Can you draw (on paper) your arm, including the shoulder blade and collar bone ? You move according to your brains map of the body, if there are gaps in your knowledge you will use the wrong muscles to move and the result will be extra effort, strain and eventually injury. This book teaches you not only about your arms, hands and fingers,but also about your whole structure, so you can make sure the map you have in your brain isn't faulty. Playing becomes so much easier, things will 'work', technique is no longer arduous. I wish this book had been available when I was a student at the Royal Academy of Music. It is the book all violinists need alongside everything by Simon Fischer and 'The Alexander Technique for Musicians' - a useful book to read alongside this as it is a masterclass in how to let go of old habits.
I wish I could give this book 10 stars. When I first received it, I flipped through and found several techniques I was able to immediately employ and benefit from. Then while reading it over the course of a week, I had my mind blown repeatedly as I came to understand my anatomy and how our bones and muscles and connective tissues actually function. As a violinist for roughly 44 years beginning to suffer potentially career-ending shoulder pain, this book has been a life-saver. I'm working through it a second time now, and discovering even more. It helps to know some Alexander Technique (I spent 6 months working with a great practitioner in Chicago about 10 years ago) but it's also not required. Understanding your misconceptions and mismappings about your body can change how you play overnight.
Excellent read for violinists.2020年8月10日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
My husband is the violinist and so is our daughter who told him about it. He started to read hers and decided to get his own. He just finished reading it and is starting over. He feels he will get even more the second time around. He has picked up his violin after more than 20 years without it and said he has learned a lot from this book.
