Book - "Playing Less Hurt" by Janet Horvath
We snuck this book in the "comfort" portion of accessories because you might not know to look for it. It's written by a cellist who understands the mechanics of playing and teaching the cello, who's likely to get injured, how and why. Strategies to avoid such problems are followed by rehabilitative options. An important book.

Removable Highlighter Tape comes in a package of 3 colors: pink, yellow and green with its own dispenser. These tiny rolls of transparent colored tape can be placed on music to highlight repeat signs or anything you need to stand out. It can be written on, so if you have borrowed music and need to write in fingerings they can be done on the tape and then peeled off when you turn in the music. We have used this product ourselves and it works well. Tape is 12mm wide, dispenser is about 1.5" by 1" with cutting edge,
