Hi, my name is Veerle Schutjens, professional cellist and cello teacher in VIeuten, Utrecht Area. Looking for a patient and motivating teacher for your child? Will it be your first cello lesson? Or do you play frequently and need some feedback and inspiration? Picking up the cello after a break and looking for a dedicated teacher? Book a trial lesson.

Cello Lessons Children

Playing the cello is a wonderful experience and the sound of the cello is close to that of the human voice.  I was enchanted by it as a child and haven't stopped playing the cello since. From a low growl to a high singing bird, the cello has so many different characters! It doesn't matter at all if your child  has no experience with music yet. In a playfull way we discover the cello and we will look for the most beautiful colors in sound!

Favourite Cello Tunes

I use teaching methods such as Sassmannshaus and Cello Time, and we frequently play duets together, the best way  to develop musical ear. With well known classical and popular tunes and melodies your child  learns to play in tune and in time. Reading music is part of the lessons. First and foremost we will focus on having fun while playing the cello!

Cello for Beginners - Teenagers - Adults

With a selection of the best study materials you wiill develop a solid technical and musical basis, being able to swiftly play duets, etudes, scales and recital pieces. Of course you'll learn to read music, if you are new to this, and some basic music theory as well.

Cello Lessons Intermediate - Advanced

Playing the cello with a relaxed posture contributes to the volume and quality of your sound. Body awareness and attention to a healthy posture, relaxed bow arm en shoulders will be part of the lessons. The lessons also may cover etudes, recital pieces, position shifts, thumb position, Bach suites, scales, presentation, bowing technique, sound, vibrato, intonation, interpretation and how to express your musical ideas.
