Ready to Learn Fifth Position?

Fifth Position for the Cello teaches you the notes and spaces in this important cello position.

Using short exercises and position pieces that work together to teach a single note or skill, this book works to teach cello fifth position technique in an organized and efficient way.

Starting with teaching closed fifth position, the book continues with extensions and the various finger groupings that are played in fifth position.

The cello exercises and position pieces focus on both shifting and playing across strings in fifth position.

This book could be studied along with The Shifting Book for Cello, Part One, and Finger Exercises for the Cello, Book Three, both of which have study material in fifth position.
