Product description


"At its core, this text sheds considerable light on the pedagogical theories and practices of a prolific educator in the twentieth century Russian Violin School. Violin instructors will find Yankelevich's generous and patient approach to instruction highly engaging and insightful. His advocacy of a student-oriented approach, derived from contemporaneous research in psychology, physiology, pedagogy, and educational theory, is supplemented and reinforced by the observations of Glezarova and Grigoryev. Performers will find Yankelevich's lengthy essay on shifting positions insightful and applicable to current practice. The entire book, including the supplemental material, will be valuable for scholars of the Russian Violin School or of Russian music education more broadly." --Notes

About the Author

Considered one of the most important violin teachers in 20th century Russia, Yuri Yankelevich (1909 - 1973) taught at the Moscow Conservatory from 1936 to 1973. He contributed a significant amount of methodological work to the pedagogical literature and was known for his systematic and analytical approach. Yankelevich was an heir to the great traditions of the Russian violin school (later known as the Soviet violin school) and his students included over forty prize winners in international competitions. Masha Lankovsky (translator) studied the violin with Nelli Shkolnikova, one of Yankelevich's first students to receive international recognition. A graduate of Indiana University and the City University of New York she has written about the Russian Violin School for The Strad magazine and presented at the American String Teachers Association. Presently she teaches at the Conservatoire de Versailles in France.
