Fifth Position Preparatory Studies for the Cello


In stock

Timid About Starting Cello Fifth Position?

Fifth Position Preparatory Studies for the Cello gives you easy studies and corresponding short position pieces that introduce you to very basic fifth position on the cello.

Starting with the idea that fifth position is most easily accessed from fourth position, the first pages teach you to shift just a whole step away so that fifth position seems really close by.

The book then works on shifting directly to fifth position from first position, which is easier now that you know where fifth position actually is.

Useful for cellists of all ages, this book could be followed by the more complex exploration of the position in Fifth Position for the Cello (CHP198).

These cello position studies are a great introduction to playing in the higher registers!
