Sevcik, Opus 6

November 10, 2013 21:18

I am a huge fan of the works of Otakar Sevcik. I know that most aspiring violinists are familiar with his Opus' 1, 2, 7, 8 & 9, but I recently secured a copy of his Opus 6, I through VII. it is a violin course for "beginners". After so many years of struggling and trying to figure out how things are done, this "basic" course is what has been missing for me. I am so excited about it. I know that the Suzuki system is so loved and respected, however, I find it to be quite lacking, in my humble opinion. I feel that with Sevcik's Opus 6, I have been given a second chance to go back and learn things that I should have been shown as a younger player, but never knew existed. A solidifying of techniques in a thorough manner. I HIGHLY recommend this so-called "basic" course. Parts V and VI are fantastic. I'm sorry that some courses out there only promote a general making of a decent sound. Although I feel robbed, I also feel a personal renaissance! Thanks for letting me share!
