Description of service

As a former music major, I'd always wanted to learn how to play cello. I signed up for lessons at a music store that specializes in cello, and for $15 per half-hour lesson, I was very surprised at the quality of instruction. I received printed materials and a half-hour, one-on-one lesson for only $15.

Review of Service

I was paired with a graduate student in cello performance. She was an incredible instructor, and made my lessons fun as well as educational. For $15 for a half hour lesson, I was skeptical; but with a once-weekly lesson, I was up to beginner-level proficiency within two months. Of course, a background in music and guitar helped, but the specifics of learning cello were easy to master with such great lessons.


First, buy a nice instrument -- it'll make your lessons much more enjoyable rather than using a "beginner" or "student" instrument. Second, I didn't expect much for $15/half hour, but I was pleasantly surprised. Check out reviews for your instructor, and ask for references. You might be surprised at how great your lessons are despite the cheap price. And, most importantly, PRACTICE! The best lessons in the world mean nothing if you don't practice the theories you're learning.
