Personal Statement
Former principal cellist of the Orquestra Simfunica Estadual de Sao Paulo, Byron Duckwall played his first recital at the age of 8. At 18, he played the Saint Saens concerto in Chicago's Orchestra Hall. Later he played for the Metropolitan Opera Association in New York City. In his New York debut, the New York Times wrote,"a luscious sound tempered by a sensitive feeling for the music's rhythmic lilt and subtly shifting colors." After recently launching a new website, Byron began work on a new book "The Dounis Method - The Science of Expressive Technique" with famed cellist George Neikrug on the teaching methods of pedagogue Demetruis Dounis.

Byron has taught all levels for over 20 years and has a Masters Degree in Music from San Francisco State University. He is an expert in the Dounis principles of string playing having studied with Dounis's principal student George Neikrug for over 20 years.

Rate: $30 - 30 minutes, $50 - 1 hour.

Available Monday through Saturday.

Philosophy of Teaching...
It is all about re-awakening your native instincts and developing precision tools so your expression is unleashed. I want to show you how you can have a completely natural technique. Every cello question is answered by mastering the basics. My job is to tangibly help you to feel there is no limit in your ability to master the instrument.


I am considering taking lessons. Please contact me with further information. Thank you.
