Yo-Yo Ma uses the power of Twitter to answer some common questions about playing cello. Would Yo-Yo Ma ever collaborate with a rapper? Why is it that in every movie the cellist plays Bach's Cello Suite No. 1? Why are cellos so expensive? Can you hurt you arm playing the cello? Yo-Yo answers all these questions and much, much more.

Yo-Yo Ma: Beginner’s Mind is available exclusively on Audible and is free to all US listeners. Listen here: www.audible.com/pd/Beginners-Mind-Audiobook/B08ZYXLTYG

I would ask him what his thoughts are on the viola da gamba. Which is the baroque relative of the cello.

This was so great, I love this man. At 3:49 i’ve always told my students “when the music causes you to move that’s called expression; when YOU move... that’s being a poser”. 😊😊😊😊😊

"Why do cellists move their heads around?" I dunno, why do lead guitarists roll around on stage? Getting into it I suppose, only reason I don't move my head much playing violin is because I am supporting the violin under my chin, playing any other instruments I find myself moving my head, and I will tap my foot or sway or make faces while playing too. It just happens when you are really into it

An extraordinary person. Also, to be fair, the questioner towards the end could've just left it at "How do cellists play the 6th #Bach #cello suite", and we would've sympathized.

Man, I know this man is a legend--I was blessed to get to hear him perform with the CSO back in the day. But when he went to tune his cello with the pegs near the top of the instrument--I instantly flinched, because of it getting drilled into my brain as a kid "DON'T touch those! You can snap a string that way!!" I know that's not gonna happen in a professionally-edited video of a professional cellist. It's just a reflex I haven't lost even after 15+ years.

The suite 6 is definitely very special. To me represents the inexistence of death. On the Suite 1: Well, we also have to appreciate it, i had also thought of it as being flowing, and made the mistake a couple times of thinking it's overplayed... Also great music. Right arm technique: Also very important what the master says... Know your body, lesion is so harming to musicians...
