The closest sounding instrument to the human voice

My goal is to help cellists connect with their cello through posture, movement, breathing, as well as understanding the connection between the body and the mind; so the sound of their cello becomes their voice. 

Learn how to use you body to create your sound.

BACH CELLO SUITES
Reversing the bowing technique?

"Some move the bow as is customary on the viola da gamba,  that is, instead of a down-stroke from left to right for the principal notes, 

they make an up-stroke from right to left, beginning from the tip of the bow." J. J. Quantz about cellists, Berlin, 1752 excerpt from "The art of playing the flute"
