Most beginners start out with a cello rental, which includes the cello, bow, and case. A high-quality rental usually will cost around $20 to $40 a month. If you are considering buying a cello, student instruments begin at around $500. Our instructors can provide recommendations and insight to help you choose the right instrument that suits your needs. When buying or renting a cello for a young child, make sure they are present to ensure the instrument purchased is the correct size for their height and age.

No particular style of teaching is taught by each teacher. Students and teachers are all very different and will make more progress when the lesson style is fit to their particular needs. Many teachers will work with the student on their own particular goals while teaching them how to technically play the instrument, and read music. If there is a particular method of teaching a student is interested in studying, Musika is more than happy to find a teacher that specializes in their desired style.
