Tenths for the Cello, Book One


In stock

Tenths for the Cello, Book One starts by teaching your first finger to stretch to where the third finger would be in the octave hand position.

The book uses strength and placement exercises to train the hand in shifting with tenth double stops.

Representing one of the most difficult aspects of cello technique, tenths appear in the Haydn Cello Concerto in D major and the Prokofiev Sinfonia Concertante.

This book, as well as Tenths for the Cello, Book Two, can help the advanced cellist prepare for tenths before they appear in the concert literature. The books can also be used as supplements for those already playing tenths in repertoire.
