CROSSING TO SCOTLAND IN THE CATSKILLS

Under Abby’s careful guidance non classical and classical cellists enjoy an immersion experience playing Celtic and American traditional music, with plenty of opportunity to hone skills in playing by ear, developing harmonies, and creating rhythm back up. She works on bowing styles, cello technique, musicality, ear training, and improvisation. In addition to jam sessions and classical cello ensembles (including Bach on the Deck) evenings include walks on the beautiful Ashokan Reservoir or Zydeco dances, and always the popular Community Ceilidh Music Party on Saturday night. Home cooked meals (garden-to-table) are an additional highlight of this fabulous experience.

 “There’s nothing better than a group of cellists playing together! Add the beautiful outdoor
environment and camaraderie of fellow musicians for a unique and very enjoyable Retreat.” 

"My favorite thing? I think the entire experience- learning Celtic cello fiddling
in a magical place with like-minded wonderful people” 

“ I loved everything but my favorite would be you and your style of teaching-so knowledgeable,
yet comfortable and encouraging with your ever ready smile and attentiveness” 

“ This workshop has been a wonderful and warm cello experience for me. As a returning student,
the individual attention and supportive environment has encouraged and inspired me.
The tunes, different each session, are always fun to play.”

three of these.
Thank you for what you’ve contributed to my playing and to our music world.”
