This is the ultimate book to help you refine the position shifts within the first three positions. Containing twenty-two instructive exercises and thirty-six great pieces to play, the book is divided into three chapters, each clearly structured to demonstrate the different ways of shifting positions. The use of ‘in-between notes’ and colour to highlight a new shift provides extra clarity.

In short: this is a well-founded and practical book that can be used alongside any method. The accompaniment on two CDs completes Violin Position Shifts and provides even more playing fun.
