First Position Workouts for the Cello - PDF Download
Ready to build your cello technique? These workouts will help your left-hand fingers get stronger, move faster, and play more in tune. The right hand works on detache, spiccato, staccato, string crossing, and more!
Four pages in each key help you focus on learning the finger patterns and extensions in that key. This book gives you exercises in the keys of C, G, F, D, and B-flat major.
Adding one or more pages of this book to the beginning of your practice can help your cello practice be both more efficient and more effective.
Who this book can help: Beginning cellists who know most of the notes in first position. A prior knowledge of extended first position is helpful.
How to use this book: This book could be the very first thing you play after you sit down to practice! Play 1-4 pages a day, as time allows. Play slowly at first, focusing on good form, clear tone, and good intonation.
Note: this is a PDF download of the book; not a print book. This book can be saved to your computer and printed.
