Cello & Piano
Dr. Charles Asch teaches successful cellists throughout the Twin Cities, including members of Greater Twin Cities Youth Orchestra and the University of Minnesota Campus Orchestras. He received his Master of Music degree from Juilliard, and completed his Doctor of Musical Arts degree at University of Minnesota in 2017. Dr. Asch focuses on the initial setup of beginners on cello, as well as on audition preparation for intermediate-advanced students. The initial setup of a beginner is the most important aspect of cello playing. A good start leads to good form, tone, and rhythmic/tonal accuracy. For intermediate-advanced students looking to be successful in their orchestras and chamber ensembles, accurate preparation of the music is essential. Dr. Asch performs with chamber music ensembles and orchestras throughout the Twin Cities, and his playing has been included in several movie soundtracks and musical albums.
Dr. Asch teaches at Mount Calvary Academy of Music on Mondays and Thursdays, with new students accepted for both Summer 2018 and Fall 2018.
