The Essential Handbook For Violinists Violists and Fiddle Players
‘The Essential Handbook for violinists, violists and fiddle players’ is a complete guide to the violin and viola for players of all standards, teachers and parents.
You will find gems of information in it that you will only learn from a violin maker/restorer.
Written by professional luthier Rebecca Houghton, it includes essential but not widely known information on chinrest and shoulder rest fitting, instrument sizing, the set up, bows and much more.
Complete with beautiful photography and artwork, it has now sold around the world and makes the ideal present for the string player in your life.
The Strad magazine says “This slim volume….is a veritable mine of information, attractively presented and easy to navigate…would recommend it to all who teach and play the violin or the viola, as well as to parents of young players.” “It provides answers to things that as a teacher I probably ought to have known, but didn’t….I found it to be a fascinating read”.
