Cello lessons and chamber music classes for adult students.
Cello Lessons for Adults at Brooklyn Cello & Alexander Technique
The important stuff...
- We accept intermediate and advanced players
- Our approach to teaching and playing is rooted in quality of movement through the principles of the Alexander Technique. When you learn how to observe whole body as you play, your inherent sense of poise and coordination starts to work for you and your technique falls into place with way less effort. You also experience a greater sense of enjoyment and freedom, so that you leave lessons and practice sessions feeling recharged.
- We offer pairings for chamber groups, chamber music classes, and opportunities for more in-depth study
- Learn more about who we are here
...And the fun stuff:
- Lessons are focused but fun. While we are serious about developing excellent technique and music interpretation skills, we keep things in perspective.
- We throw really great cello parties
- You'll meet an awesome group of people who love to make music
- And you'll learn how to bring a greater sense of mindfulness, purpose, and drive to your life outside of the cello (seriously, our approach has been dubbed "zen and the art of cello playing.")
Chamber Music for Adults at Brooklyn Cello & Alexander Technique
Fall 2018 Ensembles
Cello ensembles (trios & quartets) for beginner, intermediate, and advanced students will begin in October 2018. Classes are 6 weeks in length and rehearse at the Brooklyn Ethical Society in the evenings. All cello ensemble classes culminate in performance at Brooklyn Cello & Alexander Technique's Wine, Cheese, & Cello event with other groups. This is a low-key and fun way to meet other music lovers, develop your ensemble playing and listening skills, and play really great music. Exact dates will be posted in September. In the meantime, send us an email to let us know that you're interested in joining us!
