A word from our teachers

"A cello ensemble is a very special and rich sound.  The cello is blessed with a range that covers the vocal range from bass to soprano, and while the instrument is incredibly lyrical, it’s very versatile: it can also be a walking bass or cover inner rhythmic parts, be a high descent…the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
