First Position Scale Studies for the Cello
teaches the easiest scales on the cello.

The book presents easy cello scale exercises and bowings on the C, G, D, A, F, B-flat, and E-flat major scales. Useful as an introductory book for scales, this book is also helpful with building tone and exploring extended first position.

Each scale is followed by four pages of variations, with bowings and rhythms to help improve your technique. The book begins with the C major scale and teaches basic slur patterns and easy rhythms. After exercises on the G and D scales, the book progresses to other keys, grouped by finger patterns.

Rhythms are taught in 3/4, 4/4, and 6/8 timing. The book ends with slow scale exercises for vibrato work and eighth-note studies for speed.

First Position Scales works well with Finger Exercises for the Cello, Book One, and Playing the Cello, Book One.
