The Pascale Music Institute (PMI) takes pride in its outstanding cello staff. We attract a high caliber of students, from beginning through advanced, and a high caliber of teachers.
We start children as young as 4 ½ on cello. Some of these students began in our KinderViolin or KinderPiano programs. Director Susan Pascale takes great care to match each student to the right instrument and the right teacher.
Pascale’s philosophy is to place children in groups right away, and offer them exciting performance opportunities. This helps motivate the child to practice.
As soon as the student can hold the instrument and has basic music-reading skills, they are invited to participate in our orchestra program. They are also encouraged to participate in our chamber music program, which includes cello quartets and a cello choir.
Our cello students also participate in frequent recitals. Our graduates eventually feed into the best high school and college orchestras, including gifted arts high schools and conservatories. They also participate in high-level cello competitions.
We offer rentals of cellos as small as 1/10th size.
