We are pleased to bring back our popular cello course to Musicfest, an opportunity to work intensively with Kari Ravnan on all aspects of cello playing. Teaching will take the form of individual lessons, workshops, discussions and performance classes. Participants should bring at least two contrasting works and some studies that they wish to work on. Kari would like to receive an indication of intended repertoire well before the start of the course. They will also be time for individual daily practice, which will be an integral part of the course. Cellists will also be assigned to chamber groups.
