Thanks you for the book suggestions!!!

Hi, in all the posts here have often been mentioned the book "Basics" by Simon Fisher and also, sometimes, Technical Fundamentals of the Soviet Masters. I bought myself the two for Christmas as I said I would find a way to have them before Christmas  since I wouldn't survive to wait longer ; )

  and they arrived today!!! You were all right, really REALLY good books, they are addictive... and everyone should have them (especially those who don't have a teacher or have a not that good teacher if this saddly happens sometimes) But even with a good teacher, they will be so useful!

Thanks for your advice!

Hi, Merry Chrismas or season greetings if you don't celebrate Christmas to all of you and also... I admit...  as an exuse to show you this christmas video : )  Hungarians don't just train good violinists... 

I am amazed by such achivments and congratulate the performers and teachers, especially that they all do this as amateurs for a hobby!


and here if you want to see how they train them + a "beach" show


Best whishes,


PS: don't show this to your kids if you don't want them to ask a doggie to Santa!!!
