Tennessee Cello Workshop

February 26-28, 2021


All paid TCW registrations received by February 12, 2021 include a TCW T shirt. These will be mailed out after the TCW.

The first 60 paid registrants for the full TCW will be able to perform in a master class. Registrants after the first 60 will be put on a waiting list to perform in a master class. The first 30 registrants for the Suzuki workshop will, similarly, have the chance to perform in a group Suzuki master class.

NOTE: given the extraordinary situation we are in, the 2021 TCW will be entirely online this year. As such, we are able to substantially decrease the tuition for 2021, effectively giving all full three-day registrants a 70$ discount from the regular $229 registration fee. Recognizing that the Covid-19 virus is also affecting many people financially, additional scholarship support for enthusiastic cellists who need additional support to attend the 2021 TCW will be available. To apply for an additional scholarship, please send a short email detailing your need for such help to

All TCW participants will also be invited to attend online guest artist master classes held throughout the spring semester.

Late Registrations

We will try to accommodate all who wish to participate in the 2021 Tennessee Cello Workshop.

However, late registrants can't be guaranteed these opportunities.
