Cello Method Lesson book 1 Book & CD Gabriel Koeppen


The first book in the trailblazing new Koeppen Cello Method, putting the emphasis on having fun with your cello!

Taking a playful and effective approach to learning the cello, the Koeppen Cello Method breaks new ground, sprucing up the usual Baroque and Classical repertoire by adding pieces in popular styles: rock, Bossa Nova, reggae, swing and more! Exciting pieces and exercises in these styles illustrate specific musical concepts and techniques, whilst teacher-pupil duets feature throughout, encouraging strong ensemble skills right from the get-go.

Structured in an easy and understandable way, the Koeppen Cello Method lays the foundation for a solid technical and musical training. There is a core Lesson Book and a supplementary Tune Book at each level. All books are accompanied by a CD which will help motivate and inspire.

For players from around the age of 10 right up to adult learners.
