Background & Offerings

SKYPE Chamber Music Coaching

I’m an experienced cellist-conductor offering classical chamber music coaching via SKYPE to amateur and professional groups looking for fresh ideas and renewed confidence to reach their audiences. A Juilliard graduate, I have performed and taught chamber music widely throughout the world, often with my wife, the prominent violinist Shirley Givens, in venues like the Aspen, Victoria (Canada), Fontainebleau, and Puerto Rico Casals Music Festivals.

A comment from The Rev. Richard Helmer, Pianist, Mill Valley : “Harry’s decades of performance and conducting experience draw out the very best in our chamber performance, and his intimate knowledge of the score lead us to deeply explore the composer’s musical imagination.”

Another from Attorney Nicholas Carlin, Cellist, San Francisco Bay Area : "My string quintet was fortunate to get Harry Wimmer to coach us via SKYPE. He is a great musician and can see and hear exactly what is going on, provide valuable insight into the pieces we play, make concrete suggestions for improvement, and seems to really enjoy working with us. I can wholeheartedly recommend Harry’s SKYPE coaching!"

My fee, payable via Zelle, is U.S. $150 - per hour, and can easily be split among your group’s members. I’m offering a 1-Hour Get-Acquainted Introductory Session.
