There is no other tutor like it. A complete system in five books that takes the student from the very first notes to Grade Eight and beyond.

Book Four introduces fourth, fifth and sixth positions, the development of bowing techniques, including string crossing, staccato, spiccato and the use of the fingers on the bow, together with further chromatics, left hand stretches and general facility.

          Extremely useful book, with a great balance of technique-building exercises, pieces and duets. Helpful for students not quite ready to do the grade 6 or 7 exam, or still catching up with theory prerequisites. However there could be more on double-stopping, since this is a new technical aspect for grade 6. Highly recommended.

          I am studying without a teacher. Book Four is excellent. Trory deals with fourth, fifth and sixth positions and a number of study areas such as bowing, string crossing, chromatics, fingering facility etc. Included are studies and pieces (challenging but ultimately playable) both of his own composition and of recognised composers such as Wolfhart (mostly)and Kayser. The first thing I did is purchase Wolfhart's 60 Studies Op.45! The level aimed at is Grades 5&6 with some Grade 7, and I think he has that set pitch perfect (pardon the pun). A bonus is the informative piece on the development of the modern bow on the inside of the back cover. Judging from this Book alone, I would say the whole series (Books 1-5) would be a very worthwhile investment for teacher or pupil interested in a fresh approach to the perenial problems of achieving perfect fiddling.
