A Guide to Cello Facebook Groups

A Guide to Cello Facebook Groups

Later this month, cellist and Cello Museum intern, Jonathan Simmons, will give us an overview of Facebook groups for those who love and/or play the cello. He tells us:

Groups exist for teachers, students, specific countries and regions, and more. This article presents groups where members can post and interact and were chosen based on the fact that they have actively contributing members and are relatively spam-free.Whether you teach cello, study cello, or love the cello, a group exists for you!

Would you like the Cello Museum to start a Facebook group where we can all interact in addition to our page? Please let us know in the comments.
