About Cassia Harvey
Cassia Harvey began her study of the cello in 1985 at the age of eight. She started teaching the cello in 1993 and published her first book of technique for the instrument in 2001. Since then, she has collaborated with violinists/violists Myanna Harvey and Judy Harvey to expand her expertise to include studies for the violin, viola, and bass. An accomplished performer and teacher, Cassia Harvey has authored over one hundred eighty study books for the classical string instruments. Her CD The Russian Cello: Rare Treasures from Imperial Russia and the Soviet Union was released in 2016.
Inspiration for her books derives from the life and work of cellists Jean-Louis Duport, Rudolf Matz, and Luigi Silva and the technical advances in training the body step by step made by dance pedagogue Agrippina Vaganova.
