“CelloMind is marvellous. Everything about it is classy-the pictures, the type set-but most of all it is very thoughtful and insightful. Great book!"

"Hans Jensen, the eminent professor of cello has written a superb and comprehensive guide. It contains a particularly useful and thorough analysis of intonation, the most important facet in cello playing."
International soloist and renowned teacher, Korea National University of Arts, the School of Music.
“CelloMind allows us to enter the workshop-and mind-of one of the world’s preeminent cello teachers. Through a perfect blend of explanations and practical exercises, it covers all of the essential areas of technique in a way that allows students to apply the ideas to their practicing and playing with both theoretical understanding and positive results. Every teacher and every student should own this book.”
American cello virtuoso and past president of both the American String Teachers Association and the Violoncello Society, Inc. of New York. Professor of Cello, Boyer College and Dance, Temple University
“CelloMind is really amazing. I have learned so much! And yes, the Tartini-tones, that’s a new idea for me, I love it. There are so many things that I like, but particularly the notion that one can move freely between the different intonation “methods”, not just from Baroque/Classical to Romantic but even within any given phrase depending on context. That makes complete sense, but I had always thought that you were either well-tempered or “expressive” kind of like being either a dog or cat person. Congratulations, it is a great achievement and I hope it brings you both much success, admiration and kudos.”
Cello Soloist, Chamber Musician. Recording Artist, Professor of Cello at the Royal Academy of Music London and State University of New York at Stony Brook.
"CelloMind is a goldmine! From my perspective, as both a performer and teacher, this book is a priceless resource. The typical dry science of the various tuning systems is presented in a clear, easily-digested format and backed up with exercises and videos. This beautiful book has become a part of my daily technical routines and helped me be a better teacher when refining and introducing various left-hand techniques to students both young and advanced."
