Basics is a collection of 300 practice methods and exercises for the Violin. It can be used by players of all standards, from concert Violinists to students. Much of the material is also suitable for teaching elementary players.

Each exercise is designed to achieve the maximum possible result in the least possible time. Some are very short and need to be done only once or twice to explore a particular aspect of technique. Others are practice routines or warm-up exercises that can be returned to regularly.

Rating Review
Customer Rating This is a must-have for all serious violinists.

The book is used internationally, and for good reason - all aspects of technique are covered with clear explanations and exercises that are effective.

I have used this myself and with pupils, with fantastic results. Highly recommended!

Customer Rating Very helpful for correcting errors of position which can easily occur. The book has plenty of photos to illustrate the points. Its divided into 2 sections, one for the left hand, the other for the right hand. Lots of exercises. What I found particularly helpful was the different techniques which can be used for people with small hands or large hands. Overall, a great resource which I know I'll be using for years to come.

Customer Rating A superbly comprehensive volume which does exactly what it says and deals with the basics. However it doesn't stop at basics. This book is invaluable to student, teacher and professional alike.

Customer Rating This is a very comprehensive book which will improve the technique and skill of most readers.

The instructions are very clear and covers all aspects of playing.

This is an essential for anyone wanting to build a solid foundation.

Customer Rating The music arrived promptly and was delightedly received by my partner as part of his Christmas present. Thank you.

Customer Rating Great book, this will last you for years. There are so many techniques, and the section on bowing is particularly informative. This is a big book and well worth the money. This book is not just the basics, it goes well beyond what most books provide.

Customer Rating I am an intermediate level adult learner and this book was recommended to me by my teacher. It contains marvellous pictures for bowing and fingering and really well designed drills for strength, coordination and tone. The instructions are laid out very clearly and systematically. It will take me a lifetime to study everything in here. Already working on some of the drills has transformed my playing. Expensive but well worth it for the committed learner.

Customer Rating Fantastic book. Very useful tips both for practice and teaching! Excellent presentation so it is very easy to understand the excercises (pictures, instructions,etc). Couldn't reccomend it enough. A must for every violinist to have.
