"The Violin Lesson" offers players of all levels the opportunity immediately - and dramatically - to improve their technique and understanding of violin playing. Presented in twelve comprehensive and highly accessible lessons filled with more than 500 music examples and over 350 photographs, it provides fresh aproaches to neglected aspects of playing whilst covering all the major areas of violin technique, including:
- tone production
- avoiding aches and pains
- changing position
- improving bow strokes
Whether outlining a basic concept or an advanced technique, each topic is handled with the clarity and attention to detail for which Simon Fischer is so highly regarded. Fundamental exercises, principles, and practice methods sit alongside case studies and practical guestion-and-answer sections to present a truly rounded volume - essential reading for both students and teachers alike.
