ExcellentReviewed in the United Kingdom on 26 June 2011
As a music teacher (but not of cello!) I really appreciate how well the book has been thought through with introductory exercises for each new position followed by attractive arrangements and compositions, all with an optional accompaniment for a second (teacher-level) cellist. This is not a beginners book and for secondary pupils and adults rather than (most) youngsters; you would need to be pretty confident in hitting the first position notes accurately and also comfortable with your bowing to enable you to concentrate on learning the higher positions. It's challenging; I'm having to spend quite a lot of time on some of the pieces to do them justice but my playing improves in direct proportion to how much I use this book.

Helpful exercisesReviewed in the United Kingdom on 7 September 2019
Very happy with this position book. The exercises in it are very helpful to get my head around which finger to use for which note in which position, which forms an important base to play more advanced pieces in tune.
Helps to improve your playingReviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 April 2021
This book has been very useful to brush up on my position work and to become more secure in my positioning and that improves my confidence. It starts simple and then you work your way up.
Good bookReviewed in the United Kingdom on 2 March 2021
Good book with simple melodies which require focus on good fingering. Must be able to play in first position with ease before trying. It would be nice if it had a few more melodies per position.
Fun tunes which are challengingReviewed in the United Kingdom on 10 September 2017
Teaching myself the cello and love this book. Fun tunes which are challenging (and sound good). It has helped me move around with confidence and out of the beginner positions :)
