Early Start on the Cello, Volume 1
For more than three decades The Sassmannshaus Tradition has been the household name for excellence in beginner violin, viola and cello methods in German-speaking countries. More than half a million students have successfully learned to play string instruments using these publications.
Egon Sassmannshaus is one of the most experienced and renowned cello pedagogues in Germany. His son Kurt Sassmannshaus worked as co-author and adapted his fathers successful method for English speaking children. The combined knowledge and experience of father and son have made the four volumes of the Sassmannshaus Tradition one of the most thoroughly researched, thought-through beginner methods in the world.
Note reading is introduced from the beginning, and accidentals are explained in the easiest way in the first volume. By the end of the first book, many songs using all fingers have been played and note values from whole to eighth notes have been introduced. Even the easiest exercises are underlaid with text so that melodies can be perceived as a whole.
