  • Violoncello Duets for Beginners, Volume 1 (2 cellos)

    Edited by Pejtsik. Although these pieces can be played in half and first position, you have more fingering options if you know more positions. Despite “easy” notes, there are metric, rhythmic and counting challenges. You need to know your fingerboard geography because very few fingerings are provided. Both cello parts are of similar difficulty.

  • Violoncello Duets for Beginners, Volume 2 (2 cellos)

    Edited by Pejtsik.  This is not what we would consider “for beginners.”  Considering Book 1 did not go above a D in 1st position, one doesn’t expect Book 2 to start off with tenor clef.  Pieces are not arranged by difficulty, so you will find easier pieces that stay in bass clef, no higher than 4th position, with fingerings provided. Cello I and II parts vary in difficulty in this volume, so an advanced cellist can play with a less accomplished partner. Like the earlier volume, even if you’re in familiar territory with notes, the rhythms are challenging.

    J.S. Bach – Canon cancrizans, Inventio in re minore; Beethoven – Marcia alla turca, Contredanse; Dotzauer – Andante con variazioni; Fiore – Trattenimento; Gabrielli – Balletto e Giga; Handel – Air; Haydn – Andante; Hook – Rondo; Kummer – Tema con variazioni; Mehul – Allegretto; Mozart – Divertimento; Offenbach – Two Duos; Pleyel – Duo; Reger – Canon im alten Styl; Stiastny – Fuga; Telemann – Sonata or Canon; Vivaldi – Adagio e Allegro

  • Violoncello Music for Beginners Vol. 1

    Edited by Pejtsik, this collection is wonderful for students looking for music that stays within first position but offers a variety of rhythms. This book does not have any suggested fingerings which (with any luck) they don’t need!  Playing “by number” isn’t a habit one wants to get into, so this is a book that challenges you in a familiar range of notes.

  • Violoncello Music for Beginners Vol. 2

    Volume 2 includes 33 pieces, the majority of which have one or two sharps/flats, and a few with three.  The rhythms are in an easier zone with fewer 16th notes and dotted rhythms.  While most pieces can be played in 1st position, having fluency through 4th position allows for more fingering options.  There are no fingerings provided in this volume, so it’s a good chance to test your own fingerboard geography (shout-out to Rick Mooney’s Position Pieces Book 1).   Probably a good range of pieces for Suzuki 2-ish players who want to play a greater variety of music with that skill set.

  • Violoncello Music for Beginners Vol. 3

    This collection includes 43 short pieces, none of which have more than 3 sharps or 3 flats.  The range of notes includes through 4th position to the harmonic.  Time signatures and tempi vary, there are chords and doublestops, some ornamentation … It is what I call “lateral music” when you feel fluent in a range of notes but approach them differently in each work.  People who play a method book (Suzuki)  are surprised to see how many works they can’t play easily though they’d learned to play well the pieces in a given volume.  This is not what many people would consider beginner material.  Helpful fingerings are provided in this volume.
