Cello Workshop

Age 11-18

During this week-long workshop, students will sharpen their cello skills through ensemble playing in a fun, supportive, and rigorous environment. The daily schedule explores topics ranging from technique to sight-reading, learning music by ear, arranging on the cello, planning ahead for junior & senior district requirements, critical listening, and exploring the beautiful world of cello-centric chamber music. This week-long deep-dive into all things cello will culminate in an in-person concert of chamber music and group-prepared solo repertoire. The workshop is open to intermediate and advanced cellists who have had at least two years of private study.

Students younger than 11 will be considered with teacher recommendation. If you are interested in this program, but fall outside the age range or prerequisite, please contact us by email registrar@bmsmusic.org or telephone 617-277-4593.
