Cello method

A leading progressive method for beginners, in three volumes, with over 25,000 copies distributed.

These volumes offer an effective pedagogical approach specially adapted to beginners: they allow a simultaneous approach for learning to play the cello and reading a musical score.
To facilitate learning, the approach is based on using traditional French songs to which are progressively integrated some authored pieces.
The method is very well illustrated by watercolors from Jean-Noel Rochut.
