  • June 19, 2008 "Essential" is the correct word!

    This is a phenomenal book for cello students engaged in private lessons, covering scales in several octaves with a rhythm section for variety in practicing. A must for every cellist's music library, whether a beginner just starting out or a practiced instrumentalist looking to brush up on the basics...
