Emotion and pleasure

Only having learnt this magnificent instrument for three months, but being extremely motivated, I decided to do a weekend cello course. I was warmly welcomed into a house made for music. The weekend allowed me to consolidate the technical skills I had already acquired, and to acquire new ones in group and individual lessons. But, above all, I discovered all the emotion and pleasure of playing with other musicians. This year I’m coming back! But for a whole week this time!!!

“Thank you for a truly wonderful experience studying with you and staying at your house.  Your teaching is inspirational yet at the same time intensely practical.  You gave me a number of extremely helpful suggestions to improve diverse elements of my technique, as well as endless insights and ideas on the three pieces we worked on together.You consistently conveyed all of this in a clear and incisive way, while being fully supportive throughout. We were touched by your generous hospitality that made us feel immediately at home. We came away amazed by the good fortune we had in learning about Belle Serre and having the chance to be part of what you have created there.”
