Well...Yes and No. It all depends on a combination of elements. Although we all consider fun in music to be the most important part, it also means that your cello teacher will have high expectations for you, and you'll need to truly master the skills and music that you're working on before moving on to something new. Truthfully, there's no better way to become a great musician than to receive private cello lessons from a talented, experienced, motivating, passionate and patient cello teacher who wants to see you succeed and who understands and uses the cycle of music learning.
Remember that, when you take private cello lessons, you'll receive your teacher's undivided attention. You'll be able to progress at a pace that is just right for your needs. Your cello teacher will be able to hear the nuances in your performance and can take the time to adjust small things, like your posture, volume, articulation, intonation and phrasing, that can make a big difference in your development as a musician.

Prior to the evolution of the violoncello as a solo instrument at the end of the 18th century, Italian makers made basso instruments of large dimensions. In scores we see the term violone. Corelli violin sonatas op V (1700 ) are called Sonate per il Violino e Violone o Cembalo. It means that they actually could be played as duo. Like most, if not all, early italian cellos, around 1680, this instrument, the violone, was reduced in its dimensions. The 'modern' cello is more elegant and allows the cellist to play more virtuoso music. Since the body of the modern cello is slimmer, the sound is less dark and clearer.
As the cello is a versatile instrument it can be used in various music styles. Wonderful solo concertos are composed for the cello by Vivaldi, Dvorak, Saint Saëns, Lalo, Shostakovitch, Schumann and many more. It is always present in symphonic and chamber music repertoire, classical, romantic and contemporary classical music, and the magnificant 6 suites by J.S Bach. But also in jazz, pop, background strings and even heavy metal and hard rock plays the cello an important role.
