Open String Bow Workouts for Cello, Book One - PDF download
This book of new and exciting bowing workouts for the cello gives you 97 exercises to train your bow on open strings before you begin the rest of your practice.
Since there are no left hand notes, you can focus entirely on improving the dexterity and control of the right (bow) hand.
Useful also for students who are struggling with reading notes, this book gives cellists a tremendous resource for creating better tone.
The exercises work on on bow distribution, rests and retaking bows, slurs, triplets, dotted rhythms, double stops, string crossing and more.
Note: this is a PDF download of the book; not a print book. This book can be saved to your computer and printed.
