    I like using this book with my adult beginning students who are new to cello but have played other instruments in the past. It progresses incrementally without being overwhelming and it doesn't have juvenile drawings/pictures. Students enjoy playing tunes many of which are familiar which are preceded by...

    technical preparatory exercises. It would be great if it had an accompaniment book and CD for piano or a 2nd cello part.
