As with the other books in his "...for Cello" series, Rick Mooney has made the learning of a specific technique easier and more enjoyable than ever before. Book 2 continues where Book 1 left off and includes classical music, folk tunes, and original pieces by Rick Mooney such as "Around the Gypsy Campfire", Harry the Hirsute Housefly", "Petite Partita" and much more. As in Book 1, all of the pieces have been arranged as duets, with a second cello part for the teacher (or other students in a group class) to play. As a result, students are readily able to hear when they are playing accurately. "Thumb Position for Cello" comes in two volumes. Book 1 includes only the four basic fingering patterns used in thumb posi- tion. This is the only book available which gives the student so much opportunity for repetition and mastery of basic thumb position technique. Book 2 (available in 1999) includes more advanced thumb position techniques including chromatic finger patterns, extending the hand, use of fourth finger, moving the thumb across as well as up and down the string, and getting into and out of thumb position. These well-organized, enjoyable books will be a welcome addition to the libraries of all teachers and students of the cello.

"My husband and I are really impressed with your customer service. It's a rarity to experience the type of attention that you have paid to this matter. The school where our two kids attend, has violin as a part of their third grade curriculum. After the customer service you have shown we both would feel comfortable endorsing your company to other parents at the school who will be needing violins and other instruments for their children."

"I can honestly say that ActiveMusician has had the BEST customer service that I have ever encountered when dealing with an online company. Again thank you and happy new year. I look forward to many more orders in the future."

"When my fiancé told me he wanted an acoustic guitar for his birthday, I had no idea how I was going to pull it off. However, this site made it very easy for me. It is very easy to find what you are looking for and the "related items" helped me pick out some accessories. I did experience a problem when it came to shipping. One of my items was reported as delivered by UPS. But when I contacted ActiveMusician, they sent out another stand right away, and it still arrived in time! I have nothing but good things to say about this site, and I have already started telling everyone about them!"
