Practising with Robert Cohen – How to create time efficient, productive and enjoyable practice

‘Cohen is one of the few musicians, whose every tone speaks to people.

During 35 years of his distinguished international career, Robert Cohen (2) has been hailed as one of the foremost cellists of our time. As well as being invited to perform concertos worldwide, he has made many recordings and is an inspiring conductor. In January 2012, Cohen became Cellist of the legendary Fine Arts Quartet. His passionate views on the art of learning, performing and communicating music have been widely published and in 2010 he became a Professor at the Royal Academy of Music, where he gives lectures on practising, sound, memory, performance anxieties and concentration.
