    I really needed a new book of songs just for the practice of possible different keys, arrangements, interpretations, and for songs that I don’t have in other books. I found all of this in this collection. Having guitar chords included is nice, as I can record that part and play along with an accompaniment.

    As a child, I began playing the viola. Playing viola through college in many orchestras, I still wanted to play the cello. Not until a few years back did I actually obtain a cello. After a medical break, I had the cello strings restrung and learning to play all over again. The books on Amazon for beginners, like this one, are SO HELPFUL. Playing assists in lowering my stress level and others by filling the air waves with beautiful music others recognize. Play on with zest and have fun!

    Easy to sight read. Recognizable pieces and a very nice variety. Great to add to a cellist library and keep handy for a quick solo piece.

    This is for my 6years old son. It’s a bit challenging for him but also enjoying familiar melody. Good for beginners.

    I started learning cello on my own last summer and have been searching for enjoyable works within my ability. I came across this a while ago and it was well worth the price.

    The fifty works cover a range of abilities from beginners to intermediate players. I find that some of the technically easier pieces are ideal to work on things like tone and intonation. There is also a range of styles from Baroque up to some fairly recent works. A couple of hymns are thrown in for good measure.

    The music is fairly free of markings. There are some bowings indicated, but for the most part you’re on your own for bowing, dynamics, fingerings, etc. This could be good or bad. On one hand, you’ve got a lot on freedom to interpret and perform as you (or perhaps your teacher) sees fit; on the other hand, such freedom could lead astray. One thing it does have is chords, so someone can fairly easily provide a simple accomplishment on a guitar, keyboard, or other chordal instrument.

    All in all, a nice book that can provide UCB enjoyment as well as learning.
