About Learn to Play Cello for Adults with Amber Walton-Amar
Learn the fundamentals of cello playing in a welcoming, group setting with Amber Walton-Amar! This course is designed for those with no musical background and no prior experience with the cello. Through a variety of games and exercises, participants will first learn about proper set-up, including healthy body alignment, good bow usage, and appropriate left arm positioning. Once a strong foundation is established, Amber will introduce strategies to help guide participants towards creating beautiful tone and good pitch. Repertoire will be drawn from the Suzuki Method, and participants will also explore their creativity through improvisatory exercises drawn from the Creative Ability Development method. Technical work will include scales, arpeggios, tonalizations, and more. Learning together in a group will help reinforce the enjoyment of learning a new skill through the sharing of common challenges and goals. Participants must supply their own cello (please see note below regarding affordable cello rental options!).
