Mooney Double Stops for Cello
The playing of double stops can help cellists develop intonation and ear training. It is easier to hear pitches against one another than in isolation. Good hand exercises, familiar tunes, make this another great learning tool.

Mooney Position Pieces for Cello Book 1
Learning fingerboard geography is critical so the student knows what notes are available on all strings when shifting positions. This book is excellent for positions 1 through 4. Economy of movement in the left hand is more easily achieved when you realize and recognize notes, intervals, half steps and alternate places to play them. Highly recommended by Cellos 2 Go. Sound fundamentals promote ability to think through sensible fingerings when not provided.
