Quick Overview

A fresh and innovative collection, created by experienced performer and teacher, Doris Gazda, High Tech for Strings, is designed to take young performers from basic technical competency to the more advanced levels of string technique. Using technical exercises in all areas of string instruction and a varied repertoire of performance pieces, some familiar classics and some special arrangements of folk material, the author has crafted a series that will systematically increase the playing proficiency of young string players and prepare them for the challenges of solo and ensemble playing. High Tech for Strings touches all bases in its unique mix of technical and musical instruction. Bowing, intervals, advanced positions, rhythm, ornaments and vibrato are among the topics that are covered. The musical piano accompaniments are by composer Kirt Mosier and will allow the book to be used as a solo repertoire collection, as well as in any ensemble configuration. High Tech for Strings is one of the most exciting string publications to be released in many years.
