I have started playing cello this March and purchased many books. My learning is online with various videos and book learning. I am doing Suzuki and reached the end of book 1. I do not play perfectly but I do love to progress through and be challenged.
The beggining book has a nice mixture of melodies and instructions, and I quickly got back up to speed. To get the most out of it, you really need to sit and read it as well, small phrases can be passed over that are very important, such as "try to think about the musical phrase while you play" is easy to overlook while practicing, but important to keep in mind.
Having played before I am finding myself flipping back and forth between books, but even the begginning book has some lovely pieces that with changes in emphasis or repeats become compelling pieces for performance.
I actually moved into book two before I was finished with book one completely, but I still go back into book one for refresher exercises. At least once a week I have a practice session where I go back to basic things to work on fine tuning technique, and this graduated system is very good for that.
Listening to good cellists and a teacher can help you with phrasing and musicality, but this book is very good on basic technical information with an ephasis on getting the finger placements correct and working each one.
