Cello Stretching: Extended First Position
Cello Stretching: Extended First Position teaches you how to reach beyond first position to play flats and sharps.
Starting with extending to 1st finger flats and finishing with extending forward to reach 4th finger sharps, this book covers all of the stretching you could ever need.
Cello extensions are best studied over a period of time so that the hand can gradually get used to reaching without tension. Cello Stretching provides ample practice materialfor continued work.
Teachers can use this as a supplemental book to other methods and repertoire.
This book can be studied along with Playing in Keys for Cello, Book One, which focuses on the keys that use these extensions.
