Solos for Young Cellists is an eight-volume series of music compilations with companion CDs. The series ranges from elementary to advanced levels and represents a truly exciting variety of musical genres and techniques. This collection of wonderful music offers young cellists the opportunity to work in various positions, techniques, meters, keys, and musical styles. Many of the works have long been recognized as stepping stones to the major instrumental repertoire, while others are newly published pieces and original compositions, providing an exciting and diverse choice of study. The collection will become a valuable resource for teachers and students of all ages and levels. The piano track recorded on the second half of each CD gives the cellist the chance to practice performing with accompaniments.

  • March 04, 2018 Excellent supplemental book

    Not a beginner book; requires shifting, harmonics. I wish the Violin and Cello books had the same pieces and could be played together.

    My Daughter was looking for something to play that was not in the Suzuki literature. The Gondola Song was perfect for an upcoming recital and the Cd is lovely!

  • July 05, 2006 Excellent addition to Suzuki material

    My son is 8 and received this book on completing his Suzuki book 3. He was thrilled to have this music and was able to play all the pieces after enthusiastic practising for a week. The music is varied and has been a welcome additon to Suzuki cello book 4...

    and he is demanding to have the second volume as soon as possible.
