Cello Secrets: Over 100 Performance Strategies for the Advanced Cellist 

with Jo Nardolillo

from Rowman & Littlefield

Cello Secrets explains over 100 of the most helpful insider

tricks cellists use to master the instrument. With each

technique carefully explained and illustrated, the book

serves as an accessible textbook for all advanced cello

players. This book guides advanced students through

technical maintenance and performance preparation. Cowritten

by Brian Hodges and Jo Nardolillo, these tips grow

from extensive study of the art of high-level teaching with

many of today's leading pedagogues, and have been

developed into strategies, tricks, and techniques that are

taught in masterclasses and seminars around the country.

The book provides:

  • Insightful Information

  • Demystifying Cello Technique

  • Troubleshooting

  • Practical tips and advice

  • Experienced professionals talking from their own career

Cello Secrets organizes these ideas into a single book, and

will have great value for private teachers and as a textbook

in cello pedagogy courses. Professionals and skilled

amateurs can use the text as a guidebook in improving their

own skills.
