Dounis 101

An Invitation from Byron Duckwall - founder of Master the Cello

"Learn how to play cello in a natural way. The secret of how to do this is fully revealed on this website, but essentially, it is using your native instincts instead of conditioned reflexes. All of the techniques, instruction, methods and remedies found on this website are for this purpose. It is my hope that you too can learn how to play cello naturally. In other words, with a natural vibrato and a bow arm which feels as expressive and weightless as a conductor’s baton. This is the Zen of the cello. The ‘easy way.’ This is possible by re-awakening the instincts you used intuitively as a child, but have been forgotten or become dormant. This is the revolutionary Dounis Method.”
