Description

Dounis was one of the most prominent violin pedagogues of the twentieth century. He was revered for his intense concern for the proper ergonomics of violin playing as well as the emphasis on the role of the brain, not just the fingers in appropriate violin practicing and playing. The eleven books that make up this anthology are the most comprehensive collection ever published of this master's works. It includes clearly edited material as well as content that have not been in print for decades. This 290-page book features an insightful foreword to help string players understand the master's approach as well as to give the reader a historical perspective. A must for the serious violin player!
