The blues is an incredibly powerful form of music that creates an environment within which you, the soloist, can improvise easily and expressively. This one-of-a-kind book for violinists with its supportive backing tracks will provide you with technical, musical and stylistic tips designed to activate your imagination, fine-tune your right- and left-hand touch, and help you develop a uniquely individual sound. Includes 17 solos to demonstrate the styles of the great historic blues fiddlers, with bios on each.

I want to thank you for the special contribution you made to a very successful workshop. I especially appreciated the excellent performance you did on Sunday evening. Just great! Bravo and Brava!! I particularly appreciate your knowledge of musical styles from around the globe, your ability to demonstrate them authentically, and your effectiveness in sharing them with an audience. The presentations on Monday were excellent as well, with meaningful handouts and good connections with the participants. Thank you for a great kick-off for the week!

Julie, this Facebook is a miracle, because, of musical pedagogues, you are a Titaness, and I can’t believe I am speaking to someone of such talent who has authored books and thoughts that have guided me so profoundly in my entire life outlook … not just musically.
