Our Faculty

Cellospeak Faculty

Cellospeak faculty hail from many different backgrounds, specializing in different genres and teaching styles. They lead active performing careers and have received degrees from some of the most prestigious music schools. Cellospeak is thrilled these amazing musicians share their knowledge and talent at the summer workshops every year.

Workshop participants have the opportunity to work with several faculty members throughout their chosen session. Our 1:4 instructor to participant ratio allows for maximum engagement.

Our entire 2019 Workshop faculty, including faculty participating in our 2020 Cellospeak Studio, are  individually featured below.

List of Faculty Members with Virtual Lesson Availability

Several faculty members are offering private lessons remotely. Cellospeak does not endorse individual teachers (all of our faculty members are excellent!), but below are the faculty members offering such lessons who have agreed to be listed on our website. Rates will vary from faculty to faculty (Cellospeak does not set any). If interested, please contact Bomin Collins at bomin@cellospeak.org for your interested faculty’s contact information.
