I help amateur students make radical progress to find their cello flow and sound fantastic.
Who would have thought, that at my age, (somewhere beyond fifty…), that I would be playing the best cello of my life?
Gymnasts and figure skaters peak in their teens, and baseball and football players peak in their twenties.
Singers peak in their thirties and forties.
Yet and still, in the last few years, my own personal cello playing has found new heights.
My technique is the sharpest it has ever been.
My musicality is over the moon.
I can skillfully play pieces that I could not come near in my twenties.
Why am I playing better than I ever have before? Better than the days when I was busy getting a Masters Degree from Manhattan School of Music?
Better than when I was in the Cirque du Soleil “O” show?
Better than when I was in the Tucson Symphony Orchestra?
I will tell you why.
It’s not how long you practice, but rather, how you practice, and more importantly, how you think about practicing.
I have developed a system to help cellists find and retain their sharpest musical selves. It’s called the smart and mindful method, and I can’t wait to show it to you…
So if you want to hear about the practice techniques that will keep you healthy, both mentally and physically, and that will propel you forward to make daily radical progress and finally start to sound fantastic, you will want to join me for this free Master Class Series.
