Cello Seminar

Age 10-18

Enrollment for Cello Seminar is not currently open.
Please fill out our inquiry form for more information about our next enrollment period.

This class offers cello students of intermediate and advanced levels the opportunity to explore all things cello within a collegial group setting. This allows for peer input and the chance to explore a particular topic or theme in greater depth than can be covered in weekly private lessons alone. Topics may include how to prepare for auditions (including MMEA junior and senior districts); new ways to approach scale practice; listening to historical cello performances; ensemble playing; and exploring non-classical repertoire styles on the cello. The Spring 2021 monthly Seminar will be held remotely on Zoom.
