About the Workshop

CelloChanWoods is presently the only retreat of its kind. Now in its 16th year, CCW has a successful track record of creating a multi-faceted environment conducive to cellistic and artistic transformation. Participants clarify and deepen their personal visions of what it means to be an artist and cellist.

At CCW cellists spend seven days and nights learning how to understand tension and release in playing, to solve technical problems, and experience a close-knit, supportive musical community. Our staff consists of professional graduate cellists ranging from Juilliard, Indiana (Jacobs) Music School, and the University of Michigan. Participants receive one-on-one mentoring from staff, chamber music coaching, improvisation classes, and daily lessons. Suzanne Smith founder, professional cellist, and Zen Buddhist, teaches mind body integration and how to better concentrate and reduce frustration in practice and playing.

CCW accepts cellists from age 15 up to adult for summer 2024.
