          Once you know how to do a basic vibrato, the later pieces are useful for improving your technique.
          It's difficult to see what the physical movements are for the initial exercises, as there is only one black and white photo per exercise and it's quite small - could have done with either more or clearer pictures or some arrows to indicate direction of the movement required. (I'm a cello teacher and this book confused both me and my students!)

          I think this book exemplifies that it is very difficult to teach vibrato in a book. For many of the movements described by the text and photographs, I had no real idea whether I was doing what the authors intended, so without being sure of the basic vibrato technique, the written exercises in the book became somewhat redundant. The book might have been more useful if it had linked to some demonstration videos on the internet. I have learned more about vibrato technique from videos freely available on YouTube than I have done from this book.
