“An excellent book for cello teachers and string players alike — well-written, pragmatic, and user friendly. Rosindust is a welcome addition to any string teacher’s library.”
Pamela Devenport, Suzuki Cello Teacher Trainer,
The School for Strings, New York, NY

“I love this book!”
Richard Aaron, Professor of Cello,
The Juilliard School

“This highly readable and eminently useful book is relevant to a young beginner’s first lesson as much as to a conservatoire student.”
Strad Magazine July 2009

“I have used “Rosindust” for three years as a text for
my string pedagogy class at SMU with great success.The students really enjoy the thoughtful way it is written appreciating the specific teaching ideas for use with their students– but also their own playing.”
Deborah Perkins, Ph.D
SMU String techniques/String Pedagogy

“I have thoroughly enjoyed reading Rosindust and in fact find it so valuable that Rosindust has become a text book for my graduate course, String Pedagogy for the Double Bass.
Reviewing teaching systems, bass pedagogy, methods and materials is relatively easy and largely obvious. What Rosindust has added to the class is insight into the practical
and vastly human elements necessary to succeed as a studio teacher at any level. Thank you and BRAVO! for your unique, insightful and indespensible volume.”
Paul Ellison L.S. Autrey Professor of Double Bass,
String Pedagogy Chair, Shepherd School, Rice University
Pedagogy Advisor, The Colburn School, Los Angeles

“For the past two years I having been using Cornelia Watkins’ book Rosindust for string education courses here at the Crane School of Music, and the students continually
tell me how much they like reading it. The specific lower string instruction is beneficial to string teachers and orchestra directors, and the thoughtful, reflective writing on the
teaching process is a personal inspiration for me, fellow school string teachers, and future music educators.”
Dr. Peggy Wheeler,Crane School of Music, SUNY Potsdam
