Starting from age 9 to adult, the cello is a very beautiful and rich sounding instrument that you can learn quite easily.  You may have heard that it is hard to learn, but actually it is not.  You can learn to play classical, popular, jazz, blues or a little of each. I use many methods, but I really like Vamoosh and Suzuki, I adapt the way you learn to your musical preferences and strengths. You can learn to play the songs that interest you while learning how to:

- produce a nice sound on the Cello
- use proper bow technique
- play with accompaniments or with other musicians
- read music
- develop your ear
- read and understand musical symbols on sheet music
- learn technique and musical theory
- care and maintain your instrument

don't worry if you know absolutely nothing in music, that's often the best place to start. All you need is a Cello that is the right size for you and a bow. The better the instrument, of course the more enjoyment that you and your ears will have, but it isn't necessary to start learning. I have students that own very expensive instruments and some that have inexpensive instruments. A starter cello is a little more expensive than a violin, because it is a larger instrument, but the most important thing is that you obtain an instrument so you can start playing.  Often I have students that rent one for a few months before committing to purchase one. The goal is to have fun and make some music!
