Cello/Viola Lessons & Group Classes

Cello/Viola Private Lessons

Private lessons are offered in 30,45 and 60 minute lengths. Suzuki style lessons are great for ages 3-adult. Parents play an important role in the lessons and home practice. Lessons are taught at the Professional Building at 1838 Parkwood Avenue in Toledo. String students do not need to procure an instrument before lessons start. Brand new student?
