About the Program
Valdine Mishkin’s cello program is structured into four seasonal terms per year. Fall, Winter & Spring terms include weekly lessons, weekly group classes for Books 1-3, monthly performance studio classes, and recitals/public performances throughout the year. Summer lessons are by sign-up.
Dr. Mishkin’s pedagogical approach relies equally on these three elements of a well-rounded music education:
- private instruction with daily practice of each week’s lesson;
- ensemble playing and forming motivating peer relationships;
- gaining experience and confidence in performing, working towards goals.
