FIDDLESTICKS STUDIO

PRIVATE LESSONS

CELLO LESSONS WITH VERITY MURRAY
Verity’s teaching combines her own experiences as a classical cellist with her personal interest in folk music. Her work with children is inspired by the work of ethnomusicologist and master teacher, Zoltán Kodály. Verity understands that each child perceives, experiences and learns in their own way and in their own time. Lessons are designed according to the needs and learning style of the child and match individual commitment to home practice and family expectations.

Verity strives to give her students the following:
1. A strong emotional connection to music and the cello
2. True musical literacy
3. The tools to play by ear
4. Ensemble skills and the confidence to play in a group
5. Effective and efficient practice habits
6. Effective and efficient approaches to achieving goals
7. A stress-free approach to performance
