Hello. I have many years teaching experience here in the UK and in the US where I lived for 8 years. My approach to teaching is one involving ergonomics.I try to teach how to use your own body shape and size to your advantage.
Rostropovich had the longest, slender fingers imaginable, yet Heinrich Schiff has very short, very chunky fingers. How do they both play an instrument the same size so well?? They learned to use what they had been born with. I steer clear of the "cut and paste" approach to cello teaching. My goal is to get you feeling comfortable around your cello. Then playing becomes the rewarding experience needed to encourage true learning.
