Carey Beth Hockett, Suzuki teacher extraordinaire will be teaching cello group classes on February 25. Any one is observe to attend this delightful afternoon of masterful group teaching.
Many of the cellists will be participating in the second WSSTE Cello Festival on March 9. Our special guest adjudicator will be Jean Hatmaker, who is a local cellist, founding member of the Kontras Quartet, faculty member of Elmhurst College and former student at WSSTE. Each student will prepare 1-3 solo pieces (depending on their level) with the help of their teacher and Melissa Zindel. On the day of the Festival, Ms. Hatmaker will select which piece she wishes to hear and give the students written feedback. We are very excited to give our students this wonderful opportunity to receive input from a local artist.
