What do students need to bring to their first lesson?
Students need to bring their instrument and a notebook to their first lesson.
During an intro lesson, beginners will learn how to hold the instrument properly and play the four open strings of the cello. Non-beginners will present the materials they have most recently been studying. After four introductory lessons, beginningers will be able to play several folk songs, including Mary Had A Little Lamb and Hot Cross Buns. Non-beginners will have a clear direction to pursue technical studies and repertoire.
