Janice Tucker Rhoda's phenomenally successful series, The ABCs of Cello, owes much of its success to the wonderful original material and to the sensitive arrangements of classical, folk, fiddle and other popular melodies. After many years of teaching children and adults the author has developed a simple and enjoyable approach for studying the Cello. The ABCs of Cello for the Absolute Beginner, Book 1 contains 29 Melodies, Finger Graphs, Warm-ups, Scales, Easy Duets, a worksheet for note-recognition, a glossary and practice chart.

The special CD consists of three components: 29 performance pieces of cello with piano accompaniments, piano accompaniment tracks by themselves for play-along, and a printable pdf file of the piano accompaniments. Rob Bethel is a critically acclaimed classical and improvisational cellist who plays The ABCs of Cello Book 1 CD with passion, sensitivity and gusto!

Each book in the cello series has its own piano accompaniment book to help facilitate practice and recital performance. Beginning cellists learn to play better in tune while playing along with piano. They are expertly arranged by composers Dr. David Cleary and Dan Fox.

PLEASE NOTE: The ABCs of Cello Easy Piano Accompaniment for Book 1 (ABC14) is now on the CD enclosed in ABCs of Cello Book 1. You may print the accompaniments yourself!

The ABCs of Cello books will help prepare you to play duets, string quartets, and in your local community orchestra's cello section! Add The ABCs of String Orchestra Cello Part for additional reinforcement!
