Supplemental String Method Books
A good example of the sort of method book you can expect to find here would be the Alfred Lucien Capet and Superior Bowing Technique Book. Part biography and part technical manual, it's a great resource for any violinist looking to learn more about bowing techniques. And the more you know about the theory, the better-prepared you'll be to experiment with your own bowing style and refine it - all part of the process of becoming the best musician you can be.
Another bowing-specific method book is the Alfred ASTA Orchestral Bowings and Routines Book, but the lineup of supplemental string method books doesn't stop there. For instance, check out the Alfred Swing Your Strings Volume 1 Book & CD, as well as the second volume after it. These materials are based on well-known Suzuki music training standards, but they put a fresh face on them by translating them into a wide variety of different musical styles. They're excellent books to add to your collection if you want to keep your skills as well-rounded as possible.
It only takes one look through this selection of supplemental string method books to see for yourself that not all method books are created equal. While the more common categories may get a bigger share of the spotlight, the specialty method books found here are worth a close look for any musician interested in adding some more dynamic learning to his or her musical career. If that sounds like you, then don't wait a moment longer to get started!
