In general, Professor Geringas comments that it is important to think about the sound that the musician wants to provide, because there are a lot of possibilities. He then recommends vocalizing the sound with the cello in the same way that a singer does with his voice.

Afterwards, they work on legato, bow changes related to the tempo of the piece (Adagio), dynamics, and sound preparation with the breathing.

The student should move the body like an instrument producing a sound. After an issue about bow distribution, the professor suggests the student to answer his own questions regarding the music by himself.
