This book begins with the approach that the bow should be perfectly balanced between two strings when it is playing a double stop. String Crossing for the Cello, Book Two uses exercises, etudes, and short excerpts of Bach to help the intermediate cellist study string crossing between any two strings with the bow. This book can also help more advanced cellists refine their bow technique prior to playing Bowing Studies on Arpeggios for the Cello.

    I use this book in preparation to introducing all my students to Bach's first suite for cello, specifically the prelude. I find students often struggle with intonation and smooth bow crossings, both of which are the focus of this book. I highly recommend this book. If you have a...
