Format: Paperback
This book should be considered the best next thing to a tutor if one can't have one. It discribes things that most other books on violin don't teach. Like, describing the otions to make a vibrato, wheres other books sometimes don't even metion vibrato! Who better to be your teacher than the man who taught Wolfgang Mozart to play the violin when he was four? I highly recoment this.

HASH(0xa626fe40) out of 5 stars Wonderful Feb. 14 2006
By Richard D. Simon Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is simply a fantastic book! It is like having a music lesson from Leopold Mozart. Although I do not play the violin, reading and rereading this book has done more to improve my classical playing (woodwinds) than any other single activity (except of course practicing). It also gives an absolutely breathtaking view of Mozart's father's personality and musical tastes. This is a "must" read for all musicians. I rather suspect it is the oldest music instruction book still in print!

What a great treatise to have to exploring the history of violin technique. Mozart was already advanced for his time. What a great reference to music of that period, and for interpreting Mozart pieces!
