Suzuki Cello School Cello Part, Volume 2 (Revised)
The Suzuki Method may be one of the most well-known and widely used methods for young, string player education.
In Volume 2, there are more great pieces to help develop lots of solid, basic cello technique. Starts in C Major and goes back through G and D Major and adds a couple of pieces in G Minor. My personal favorite is "The Moon Over the Ruined Castle," so don't skip it just because it's called a Tonalization! Goes up through the third position, but mainly stays in first and upper second positions.
- Long, Long Ago (T. H. Bayly)
- May Time, Komm Lieber Mai (Longing for Spring) from Sehnsucht nach dem Frühlinge, K. 96 (W. A. Mozart)
- Minuet No. 1, Minuett III from Suite in G Minor for Klavier, BWV 822 (J. S. Bach)
- Minuet No. 3, Minuet in C, BWV Anh. II (J. S. Bach)
- Chorus from Judas Maccabaeus (G. F. Handel)
- Hunters' Chorus from 3rd Act of the opera Der Freischutz (C. M. von Weber)
- Musette in G, Gavotte II or the Musette from English Suite III in G Minor for Klavier, BWV 808 (J. S. Bach)
- March in G (J. S. Bach)
- Theme from Witches' Dance (N. Paganini)
- Tonalization: The Moon over the Ruined Castle (R. Taki)
- The Two Grenadiers, Die Beiden Grenadier, Op. 49, No. 1 for Voice and Piano (R. Schumann)
- Gavotte (F. J. Gossec)
- Bourrée from Sonata in F Major for Oboe and Basso Continuo, HHA IV/18, No. 8-EZ (G. F. Handel).
You'll definitely want to be supplementing with Rick Mooney's Position Pieces by the time you are in Volume 2. I start in Book 1, but I'm a little intense. :)
