Having studied music (cello and piano) in Buenos Aires (my hometown) and having received training in Suzuki method in both instruments, I am currently completing a degree in Cello Pedagogy at the Escuela Superior de Música de Alto Rendimiento in Valencia, with Adrián van Dongen as cello teacher.
His classes are excellent both musically and pedagogically. His human warmth and sensitivity make the classes flow in a very natural and enjoyable way, as well as nurturing. His level of excellence as a cellist and pedagogue allows the classes to be very productive and efficient.
I have nothing but words of gratitude for having found Adrian in my path. Our weekly meetings enrich me enormously as a musician and as a teacher.
