I see this book at the Suzuki store for violin and viola group lessons. Is there a similar book or other resource out there for cello group lessons? I have ideas, but am always looking for more!

Hello Barb, I am also in the look out for group lessons ideas. I posted an “ideas exchange” in the discussion board (https://suzukiassociation.org/discuss/6100/), have not gotten any response. We need to start a discussion board about it. Good luck and I’d love to hear from you!

Thanks so much Rochelle for this information. I just contacted Pam about the book. Also, I have “Playing the String Game” by Phyllis Young, which is a wonderful resource for fun ideas. It is not specifically Suzuki but the mini-games in it could easily be applied to a group situation. I need to read it again myself.
