The David Finckel videos on YouTube are great. It's nice to reaffirm your cello knowledge from teachers like David. Lynn Harrell I believe also made videos and posted them on social media. These videos are a great tool but don't replace the effectiveness of a private teacher. If anyone is interested in learning privately, I have been teaching virtually and it has been good for me and my students. Feel free to visit my website at https://www.wpcellostudio.com
I just want to let those student cellists out there that so far Cassia Harvey's is excellent.
I have one friend who is a huge fan of Cassia Harvey’s books. She always talks how wonderful they are.
She sent one of them to me as a pdf-copy, The Fauré Elegie Study Book. I have not looked at it so much yet, because I haven’t started to practice that piece yet, but I took a look at it yesterday. It actually looks really good. It breaks the whole piece in small parts and there is multiple exercises for every part. There are exercises for intonation, finger patterns, rhythm, speed...I think everything you can imagine is covered!
But I’m a little old-fashioned, so I would like this as a real physical book. Maybe I just should find some place where I can order it. So thank you Mouse for your description of the book’s bindings, that was one thing I was wondering, because I don’t want it if it’s too difficult to use.
