  ABOUT ME...



..


Teaching is part of my passion for cello and music.

I work on the alliance between the body and the mind to help my students and colleagues connect with their cello.

In order to let the music speak, we will free the movement by working on posture, movement, and breathing. My method is inspired by various methods like Alexander technique, Feldenkrais, Sophrology, Yoga. Some of my students call it the "cellotherapie" because I also work with cellists dealing with injuries, stage freight and coaching.

I play and teach "modern" cello and baroque cellos (4 and 5 strings).
