  • 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...
  • 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.

There are several ways...

    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...
