Carter Enyeart

Cello Professor Carter Enyeart graduated from the Eastman School of Music "with Distinction" and the Performer's Certificate and began teaching cello while in graduate school. His broad experience as soloist, chamber musician, orchestral player and teacher establish him as one of the leading artist/teachers in the country and give weight to his fine reputation as a renowned teacher of cello who has experience in the entire range of cello playing. His appearances as soloist, chamber musician and recording artist have been acclaimed throughout the United States and in the music capitols of Europe, South America and Asia.

As a cello teacher, Enyeart has established an enviable record of success, sending students on to such schools as Rice, Cleveland Institute, Eastman, Juilliard, Boston University, the Longy School and Boston Conservatory. His students are praised for their musicality, sound production and solid technique. He has presented recitals and master classes in music schools across the country and in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Taipei, Bangkok, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Beijing.

He was invited to the Thailand International Composition Festival in Bangkok in 2012 where he performed 'Anatman', a work he commissioned from composer Narong Prangcharoen. He was soloist and guest faculty at the Tennessee Cello Workshop in 2013 where he performed the Ott Concerto for Two Cellos and Orchestra by David Ott with cellist Wesley Baldwin. (Both of these performances can be seen on YouTube.) He returns to China in 2014 to perform' Suite for Cello and Winds by Chen Yi at both the Beijing Modern Music Festival and the Tianjin Festival, and to teach at Tianjin Conservatory.

Professor Enyeart continues to perform as soloist and chamber musician at the Conservatory of Music & Dance and in other venues in the US and abroad. Dedicated to teaching and the advancement of cello pedagogy, he has composed 2nd cello accompaniments for the use of cello studio teachers and cello students which provide the much needed harmonic structure for the student while building ensemble skills. His 'Accompaniment Ad Libitum' (Cello Accompaniments for the 40 High School of Cello Playing Studies by Popper) were published in 2011 by International Music Company (IMC #3631), and he served as editor for five forthcoming new editions of cello studies by Dotzauer (Books 1 & 2), the 15 Easy Studies by Popper, the (Preparatory) Studies, Opus 76 by Popper, and the Cossmann Studies from International Music Company.

He also composed 2nd cello accompaniments for many of the most popular cello pieces for the use of cello studio teachers and students who do not always have a piano accompanist for their students during the important learning process. These include Suzuki Volumes 5 through 10, and other works that students love to play. These 2nd cello accompaniments and Enyeart's edition of the Popper High School Studies are available at the music downloading site www.cello2accompaniments.com.
