The Otto Langey Tutors were “the” method books of the early 20th century. Langey, a cellist, was a German immigrant to America who wrote method books for most of the major instruments. Many young instrumentalists used these books for their first studies. The rudiments of music are clearly explained, and the scale and arpeggio exercises are offer enough variety to keep even the most active minds engaged. In addition to Langey’s own etudes, a selection of etudes by other composers (Vaubaron, Belgke, Dieppo, Manna, Clodomir) plus some solo pieces, round out this wonderful old book.
