Next week I am attending the 2015 Cellospeak Skill Builder workshop at Bryn Mawr College in Bryn Mawr PA. My cello teacher received a post card about the workshop that he passed along to me. I'm his only adult student, and I'm the only adult beginner I know. Being able to experience cello with other adult beginners is very exciting.
The workshop is a full week, Sunday through Friday, with private lessons, ensemble and technique classes, daily practice times, and opportunities for individual recitals. Participants stay in dorms on campus, and all the workshop activities are on campus.
My wife and I are flying to Philadelphia on Friday so that I can pick up my rental cello on Saturday. The whole thing starts Sunday afternoon. It's going to be a full week, but I am excited for the opportunity.
