The Violin Lesson offers players of all standards the opportunity to immediately and #8212; and dramatically and #8212; 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 approaches to neglected aspects of playing whilst covering all the major areas of violin technique, including:

  • tone production
  • intonation
  • avoiding aches and pains
  • changing position
  • improving bow strokes
  • vibrato

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 question-and-answer sections to present a truly rounded volume and #8212; essential reading for both students and teachers alike.
