The Liversedge Cello Studio is open to cellists of all ages and abilities along with string chamber ensembles. Except in the case of very young children, students receive one sixty-minute lesson / week. Lessons will typically be held in the student’s home and parents are strongly encouraged to be present throughout the lesson in order to assist with practice throughout the week. Beginning students will work out of the Suzuki Method books. More advanced students will begin exploring the canon of major cello works with an emphasis on using technique as a vehicle for musical expression.
Cellist Matthew Liversedge is from Nashville, TN and has been teaching students ages 6 to 60 since 2016. He earned a degree in cello performance studying under Dr. Felix Wang at Vanderbilt University. During his time there, Matthew performed in France at Festival d’Aix and in ensemble at the Aspen Music Festival and School. Additionally, he privately studied pedagogy with Kirsten Cassel-Greer, period performance with Allison Nyquist, and theory with Marianne Ploger. Performance highlights included seven solo recitals, master classes for Johannes Moser and Christian Pierre la Marca, and collaboration with Matthew Hunter of the Berlin Philharmonic. Prior to attending Vanderbilt, Matthew was a soloist on NPR’s From the Top. As the recipient of the Michael C. Kamen Solo Award, Matthew plays on a cello by Sally Mulliken.
