Juilliard’s String Department is the largest department within the Music Division, representing about one-third of its total student enrollment. At the heart of the department is a distinguished faculty that includes internationally acclaimed soloists, chamber and orchestral musicians, and leading pedagogues, as well as the world-renowned Juilliard String Quartet.
As a cellist, you will also enjoy ample opportunities to perform in solo recital, with chamber ensembles, and as concerto soloists with orchestra.
The study of music is a time-honored tradition of art passed from seasoned artist to student. At Juilliard you will learn to interpret music of any period — to nurture it, refine it, give it life, and make it your own. Complementing your work with your primary teacher will be collaborative experiences in chamber music and large ensembles, not only with other musicians, but also with the school’s talented dancers and actors. And you will share your art with enthusiastic audiences at Juilliard, at other renowned venues in New York City and around the world.
