OUT NOW | ‘CelloMind’ – New Pedagogical Method Book for Cellists [LEARN]



Ovation Press has this week announced the release of cellists Professor Hans Jørgen Jensen and Dr Minna Rose Chung‘s new cello method book: ‘CelloMind‘.

The two-part pedagogical method book and online demonstrative videos, have been created for cellists of all ages and skill levels – with a specific focus on enhancing intonation and left-hand cello technique.

A student of Leonard Rose, Channing Robbins and Pierre Fournier, Hans Jørgen Jensen currently serves a distinguished professorship at Northwestern University Bienen School of Music, his students having won first prizes in numerous national and international competitions – as well as having won places of major US orchestras and leading music schools.

Dr Minna Rose Chung currently serves a cello professorship at the University of Manitoba Desautels Faculty of Music.

“The book is in two parts … one, intonation, and two, left hand cello technique …” Professor Jensen has told The Violin Channel.

“Over the years I was often very frustrated in my teaching that I did not have a system where I could teach students a method about intonation that would have a lasting influence on them … ” he has said.

“I kept searching for better ways and with the help of a number of students created a system where understanding the theories about intonation and applying that to practical application really gave them tools that now can last a lifetime.”

“It is the clearest and most comprehensive discussion of the subject I have seen, and an important contribution to string pedagogy,” New England Conservatory cello pedagogue Paul Katz has stated.
