Violin Playing Book 5 – Robert Trory
There is no other tutor like it. A complete system in five books that takes the student from the very first notes to Grade Eight and beyond. Beautifully presented and printed with visual clarity that helps the student learn to read music. No distracting cartoons. Enjoyable duets for pupil and teacher. Suitable for ALL ages.
Book five is an essential collection of studies that introduces playing in higher positions, tone production, more advanced string crossing, ricochet bowing, up bow staccato, and develops general facility. This book completes the requirements for grade seven and covers requirements for grade eight. It then leads on to a further study of the standard works of Kreutzer, Rode, Dont, Gavines and Alard amongst others, and to the contemporary work of Simon Fischer.
