GUIDE THROUGH VIOLIN LITERATURE.
The Roman Figures (I, la, lb, II, etc.) indicate the Steps to which the respective works belong.
Courvoisier, C. Violin School. (7600 a—c).
An elaborate method in three parts, with five supplementary parts constituting a "School of Velocity" (7603 a—e), with copious explanations given in English, German and French. David, F. Violin School.
Hofmann, R. The First Instruction in Violin Playing, complete (5668) or in 2 Bks. (5668 a, b). (Der erste Unter-richt im Violinspiel.) Op. 92.
The first elements are explained in a very thorough and
systematic manner. For young amateurs it has moreover the
advantage of engaging their interest by the frequent use of
well known melodies in the places of dry meaningless figures.
Kayser, H. E. Popular Violin Tutor (Elementary). Op. 65.
A clear and systematic primer which leads the pupil on by the aid of favourite melodies will be always attractive for young beginners. Mazas. Petite Methode.
Popular Instructor in Violin Playing (2 Bks.). (7623 a, b). Simple and progressive, making much use of operatic airs and national melodies.
Ritter, E. W. Practical School (10 Bks.). (7610 a—k).
The explanatory text is clear and to the point. Scholz, Richard. School of Artistic Violin Playing. A theoretical and practical Instruction Book, in all matters relating to style, for moderately advanced players. Op. 9. (5681).
Excellent work for style and phrasing. Clear and exhaustive explanations of every chapter make the work particularly useful, especially for those who have not the opportunity for individual teaching.
