The folks of Postmodern Jukebox prove that music really can be genre-less (and timeless) by taking the pop music of today and reworking it into the styles of the 1920’s, 30’s, or 40’s. Sometimes they even throw in a cello part for good measure! Have a listen, and see what you think.
I recently observed a master class on the Haydn Divertimento in D for solo cello, and was inspired to learn it myself. Even if you aren’t currently working on this piece (Josh and Emily, I’m looking at you here), I’d highly recommend a listen.
Congratulations to Luke on his performance of Long, Long Ago in C major for the Magnolia Elementary talent show (and apologies for poor video quality)!
Suzuki teacher trainer Tanya Carey visited San Diego recently to teach Books 6 & 7 to a group of cello teachers from Mexico and Taiwan. Josh and Emily graciously agreed to work with Dr. Carey on the 6/7 repertoire to help the class learn–a highlight was playing the first movement of the Vivaldi Double Concerto […]
Congratulations to the cellists who performed at the Del Mar Fair at the beginning of the summer! We did a program that included Book 1 pieces and fiddle tunes with the violinists. (Many thanks to our accompanist Anna Tsai for the photo).

Congratulations to all of the cellists who performed in the April 27 solo recital at the Dove Library. I realize this post is several months late, but I wanted to recognize your achievement and show you this great picture of all of us!
