While enjoying a wide-ranging career as cello soloist and teacher, Harry Wimmer has never lost sight of the important area of beginning teaching, which remains close to his heart.

Throughout the years, Harry Wimmer's companion method, Adventures in Cello Country, has been honed by succeeding generations of young cellists.
