Position Pieces for Cello, book 1; Mooney (Sum)

A logical and fun way to learn to get around the fingerboard. Hand positions are introduced with exercises such as "Target Practice," or "Geography Quiz." Next comes tuneful cello duets specifically composed to use that hand position. With titles like "I Was a Teenage Monster," position study on the cello has never been so much fun!
