Reviews

A pleasant surprise is in store for cello teachers who have not yet come across the Cello Time series . . . The repetitive aspect of practice goes unnoticed when we are presented with such a diverse choice of appealing material. Smiling faces and brightly coloured cheerful scenes on the front cover of both volumes set the stage for an enthusiastic learning atmosphere. Humorous illustrations throughout ensure the promise of happy lesson times. The books are not too long for youngsters to wade through and the pages are clearly spaced and easy to read.

Quotes

A pleasant surprise is in store for cello teachers who have not yet come across the Cello Time series . . . The repetitive aspect of practice goes unnoticed when we are presented with such a diverse choice of appealing material. Smiling faces and brightly coloured cheerful scenes on the front cover of both volumes set the stage for an enthusiastic learning atmosphere. Humorous illustrations throughout ensure the promise of happy lesson times. The books are not too long for youngsters to wade through and the pages are clearly spaced and easy to read. * Stringendo (Australian String Assoc) Vol 1 2004 * Cello Time Joggers recognises the need for simple pieces to help beginners 'jog along'. In selecting very easy tunes, ranging from folk to rock and calypso, everything is carefully paced to build confidence along the way . . . Students will enjoy reading the Notice Boards that introduce new notes and rhythms. The use of open strings at first allows students to establish balanced posture and bowing skills without the added complication of left hand fingering. Boredom is avoided by the teacher playing along in duets. Star marked staves suggest the more difficult line can be learned later . . . Young cellists will relish playing their favourite melodies many times over!. * Stringendo (Australian String Assoc) Vol 1 2004 * An unexpected bonus handily pocketed at the back of the books is a CD that is sure to boost the most flagging spirits. The rigours of learning are seemingly forgotten as they play alongside the tape - from dreamy strings to the drum-kit beat. As the student becomes aware of the inevitability of the rhythmic beat, we are on the way to establishing an inner 'rhythmic' pulse. The CD helps with listening for good intonation and a beautiful sound as well as freeing the teacher from the need to accompany, so that a watchful eye can be kept on posture and so on. Pieces are counted in to these tasteful accompaniments. Separate piano accompaniment books are also available. These two volumes certainly succeed in providing lots of motivational repertoire for budding cellists. Kathy and David Blackwell's continuing series guarantees musical enjoyment! * Stringendo (Australian String Assoc) Vol 1 2004 * The books are laid out in a very approachable and exciting way, and are clear and large making them easy to read . . . These two books, but particularly the Runners, are an excellent addition to available teaching repertoire on the cello. For parents and children alike, access to accompaniments is a wonderful bonus in the age of the CD player . . . I applaud the book educationally and for motivating pupils, and I shall certainly use Runners with my pupils. * Wendy Owen, Ensemble, January 03 * The Cello Time books are more conventional and make excellent use of technology in the shape of CDs with very imaginative backing which includes the cello part. My pupils loved them . . . In both books the progression is excellent, the pieces not too long and there is a good glossary at the end . . . this is a most welcome publication. * Music Teacher, June 2003 *

David Blackwell Biography

David Harold Blackwell (April 24, 1919 – July 8, 2010) was an American statistician and mathematician who made significant contributions to game theory, probability theory, information theory, and statistics. He is one of the eponyms of the Rao–Blackwell theorem. He was the first African American inducted into the National Academy of Sciences, the first African American tenured faculty member at the University of California, Berkeley, and the seventh African American to receive a Ph.D. in mathematics. In 2012, President Obama posthumously awarded Blackwell the National Medal of Science. Blackwell was also a pioneer in textbook writing. He wrote one of the first Bayesian statistics textbooks, his 1969 Basic Statistics. By the time he retired, he had published over 90 papers and books on dynamic programming, game theory, and mathematical statistics.

Early life and education

David Harold Blackwell was born on April 24, 1919, in Centralia, Illinois, to Mabel Johnson Blackwell, a full-time homemaker, and Grover Blackwell, an Illinois Central Railroad worker. He was the eldest of four children. Growing up in an integrated community, Blackwell attended "mixed" schools, where he distinguished himself in mathematics. During elementary school, his teachers promoted him beyond his grade level on two occasions. It was in a high school geometry course, however, that his passion for math began. An exceptional student, Blackwell graduated high school in 1935 at the age of sixteen.Blackwell entered the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with the intent to study elementary school mathematics and become a teacher. He was a member of the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity. In 1938 he earned his bachelor's degree in mathematics and a master's degree in 1939, and was awarded a Doctor of Philosophy in mathematics in 1941 at the age of 22. His doctoral advisor was Joseph L. Doob. At the time, Blackwell was the seventh African American to earn a Ph.D. in mathematics in the United States and the first at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Career and research

Postdoctoral study and early career

Blackwell completed one year of postdoctoral research as a fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) at Princeton in 1941 after receiving a Rosenwald Fellowship. There he met John von Neumann, who asked Blackwell to discuss his Ph.D. thesis with him. Blackwell, who believed that von Neumann was just being polite and not genuinely interested in his work, did not approach him until von Neumann himself asked him again a few months later. According to Blackwell, "He (von Neumann) listened to me talk about this rather obscure subject and in ten minutes he knew more about it than I did."While a postdoc at IAS, Blackwell was prevented from attending lectures or undertaking research at nearby Princeton University, which the IAS has historically collaborated with in research and scholarship activities, because of his race.
