Set Up for Excellence: Preventing and Fixing Common Problems in Young Cellists

Clinic Synopsis:

Nothing is more important for beginning and intermediate cellists than good set-up. This workshop will present simple, effective, and fun-for-students (and teachers) ways (effective in both group and individual settings) to establish good posture and left/right hand/arm position and function in beginning students and to fix bad habits continuing students may have developed.
