FAQs About Cello Lessons



Will I learn the Suzuki Method?

The Suzuki method, developed in Japan, teaches music much in the same way that we learn how to speak our first language. Through aural training and intuitive motions, students are immersed in the musical experience. At Haddonfield School of Music, we utilize the core concepts of this method to a degree, adding the important elements of musical theory training and note reading. Please call or email us for more information about our teaching styles and methods.



Where should I get an instrument?

Why, right here, of course! Our team of cellists have narrowed the crowded field of student-level violins down to the very best. Start your search here. For higher-level cellos as you progress, see our friends at Wamsley Violins,just a short walk from Haddonfield School of Music.


Do I need to bring a cello to the first lesson?

You will need an instrument to have a useful cello lesson. We can sometimes provide a lender instrument for your first lesson, but please make arrangements to have an instrument at the start of your musical journey.

Cello Lessons For Children

Lessons for children focus on motivation and enjoyable music making. The fundamentals of the instrument are “hidden” inside songs and exercises designed for rapid gratification.

Lessons are motivating, fun and energetic, helping the child to love performing and reaching goals.

Cello Lessons For Adults

The adult cellist has a home at Haddonfield School of Music. We hold several Wine & Cheese musical events throughout the year as well as have several adult ensembles, such as the Evil Cellos and The Accidentals, who meet weekly year-round.

Private lessons can be customized heavily to meet the specific goals of each student. Such goals could be as simple as “make my mother cry at the next family gathering,” but can also reach as high as the stars.


Cello Lessons For Teens

Teenagers have different motivations than adults and children. Also, they will often respond positively to a challenge. While expecting high standards from their students, the instructors maintain patience and understanding of teens’ life situation, which can be quite demanding.

Programs such as musicianship classes, string orchestra and state-endorsed certification auditions further enhance the musical education of the teenager at Haddonfield School of Music.
