To my students:

On this page you will find cello duets with videos of me playing one of the parts (always the bottom). Print out the music - or display it on a separate tablet - then click on "play with me!" so that you can play your part with mine. Try to sightread them, or take some time to learn them. See if you can find an appearance of my daughter Lena in one of them!
