q Free Cello Etudes in Closed First Position! - C. Harvey Publications

Celebrating the release of Book 1A in the Cello Etude System!

Improve your playing with these free cello etudes in closed first position. These studies are offered here to celebrate the release of The Cello Etude System, Book 1A: Closed First Position

The Cello Etude System has been carefully structured to help students who learn at different paces. Here are some of the available and planned books in the system:

Two Learning Paths in Every Book

Here is how the Cello Etude System books work: 

  • There is a relaxed path and an accelerated path through every Cello Etude System book.
  • The relaxed path takes you through all of the etudes.
  • The accelerated path (for learners who move more quickly through music) takes you through a carefully selected segment of the book that teaches all essential skills but without as much repetition.

Here is Book 0, which has beginning cello etudes: open string etudes, studies with just open and first finger, etc., progressing to basic etudes on all four strings in first position.
