What is the Cello Choir?

An orchestra made up exclusively of cellos, offering the opportunity to learn ensemble works and foster musical experience through social setting.  

What does the Cello Musicianship class do?

These classes are for the cello players specific. While all the musicians need the common musical knowledge across the board, we focus on useful and functional cello playing related knowledge. 

As well, your child will learn broad music general knowledge through the course of learning. 

Please see below for specific contents.
