If you sincerely want to improve as a bassist, or if you want to get the most out of your practice time but don’t know how, then this is the book for you.

    Developing Virtuosity Bk 1   Vc/CD Rom
    Features:

    "Developing Virtuosity, Book 1" begins with open strings and basic notation, rhythms, and bowing skills. New notes, notation, and bowing skills are added in logical progression, reinforcing both right- and left-hand technique and developing the cognition for string performance. This book introduces students to: 1) the basic major and minor tetrachords on all four strings; 2) essential rhythmic notation from whole notes through eighth-note patterns; 3) left-hand techniques such as easily played double stops, left-hand pizzicato, and differentiating whole and half steps; and 4) bowing techniques, beginning with the detaché bow stroke and continuing with staccato, slurs, producing dynamics with the bow, lifting the bow, arco-to-pizzicato technique, and hooked and louré bow strokes.

Innovative ensemble parts allow each instrument to accompany the others in mixed instrumentation, from duos up to string orchestra. Kick-offs can be used to transition to the new key if all strings are playing together.

    Position Pieces For Cello   Vc
    Features:

    Position Pieces for Cello is designed to give students a logical and fun way to learn their way around the fingerboard. Each hand position is introduced with exercises called "Target Practice," "Geography Quiz," and "Names and Numbers." Following these exercises are tuneful cello duets which have been specifically composed to require students to play in that hand position. In this way, students gain a thorough knowledge of how to find the hand positions and, once there, which notes are possible to play. Using these pieces (with names like "I Was a Teenage Monster," "The Irish Tenor," and "I've Got the Blues, Baby"), position study on the cello has never been so much fun!

    Position Pieces For Cello Bk 2   Vc
    Features:

    Position Pieces for Cello, Book 2 fills the pedagogical gap between the first book of Position Pieces and the two Thumb Position for Cello books in that it covers the fifth, sixth, and seventh positions.

As with Mr. Mooney's other books, this is accomplished in an enjoyable and creative manner through the use of cello duets. With titles like "Surfing Cellos," "Jumping Flea," and "The Happy Certified Public Accountant," these pieces are really fun for students to play! This book will prove to be an indispensable tool for intermediate level cello students.
