National Cello Institute
June 23-29, 2024
Claremont, California, USA
Summer of 2024 will mark the 49th National Cello Institute! Over the years, this has proven to be a truly unique experience for cello students of all ages and levels. Because enrollment at the NCI is almost exclusively cello students, we have the unique situation of having the most comprehensive program at the same time as having one of the smallest overall enrollments of any institute in the country.
Over 150 cello students regularly attend the NCI, and generally range in age from 5 to 18 and in level from French Folk Song to the major solo repertoire, and we also usually have a class of enthusiastic adult students. This means that no matter what your age or level is, there are going to be classes at the NCI that will suit you perfectly.
Plan to attend the National Cello Institute this year. It will be an experience you will enjoy and remember forever!
Cello Workshop Returns
Late February, 2025
Pasadena, California, USA
Taking place on a single day, the Winter Workshop is an intensive cello refresher and community learning experience, providing students 3 to 4 hours of classes during the day, culminating in an afternoon performance with the cello orchestra. Enrollment is generally around 50-60 students, with divisions into classes based on Suzuki book level. Several of our illustrious cello faculty make the trek to California to share their knowledge with us while we have an all-day cello extravaganza!
