London Professional violin/viola teacher
- This is an excellent book for established students and indeed teachers! It starts with the premise that while may know a lot about playing the violin, you may not know that much about playing jazz on the violin.
The approach is logical and thorough, and right from the beginning establishes a process of how to work on the pieces. Each new element is explained clearly, with examples and exercises to back it all up.
The accompanying CD is great and there are suggested listening lists at each stage to introduce and expand your knowledge of jazz and swing.
A perfect book for independent learning, it's very accessible and not at all daunting for a classical student or teacher to use.
- I haven't found any bad points yet!
