A Quick Look at Martha Siegel

    I am a cello teacher working out of my Park Slope studio “Martha’s Music Studio”, at the United Nations International School-Queens and The Brooklyn Conservatory of Music. Every Summer I teach strings and chamber music at Camp Common Ground in Starksboro, Vermont. www.cgcvt.org  I also teach for Musika, an organization that matches up music teachers and students through the internet.

          As a performing cellist, I work in many chamber groups and direct my own, Brooklyn Brandenburgers, along with other string quartets and small ensembles.  I am principal cellist for the Brooklyn Conservatory Community Orchestra.

         From 1976 to 1997 I performed, toured and recorded with Argentine singer/songwriter Suni Paz and with Calle Strada Strasse, a trio with English concertina, mandolin and cello.  All told, I have played cello on 23 albums!  (See Discography)

      Underlying my work is a strong belief in the connection between music and community. To this end, I have produced numerous children’s concerts, chamber music concerts and music festivals in Park Slope for organizations ranging from local  schools to the Park Slope Food Coop. Since 2006, I have curated a concert series at the Old Stone House called Zeemeeuwsic.
