The cello has become a widely popular instrument in recent years. It has successfully expanded into folk and modern music similar to the way the guitar did long ago. Cello lessons at Dungeness Music Academy explore classical, folk, and popular approaches to cello playing. In our cello lessons we pay special attention to establishing good habits early on so that technique can develop naturally and with ease. At our music academy we utilize fun exercises and assignments that develop our student’s sense of pitch. This makes playing in-tune develop into something natural and makes playing the cello much more enjoyable.
LEARNING TO PLAY THE CELLO
CELLO LESSONS: FUN MEETS PASSION
Playing the cello is just plain fun! It’s fun to move your body around a giant instrument and the acrobatic motions remind me of dancing. But then consider that with that one instrument you can easily go from playing Brahms in the day to distortion and heavy rock at night. We provide cello lessons in Sequim that explore all the possibilities. Our students enjoy playing a variety of styles and can then discover what types of music they are most passionate about.
PLAYING THE CELLO IN AN ORCHESTRA
The symphonic role of the cello ranges from bass lines to melody in just about every style and era of music. Playing cello in a symphony orchestra is a blast because you never know what’s coming next. It could be anything and so come prepared! This is because the instruments of the string family are exceptionally versatile, and the cello perhaps most so.
