Bissinger Sequenced Scale Studies

Students who don't understand the relevance of scales in their practice may gain an appreciation through this book. Wendy Bissinger presents scales in a workbook style for beginners or early intermediate players without a strong grasp of scales, fingerboard geography, intervals, note identification. Major and relative minor scales range only to four flats and four sharps, from one to three octaves. Unlike Klengel and others of similar ilk, this book is very user friendly, points out things a beginning or intermediate student might "do" without making the necessary mental connections. It is a presentation that makes a somewhat dry facet of music much more palatable and meaningful, helping you to become a knowledgeable and competent player. It helps push you through a routine you may not be dedicated enough to pursue on your own.

Sevcik 40 Variations Op. 3 for Cello (Battey)

The principal focus of this book is the bow arm.  While other editions pile on left-hand challenges which can make the bow arm secondary, the Battey edition presents efficient, modern fingerings which allow the focus to remain on developing articulations and character.  Other modifications take Sevcik's work for violin and make is cello-friendly.  This is the only edition we now offer.

Wu Scaling the Tenor Clef Dragon

A workbook organized by regions of the fingerboard so the student can learn tenor clef in comfortable lower positions before advancing to upper registers of the cello. Starting with 1st and 2nd position, ending with thumb position, the student moves in and out of tenor clef. This book works well with Mooney's Position Pieces, has a similar layout with workbook pages to make sure you know the names of the notes, then musical pieces to play.
