Bowing Studies on Arpeggios for the Cello, Book One- PDF Download
Ready to improve your cello bowing technique?
Bowing Studies on Arpeggios uses simple arpeggios across strings and in first through fourth position to work on bowing, with an emphasis on string crossing.
Because the left hand reaches across strings (similar to double stops), the book also helps build left hand strength.
The bow exercises work on improving precision and control and use techniques such as spiccato, staccato, sautille, and ricochet.
How to use this book: Practice one page a day, after scales and other warm-ups, as part of your technique regime.
Who this book can help: Intermediate and advanced cellists who want better bow control, tone, and technique.
Note: this is a PDF download of the book; not a print book. This book can be saved to your computer and printed.
