Gems Cello Cover Front

To my Suzuki Cello colleagues who have long been asking for “ensemble pieces like the violins have”, my new book is now available from Alfred.com and other good music shops.

These pieces are Gems! A great resource for anybody working with mixed-level groups.

Is it possible to post the link here to where I can purchase the book? I wasn’t able to located it on Alfred.com.

Thanks so much!

It hasn’t quite made it to the website yet for ordering, but if you email them at: [javascript protected email address] with the “Item Code 20131UK” and the title “Gems for Cello Ensembles—Helen Butterworth” they should take your order. I’m hoping that other stores like Shar and Young Musicians Online will have it soon too, and it will make it to the Alfred website eventually.

Just called Alfred and they don’t have it and don’t know when they will get. When I asked to speak to the appropriate department the salesman was not very helpful. Do you have a contact, Helen?

I’ve contacted Alfred UK to ask if they can help get copies to the US quickly. I don’t now have a contact directly with Alfred in the US but I’m hopeful something can be sorted pretty quickly. We have loads of copies here in the UK!! Watch this space, Carey!

I’ve now been told by Alfred here in the UK that my book is being printed “locally” in the US for Alfred US to distribute and should be available “later this month”. Keep asking for it!
