VC GIVEAWAY | Win of 1 of 5 Signed New Rodney Friend ‘Violin In 5ths’ Technique Books [ENTER]

Enter now to win 1 of 5 signed copies of British violin pedagogue Rodney Friend’s new book ‘The Violin in 5ths – Developing Intonation and Sound'

To help celebrate the international release of British violin pedagogue Rodney Friend’s new book ‘The Violin in 5ths – Developing Intonation and Sound’, The Violin Channel in conjunction with Beares Publishing is this week giving away 5 fresh-off-the-press personally-autographed copies.

The new 48-page technique workbook consists of warm-up exercises and practice patterns to aid violinists in the cultivation of advanced left-hand facility, intonation, vibrato and sound quality.

“One must understand that the fingers have to be positioned in 5ths in order to achieve better intonation, vibrato and facility …” Professor Friend has told The Violin Channel.

“If we do not understand thoroughly the different hand positions as demanded by different intervals, we will make playing the violin, which is already very difficult, even more difficult … but it does not have to be …” he has said.

“We can make it easier, by tuning the fingers in 5ths … this understanding will influence all other intervals."

Entries close: Wednesday 28th August, 2019.
