I'm thoroughly enjoying my guitar lessons with your school! I am sure you will go from strength to strength, you certainly deserve to as you have definitely got a great school going there! I would also like to thank my tutor. He is a fantastic teacher and really re- ignited my passion for playing the guitar..
His lessons are always fun and the pacing of them is spot on!" Ed (Adult Student)Testimonials"I am writing to say how pleased we are with the teaching our son is receiving at A to G. He began learning bass guitar a little more than 2 months ago, and although always keen, his interest in his instrument and the desire to master it has really sharpened under your teacher's tutelage. Working with your school has been a bit of an eye- opener for him who has been used to learning in groups. His positive experience led to his asking if he could also have one- to- one teaching on his guitar. In fairness, the school’s group lessons were a brilliant way to start for him but his progress is accelerating now and it’s interesting to see how what he learns on bass is in turn helping him learn the guitar. Please extend our thanks to the tutors. Thank you to you to for your excellent administration and communication!" Lesley (Parent)"During the twelve months that my daughter has been attending A to G Music School, she has enjoyed excellent tutoring..
Her technique, knowledge and enjoyment of lessons have all benefittd from the teacher's attention to detail, wide knowledge and cheery demeanour. My daughter has enjoyed the last twelve months immensely and is very much looking forward to continuing her lessons with the School in the future." I. Merry (Parent)"I have thoroughly enjoyed the past year learning the piano at A to G. It is something I had been promising myself I would do for ages but never got around to.
My tutor is a great teacher, so enthusiastic and patient. My only regret is I didn't start earlier!" Sue (Adult Student)"I have recently finished 1 year being tutored on piano at A to G Music School. In that year I have advanced quicker than I thought possible, mainly due my tutor's patience and enthusiasm for the music we select. We play a lot of songs from artists I enjoy listening to and her ability to translate them to piano, at a level comfortable for me to play, is fantastic. This keeps me interested and each lesson is great fun. I look forward to seeing what we can achieve in my second year." Mike (Adult Student)"My flute teacher is wonderfully patient and inspiring. She has excellent teaching skills and has helped me to improve my playing and timing through constant encouragement and using a variety of well thought out pieces.
I would certainly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn or improve their flute playing!" Jules (Adult Student)"I thought I would only have four singing lessons to give me a little confidence but I enjoy the lessons and have learnt so much and improved so much that, over a year later, I am still having lessons. With my teacher I have progressed to learning to read music and I have grown in confidence with my singing and I now sing in an a cappella choir. Lesson with her are fun, she changes them slightly from week to week so there is no chance to get bored. Because I want to learn more about music, we spend some time learning more about the notes and the way they are written. I usually sing a song of my choosing, with my teacher providing corrections and pointers to improve my renditions. I can recommend her as a fun, thoughtful, enthusiastic and efficient teacher."

The Cello Site : : About the Cello. The violoncello, or as it is more commonly to refered to as the cello or 'cello (pronounced Cheh- loh), is a stringed instrument and a member of the violin family. The name 'cello is an abbreviation of the Italian violoncello, which means "little violone". The violone is an obsolete instrument, a large viol, similar to a modern double bass. The cello is most closely associated with European classical music. It is part of the standard orchestra and features in the string quartet and many other chamber groups. A large number of concertos and sonatas have been written for it.
It is less common in popular music, but the instrument is sometimes featured in pop and rock recordings. Among the most famous Baroque works for the cello are J.
S. Bach's Unaccompanied Suites for Cello (or as they are more commonly known, The Bach Cello Suites). An example of a Classical- era piece would be Haydn's Cello Concerto #1 and #2. Standard Romantic era repertoire includes Dvorak's Cello Concerto in B Minor, Cello Concerto in E Minor by Sir Edward Elgar, and two sonatas by Johannes Brahms. Modern compositions within the early 2. Paul Hindemith (opus 2.
Zoltán Kodály (opus 8). Recordings within the Avant Garde (cutting edge) genre have revitalized the instrument's perceived versatility. One example is Night of the Four Moons by George Crumb. The cello is much larger than a violin or a viola and smaller than a bass. Like the other members of the string orchestra, the cello has four strings, normally tuned to the pitches (from low to high) C- G- D- A (more specifically, C2- G2- D3- A3 in scientific pitch notation), like the viola but one octave lower (see #Tuning and range).
It is played in an upright position between the legs of the seated musician, resting on a metal spike called the endpin. The player draws the bow horizontally across the strings. The cello is a complex instrument consisting of many different parts. Although the majority of it is composed of wood, some parts are made of steel, composite material, rubber, and metal. Today, the strings are most often metal but can be made of nylon or other material, and like the hair of the bow (see below) must periodically be replaced. Body. The main frame of the cello is made from wood.
Cellos are normally constructed with a spruce top. The back, sides, and neck are usually made of maple. Other wood are sometimes used for the back and/or sides, usually poplar or pine. The top and back are traditionally hand carved. Less expensive cellos frequently have a top and back made of a laminate. The sides are made by steaming the wood and bending it around forms, or carved from solid maple. The cello body has a wide top, narrow middle, and wide bottom, the bridge and f- holes in the middle.
Also, it should be noted that some modern cellos are constructed from carbon fibre. Upper neck and pegbox. Above the main frame is the carved neck, which leads to a pegbox and then a scroll. The scroll is a traditional part of the cello and features in all instruments of the stringed family (except the harp). The three are normally carved out of a single piece of wood. The pegbox consists of four tuning pegs, each which tunes its respective string by either tightening or loosening the string. Ebony is usually used for the tuning pegs, fingerboard, nut (piece above the fingerboard which the strings rest on), and tailpiece, but other dark woods, such as boxwood or rosewood, can be used.
Tailpiece and endpin. The tailpiece and endpin are designed to support the cello when the cello is being played. The endpin, usually metal, is retractable and is placed at a comfortable distance. The side of the endpin touching the floor is usually a spiked tip that can be capped with rubber; both serve to grip the floor and prevent the cello from moving or slipping. Bridge and f- holes.
The bridge elevates the strings above the fingerboard. The bridge is not glued on; tension from the strings maintains it in place. The f- holes (named for their shape) are located on either side of the bridge, and serve to allow the instrument to properly sound (produce sound). Additionally, f- holes are as access points to the interior of the body in case of repair, maintenance or for the fitting of a sound post or other device. One example of such a device is called a snake, which maintains proper humidity within the instrument. Internal features. Internally, the cello has two important features: a bass bar, which is glued to the underside of the bottom of the instrument, and a round wooden sound post (also called a sound peg), which is sandwiched between the top and bottom.
The bass bar serves to support the backbone of the cello, and contributes to the cello's rigidity. The sound post, meanwhile, is responsible for conducting and absorbing sound. Like the bridge, the sound post is not glued, but is kept in place by the tensions of the bridge and strings.Glue.
