I am an orchestrator/composer/arranger for film and commercial music, and this book has assisted me in many ways. The best part of this book is that it maps out the information for teachers and students. Everything is very simple to understand. Diagrams/text are clear and concise, and the pages are easy to reference later on. Everything from the physics of string vibration, from phrasing/bowings, to pizzicato is covered. This is the one book you should get if you are interested in writing/teaching/learning strings.
Paired with Workbook, gives me new bowing exercises for some of my students who need fresh material to help improve their technique.
Awesome book. Great for beginning to more advanced musicians and for anyone looking to understand the concepts of orchestral bowing. I am learning a lot from this book!
