QUESTIONS 

.

  • What are Cello Biomechanics?

It includes understanding the mechanics of the sound of the cello and how to use your body to produce the sound you want. How to use weight, tension, movement, what is a force... Increase your sound volume without injuring yourself.

  • Do I need a baroque cello and baroque bow for the baroque cello class?

Not at first. If you want to have an introduction to the technique you can also use your modern cello and bow. We will work on the vibration of the string, the resonance, bowing technique and articulation. 


  • Are online lessons as efficient as in-person lessons?

Yes!!! Believe me, we will be working hard! I have 6 years experience with online teaching, I use an external camera, during the lesson you can see details you would never see in a in-person class, each Cellist has a personal access to his/her video after the class.
