Originally published in 1930, this little book is not an exposition of the art of violin-playing, nor does it claim to teach a system of technical study. The authors aim was to help students and less experienced teachers through some of the more frequent problems from which they will, almost inevitably, be faced. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Hesperides Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. Contents Include: Posture and the Holding of the Instrument 'Bow Measurement' On Bowing Generally Intonation Various Difficulties Playing of Chords and Chord Passages Shifting and the Portamento The Playing of Octaves Double-Stopping Harmonics 'Artificial' Harmonics Vibrato Tenths and Fingered Octaves Memorizing, Playing From Melody Conclusion, Inspiration, A Repertoire Always Ready
