ULTIMATE flexibility

Baltimore School of Music isn't like a traditional music school - we give you the flexibility needed to make music lessons a success. Since we don't operate on a semester schedule, you can start lessons anytime and you'll never be locked into a long-term contract. We even offer the ability to reschedule 4 lessons during the school year to accommodate busy schedules.  


After your free trial lesson, you'll register for music lessons by filling out our one-page registration form. Registration secures the same day and time for your lesson each week with your teacher and enrolls you in automatic monthly billing. Music lessons are billed to a credit card on file on the 1st of each month based on the number of lessons occurring in that month. Students can stop lessons at the end of any month by submitting our online withdrawal form by the 15th.

Cello Lessons

All cello lessons are taught as private, one-on-one music instruction and are available in lengths of 30, 45, and 60 minutes. We suggest kids and teenagers begin with 30-minute lessons and progress to longer lengths as your teacher recommends. For adults who have some previous experience, we recommend starting with 45- or 60-minute lessons.

Because each student is unique in their aspirations, lesson plans are tailored to each student by taking their goals, experience, and learning pace into consideration.


Cellos come in an array of sizes and our faculty are happy to help find the right size for kids. Because we understand that young children need extra encouragement, we strive to be patient, understanding, and make lessons fun and engaging. Lessons include fundamentals – such as posture, instrument position, bow and left hand technique, and music reading – and our teachers mix in fun songs and games to keep young students engaged.

Intermediate and advanced lessons focus on performing repertoire from all musical periods. More advanced bow and left hand techniques such as spiccato, shifting, and vibrato will be covered, as well as advanced note reading, listening, and theory.


Beginning adult cello lessons work on basic ideas, such as technique and note reading. Intermediate and advanced students focus on repertoire and advanced techniques, such as spiccato, shifting, and vibrato, as well as note reading, listening, and theory.
