    Dear Creative Cellists,

    Welcome to a new era in cello playing.  Whether you are a teacher or student, and matter what age or ability level you are I can absolutely guarantee that this system will change your playing forever!

    How do I know? 

    As the founder of America’s Creative String School,  String Project Los Angeles I’ve had over 10 years experience codifying and refining these ideas in the laboratory and working with hundreds of creative string players.  I’ve seen first the power of these concepts and I’m so excited to be starting this journey with you.
