Thank You Robert! I appreciate the opportunity to place the ad!

The Fingerboard Workbook Series Map the Violin for Good for many has been truly transformational.

Learning how to connect what pitches are on the printed page with how to hear them, feel them and see them...priceless!

I've used these books with my private students for over 20 years. It finally occurred to me to make them available to the public! I wouldn't have bothered - but they're so effective!

It's wonderful to have a place to share what I have to offer - for those budding violinists out there who need a bit of fingerboard de-mystification! Also for the teachers who visit who are looking for resources that produce results.

If anyone wants a closer look - I'm happy to email you a sampler. If you live in Albuquerque or Austin - feel free to stop by Robertson Violins or Blackerby Violins to see the books in person.

Smiles! Diane
