Folk Cello Study Group
- In-Person Classes
**THIS IS AN IN-PERSON CLASS**
This group class offers cello players an opportunity to learn new skills on their instrument through tune-based learning. Building on the skills learned in Beginning Folk Cello, or previous experience, this class will focus on learning new techniques based around the group’s stylistic interests and goals. The Folk Cello Study Group offers accountability from like-minded musicians, as well as a creative, relaxed, and fun space to learn.
Folk Cello Study Group is designed for intermediate and advancing players. Participants will need a pen/pencil and recording device – your phone’s ‘voice memo’ app works great!
Need an instrument to rent? We suggest visiting Johnson Strings.
