OXFORD CELLISTS could be the solution for you!
Oxford Cellists has been created for anyone who enjoys playing, or would love to learn to play the cello. It currently exists in the form of group cello classes which take place during the evenings, with the aim of providing students with an opportunity to learn and play the cello in a friendly, social environment.
As a member of Oxford Cellists you will have the opportunity to improve on technique, whilst also playing in an ensemble, working on a varied repertoire that is tailored to suit your level, whether beginner or experienced.
The Oxford Cellists classess are about more than learning and playing the cello; they are about you taking time out for yourself, playing music in a supportive environment, challenging yourself with your own goals, and realising your potential as a musician.
If you would like more information on any cello classes please visit the ‘Courses’ tab, or email us via the ‘Contact’ tab. Thank you!
“Jennie has a very positive way of teaching which has kept us all engaged – she has an ability to teach well, and respond to the needs of individuals as well as the group. The lessons are friendly and informal; fun; everyone works hard together – it feels like a joint endeavour. I think this is a really good way of providing a safe way into learning a new instrument; group learning may be the way forward!”
