"This DVD was extremely short and simple...a little too simple. The information given was the kind that you can get searching for the word "cello" on the internet....seriously. I have read through many cello sites and they were more informative and INTERESTING than this DVD.

This DVD is NOT worth the 20 dollars. Might as well invest in a cello instructor.

This is the worst DVD I've ever purchased."

"One silly lesson on a dvd ? Why ? This was an absolute waste of money.
If lessons 2 - onward have to come from a book or
something els than don't bother with this DVD. Check the
internet out and get more than this offers."
Pretty Good Actually

"I actually found this video very helpful. I have used it as an additional aid for showing my beginning students how to hold the cello and the bow, estimate the best size of instrument etc. Since they can examine footage of an experienced cellist as she plays, they can glean subtle details about posture, hand position, etc. that they won't easily get from a book or website. I am a man teaching only female students (so far). Since my hands, legs, etc., are much larger than theirs, it is not always helpful for me to simply show them how I hold the bow or how I rest the cello between my legs. One reviewer felt that the lessons are too basic: I recommend re-examining words such as "ultimate" and "beginner" in the video's title - with a dictionary close at hand!"
Waste of money

"This should be called ultimate idiot series. This dvd is not even 30 minutes long and just barely teaches anything except how to hold the cello and a very simple exercise. Then its all over. There should have been more exercises and examples for the price. Its not worth more than 5 dollars for the info. it contains."
