National Summer Cello Institute


The National Summer Cello Institute is a unique program tailored for professional, graduate, and advanced undergraduate cellists.  The focus of the program is on the close relationship between effective use of the body and musical communication.  Twenty two cellists who are selected by audition submission delve deeply into the connection between body awareness and cellistic proficiency, musical expression, effective teaching, and injury prevention. 

All selected participants attend the full two week Your Body Is Your Strad program, which include the Feldenkrais for All Musicians component.  They are exposed to a range of performance and pedagogical topics, represented by internationally acclaimed faculty.  

2014 NSCI faculty includes Uri Vardi of the University of Wisconsin - Madison, Timothy Eddy of the Juilliard and Mannes School, Richard Aaron of the Juilliard and University of Michigan, Feldenkrais Practitioner Hagit Vardi of the University of Wisconsin Integrative Medicine Program.
