General Information

In light of the cancellation of the 2020 Workshops due to Covid-19, many of you asked whether Cellospeak could host a virtual event instead. We held our first virtual Cellospeak Studio event on July 31 – August 2, 2020 via Zoom.  Unlike anything we had done before, this new 3 half-day program offered a wide variety of technique classes and presentations as well as live-streamed faculty performances.  Both the format of the program and the substance of the presentations was very well received.
We hope to offer more such virtual programs in the future!

Cellospeak Studio July 31 – August 2, 2020

Overview. For our inaugural Cellospeak Studio event, we had 71 registrants from all over the country and 17 faculty offering a very diverse and satisfying program of technique presentations, guided etude and duet practice and faculty recitals.  Some of the common themes of the technique sessions included body mechanics (or ergonomics) (for both the right hand and arm and and left hand and arm), techniques for achieving great intonation and sound, and strategies for demystifying the process of learning new music.
