Technique Takes Off! Cello presents fourteen original, imaginative studies for solo cello, specially designed to lead on from elementary studies for younger players to more advanced material by Dotzauer and Popper. Each piece concentrates on one or two aspects of technique, and the whole set covers a wide range of left and right hand skills, including spicatto bowing, string-crossing, moto perpetuo, cantible, and easy double stops.

Teachers and pupils will find this invaluable, yet light hearted, collection both enjoyable and stimulating.

"I have been meaning to write to say how much pleasure Technique Takes Off has given me and my students. Beautifully conceived, imaginative and great fun to teach. I have been using it at higher levels with more detail too. All power to your elbow!" 

William Bruce (Head of Strings and ABRSM examiner)
