Viva Vibrato! by Gerald F. Fischbach and Robert S. Frost is exciting, innovative, and revolutionary in its approach to teaching vibrato. There has never been anything like it before.

The upbeat style and dialogue, and contemporary design, gently guides students through a five-section curriculum: Vibrato Readiness, The Birth of a Vibrato, The Developing Vibrato, The Maturing Vibrato, The Artistic Vibrato. All teachers of string instruments will find Viva Vibrato! user friendly, whether in a private studio or in a homogeneous or heterogeneous string class.

Features include:
Swingercises - Developmental exercises and techniques guide both student and teacher through an effective, friendly vibrato curriculum.
Literature - The folk songs and solos were selected for their high musical quality, beauty, range of musical style, and their application to a specific vibrato technique.
Photographs - State of the art, multiple image photographs are used to reinforce the written text.
Viva Advice - Quick, useful insights and suggestions in the Teacher's Manual will provide increased pedagogical power.
History, Anatomy, Physics, Equipment, Pedagogy - A wealth of valuable resource material is included to assist the string and non-string teacher in gaining a better understanding of the teaching of vibrato.

  • May 23, 2018 Great for teaching vibrato

    Lots of beginner exercises, with pictures! It takes a long time to develop and Control vibrato. This book really helps the student. (I also use the violin book for violin students.)
