Along with my other teaching at the festival I will be offering an amateur adult cello workshop along the lines of the cello workshops I have run for almost 20 years in Lubec, Maine. Hundreds of adult amateur cellists have attended and enjoyed these workshops. We have a morning technique class, master classes, private lessons, ample practice time, ensembles with other instruments when possible and appropriate. The festival will also sponser excursions to Florence and Sienna. For this workshop no audition or tape is necessary. All levels are welcome, come as you are. Please contact me if you are interested.

Peter Lewy has taught cello at the United Nations
International School for the last 15 years. In
addition he teaches at the Green Meadow Waldorf School
and has been a member of the cello faculties at many
other NYC area music schools, including the Center for
Preparatory Studies in Music at the Aaron Copeland

department at Camp Encore/Coda in Sweden, Maine for 9
years and founded The
Cello Workshop at SummerKeys in Lubec, Maine,
where he still teaches. He is co-author of Nuts and
Bolts, a Technical Supplement for the Study of the
Cello, and has maintained a large teaching studio of
students of all ages and levels for 20 years. "I take
great pride in having started many adult beginners and
have seen them go on in time to great satisfaction
playing in amateur orchestras and enjoying chamber
music." Certified at the School For Strings in
NYC as a Suzuki teacher, Peter now offers Suzuki
cello classes to students of all ages and levels on
the Zoom platform.
I am a performing cellist and
