Right from the Start, cello and piano; Sheila Nelson (Boosey & Hawkes)

Catalog ID: CENELSRIGHT

Twenty very elementary pieces for young players written and arranged by the world's favourite string teacher Sheila Nelson. Note reading is introduced one finger at a time, building up finger pattern 0-1-23-4 (semitone space between 2nd and 3rd fingers) - the only finger pattern used in this book. A number of rhythmic bowing patterns, set out at the beginning of the book may be practised on any of the earlier tunes once they have been memorised. The rhythms are assimilated by the pupil with the aid of strongly rhythmic, easily memorable words. All the tunes can be sung to the verses provided, in order to develop a secure sense of rhythm and pitch. Pupils learn right from the start to move freely from string to string, to play with confidence and to pay close attention to pitch.
