About the Course

The lesson plan begins with Dr. Asch’s guidance through instrumental anatomy, cleaning the cello and bow, cello string care, adjusting the bridge, cello tuning, breakdown and setup. Students will learn proper posture and how to correctly position their bodies, bow, and cello so their alignment will allow for a seamless sound from the instrument. Once students are confident with the basic elements of the instrument, instructor Dr. Asch will guide each learner through an individualized lesson plan including music theory lessons in rhythm, meter, key signatures, tempo, and expression.

There are no required prerequisites before enrolling in Dr. Asch’s Cello for Beginners course. Students will need an instrument of their own as well as paper and pen for notes. Those enrolling need to ensure they have the time to commit to the weekly online lessons, and independent practice as well. Upon successful completion of this course, students can expect to be able to confidently play a small beginners repertoire of songs and will be prepared to enter an intermediate level cello course.
