This guide is intented for adult music loverswho want to learn to play an instrument avoiding as much as possible theoretical academic lessons. It is mostly a collection of useful information, adapted to the present time, to learn cello playing by your own after a few preliminary lessons. Then, after one or two years of practice, you will reach a sufficient level to approach the baroque German, French and Italian repertoire as well as pieces of variety, what I did. You can even play at home with a virtual accompaniment that will adapt to your rhythm, fruit of the latest research of IRCAM (French Research Institute of Music).
This guide includes practical considerations, often unknown, such as the transport of your instrument by plane, the free and legal downloading of scores, the sites where to find a teacher who will come to your home. For a total monthly budget of less than $ 100 for the first three months, including the first lessons, all this is accessible to you !

À propos de l'auteur

Après avoir publié trois biographies, une méthode et des partititions pour violoncellistes adultes débutants - elles se vendent de bouche à oreille depuis deux ans - ainsi que des recueils de nouvelles et de poésies, voici deux romans d'anticipation: EXPLORA et le dernier publié BOOMERANG. La science, la technologie, le surnaturel ont été volontairement mis au second plan pour se concentrer sur les confrontations humaines face à l'inconnu et l'utopie des explorations humaine. Comment se confronter à "l'autre" venu du monde interstellaire, psychiquement et physiquement pas très diffréent de nous. Une nouvelle dystopie, l'époque en est friande, qui se déroule cent ans après le vol de Youri Gagarine, en Russie, aux Etats Unis et en France, sur fond de migration de grande ampleur et de déclin des grandes agences spatiales comme la Nasa et Roscosmos. Presque deux ans de pratique d'exercices d'écriture en groupe animés par Emmanuelle Jay, mêlant poésie et exercices de l'Oulipo, m'ont apporté richesse dans le style et appronfondissement des personnages.

1 Academism or not?

You decided to play the cello because you were seduced last summer by a string quartet concert, which you attended in an enchanting setting. Or you inherited a string instrument which was forgotten in an attic for fifty years. You are retired and you want to start learning a music instrument ... but so far you have never dared to do it

Academism or not? For an adult, the question really arises and the music academic school or the music conservatory is far from the only solution for learning and maintaining the pleasure of playing. Ask the question in your surroundings. Who attended the music conservatory and who still regularly practices the instrument? You will find that the vast majority gave up on the pretext of lack of time. But in reality, it is probably the lack of enthusiasm due to this academic learning or simply the logic of selection of the best musicians who is the cause. Could not the conservatory’s motto be summed up as excellence or nothing?

But except for registration in a city public music conservatory or a private conservatory, you do not see how to concretely proceed. Very quickly, you were asked about your knowledge of music theory and you feel that you do not have the required level. Is there available room in adult classes? The schedule and the day of availability of the lessons on Friday from 20:00 to 22:00 do not suit you ... Finally the cost of the instrument and the registration to the course make you think. Can a cello be transported otherwise than in a heavy and voluminous knight armor?

All these obstacles naturally stop you to take the plunge.

This approach is there to encourage you to try if you accept to ignore the works of the 19th and 20th century in your potential repertoire. I mean the works you would not be able to play because they require a real knowledge of music theory. For the baroque repertoire that is within your school solfege level, it will take a little daring and perseverance. What are the real prerequisites?

* A room where you plan to play regularly. It must be sufficiently insulated phonetically (neighbors) if you live in a condo, and big enough to get the fullness of sound. Mute abstain! It inhibits the musician and also the instrument,

* An instrument maker whom you have already
