Advanced Daily Training that Solidifies Your Thumb Position

Octave Scales for the Cello, Book One gives you daily training in advanced thumb position using double stop octaves that shift in scale patterns.

All advanced cellists can benefit from daily study of octaves. Octaves form the basis for most of the thumb position encountered in repertoire. Many high-level skills, such as artificial harmonics, double stop thirds, and double stop tenths, can only be played if you have a fluent octave technique.

Staying in shape as a cellist is an ongoing battle and exercises for cello majors and professional cellists can take precious time from a practice session. By adding just one page of Octave Scales to your daily practice, your cello technique can improve quickly and efficiently.

Based on traditional major scales, the exercises incorporate more complex variations that train your hand specifically for the difficulties you will encounter in the major concerto repertoire.
