Should my daughter take cello lessons?

My daughter has taken piano lessons for several years and is very good at it. Her school is just starting an orchestra and my daughter wants to join the orchestra. I have talked to my daughter's piano teacher and she thinks she should learn to play the violin. However, my daughter has her heart set on playing the cello. I just want what’s best for her. My biggest concern is the expense. I would think that cello lessons would be very expensive compared to the violin. I have checked around my town and a few neighboring towns and have yet to find a cello teacher. I was just wondering if anyone can give me any advice in this. Should I insist on my daughter playing the violin? Where could I find a good cello teacher if one is not available locally? Would the lessons for the cello be very expensive? Any advice from anyone out there would be appreciated.

I wouldn't recommend insisting upon your daughter to take violin. But I do recommend signing her up for lessons. If you insist, for one she'll probably not enjoy playing the violin and then her sound won't be all too good, in fact, it might even be terrible. There'll be no dedication, no sparks towards playing, no drive. She probably won't practice and she'll probably opt for other things rather than playing. Another reason is if she still takes the cello, she'll have conflicted feelings about it. She might feel bad about it and all that, and her tone won't be very good and she'll probably lose her drive.

You don't need to sign her up for lessons. I am a teen and I play the cello, though I am not the greatest, I can play fairly well and I do not have a cello teacher. The school music teacher will teach beginners how to play the instrument they chose, or my school did, and from there you'll be able to play, of course, this requires summer school. But, it is recommended. I play the cello and love it, and I'm doing all right, but I could be far better. I'm searching for teachers right now and under study of one of my friends, who's been playing for years, I've improved greatly.

To find a good cello teacher, since you obviously don't want a bad one, it's best to:

-Seek teacher recommendations from friends, other cello students, music stores, and schools (school music teachers are a good source of referrals).
-Attend school and community concerts and local recitals. Watch for good players and ask the students whom they study with.
-If you have a university or college nearby, contact the music department. Many music professors run private studios or can give you a recommendation for good teachers in your area. If the professors don't have room for new students, ask if any of their advanced pupils give lessons (this approach may work for any good teacher with a full studio).
-Local chapters of professional musician unions often maintain a list of musicians you could contact for referrals. If your community has a professional symphony or chamber group, attend their concerts and ask the performers if they or their students have a teaching studio with room for new students.
-Contact local music teacher organizations for referrals (e.g. in the United States, members of the Music Teachers National Association or the American String Teachers Association; in Canada, the Canadian Federation of Music Teachers' Associations; or in Europe, the European String Teachers Association).
-Numerous online music teacher directories are available on the Internet. For example, if you’re interested in a particular teaching approach such as the Suzuki method, use search terms such as Suzuki Association of the Americas or International Suzuki Association in your Internet search for teachers.
-Ask prospective cello teachers for references, and evaluate their credentials. Who did they study with? Do they ever perform on the cello? How long have they been teaching? What level or age of students do they generally teach? What approach to the study of the cello do they take? (e.g. is there a particular cello methodology they favor?) What are their expectations of students?

The cost of lessons really depend on the teacher. Different teachers change different rates.

-For a group lesson, each lesson should cost about maybe $30 per hour, but it's not recommended. Music lessons should be given individually, because everyone learns at different speeds.
-Some teachers charge around $50 per hour of lesson. Good teachers (those with music degrees and/or experience) tend to charge more. $80 an hour would usually be how much such people would charge. There're some teachers who charge more than that.
-Some other teachers charge according to grades; grade 1, grade 2, etc... with the price per lesson increasing with each grade.
-You should call several cello teacher, preferably teachers with music degrees, and choose than.
