We've also developed a cello teaching program specifically for adults.
(Adult learners do not have to become members of the LSG or BSI).
We often find that the parents of our young cello students want to try playing the cello as well - so whether you're a complete beginner or want to pick up lessons from where you left off, we have classes designed just for you.
We don't offer "taster lessons" as such but since we know that it is important that the chemistry between teacher and student is good and the student is happy with his choice, we offer the possibility of observing other student's lessons.
Once you have had enough opportunity to do your research and you are happy and ready to sign up, we advice every student to really go through the logistics of his daily life and make sure that he or she actually has enough time for practice.
For a successfull start there are three points which need to be considered:
1) You need to set a goal
2) You need a good plan
3) You need to follow it through
Lesson attendence should be regular and practice should be on a daily basis (10 minutes a day are worth more than one hour three times a week).
Adults receive one lesson per week on a one-to-one basis.
There are up to three ensemble sessions / group lessons per year.
Unfortunately at this stage we can not offer more group classes for our adult learners but we are happy to help you and advise you on finding an appropriate amateur orchestra which you could attend on a weekly basis.
