Thumb Position School for Cello


In stock

Thumb Position School for the Cello is a method for learning the notes and spaces in cello thumb position.

Focusing on the main position of “thumb on mid-string harmonic”, the book includes exercises and short pieces that teach the finger patterns in a number of different keys, high and low second finger, stretching in thumb position, reading both tenor and treble clef, and shifting with the thumb.

This book works well alongside Thumb Position for the Cello, Book One, which focuses on shifting in and out of thumb position. An excellent introduction to cello thumb position, this book is a friendly and accessible method for students of all ages. If you are interested in learning to read treble clef on its own, check out Treble Clef for the Cello.
