Teaching is part of my passion for cello and music.
I am the author of "The Cello Practice Helper". I teach all levels from adult beginners to professional level, what matters to me is the motivation of my students. I am now accepting new students. I am a performer, I play "modern" cello, but also 4 and 5 strings baroque cellos (recently recorded the Bach cello Suites). My method is based on posture, movement, breathing. It is inspired by various methods like Alexander Tecnics, Feldenkrais, Sophrology, Yoga. Some of my students call it the "cello therapy" ;)
With advanced students I focus on the alliance of the body and the mind. In order to let the music speak, I try to free the movement through posture and breathing. It is very important to the advanced students and professional cellists to work in their posture, it is the key to a strong, healthy and pain-free career.
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.
