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.
When you choose in home lessons, you choose convenience. You are able to save time in your day, and save you money by not having any travel expenses. For younger students, learning in the atmosphere of their own home can make for a better experience. It may be easier for children to learn when they are in a familiar environment and feel more at ease. For adults, it is the benefit of not having to travel to yet another place during your busy day/
Music lessons are tailored to each students specific needs. All students are different, and will progress using different methods. Our teachers will work with the students on a case by base basis, ensuring that each student works to their highest ability. All lessons will be comprised of some variation of learning to read music, learning how to technically play the instrument, and learning to progress in their musicianship. While Musika does not mandate a particular style of teaching, if there is a method you are interested in we will do our best to match you with a teacher that specializes in that area.
Musika works with students of all ages. Adults can take lessons at any skill level, whether it be beginner or advanced. Our teachers will make a specific lesson plan to help adult students progess in their studies, and aid them in any specific goals they have. While many people think only children begin music lessons, our adult students have had great success in increasing their musical abilities!
We recommend children begin cello around age 7 or 8. With the cello being a larger member of the string family, it is important that the child is comfortable with the size of the instrument. Our knowledgeable teachers can help you choose the correct size. As beginning students, children are introduced to the technical aspects of playing, musicianship, and how to read and understand music.
