Event Description

Some traditional material from Sevcik, Popper, Schroeder, Feuilliard, Duport and reference to the Suzuki sequence of cello literature; study excerpts will be included prior to class start, with a curriculum of what will be covered each day in class. What will be discussed? The importance of consistency in bow hold; flexibility of bow hold; development of both on and off-the-string strokes to continue to acquire proficiency. These strokes will be emphasized: detache; martele; double-bowing; sautille; spiccato; down-bow and up-bow staccato; colle. Strategies for working on and teaching these strokes will be discussed, as well as helpful material/repertoire that can be used to this end. Presenter prefers live participation rather than via Zoom – this will give the opportunity of interaction and accurate feedback between the presenter and the participants. However, the option of remote participation is possible.

Price: $485.00

4 enrolled out of 10 maximum.
