This collection of sixteen original, imaginative studies for solo cello has been specially designed for young players of elementary level (Grades 1-3). Throughout the book, progressive technical points go hand-in-hand with musical development. The studies cover a variety of keys, modes, rhythmic patterns and styles, including jazz, while also encouraging self-expression. The descriptive titles are intended to help the cellist play in a style appropriate to each study. Teachers and pupils will find this invaluable yet lighthearted collection both enjoyable and stimulating.
