The Young Violinist's Tutor & Duet Book
William Crawford Honeyman (1845-1919) was a Scottish violinist who wrote a number of books related to violin playing and its construction. The Young Violinist's Tutor and Duet Book was originally published around 1890-1900 and was arranged as a harmonized duet for 2 violins. This book came at a time when advanced technique for violin playing by Spohr was firmly established in Britain but was wholly inadequate as a teaching tool for the young. Honeyman's tutor contains simple scales and progressive studies with very beautiful melodies harmonized as a duet.The book contains plenty of instructions for the teacher and the student and lays great emphasis on building the right technique for violin playing.
The 'Young Violinist's Tutor' is as relevant today as it was a century ago. There is a wide variety of teaching methods for violin available today, some of which are popular all over the world. Many of these methods although excellent during the early stages of violin playing, lack a consistent approach towards building technique.The problem becomes apparent once the student progresses towards pieces which demand technique like string crossing, shifting position in speed or different styles of bowing. Invariably the teacher has to complement these methods with additional books specifically for technique. All melodic exercises are arranged as a duet and the teacher can play along with the student during the lesson.There is enough material in this book which if pursued with diligence will enable the young violinist to acquire real maturity in the beautiful art of violin playing.
