ABOUT "THE CELLO PRACTICE HELPER"...

Baroque Cello


I see myself as a guide, a coach. I give "tools" to help my students / colleagues to free their playing. 

Teaching is part of my passion for cello and music. My method is based on posture, movement, breathing, self confidence, awareness in order to build a good cello technique and performance attitude. Is is inspired by various methods like Alexander tecnics, Feldenkrais, Sophrology, Yoga.  Some of my students call it the "cello therapy".  I play "modern" cello, but also 4 and 5 strings baroque cellos, teach in Berlin and Online.

I focus on the alliance of the body and the mind. In order to let the music speak, I try to free the movement through posture and breathing. It is very important to the advanced students and professional cellists to work in their posture, it is the key to a strong, healthy and pain free career.
