18 years teaching cello and a lot of personal research...
My method is based on posture, movement, breathing, self confidence, awareness in order to build a good cello technique and performance attitude. It is inspired by Alexander tecnics, Feldenkrais, Sophrology, Yoga.
Some students call it the "cello therapy" ;)
“The better you use yourself, the better you will play.” Pedro de Alcantara
My work is an alliance of the mind and the body. I try to free the movement in order to let the music speak. It is very important to the advanced students to work in their posture, because it is the key to a strong, healthy and pain free career.
“Of all my skills, none is more important
than the ability to organize my time.” Twyla Tharp
Most of the students lose a lot of time in unusefull practice time. A good practice routine is the key to great success. A good posture combined with a good practice routine is the best way to avoid overuse syndrome and tendinitis.
I am a concert cellist based in Berlin, I did my undergraduate studies in France and my Master degree and post grad degree in USA. I speak English, Spanish and French.
Teaching is part of my passion for music : sharing. I have been teaching for more than 18 years, and started Skype teaching in 2014. It inspired me to create The cello practice helper , an online help for cellist.
