  1. Hi Emily

    If you could do a practice guide for the Breval cello sonata that’d be awesome. I think it’s pretty a standard intermediate-ish piece, so I’m probably not the only person interested. I’ve worked on it quite a few times, but I just keep getting bogged down and don’t feel like I’m making much progress…



  2. Hi Emily!

    This is a great idea. Sorry so long to catch up. I’ve been off the cello radar lately because my gremlins un-edit my book while I sleep at night. The stupid book generates mistakes faster than I can fix them. I’m going to be buying your practice guide for La Cinq on Friday (that’s when my ‘Slush Fund’ account gets refreshed automatically). It’s really a fantastic way to sell your instructional ideas, since it’s below the price point of fast food or a crappy snack. Instead I can feed my mind, and without the guilt that comes with buying a $20-$30 book.

  3. When I said “without the guilt that comes with ..”, I was NOT referring to your book, which was a good use of funds. I was referring to just being a book junkie in general.
