How the student learns the left hand
Here's a quote from the book
"The reason you use the fingers of your Left Hand is to change the sounds that your cello makes. When you can change the sounds, you can play many different cello songs.
You must learn to play the simple songs first. Soon, you will find that you will be able to play the harder songs with the very fast notes. To be good, your Left Hand will have to be placed in a very special way, so you can reach the notes easily."
I've heard that learning to play an instrument gives children a tremendous advantage with their reading skills, and so they do much better in school. Is this true?
Yes. Tests have shown, Students who play the Cello find they do better in school academics, gain self-esteem and leadership qualities.
I don't know anything about the cello. So, how can I help my child play the right notes so that they sound correct?
Parents are given a special guide in the Appendix, simple enough even a "Tone-deaf" parent can help a child make their songs sound right! Check out Pages 95-107.
Isn't reading Music hard? How can the Student learn songs?
The Cello Book 2 uses a very SIMPLE Fingering System, so the student can concentrate on the basics of using his or her fingers. With this System, songs can be played right away. And with the accompanying piano parts on the "Practice & Performance" CD's, your child will love to perform concerts for his friends.
You'll find lots of help you can really use on Page 41.
