This exciting series of five starts with “Intonation” on 8th March, and continues with further sessions on 15th March, 22nd March, 29th March and 5th April. Other topics covered will be “Everything about Tone Production”, “How to set up the right arm and right hand”, “How to teach Vibrato”, and “Everything about the left hand action including shifting”.

It should be stressed that in every session, all other areas are necessarily included. It isn’t possible to deal with tone without mentioning the bow arm, and vice versa. So these headings should be treated only as rough guides to the contents of each session.

All the talks will take place at Primrose Hill Community Association, London NW1, from 2.30 to 5.30pm.
