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.
In home lessons is the most popular choice with Musika students. It allows both beginning and advance students to study their instrument even with very busy schedules. You will not spend time or money on traveling, and will have the same quality of lessons with our qualified instructors. Children and adults both love the idea of in home lessons as it allows learning to occur in the comfort and securtiy of their own home
Every student is different, and each lesson will be different. There is no particular teaching style that Musika mandates, but if you are looking for a particular method, such as Suzuki, we would be happy to find a teacher that specializes in that. In lessons you will learn to read music, play with proper technique, and advance your musicianship skills. Some teachers will have students buy particular method books. These materials are inexpensive and will be used for teaching and practicing.
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.
