Thumb Position For Cello

Thumb Position For Cello edited by Aaron Stang. For cello. String - (Suzuki) Supplementary; Suzuki. Summy-Birchard supplementary instruments (Cello). Instructional and Method. Instructional book. 72 pages. Published by Summy-Birchard Inc (AP.0763).

ISBN 0874877636. Instructional and Method. 9x12 inches.

As with the other books in his "...for Cello" series, Rick Mooney has made the learning of a specific technique easier and more enjoyable than ever before. The pieces in these books include easy classical music (e.g. from the "Anna Magdalena Notebook" and Tschaikowsky's "Album for the Young") as well as folk songs, fiddle tunes and several pieces by Mr. Mooney specially composed to address specific technical points. All of the pieces have been arranged as duets, with a second cello part for the teacher (or other students in a group class) to play. As a result, students are readily able to hear when they are playing accurately. "Thumb Position for Cello" comes in two volumes. Book 1 includes only the four basic fingering patterns used in thumb posi- tion. This is the only book available which gives the student so much opportunity for repetition and mastery of basic thumb position technique. Book 2 (available in 1999) includes more advanced thumb position techniques including chromatic finger patterns, extending the hand, use of fourth finger, moving the thumb across as well as up and down the string, and getting into and out of thumb position. These well-organized, enjoyable books will be a welcome addition to the libraries of all teachers and students of the cello.

  • May 22, 2012 Great intro to thumb position

    I've been teaching cello for over 30 years and this is the simplest, most straightforward and most accessible intro to thumb position I've seen. I use it for all my students to introduce thumb position. The entire book has thumb on the octave harmonics on the A and...

    D strings , and each chapter uses one position for all the songs. Each chapter starts with exercises to locate the position, and then the same three songs (in the appropriate key for the position), so it's easy to hear if the song is right, because the student already knows it. Highly recommended.

  • April 02, 2009 Was kind of disappointed

    I am largely self-taught and was looking for a book to help me with thumb position. This title does not really explain the mechanics, only provides one picture for each position and then has short songs to practice. The book encourages the student to work with their teacher, but...

    if you don't have one, this book will not help much.

  • March 31, 2008 thumb position CAN be fun.

    My 11 year old daughter loves this book. Initially resistant to thumb position, she now likes to practice it. Well written/good variety.
