Come develop your playing!
Learn in a supportive friendly atmosphere and scenic splendor
For more than 25 years cellist Peter Lewy has run workshops dedicated to helping amateur adult cello players improve their skills. This year he will be offering his highly acclaimed workshop in beautiful Tuscany Italy.
The workshop offers five private lessons a week, use of private practice studio two hours daily, daily group classes, ensemble work, 2 “master class” style instruction classes per week, and an end of week performance opportunity in our home venue, the breathtaking 18th century ovoid theatre with 45 boxes:
Teatro Comunale degli Arrischianti(see above). An accompanist is available.
The Cello Workshop offers an intensive practice/study vacation for busy adults who rarely have this kind of time to devote to their instrument during the rest of the year in a breathtakingly beautiful setting.
Each day begins with an hour-long group class for all participants at 9 AM.
Other Activities include a Faculty Concert and a performance opportunity for those who wish to improve their performance skills. There is no audition and no minimum skill level, the premise is: “Come as you are to enjoy the study, the work and the beauty of one of the worlds most spectacular regions, Tuscany”. Absolute beginners with no previous instruction to professionals and everything in between, all are welcome.
We all learn from each other!
Peter Lewy has been on the cello faculty at the United Nations International School for more then 20 years in addition to various other conservatories. His classical credits include serving as principal cellist and concerto soloist with several NYC metropolitan area orchestras including the Brooklyn Chamber Orchestra, the Westchester Philharmonic, the Bronx Symphony, the Greenwich Village Orchestra, the Bergen Symphony and the Regina Opera Orchestra. In addition he has made numerous recital and chamber music appearances in all the major venues in NYC including Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center.
