VIDEO LINK INDEX STARTS HERE:

Cellopedia

If you Google Cellopedia, you will find a lot of videos by Cellopedia. There is also a website that you will find in the search. There is a tiered option to join the Cellopedia studies. Each tier up gets you more benefits. I do not belong, so I do not think it is right to post that link. But this guy plays great and has a wonderful video format, as seen in the Chanson Triste thread I started. Here is that thread’s link. There is a link to Cellopedia playing Chanson Triste:

New Cello Lesson Song

 

Professor Laszlo Mezo

If you Google Suzuki Cello book [insert book number here] Professor Laszlo Mezo you will get options for Professor Laszlo Mezo playing the Suzuki Cello Lesson songs.

He plays them with piano accompaniment, metronome, slowed tempo, etc. The videos are not just a one time play through.

Here is a link to the cello section at the Music Connect with more from Professor Laszlo Mezo. There are some links for fingerings of a few songs you can download. I do not believe they are Suzuki. I have not downloaded them. I ran across this page looking for information.

Professor Laszlo Mezo Additional Information

 

Cello Talk 

David Finckel has 100 Cell Talks that are absolutely the best! Here is a link to his page that lists them all so you can pick and choose. I bookmarked this link so I can always find it.

Sarah Joy: Offers many videos for cello.

Joseph Mendoes: Lesson links are available from his home page:

Strings Lessons

This webpage link has links to free video cello lessons from two instructors. I have just viewed a little of a couple of the lessons. You will also find links to many violin lessons on this page. These are all free videos.

CELLO POSITION/FINGERBOARD CHART (New 10/3/2019)

This is the best chart for cello positions I have found. It not only has place the different positions start, ie 1st pos, 5th pos, 7 pos, it also has the notes associated with the fingering. This is the only chart I found like this.
