The Adult Cello Academy presents:
the Cello Practice Club

A free, vibrant community of passionate adult cello students convening to learn and support each other in a judgment-free space.

Our community is intentionally housed outside of Facebook, on a platform called Mighty Networks where there are no ads or other distractions, so we can spend less time scrolling and more time growing as musicians.

Meet your mentor, Sonya Matoussova:

Cellist Sonya Matoussova is a versatile musician with a passion for music education. Currently based in Gatineau, QC, Sonya has built a multifaceted career as a performer, teacher, and entrepreneur. She is the creator of the Adult Cello Academy, an online, conservatory-inspired program for adult cello students. As a performer, Sonya frequently plays in the cello section of the National Arts Centre Orchestra and enjoys a multitude of chamber music collaborations in Ottawa and Montreal.

As a pedagogue, Sonya is committed to fostering community and excellence in her studio through studio classes, masterclasses, workshops, and ensemble playing. She is dedicated to creating unique performance opportunities for her students, including outreach activities and interdisciplinary collaborations. An enthusiastic chamber musician from a young age, Sonya firmly believes that ensemble playing is an essential part of musical training. She is especially fond of working with adult students, and offers a variety of programs and resources tailored specifically to adults through her online community, the Adult Cello Academy.

Sonya holds degrees from the University of Montreal (class of Yuli Turovsky) and the University of Houston (class of Vagram Saradjian). In addition to her musical endeavors, Sonya is a strong advocate for musicians’ health. A devoted yoga practitioner and Yoga Better style teacher, she is the creator of the Yoga Better for String Players online class series.
