Publisher Description

Colourstrings® Cello ABC is finally available in digital format! Cello Books A, B, C and D and Piattini are released as electronic publications. 



Cello ABC Book D is the fourth book in the Colourstrings® Cello ABC approach. With a few exceptions, the songs in this book are introduced in positions where the melody can be played with natural harmonics. Many of the songs are notated so that they may be played as a duo with the teacher or another student.

Books C (also available on iTunes Store) and D contain folk songs from at least 20 countries or regions. Duets also include short excerpts by Kodaly and Bartók. Here is a friendly way of wrapping technical work disguised in beautifu lmelodies from around the world – a veritable map of the cello fingerboard! The extended position is introduced via the use of harmonics: no finger pressure - no hand tension or strain. Shifting and melodies transposed to many different keys appear in positions 1–7. It is beautifully written with great illustrations and attention to detail.



The Colourstrings® method uses a colour for each string and focuses on teaching children rhythm and technique on open strings while gradually introducing them to more complicated methods.



About the Colourstrings® method: 



Colourstrings® is child-centred.  The materials are colourful, stimulating and entice children to embark on musical adventures that will enable each of them to fulfil their musical potential through fun and creativity, without pressure.  It is an extension of the Kodály philosophy: everything starts with singing to develop inner hearing.  Central to the approach is the role of play and imagination – often the value of play can be overlooked in the rush to get on with the ‘real’ lesson. 



Colourstrings® is a Kodaly based, child centred approach to music education that has been in existence since the early 1970's. Its originators, the Hungarian brothers Géza and Csaba Szilvay, revolutionised music education in Finland to such an extent that Colourstrings® has become an integral part of the state music school system there.



Colourstrings® has gained an outstanding reputation for the skill of its teachers, the success of its students and the inspiring ideas that drive it: 



”This excellent method for the young musical generation has proved to be really very successful. It is by now a fully established method and has already produced many fine string players.” MAX ROSTAL (The Late Professor, CBE, Honorary President ESTA)
