Cello Lessons FAQ
Q. What is the recommended age at which to start private cello lessons?
A. The recommended age is 5 years. However, it is never too late to start learning and enjoying cello. We have students as young as 4 years old and as mature as 69.
Q. I want to try cello lessons. Where should I start?
A. If you are a beginner it usually makes sense to start by renting a cello. To make it more convenient for our students the Sharon Music Academy has arranged with the national chain Rayburn to deliver and exchange cellos on site. Just visit Rayburn’s rental page and choose “Affiliate: Sharon Music Academy” in “Select District” drop-down menu. Write down the confirmation number and email it to us. Students of the Sharon Music Academy may also have discounts on some instruments sold by Rayburn. Cellos come in different sizes and if you don’t know what size you or your child needs there is plenty information online to help you determine the right size. For high-end instruments visit Carriage House Violins.
Occasionally, when a student outgrows a cello, he/she will sell their prior instrument by posting an ad on our bulletin board.
