Over Camillo C.
Every person is different and has different needs, that's why every lesson will be different and personalized. I will keep track of the work done and of the improvements in a personal folder, so that the student (and/or the parents) and myself always know exactly what we are doing and why.
Hi, my name is Camillo Cabassi, I come from Italy and I live in the Netherlands now some time.
In the very first trial lesson I’d like to know a bit about you and talk about the reasons of why you want to play cello (if any) and listen to your cello/music-dreams whether they are realistic or not. We will then set concrete steps together to reach your wishes, because I believe that everything is possible! If you don't have clear ideas, let's find out together what would you like to do! If you don’t know the instrument I will show it to you, explain how it works and let you try.
If you are interested in taking cello lessons, don’t hesitate to contact me for a trial lesson!
I can teach in English, Italian and German. Dutch will arrive soon, promise!
All the best
Who am I?
I started to play cello when I was six years old in my home town in Italy (Reggio Emilia) and twelve years later I obtained my bachelor degree in Modena’s conservatory with the highest mark possible. After two years of specialization in Florence with Natalia Gutman, playing in the Italian Youth Orchestra and World Youth Orchestra, I went to Basel (Switzerland) where I completed a master degree in cello performance with Thomas Demenga. I then moved to the Netherlands to continue my studies and right now I’m following another master at the Utrecht conservatory with Timora Rosler.
This is a short background of my studies so far and with the broad experience in cello performance and chamber music I gained experience as a teacher as well, with students of all ages and all levels.
In Italy I had the chance to teach chamber music and cello at a music school and to give cello and music lessons to kids, teenagers and adults, beginners and advanced players.
What is teaching for me?
I think teaching is an extremely important task that involves full energy from both teacher and student. My idea of teaching is based on an active participation and clear communication between the two so that there's a constant stimulus to improve and have fun. I find it important that the teacher has a clear, precise and professional way of teaching but without ever forgetting that music is a pleasure and enjoyable.
Music is most of all fun and that’s why during my studies I’ve got interested not only in classical repertoire but also in experimental, jazz and rock music that I can teach you.
