In this book the main issues of the violin playing in a somewhat frivolous tone, as well as basics of the violin teaching. Being guided by his own experience, also by the memory of generations, the author shed some light on adjacent matters, like mental state of the performer, his/her health and wholesomeness and, naturally, deep satisfaction of the listeners.
