Mike Block is an amazing cellist and teacher who performs regularly with Yo Yo ma. I have studied with him at numerous camps and workshops.
Hello Fellow Cellists!
We are excited to announce that we have launched the online fundraising campaign for our new book, “Contemporary Cello Etudes: Studies in Style and Technique”, featuring 30 brand-new, never-before-published, non-classical cello etudes, composed by 13 contributors! It was an honor and a privilege to be a part of this unique project, and we hope it can be a valuable resource for the cello community. CLICK HERE to view our fundraising campaign!
LIST OF CONTRIBUTORS: Ashley Bathgate, Stephan Braun, Rushad Eggleston, Rufus Cappadocia, Erik Friedlander, Eugene Friesen, Natalie Haas, Giovanni Sollima, Mark Summer, Jacob Szekely, Matt Turner, Jeffrey Zeigler, and Mike Block.
The book spans Beginner through Advanced levels, and each Etude is accompanied with background text/advice, reference recordings, and “Ideas for further practice.”
If you are interested in playing cello in a variety of styles, than this book is for YOU!!
We are hoping to pre-sell 500 books through this campaign. Please consider purchasing the book, and helping us spread the word on social media! :)
