"Some move the bow as it is customary on the viola da gamba, that is, instead of a down-stroke from left to right for the principal notes, they make an up-stroke from right to left, beginning from the tip of the bow."

J. J. Quantz about cellists, Berlin, 1752

the author

My name is Marianne Dumas. My aim as an artist is to combine knowledge and development of tradition. 
Eclectic cellist, my playing is forged from rich musical experiences in France, USA, Latino America, Spain, and Germany.
I am a strong advocate of the French school of the violoncello, following the heritage of the Duport Brothers, and lover of the sound of the 1950s
. My research project about the origins of the violoncello was part of my Cello Biomechanics research and cello method project.
Based in Berlin and in the Bassin d'Arcachon in France, teaching cello is part of my passion for music, you can visit my teaching website, The Cello Practice Helper, read about my method and/or book a class online.
