I found this to be a really helpful cello method - very good for practising technique and a good focus on tonalisation as well. However needs to be used alongside another book as it very much throws you in at the deep end. As an adult who already plays two instruments and has my grade 5 theory it is a really useful book. I would be wary of you are a parent looking to find a book for your child, it's quite intense and you may risk putting your child off!
I am not following the suzuki method but my teacher is happy for me to use it and I found the book excellent. Plenty of useful exercises and interesting tunes for an adult beginner (unlike other books). Navigated through it nicely in one month (could already read music)
One thing that I wasn't expecting when I bought this book for my six year old son was that it would have "proper" music notation from the start. It was a little scary at first (he uses the Tetratunes book too where the music is written using letters and numbers) but as the tunes are so simple, it is a good way to familiarise young children with music notation. The exercises are good but I wonder whether it would have been worth buying the CD that accompanies this book too?
love it, lovely progressions through the pieces, nice pieces to play, really well presented. I got it because I've started to do grades as an adult beginner, and some of the pieces safe in here, but would have enjoyed it regardless.
Excellent book, however, doesnt go into the fact that suzuki should be group taught and starts off at a level requiring an understanding of wrtten music and full fluency of all strings and bowing technique
