The Violin Lesson offers players of all levels the opportunity immediately - and dramatically - to improve their technique and understanding of violin playing. Presented in twelve comprehensive and highly accessible lessons filled with more than 500 music examples and over 350 photographs, it provides fresh aproaches to neglected aspects of playing whilst covering all the major areas of violin technique, including:

  • tone production
  • intonation
  • avoiding aches and pains
  • changing position
  • improving bow strokes
  • vibrato

Whether outlining a basic concept or an advanced technique, each topic is handled with the clarity and attention to detail for which Simon Fischer is so highly regarded. Fundamental exercises, principles, and practice methods sit alongside case studies and practical guestion-and-answer sections to present a truly rounded volume - essential reading for both students and teachers alike.

  • August 17, 2014 A great book to start off your pedagogy collection

    This is a very good albeit different book to the more hands-on technique books such as Practice, Basics and Carl Flesh scales etc. The contents may seem wordy and exercises too rudimentary at first glance, but Violin Lesson has very thorough yet concise (and sometimes philosophical & humorous) explanations. The...

    exercises given are simple enough for beginners and intermediate students (ABRSM grades 1 to 5), and effective enough for them to produce near-instant results. Lots of case studies provided to address problems like posture, left hand, bow hold, tone, practice methods and musicality, which most students have. If you are student curious about Fischer's books, this is the book to start with. This is also a must for teachers.
