Programs of Study

  • Explorer Program: Fun, introductory lessons for students who are interested in, well, exploring cello study. They'll learn to play Classical and popular repertoire while also learning the elements of music theory and ear training. All Explorer students participate in collaborative goal setting and receive biannual progress reports.
  • Elite Program: The Elite program is designed for students who are committed to serious music study. Students will work on standard cello repertoire, in addition to having weekly theory and ear training homework. Biannual progress exams and summer lessons and/or participation in summer music festivals are mandatory for Elite students.
