Yesterday, started using the Klengel Technical Studies For Cello. It seems like a pretty good book for cello scales and bowing. My instructor used this book and still uses it to hone his bowing.

The first study I am working on is great. I tend to be very stiff and mechanical, which in turn prevents me from doing anything that is fast. This is great for that.

I have not gone too far into the book, but with this one exercise, I can see where, and feel how, this is really going to help. It showed when I went to to work on my first section of page two of the Sonata for Cello that we also started yesterday during class.

I have looked at other pages and they look intense. But, this page I am starting with also looked very intense and had me a little panicked when I started, but I am doing it. Great confidence builder. My instructor told me I could do it, and he was right. My instructor saw the panic on my face when I saw all those black notes on the page. Always freaks me out.

I am adding this to the index I created for cello lessons/videos/skill builders. The link to the index post is here:
