Despite the fact that as a late starter on the cello with a good numbers of lessons from good teachers I find this book greatly inspiring. Encouraged by Kato Havas´s writing I have set up a new practicing regime, following her advice as to how to practice. She answers many questions of the keen pupil such as "how can I learn to sight-read?" or "how do I overcome my insecurity or fear of performing?" and she does it not theoretically but gives meaningful suggestions, the kind of suggestions you miss in most study books.
