How and what I work on during our meetings
During our first meeting, I will ask you to play a scale or/and a piece you feel comfortable with.
Then, we will talk, I will tell you what think we could work on and how. If you agree we will then establish a plan based on your needs and goals.
We will be working on posture, breathing, concentration in addition to the common repertoire. About advanced levels my goal will be to help you in solving technical issues due to posture, prevent injuries, work on focus, help you define which interpretation you want to make, you will find your answers, I will only also you the questions you need.
For cellists already enrolled in conservatory, you can combine both, I am used to working with conservatory students enrolled in universities / conservatories, I keep our meetings confidentials.
About amateur adult students, I will be happy to teach you, only in Berlin, no live beginners.
Also, if you have tendonitis problem, back pain, etc. we can find and fix the problem together.
BOOST YOUR TECHNIQUE
By working on scales, you work on your posture, intonation, sound, breathing, concentration.
Scales should be the most important part of your practice time during your studies.
Once you can play well scales, thirds, sixths, octaves, arpeggios, you have a strong technique for the whole repertoire.
We can work on posture and breathing
Find more freedom in your playing
Focus on interpretation and Improve your practice time.
We can also work on vibrato, make comments about your cello & the way it reacts, the set up, talk about sound, comment your videos and videos and interpretations from other cellists, also talk about strings, bow hair, set up depending on the sound you want etc...
We will work on Your sound and style.
FOR THE LOVE OF GUTS !
If you really want to connect with a cello, you should try the experience! PLaying on a full baroque set up will make you rediscover the cello, and the vibration.
Feel the resonance /breathe with your cello/be free to move without endpin/reconnect with Bach?
