Octave Shifts for the Cello, Book Two


In stock

Know Where You’re Shifting!

Do you easily navigate large shifts on the cello?

Are you effortlessly gliding up the fingerboard and landing on your note with 100% accuracy?

Are you fluently reading three clefs while you shift? Do the large shifts in the Saint-Saens Concerto, the Lalo Concerto, and Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations pose you no problems?

If so, then this is not the book for you.

However, if you are human like the rest of us and large shifts are somewhat of a struggle, Octave Shifts for the Cello, Book Two can help!

Octave Shifts for the Cello, Book Two gives advanced cellists even more opportunities to study and perfect the technique of distance shifting.

While large shifts regularly appear in solo literature, it is unusual to have an opportunity to study them apart from the repertoire. This book presents octave shifting studies for the cello in a ‘theme-and-variations’ format.

After studying this book, you could continue working on large shifts with Octave Shifts for the Cello, Book Three.
