Cello Students! Lessons begin at age 8. What class can we take if our aspiring cellist is younger than age 8?

The initial  journey for young cellists can be challenging, especially with coordination and literacy. Beginning cellists at Myriad are guaranteed a fun, effective, encouraging start in our unique Violin Suzuki Class (ages 4.5 – 6) or  Violin Teams. (ages 6-9). These are small classes, with a combination of team activities and private lessons for each student.

Mentoring new cellists requires just the right touch! We know from years of experience that our  Violin Suzuki Class  and / or Violin Teams provide impactful, lasting, positive foundations. Research shows students who begin in our smart String Foundations Class, or Violin Team classes have a better retention rate, exhibiting ‘grit’ in the initial learning stages. These young students are most likely to progress, minus frustration, and stay with their cello for years to come. Violin Suzuki Class or  Violin Teams are the best choice for your 5-9 year old aspiring cellist ~ hands down! Class times for Violin Suzuki Class and Violin Team Classes are limited, so secure your spot in these special classes today!

100’s of Practice Cello Videos created by Myriad teachers especially for our students

Along with teaching our students how to become good string players with healthy, lasting cello technique, we provide as many tools as possible to engage happy, productive home practicers. We’ve created 100’s of practice videos for our students, recorded at slower practice tempos with a model of relaxed, tension-free neck, shoulders, arms, and hands with relaxed, healthy bow technique. Avoid going down the Youtube rabbit hole of poorly executed string instrument videos, tumbling along at speeds that mislead impressionable students. Learn alongside these Myriad videos, a great practice aid for our late elementary – late intermediate students.

Our teachers help cello students solve these challenges:

For parents, we have many tools to help you know if your child is excelling. Parents are provided with a “Smart Practicing Guide” and “Correct Cello Home Set-up” guidelines.  Follow the curriculum your child is learning and celebrate their success!
