In this video we discuss some cool extended techniques – or techniques that are not part of the normal way of playing. Originally, even pizzicato (plucking) was considered an extended technique, as it was not bowing the instrument. Today, however, pizz is quite common, and “extended” techniques can get pretty far out. Come have fun exploring! If you’ve ever heard cello, it’s likely you’ve already fallen in love. I know so many people who tell me it’s their favorite instrument. And you might have gotten to the point of asking: can I just learn how to play this marvelous instrument? As someone who’s gone all the way through the journey of taking lessons, practicing many hours, and eventually being able to make cello my living, I know as well as anyone how challenging this endeavor can be. And if you’ve ever tried on your own, you may have run into roadblocks yourself. Well here on this channel, we’re hoping to demystify the whole process of cello piece by piece, and hopefully get you to where you want to get with it. Our hope is that with these videos, you're going to be able to overcome the obstacles facing beginner cellists. We want you to be able to get into this as economically as possible, and as on your own as possible – at least to start. Thanks for watching!
