Cello Mastery Studio with Emmanuel Feldman

In this intensive advanced cello program, I’ll show you simple and powerful ways to:

 

  • Hold the cello in a natural and ergonomic way and to hold the bow in a powerful new way that gives subtlety, flexibility, power and endurance

  • Master balance and the use of free weight in both arms by animating the back and upper body for effortless bowing and left arm motion

  • Produce vibrato with ease and use it actively to shift, activate and balance finger changes bringing incredible flexibility to the left hand

  • Develop variety in musical expression through flexible tempo, multi-layer dynamics through bow placement, and vibrato widths and speed to expand sound color and intensity

  • Follow your own true musical instincts by animating your playing through expressive motion tapping into you own autonomous accuracy and intuition

  • Help you understand how to create logical and organized fingerings to have security and cello “GPS” while you learn, memorize and perform your repertoire

  • Tackle that new repertoire piece you want to learn and to demystify any cello problem with you!
