String Methods for Beginners (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


String Methods: A Textbook for Beginners is designed for students to receive the essential playing and teaching skills on all orchestral string instruments. The goal of this textbook is to be truly methodical in its approach, and to assist the instructor, completely eliminating the need to do additional research, or reorganization in preparation to teach this class. Students will gain the basic knowledge and experience to teach bowed stringed instruments in public schools. Strings Methods covers the necessary topics to learn and teach the violin, viola, cello, and string bass. It explores the fundamentals of those instruments and teaching considerations, utilizing a heterogeneous approach.

As the primary resource to any college- and university-level String Techniques, String Methods, or Instrumental Methods class, this coursebook fits into a standard semester, comprised of twenty five lessons, which correspond with two hourly classes per week for the term. It provides the instructor with the tools to teach a classroom of non-majors or string education majors, or a mixed classroom of both.


Offers a blueprint for a semester long string methods course
