These classes are designed for cellists of all ages and levels! We will explore creative arrangements of pop tunes, old standards, classic hits, and anything else we feel like playing. There are parts for every level and ability - from simple lines and lead tones to thumb position and syncopated melodies - and it will be ALL CELLO, ALL THE TIME. Fun is always the focus - but some of the other benefits include independently playing your own part in an ensemble, learning when to play a supportive role or the lead, rhythm skills, counting skills, reading in other clefs, extended techniques, and holding a good groove...AND you can never have enough cellists as friends. These sessions have been structured for some overlap between the two classes for multi-age/level learning and large ensemble rocking out.
