The cello studio is led by the vibrant personality of Aldo Parisot. All cellists play in the Yale Cellos, a Grammy-nominated cello ensemble that has won accolades from publications such as the New York Times and American Record Guide.

Cello lessons focus on playing freely and without tension, so that the player and instrument act as a single unit and can explore the vast subtleties of sound, phrasing, and interpretation that the cello offers.

Chamber music is an integral part of the Yale School of Music experience. Students also play in various ensembles in the New Music New Haven concert series. The Yale Philharmonia offers important orchestral experience, with a wide variety of repertoire and frequent opportunities to work with guest conductors.
