CelloBello, the world's leading resource on all things cello, is building on its successful CelloChat program to dedicate a series of CelloChat sessions to the needs and interests of the adult learning community.

These free live chats will put the CelloBello community member directly in contact with cellists and pedagogues who are specialists in working with adult, non-professional cellists. These informal conversations focus on a specific topic, technique, repertoire, style or other career aspect, followed by a question-and-answer session with those who attend live.

CelloChats are broadcast live on Facebook Live and YouTube Live, and since the inception of CelloChat, more than 200 CelloChats have been produced, and have collectively received over 500,000 views.

"In our conversations with adult learners over the past year, who make up nearly 40% of CelloBello users, we are thrilled to respond to their feedback and tailor some of our content to their specific interests. While there are many different reasons and motivations for adults to learn the cello, we find adult learners using CelloBello to be inspired players who cherish community, and who bring to their playing a rich set of life experiences," said Robert Rund, Executive Director of CelloBello. "While we will of course continue our general CelloChats throughout the year, it will be wonderful to take a deep dive into issues facing the adult, non-professional cellist," Rund added.

The Adult Learner Series of CelloChat will include four CelloChats in 2023:
