    During my time as a teacher I have learnt to adapt my teaching style to meet the specific needs of the pupil. I believe that everyone is capable of learning regardless of age or previous musical experience and I am equally comfortable tutoring absolute beginners or those with advanced skills. I teach the majority of my pupils on a one to one basis but also have experience teaching small groups.

  • A Complicated Wooden Box

    Anton Crayton Cello Teacher (North London) Picture I think the word 'technique' is misused. One who is a master of one's instrument has facility. Technique is the ability to use one's facility unconsciously in order to realise an abstract musical intention. Understanding this on a fundamental level transforms an instrumentalist into a...
  • Re-Teaching Cello Technique

    Corinna Boylan Cello Teacher (St Albans) Picture Though Seiji Ozawa has been known to say, "There's no single way to teach. You make it up as you go along" (Murakami and Ozawa, 288), I believe that in regards to technique, there may be different ways to teach it, but you should probably not make it up as you go along. There are several ways...
  • "The Cello Is Just A Piece of Wood....."

    Jamal Aliyev Cello Teacher (South West London) Picture I started playing the cello when I was 5 years old because my whole family are musicians. I was very inspired by the sound of the cello so my parents decided that I should become a cellist. For many years I asked myself, "What is the point of playing the cello? It's just a piece of wood with...

 

  • Cello and Freedom

    Lorenzo M Cello Teacher (Birmingham) Picture When we talk about playing the cello in a physically natural way, we're generally referring to something that should feel easy and relaxed, or at least free of stiffness and tension. On closer examination, it's not really a matter of being "relaxed", but rather of how energy is channelled...
  • Rachmaninov Sonata for Piano and Cello Op.19

    Richard Ward-Roden Cello Teacher (Cambridge) Picture The three published sonatas of Rachmaninov, one for piano and cello, and two for piano solo, hold a stylistic affinity with the two sonatas of Glazunov, but are regarded as being superior - mainly because of their being more genuinely musical. Although they are equally passionate in their...
  • A Happy Cello Pupil Makes A Happy Teacher

    Nina Kiva Cello Teacher (South West London) Picture I strongly believe that every pupil will have their own relationship with the teacher, which is completely different to everyone else's who is studying with that same teacher. This is why, I believe it is imperative for the teacher to adjust to each pupil, in the way in which they learn, and...
