Daumenlage (Thumb Position)

This volume gradually introduces the most important thumb techniques: At first, the 4 finger patterns in thumb position are introduced systematically. The thumb first remains placed over the octave harmonics. Later, other thumb positions are added. At the end of the volume, the change from one thumb position to the other and theoctave parallels are practised. In order that the student does not miss out on the fun, each topic comes with 'tailor-made' pieces and arrangements of the author from classical, folk, rock, and jazz music. Many pieces also come with piano parts and mp3s for download. The programme is completedby many examples from the classical cello literature.

The author recommends using the comprehensive material in various ways. The order can be changed without any problems. Chapters or difficult passages can be skipped and practised later. This volume should be used over a longer period, yet can be occasionally laidaside for a while.

Ideal to complement, for example, Gabriel Koeppen's cello method or any other textbook.
