Popper Duet 4

I’ve made more duets for my online cello students.

Enjoy playing with the melody or the harmony. With the videos, you always have a duet partner even when practicing alone.

Musical Cats

Charlie is not the only cat who likes music. Teaching online lessons, I’ve met some other musical cats.

Charlie is jealous of the cats with front row seats.

He’s dreaming about his friends coming back to play.

He can’t wait to play the musical alphabet game again.

Concerto for 2 violins

This is a rehearsal recording from last spring. The video was taken as the students were preparing for the May recital.

As much progress as my students are making working through online lessons, I’m looking forward to having small groups meet again.

Santa Lucia

I have over 100 new teaching videos as a result of online lessons. Here is one of me checking a duet part.

Now it is possible to be in a room alone and play duets.

Practicing cello while isolated

I made example videos of the Lee Op 126, No. 4, 7, and 9 for one of my online students. I also did the duet parts so it would be possible to play with the “Miriam in a Box.” I hope it makes it more enjoyable.

Sorry Charlie

The piano just doesn’t sound the same during online lessons.
