Enrollment opens 15th of august!

Welcome to this Online Cello Academy!

What if someone told you it is not too late?

What if someone told you it is possible?

What if you could start your dream, today?

What if your playing could sky rocket?

What if you could be a great cellist?

What would happen if I taught you everything I know?

Hi My name is Ragnhild.

I take your dream seriously.

I am a professional cellist who has played cello for almost 25 years. I have a Masters degree from the Barratt Due Institute of Music in Oslo, where I studied performance for seven years. I am also a Timaniteacher, a teacher who specializes in using the body correctly while playing, as well as a mental coach. I have ten years of teaching experience and now I want to teach you everything I know, and more.

I want to give you a premium course, just like having the professional lessons you have dreamed of.

I am all about finding the shortcuts to good playing. You and me, we will not settle for "just practice more". We want to learn a way to play better, and practice less. I want to see you succeed, and still have time to do what you want in your life.

Sign up for this course and you will get me as your teacher, guide, coach, mentor and friend, right into your living room.

It takes courage to follow your dream.

What happened to your dream? The one where you wanted to play the cello so bad? You once had an idea that you could actually be great at playing the cello, but something stopped you..

Let me tell you, it is not too late!

You are good enough to pursue your dream.

What could happen? Just imagine what your life would look like in a month, a year, ten years?

It is time to respect yourself enough to go for it.

Love yourself enough to do this NOW.

Your cello awaits.

I believe it is all about practicing smarter, not more. There are only so many hours in a day, an we need to get the most out of it, while we are having fun doing it.

So what makes this course so special?

I know in my heart that becoming a good cello player is not just about practising more. In order to become the cellist you want to be, you need to have a broad knowledge about the body and mind and how it can help you on your way to greatness.

That is why in this course I include topics like:

Practice smarter, better and more efficient (not more)

Taking care of your body and how it helps you excel

Getting clarity on what holds you back from becoming the cellist you were meant to be

Tuning into the presence needed to becoming an extraordinary performer

I want to see you succeed! Lets do this!
