Position Pieces for Cello Book 1

Position Pieces for Cello Book 1

String Educator Price: $10.99

Position Pieces for Cello is designed to give students a logical and fun way to learn their way around the fingerboard. Each hand position is introduced with exercises called "Target Practice," "Geography Quiz," and "Names and Numbers." Following these exercises are tuneful cello duets which have been specifically composed to require students to play in that hand position. In this way, students gain a thorough knowledge of how to find the hand positions and, once there, which notes are possible to play. Using these pieces (with names like "I Was a Teenage Monster," "The Irish Tenor," and "I've Got the Blues, Baby"), position study on the cello has never been so much fun!

Note Reading for Violin

Note Reading for Violin

String Educator Price: $17.99

This book will make the Suzuki parent's task much easier as it will provide a reference when a parent does not know how to teach new pieces. The teacher's job will be easier too because it will no longer be necessary to explain to the parent the relationship between notes and violin fingerings. This book is well-illustrated so that mothers and advanced children can easily understand by reading and looking at the pictures. Dr. Suzuki explains, step-by-step from open strings to placing fingers, what happens to the fingers when there are sharps, flats, and naturals on the page. He explains rhythms and how to read the higher positions. When the child is young, a parent can point to the illustrations and explain easily. There are many nice pieces for reading practice towards the end of the book.
