About the Workshop

Director and Cellist, Jeff Faragher is pleased to announce that he will be joined by Calgary Cellist and teacher Michael van der Sloot for Cello Focus 2023. MIchael participated in Cello Focus 2019 and we are very excited to have him join us again this year! Refine your playing with that iconic cello sound. The key ingredient to a truly warm and rich cello sound is a fully integrated vibrato. Spend a weekend building a solid understanding and foundation for a sustainable and effective vibrato that will enrich your sound. Join cellists Jeff Faragher and Michael van der Sloot in this 3 day intensive workshop where you will learn about the mechanics, theory and practice of a professional tool that you can develop for the rest of your musical life. The course will include instruction, practice and implementation in repertoire that will ensure the solid understanding of the techniques. This weekend will benefit those new to applying vibrato as well as those who are looking to enhance their vibrato.
