The main aim of the course of cello, given by the teacher Fabio Guidolin at the Conservatory of
Brescia – branch of Darfo Boario Terme, is to discover and develop the aptitude for music in
the young students improving their knowledge, being at the same time respectful both of each
personality and the style and performance of the repertoire.

The method applied by Guidolin is the result of a long research that started since the eighties ,
thanks to his attitude for teaching and to important insight that foreran the theories of the
methacognitive and psychomotility applied to cello.

The teaching that the most important cellist and tutors such as E. Egano, A. Janigro, M. Flaksman,
M. Brunello, R. Filippini, F. Rossi, P. Demenga. D. Shafran, D. Geringas gave to Guidolin
helped him to develop this method, which synthesizes the teaching he received with his concert
performances with the most important international musicians.

First of all the teacher points out the student’s characteristics and then makes a personal syllabus
which is deepened with materials taken from different teaching aids, some of them unpublished, and
some pieces of repertoire.

In this way, the student can reach in a short time and in a natural way a perfect technique and
skillful expression which allows him to play very difficult pieces easily and with great sensibility.

The skills developed will enable the student to undertake the specialization which gives him the
ability to perform successfully the whole repertoire of the various professional musical fields in
Italy and abroad.
