While advanced students may choose to buy a cello, beginner students will need to decide whether they would like to purchase or rent. Most all musical instrument stores will have a rental program where students can pay monthly for their instruments. Rentals for beginners offer many benefits. For children, they will be able to easily move up in size as they grow. Your teacher will be able to let you know what size is appropriate to start with. Beginning adults will almost always start with a full size cello, but renting is less of a financial commitment than buying a cello.
Musika works with students of all ages. We teach adults at any skill level, whether it be beginner or advanced. The teachers in our network will make a specific lesson plan to help adult students progress in their studies, and aid them in any specific goals they have. While many people think of children when beginning music lessons, our adult students have had great success in increasing their musical abilities!
In-home lessons are 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 comforts of home.
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. The knowledgeable teachers in our network 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.
No particular style of teaching is taught by the teacher. Students and teachers are all different and will make more progress when the lesson is set up to fit to their particular needs. Many teachers will work with the student based on their own goals while teaching them the technicalities of how to play the instrument as well as read music. If there is a particular method of teaching a student is interested in studying, Musika is more than happy to match to a teacher in our network that specializes in their desired style.
Review by Emily
Steve gets you started right away with songs but also goes into music theory and reading music which adds to understanding and appreciation of the music. He is very approachable and you can tell that he absolutely loves music and teaching. It is hard not to be excited about the process of learning with Steve. If you are considering lessons I highly recommend Steve for any level of student.

“My son and I have been taking lessons with Lynn for 5 or 6 years now. She is very patient with younger students (& older students having "senior moments"). She is also flexible in her lessons in that if we want to work on theory, jazz, rock, blues, she will cater to our requests.” – Karl B., C.P.A., Aug 2015
Review by Wendy
Bill has been great with my 2 young children (age 3 & 6). He has integrated games into the lessons - they have enjoyed showing us how to play the games when it is time to practice piano. Bill has been easy to contact and rescheduling has not been a problem if we have a conflict at our regular lesson time.
Review by Bradford Putt
Angela has been a perfect match-up for me. She is warm and welcoming, and also serious about teaching - she keeps our time focused and on track. What I truly appreciate, as a new singer anxiously preparing for an event, is the confidence she gives me. Angela is very encouraging. I enjoy coming to class.
Review by Kaleen Todoroff
Noel is amazing. She is helping me to work toward my vocal goals for auditions to several musical theaters. She has helped me choose strong audition pieces and is teaching excellent ways to get the sound I need in a safe and healthy way. She works outside our lessons on new warm ups and new music pieces. She is the best.

"My daughter is 10 years old and has been taking piano lessons with Mr. Dale J. for almost 4 years now. She is progressing nicely. His kind and gentle way make for a very positive learning experience. Mr. Dale J. is encouraging without being harsh or belittling. He is patient and the ideal instructor for my daughter."
Review by Ginger
Unbelievably Awesome. My daughter is a beginner and has some special needs. Justin is more than patient and helpful while being completely thorough and pushing her (in a good way) to try harder. He is encouraging and teaches effectively. I am very pleased. More important, so is my daughter. Thank you Musika! So grateful we found your service and connected with Justin. We highly recommend him.
Review by Olivia
Andrew is very encouraging and uplifting, but also isn't afraid to tell you your weaknesses. Andrew also is super awesome with scheduling. Fits around your schedule all the time. He really knows what he is doing and can help you reach your goal in the time you would like to. Couldn't have gotten a better teacher, who continually helps me grow and pushes me.
Review by Brooklyn
Laura is a fabulous teacher. She explains concepts to me using concrete examples so that I can understand changes that I need to make to my posture, breathing, phrasing, etc. She makes warm-up exercises fun, and she's got a great sense of humor over all. Her teaching style is collaborative, more egalitarian (she respects what I already know and meets me at my level), tailored to my particular interests and strengths, and I always look forward to our lessons!
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
