  • Does Practice Make Perfect With Music?

    Miss Ariane Zandi Cello Teacher (Harrow) Picture We are all familiar with the saying "practice makes perfect". Of course, it is much easier to quote sayings than to actually fulfil them, but practising an instrument is an art in itself. Knowing how to practise is a real skill. How much should we practice? This depends on your goal. For...
  • No It's Not A Big Violin...

    Lily Beatrice Cooper Cello Teacher (South East London) Picture No it's not a big violin. No I don't have a body hidden in there. Yes I do wish I played the flute... not really... but prepare yourself to be asked these questions and more when travelling with your cello to perform around London. The cello is a temperamental beast, but place the horse hair of...

    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...
