is less of a financial commitment, and it is easier to go up in size when a young student grows out of their current instrument.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons at your home - a time saving solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home Cello lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
All of our Musika teachers are highly qualified and ready to teach everything the student will need to know to be successful with their instrument. There is no particular method of teaching used in each lesson, but rather the teacher works with the student to determine what route will be most successful. All lessons will have aspects of learning proper technique, music theory, and musicianship, as well as anything the student may be interested in learning.
All skill levels and ages are welcomed by Musika. It is never to late to start learning, and our teachers work with adult students of all ages and abilities. Whether you are an advanced student who wants to further their studies, or a complete beginner who is ready to dive into an instrument, adult lessons can be an extremely fun and fulfilling experience.
Young cello students will learn all aspects of how to play their instrument. They will be taught proper technique, and how to read music, all while working at their own individual pace. The cello is a large instrument, but comes in different sizes. Our teachers will be able to advise you on what size is best for the student. Our recommended age for beginning the cello is around 7 or 8.
