Cello Lessons

Empowering the minds and bodies of the future generations of musicians.


Private Study

Whether you are preparing for an orchestral audition, learning a concerto for a competition, or seeking out technique-intensive methodology to incorporate into your practice, Jeremy offers something for cellists of all calibers.

Cello Technique Resources

Crosmer's technique exercises are a hybrid of methodologies from his study at the University of Michigan with Richard Aaron and Anthony Elliott, and his teacher in Arkansas, Stephen Feldman. Developing a mastery of the cello requires a consistent focus on details, isolating each aspect of cello playing and working on it independently before eventually recombining it back with the whole.

Crosmer has developed numerous exercises for studying cello, including Left Hand technique, bow technique, and a book of scales and arpeggios that is ordered by difficulty rather than the Circle of Fifths. Head on over to the Resources page, where you can also find bowings and fingerings for the first three Bach Suites.
