About the Author

Jo Nardolillo has performed throughout the United States and in Europe, has commissioned, recorded, and given the world premieres of many new works, and is a founding member of the innovative new-music ensemble TangleTown Trio and the eclectic jazz ensemble Touche. She is the author of The Canon of Violin Literature (Scarecrow Press, 2011) and All Things Strings: An Illustrated Dictionary (Rowman & Littlefield, 2014). T. M. Larsen has created illustrations for Scarecrow Press and Rowman & Littlefield, Orchestra2001 (Philadelphia), InternationalOpus, Labyrinth Books, the Northwest Sinfonietta, Liberty Winds, the Spoleto Music Festival, the American Composer's Forum, and the Philadelphia Ballet Orchestra.


This is a clever and thorough collection of the aspects of teaching the advanced violin student, it is well written and illustrated, and is an easy-to-read reference for the teacher looking for that extra spark of knowledge or a simple reminder in a moment of uncertainty. * American Music Teacher *
Jo Nardolilo adds another valuable resource, surveying violin technique, combining tradition and innovation in one volume. Part of a series designed for the advanced player, it fills a niche for those who are now at professional levels. The first chapter addresses that most vexed question; how to achieve fine intonation. Extensive sections on practice strategies (another weighty conundrum), mastering various bowings, controlling vibrato, and interesting for me personally, small-hand technique and navigating high positions, all provide valuable insights. Further topics include tips on orchestral playing (both leading and as a team player), artistry, performance anxiety, auditioning and chamber music rehearsing. Zen philosophy, shifting techniques and improving basic skills in just 15 minutes a day will interest time-poor readers. Nardolilo's book is an indispensable resource for all serious players. * Stringendo *
