Kato Havas' Violin Pedagogy

February 20, 2019, 9:01 AM · A New Approach

Violin techniques are often categorized into left-hand and right-hand technique, where each technique is studied or discussed individually. From an objective point of view, the right hand / the bow arm, is reponsible for producing tone, varying dynamics, and creating rhythms and articulations, whereas the left hand is responsible for the accuracy of pitch and doing vibrato. Kato Havas, however, believes that in order for violin playing to become an expressive form of creative art, it requires a unifying control and co-ordination of all physical and mental aspects.

Her book, The Twelve Lesson Course, is a series of instructions and exercises for both beginners and advanced players to achieve what were presented in her book New Approach to Violin Playing, which aimed to eliminate all forms of obstacles and anxieties faced by violin players.
