Music is a way of life, a path that requires regular practice, study and deepening. For ambitious cellistswho want to travel this path, the Cello Academy Zutphen organises intensive courses and study days,closed with concerts at various locations. Also the Cello Festival Zutphen offers students a stage.
The Cello Academy teachers challenge their students to develop broadly, as a cellist, as a musician andas a person. Students develop into musicians who make music in a moving and inspiring way, who dareand are willing to play beyond technical skills. They learn how to communicate the emotion, that themusic evokes in them, to their audience and they connect with the audience.

Duration: 3 days
Students who attend the minimum of two courses acquire a guarantee of free participation in the International Cello Festival Zutphen in August.
