A Grand Tour of Cello Technique is a thought-provoking practice-guide, enabling cellists at all levels to develop their own style through an exploration of different ways of fingering and bowing. The book not only helps cellists improve their playing, but also promotes an understanding of musical art, through nine stimulating chapters:

  • Introducing Twelve Tones
  • Triads and Seventh Chords
  • Circle of Fifths
  • Scales
  • Metronome Games
  • Harmonics and Open Strings
  • Lateral Motion
  • Extended Techniques and a Discussion of the Bow
  • Practicing Together

With a particular emphasis on music of the 20th and 21st centuries, and its connections with earlier music, Fred Sherry takes the readeron a voyage of discovery of the art and science of cello technique, informed by music ranging from Bach all the way through to Berio.
