Make Your Practice Work for You!

Broken Thirds (One String) for the Cello, Book One gives you a huge variety of studies and variations on broken thirds up a single string.

With exercises on each of the four strings, you can improve on your cello shifting technique and agility in first through ninth positions.

Broken thirds have long been a staple of cello study, and in this book they are explored in a way that is most relevant to the demands of modern cello playing.

How to use this book: Add one page to your cello practice each day. Start slowly and repeat any missed shifts. Keep your left hand thumb relaxed so you can shift fluidly.

If you are looking for traditional broken thirds across strings, see The Two Octaves Book for Cello.

This book could be studied along with Workouts for the Intermediate Cellist and could be followed by Broken Thirds (One String) for the Cello, Book Two.
