Learn how to play cello arpeggios!
Are you ready to learn three-octave arpeggios on the cello? Do you want a better sense of fingerboard geography? Are you tired of guessing where notes in the higher positions are? This book can help!
Using a carefully planned series of exercises, this book teaches the notes and spaces in three-octave major and minor arpeggios on the cello.
Studies for three complete sets of fingerings are included, included "shifting across strings," "shifting up the A-string," and "shifting into thumb position." After practicing these exercises, your hand can have a much better grasp of where the notes are in each arpeggio and how to reach those notes consistently and precisely.
The book uses bass, tenor, and treble clefs and would be most helpful for advanced cellists. A prior or simultaneous study of three-octave scales is recommended.
How to use this book: Play 1-4 pages near the beginning of your practice, after finger exercises and scales and before other exercises and etudes.
Learn Three-Octave Arpeggios, Note by Note and Space by Space
Because this book gives you exercises for three complete sets of traditional fingerings for all of the major and minor arpeggios, the book has something for everyone!
As a bonus, the arpeggio workout by Sevick has been adapted for cello and included in the book to cover an even more comprehensive set of arpeggios.
