New cellist info and purchases: I have sent all new cellists home today with a print out of the info below, amended with two small changes. It is no longer necessary to buy a notebook, and it is necessary (rather than a suggestion) to buy a spike holder/rocstop. We will use this every week during kickstart strings rehearsals. All other info is as on the guide below, also on the print out sent home.
New Cellos home – today (1 sept) we learnt about cello care, next week we will play in lessons, and the following week new cellists will be taking their instruments home after school on friday.
Looking after your cello a guide for parents of new cellists with a list of things to purchase/bring to lessons.
Links for good online music shops:
www.fullermusic.co.uk/ – for sheet music. Phone to see if they have music in stock, and can take orders over phone or online. Very helpful!
www.boosey.com – also has a handy syllabus finder with all the music on the various exam lists
