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.
