“The Art of the Violin... concept is not intended to serve as a new violin method, but to fill in the gaps in the already-existing literature in a format that will encompass current and future technology.
It was created: 1) to serve as a developmental tool for the development of the flexor tendon of the right arm in a strictly musical context, that of tonality; and
2) to present a sequential order of exercise material to assist in removing the inhibition of physical limitations. In others words, teaching the mind and body how to advance to the next level of instruction on the violin.”

The Art of the Violin
books, along with the recorded accompaniments, give many varied opportunities to develop and expound correct intonation, as well as other aspects of musicianship. The diversity of the the approach, i.e., using actual musical accompaniments to learn technique, will eliminate boredom, yet provide repetition.”
