CelloBello Values Statement

CelloBello is dedicated to the universal dissemination of musical expertise and artistic inspiration. We are building a global cello community free from biases against race, ethnicity, religion, gender identity, and sexual orientation by minimizing barriers of language, geographic location, socioeconomic status, or ability level. We celebrate the field’s diverse artistic heritage, honoring both its traditions and innovations. CelloBello encourages other cellists to pay forward the rich legacy of cello pedagogy and musical insight as it contributes to the continuing evolution of the art form.

CelloBello strives to empower musicians who have long been marginalized, disenfranchised, or underrepresented in classical music. As such, we are committed to making our resources accessible to all who desire them. We believe that everyone should have access to high-quality music education, and through this universality of access we work to remove elitism from the world of classical music. As the majority of our resources are accessed through the internet, we support all efforts to create digital equity and inclusion throughout the world.

CelloBello believes that artists and arts organizations are powerful agents for positive societal change. We defend and promote freedom of all artistic and cultural expression. We aim to use our musical platform in support of the well-being of the planet. We endeavor to increase societal awareness and encourage activism among our users with the hope that each will advocate for their own causes and concerns.

CelloBello exists as an ecosystem and experiment in the transformative power of generosity and collaboration. The CelloBello community has benefited immensely from the magnificent support of many. We extend our gratitude to the innumerable artists, teachers, and volunteers who, without remuneration, continue to contribute their talents and expertise to the CelloBello mission. The vision of CelloBello could not be sustained without extraordinary acts of financial philanthropy. We are indebted to all our benefactors who make these resources and this global community possible.
