Note reading is introduced from the beginning, and accidentals are explained in the easiest way in the first volume of the Sassmannshaus Cello Method. By the end of the first book, many English children's songs using all fingers have been played and note values from whole to eighth notes have been introduced. Even the easiest exercises are underlaid with text so that melodies can be perceived as a whole.
