Welcome to Cellospeak

Let your fingers fly!

Cellospeak is a community of cello enthusiasts who enjoy sharing their love and knowledge of the instrument. We believe you can begin your journey with the cello at any age. We run two week-long summer workshops (Skill Builder and Ensemble), as well as virtual Cellospeak Studio programs for adult cellists of all levels. Founded by pedagogue Dorothy Amarandos in 2000, Cellospeak is a one-of-a-kind paradise for lovers of this most mellifluous and noble instrument.
