Transforming And Enriching Lives Through Music

Cello Lessons

Looking to play the cello? 

The aims of the string department of the Music Trust are to develop good quality string players, and to encourage all string players whatever their standard to come and play in our ensembles. We are developing many exciting new ventures and projects. Our ethos is one of fun, but with clearly defined and structured routes to enable pupils to progress at an appropriate pace whilst giving opportunities to extend their musical knowledge and performance skills.


Our tutors at the Music Trust have a wealth of experience in all fields of string performance, teaching and ensemble training. See our staff pages for more details.

What we offer

The string department currently offers tuition in whole class (first access), small group and individual settings. We work in the majority of schools in Calderdale and are also able to accommodate pupils from outside the area at Heath Campus in the evenings. We also cater for adult tuition in individual or group lessons.

What are the costs? 

Every school in Calderdale has enrolment forms containing pricing information as well as contact details for the Music Trust. These forms can also be picked up from Heath Campus, Free School Lane, Halifax. Depending on your requirements, lessons normally run for a full term before any adjustments can be made due to invoicing and timetabling requirements. Lessons are available either at school or at Heath during evenings.
