Thumb Position for Cello, Book 1 by Rick Mooney
You are going to love playing these pieces (not just exercises) with your student! This book will give you all of the basic thumb position techniqe and finger patterns with your thumb at the middle harmonic. There are very helpful "Daily Warm-ups" at the beginning of each section, but after that, it's pure fun! All of the tunes come with a duet part (just like other Position Pieces books). You may recognize a few of the tunes, but there are also plenty of Rick Mooney originals included. The second cello part (or teacher's part) even gets pretty exciting sometimes! You'll love the challenges and exciting tunes!
