Cello Resources


Cellos2go.com has a good selection of accessories. They carry my favorite rosin, Liebenzeller Gold IV.

Sharmusic.com has a wide selection of accessories and the best selection and prices for strings. I recommend Larsen strings in Forte gauge for A, D, G, and C strings. Another setup would be Larsen Forte for A, D and G, and then Thomastik Spirocore tungsten C string.

Locally, Weishaar Violin Shop has competitively priced strings.

Recommended Etudes and Pieces

Recommended Viewing

Margaret Rowell was my cello teacher's teacher. Her inspiring teaching philosophy, engaging and inquisitive love of life, and continued enquiry into simplifying the art of cello playing were transferred to Irene Sharp, who in turn passed them to me.

Irene writes: "Margaret has students everywhere. My students, Margaret's grandstudents, love to have her come to our Sunday morning workshops. She imparts such a feeling of history, love, and sensitivity, and does it with such a flow of energy, that we all come away inspired. From her presence one gets a sense of a pebble thrown into a pool of water with widening circles flowing out from the center. Each person she has touched knows that he has had an extraordinary experience."
