Maria is on faculty at Suzuki Music Columbus and is a Suzuki certified cello instructor. She has years of experience teaching students of all ages and abilities. Students range from age 4 to 65 and lessons are based in her home studio in Clintonville.
How long are lessons?
Lessons are weekly and range from 30-60 minutes, depending on the age of the student. We typically decide on a lesson length at our initial consultation lesson.
Do I need a cello before my first lesson?
No, you do not. We will discuss sizing and details at our first lesson. However, if you already have a cello, bring it in!
Do I have to purchase a cello for lessons?
I strongly encourage students to rent cellos from the Loft Violin Shop, in Clintonville. They have a fantastic rental program, which allows you to trade in your cello for a larger one as you grow, until you reach a full-size instrument. Plus, all repairs are included in the rental fee, and 100% of the monthly fee goes towards the purchase of an instrument. The Loft has a team of luthiers on site to quickly repair instruments, as well as all auxillary needs, such as rockstops, stands, and stools.
