Double Stop Beginnings for the Cello is the first of several double stop books for beginning and intermediate cellists to be published this year. Double Stop Etudes and Double Stop Shifting are coming soon. Cellists can use these books to develop left-hand strength and accuracy. I am excited that these studies are now available!
Working on editing Thumb Position Studies for the Cello, Books 2-14. As there are 14 books in the "Thumb Studies" series, and only Book One is published, I'm finding the idea of editing the rest somewhat daunting! It's fun to continuously play through the books, though, and as long as I don't think about how large the task is, it's quite a pleasant way to spend some time before I teach.
So excited about the release of Trill Studies for the Cello, Book One, Thirds in Thumb Position for the Cello, Book Two, and Finger Exercises for the Violin, Book One! Celebrating with a free shipping sale through January 15. Upcoming books include Scale Studies for the Third Octave for the Cello, Tenths for the Cello, Book Two, and Half Position for the Cello.
