Original translation (H2P)
:
All Japanese children speak Japanese
Oh � why, Japanese children can all speak Japanese! The thought suddenly struck me with amazement. In fact, all children throughout the world speak their native tongues with the utmost fluency. Any and every Japanese child � all speak Japanese without difficulty. Does that not show a startling talent? How, by what means, does this come about? I had to control an impulse to shout my joy over this discovery.

Revised translation (H2PN)
:
Children Throughout Japan Speak Japanese 
�Ohh! Children everywhere in Japan are speaking Japanese!�I leaped up in astonishment. Each and every child speaks Japanese freely, and they do so without any difficulty whatsoever. Isn't this a marvelous ability? Why is this? How has this come to pass? I could barely suppress my impulse to run into the streets, shouting.

Orlando Cole & Lynn Harrell

For the first time, through the medium of digital recording, the skill and wisdom of two masters is focused on the cellist's bow-arm. Subtleties of a wide variety of bow-strokes are discussed and demonstrated using musical applications from the cello repertoire.

Orlando Cole was the founding cellist of the Curtis String Quartet. Teaching at Curtis and Temple University, Mr. Cole has had an enormous influence on two generations of cellists. In 1990 he was honored as "Teacher of the Year" by the American String Teacher's Association.

Lynn Harrell has achieved all that one might with the cello during the past 30 years. To his great renown as a virtuoso soloist and chamber music cellist, he has added his success as a teacher at both the University of Southern California and Juilliard. Recently, he has expanded his career to that of conducting and the directorship of the Royal Academy of Music in London.

Volume 1: A presentation of basic principles and the correction of common faults and tensions. A demonstration of their musical application is shown by a 9-year old student. At the close, Lynn Harrell performs the prelude from Bach Suite No. 3. (34 minutes)

Volume 2: Advanced level analysis using Variations Op. 3 by the celebrated violin pedagogue, Ottakar Sevcik. Includes discussion of tone colors, the production of beautiful sound, and artistic goals. (66 minutes)

Building Blocks of Violin Virtuosity Volume 2: Bowing Basics (Insights of Jascha Brodsky) - by Valerie Bobbett Gardner

Item# VG2DVD

$39.95

Out of Stock

The second volume of Valerie Bobbett Gardners' series The Building Blocks of Violin Virutosity covers bowing basics and how you can learn from the masters.

"Have you ever marveled at the enchanting and crystal-clear tone produced by Hillary Hahn and David Oistrakh? Find out how you can emulate these masters in this easy-to-follow, interactive Books & DVDs.

I wonder sometimes, "Is there anything more pleasurable than the beauty, brilliance and endless variety which results from the perfectly natural bow hold and its function?" All it takes to forever limit ones possibilities is simply the wrong bow hold. Through this, the wrist is forced to bend in the "wrong" direction, and pushing with the index finger replaces the natural weight of the arm. The sound is compromised, joints tend to lock, and seamless bow changes and smooth string crossings become almost impossible.
- Valerie Bobbett Gardner

This Books & DVDs, Before and After Brodsky, covers Bow Hold Observations, Steps to a Natural Bow Hold, Bow Manipulation Exercises. Thumb Position and Bow Hand Position, Bow Hand Support, Position and Function of Right Wrist, Bow Direction, Height of Right Arm, Upper-half Bows, Lower-half Bows: Placement and Stopped Bows, Stopped and Semi-Stopped Whole Bows, Bow Changes, Bow Changes at Frog, Bow Changes at Tip, and How to Practice Bow Changes.

�I enthusiastically recommend Valerie Gardner's excellent Books & DVDss. Essential technical skills are clearly explained and demonstrated by Mrs. Gardner and her students.� - Michael Avsharian, Shar Executive Vice President
