Stephen De'ak (1897-1975) began to play the cello at seven years old and entered the Royal Academy of Music at the age of eleven. He studied under the famous cellist, David Popper, from 1911 to 1913, and made his concert debut in 1919 at the age of twenty-two. His "Modern Method for the Violoncello" has been used my multitudes of beginning cellists. This book covers the phases of left-hand technique and of bow technique that are necessary for a thorough facility.
