Tricks to Tunes Cello Book by Ackerman
Cello method book for group tuition for primary or lower secondary school age.
A cello method book for group tuition, designed for the primary or lower secondary school age group. Also suitable for individual use.
The children learn 'tricks' for their fingers or bows, which are fun when done in a group. Reading skills are developed at the same time.
Book 1 progresses in steps from a single open string to the scale of D major. One divergence from the usual approach is that the note G is taught after E but before F#. This better develops the left hand position, especially for cellists.
