The Swan Study Book for Cello helps you learn and perfect every measure of the famous piece.
The Swan is broken down into short sections and taught through carefully graded exercises. Skills that would otherwise be difficult, such as shifts and fast scale patterns, can now be mastered.
You can be free to concentrate on artistic expression by solidifying your cello technique. The Swan Study Book gives you essential tools to be a better cellist.
This book is appropriate for intermediate level cellists who can play up through eighth position and know some tenor clef. An overview of tenor clef is included, as well as a section on producing better tone. If needed, preparatory exercises for The Swan are in the back of the book. The entire cello part to Camille Saint-Saens' The Swan is presented at the end of the book (the piano accompaniment is not included).
