Adventures With My Cello // Observers

Sunday 9th October 2022 | 10.00am to 1.15pm
David Josefowitz Hall | Royal Academy of Music

With Helen Neilson & Thomas Gregory

Mountain climbing and cello playing share much in common: being willing to explore new places, learning to prepare properly to meet challenges, keeping going when the going gets tough and enjoying exciting experiences.

In this workshop we will learn to climb both the low and high regions of the cello, how to practice mapping the territory (finding our pitch/shifting our pitch), and how to focus our attention in some specially composed ‘Mountain Music’ by Thomas Gregory. See you there with all your gear!
