Cello International Travel Academy was founded by Russian cellist and conductor Denis Shapovalov in 2014. Denis travels much performing in different cities and countries, and almost everywhere after the concerts cellists from local orchestras, high-schools and colleges ask Denis for masterclasses.  So, the idea of traveling teacher gave birth to the creation of the Cello International Travel Academy.

The First edition of  the Cello International Travel Academy was held in Montenegro. Since that it was held in Armenia, Georgia, Lithuania, Italy, Macao, Colombia, Bolivia and many Russian cities. The next – can happen in any other beautiful and interesting place. We are happy to get your ideas where to fix the next editions.
