In my opinion "The Art of Cello Playing" it is based on long experience in successful cello instruction. Although I am a new cello player, I have played other string instruments in the past. The teaching is sequenced in a way that builds on skills step by step in a logical way. No method is , of course, ideal for every student or teacher. For instance other methods cover forward extensions before backward extensions and 2nd and 3rd position before 4th position. There appears to be both aural and physiological development reasons for the sequencing followed by Mr. Potter.

On the suggestion side, a CD or download with the examples and accompaniment would be helpful.

I am enjoying reading this book and the exercises it has in it are very helpful to back up the techniques discussed.

I am not a good enough cello player to review this book, so I will simply say that it is considered one of the classics and essential to any library.
I would recommend going to staples or any other place that provides the service and having it ring bound so it will stay on the stand better.

I purchased this book for my son to practice over the Summer. The book has some pictures showing the positions, and explains every little thing about cello. Perfect book for the beginner who just started, but for him, he can use from only last 1/3 part of the book as he's done the other part in 6th and 7th grades. Where he starts will be the half position, which starts at 2/3 of the book. Anyway, this is a great comprehensive beginner book!
