Upcoming online learning opportunity - workshop series Sept. 7, 14, 21, 28 4-5:30 pm ET:
Instigated by my friend and fellow cellist Mike Block, GUIDED PRACTICE SESSIONS will be happening in September on Tuesday evenings. It's not too late to sign up for this unique opportunity to practice in real time with me (especially unique because I'm not much of a practicer!)...this concept is such a useful tool for aspiring musicians and I am having a lot of fun designing my own ideal practice routine for this 4-week mega-workout! There's a lot of other wonderful sessions with amazing luminaries of the alternative string world happening this fall, and bundle deals are available if you want to try multiple sessions.
Hope you will join me on the practice train! SIGN UP NOW!
WE ARE BACK!!! (almost...)
Cannot even begin to express how excited I am to play music WITH people, FOR people again starting this fall with Alasdair Fraser...every single gathering we have is gonna be such a celebration of joy (and safe of course!). If you're still feeling travel shy, there are still many online learning opportunities available. Check out the tour page for details on where you can find us in the US and Spain this fall...
Hope to see you ON THE ROAD...feels so good to say that!
Stay safe and healthy out there, Natalie
