Discover piles of fun repetition games, practice competition plans, incentives and approaches for setting, keeping and pursing long and short term goals for students. All through games and activities that will keep children delighted and engaged. With the smallest amount of effort, and a stack of games, students will be begging to do more practice! While focused on cello technique etc, these ideas can be translated to the learning of any musical instruments so other instrumentalists are very welcome.

What to bring: Your cello (students and teachers), a notebook to jot down all the ideas and willingness to take part in games and have a bit of fun.  This workshop will be held for a minimum of 6 participants/max 20. Cost $20 per person.

10 Darling St. Medindie

Bach’s Cello Suites are much loved today, and beautifully played by many cellists. However, their true historical background is poorly known, 

even by leading scholars and cellists.Bach was probably the original cellist for all except the first suite. The other five suites were all composed 

for Prince Leopold of Köthen (Anhalt), and Nos II, III, IV and V all have hidden messages for the Prince, which refer to dramatic events in their shared lives.

Suite II quotes Couperin’s “La Sultane”, of which Leopold apparently obtained a copy from Couperin in 1712, during a visit to Paris.

Suites I to V were played on a half-sized cello (originally held horizontally as a ‘da Spalla”), while Suite VI was for Bach’s tiny Violoncello Piccolo of 5 Strings, 

near in size to a large viola.

Musical-illustrations from Suites I to V will be played by Smith on a late -17thC. cello in original condition, and from Suite VI by Agnes Weinstein on 

a copy of an instrument made for Bach. There will also be visual displays and many handouts.

Maximum participants 20. Admission $10
