Gaylord Yost

My father created the Yost System for Violin. I hold all copyrights for his work. Volkwein Brothers, Pittsburgh, PA, was the original publisher of these works and sold the rights to Columbia Pictures which in turn sold them to Alfred Music Co. Alfred Music reliquished their rights to me where they now rest. The following volumes are again available for purchase with a donation from each sale going to support Please mention when you order any of these books:
Studies in Pizzicato and Harmonics,
Exercises for Change of Position,
Scale and Arpeggio Studies,
Key to the Mastery of the Finger Board,
Key to the Mastery of Bowing
Bow and Finger Magic
Spivakovsky Way of Bowing
Key to the Mastery of Double-Stopping
Studies in Finger Action and Position Playing

The Yost Violin Methods in 3 volumes will be published later this year.
