If you would have told me three months ago that I would be playing the entire first Bach Suite on my cello, I would have said no way. But here we are..."

"I’m an experienced but good amateur cellist… I just finished my first series of classes with Marcie and what a personally rewarding result! Her very personable passion and style are an inspiration and propellant for pursuing new playing milestones.
I never thought of playing any portion of the Bach Suites....and whenever I heard them I 'knew' they were above my capability. The Cello Guru showed me I was wrong!

How do I know if a Six Step Series is something that will help me?
-If you are dedicated to the program and committed to daily practice, these courses will transform your playing. No question.
Why did you design these courses?
-I designed the Six Steps Series because I noticed that many cellists have some solid abilities on their instrument, but they are afraid to break out and try other kinds of music, even though they may want to very much. They just need a little help becoming unstuck. I have also found, after teaching twenty five years, that giving a student one main focus for a period of time is invaluable for learning and assimilating ideas.
