1 Reviews

Francois Rabbath is one of the most influential teachers of the double bass in the history of the instrument. This DVD is an award-winning serious endeavor, a 3.5 hour double sided disc with interviews, live performance footage, biomechanics animations, multiple camera angles that people can switch between as the DVD plays. It gives you a far more in-depth picture of a great artist performing than anything else ever produced.

It has been given rave reviews in all the bass mags and string mags (Bass Player, Double Bassist, Bass World, American String Teacher etc.) as well as USA Today and the Christian Science Monitor and called things like ' a must have' and 'tour de force' and 'raises the level of pedagogy for all string instruments.'

MY FIRST SIMANDL: FOR THE DEVELOPING DOUBLE-BASS STUDENT

click to see more

No reviews

My First Simandl preserves the original intent and musical/educational objectives that Franz Simandl set forth in his etude books New Method for the Double Bass, Vol. 1 and Thirty Etudes for the String Bass. Many of the exercises are exactly as they are in the original books. However, there are areas where the studies started at a level of difficulty, which made it unrealistic for use by young players. Consequently, some of the etudes in My First Simandl have been shortened in length or have had note values doubled. The studies have been arranged in progressive order, taking into account tonality, grade of difficulty and style. Rosen and Eckfeld have chosen studies that are considered to be the most important for student at the earlier stages of technical development. Included are duet exercises for the student and teacher – a proven approach to better learning!
