Are you interested in learning to play the cello? If you have never taken lessons (or it's been so long that you feel as though you never have) and you are looking for a solid foundation, you have come to the right place! The overall aim of this online course is to give students a global sense of what is involved in looking after a cello and taking lessons, and to be truly prepared with the right skills to handle beginner cello books, lessons and/or learning 'by ear'.

Included are three fun background tracks to to enjoy playing your newly-learned notes to! Using photos, text, audio samples, and over 45 minutes of instructional video, the course provides you with a wealth of carefully considered material, presented in a logical sequence that makes the perfect precursor to starting a "beginner cello" course.

Topics include:

-Finding an instrument (no matter where you live or if you are on a budget)

-Equipment and Care

-The basics on how to use both your body and the instrument to make sound

-Play-along tunes

-Common cello and music-specific language

My name is Catherine and I am a cello teacher who is passionate about guiding people in discovering knowledge and building confidence in their area of interest. I love the challenge and reward of helping to facilitate "lightbulb moments" in my students, as I celebrate and learn from the variety of strengths I encounter in each person. I have been teaching music for over a decade and the experience continues to teach me about what more I can bring to you, the student. One thing I know for sure is anyone can learn something they put their focus on. It takes a good deal of commitment and the willingness to let go and have fun, but I am happy to encourage you every step of the way!
