The author's stated purpose in writing The Art of Cello Playing is 'to present a progressive sequence of commentary and material as a basis for acquiring a sound technical foundation and basic playing competence to prepare the player for exploring the rich solo, orchestral, and chamber music literature of the instrument.' To that end he has produced a comprehensive textbook and reference manual on beginning to advanced cello technique with emphasis on the vital beginning foundation. Louis Potter Jr., is particularly well qualified to make this contribution from his wide experience in teaching both classes and individuals at Michigan State University and at National Music Camp, Interlochen, Michigan.

Caesar on
The only thing I have to say about this book is that I wish it were spiral bound, so that it would stay open nicely when trying to use some of the music. As it is, it's easier to photocopy the required pages. Otherwise, it's a fantastic resource, with very comprehensive information covering almost everything you need to know about the cello. But having said that, you still need a teacher - self teaching can only get you so far and you may learn bad habits.

This book uses illustrations, words, and music examples to explain every aspects of cello techniques, which I found interesting and useful. The look of the pages might not be as colorful or flashy than many other books, but you would have more fun out of it and really build up a healthy playing foundation for all cello music.

The author introduced the fourth position after the first position - a method I also use on all my cello students - which helps greatly in developing a good shifting habit. This is a very interesting and efficient approach, and I suggest all the cellists and teachers out there to give it a try!
