There is no shortage of books on how to play the violin, but the aim of
Robert Gerle, one of America's most distinguished teachers and soloists,
is specifically to suggest ways of planning a violin student's
practice. The hints given by the author will in many cases be useful for
all string players, particularly on sight-reading and memorizing. Paperback text: 110 pages.
Robert Gerle follows up his guide to successful violin practice with a
penetrating study of the art of bowing. Matching artistic problems with
technical solutions, he shows how phrasing, tone-production and
interpretation may be improved by attention to the fundamental art of
the bow. Paperback text: 101 pages.
