A first book of easy pieces for Cello by Kathy and David Blackwell. A great source of early pieces for those still finding their feet with this demanding instrument. Fun to play and easy to learn, this set of melodies will help to develop coordination and confidence in your playing.
Very easy to use and enjoyable music for learning, would recommend. Anonymous

A superb book and CD. The book takes you very gently through the very basics. Although designed for children, the easy layout and pictures were fun for me as an adult learner.
Playing along with the CD makes even the most screeching cello playing sound vaguely musical and enabled me to feel I was making music right from the first day. The tunes are from a whole range of styles, including some funky jazz and slow classical.
It takes you through some easy scales too which is useful for learning what each note should sound like. Also includes tracks which you can tune your cello against, so you don't need to buy extra tuning equipment. Highly recommended

I would highly recommend this book which my daughter uses The CD backing track helps to give pace & context to the notes played by the cello. The book is 'friendly', well presented & very easy to use and follow. Anonymous
