The book has been designed for adults with no previous knowledge in cello games. Clear learning steps allow for the secure appropriation of the technical foundations. Step by step and practically, the cellists are also introduced to the sheet music. Short pieces such as Beethoven or Mozart (some of them with piano accompaniment) increase the joy of playing and motivation, and the numerous duets for pupils and teachers also train the hearing. Through suggestions for improvisation, one's own imagination is not too short. In addition, small excerpts convey musical-historical basics.
