WIN 5 signed copies of ‘The Violin in 5ths’

A ground-breaking technique book for musicians, by Rodney Friend, revealing the secrets behind a teaching method on intonation and sound that he has developed and finessed.

Heifetz, Oistrakh, Stern, Menuhin, Milstein, Szeryng, Ricci, Rabin… their innate talent and outstanding skills made violin mastery seem natural and easy. As a young man, British violinist, concertmaster and Royal Academy of Music professor Rodney Friend had the privilege to collaborate with many of the great virtuosos of our time. During these encounters he observed the simplicity of their practice patterns and a tendency towards effortless posture and natural hand freedom. These observations became the cornerstones of a teaching method that he has developed and perfected over the past decades. Here, Rodney Friend shares his ideas on the development of intonation and sound with readers for the very first time.

Rodney Friend’s incredible insight and pedagogical findings will help to shape a future generation of violinists.
