                  students.

 

      2010, The Strad, “A Bluffer’s Guide to Teaching,” Vol. 121, Issue 1448 – Dec. 2010, 44-46.

The article offers guidelines in teaching a stringed instrument that one does not play. It is deemed important to consider how much knowledge is transferable between stringed instruments. It is advised to get hold of the instrument, get help from successful teachers, and on not to panic in facing the first lesson. One needs to have the right confidence to play the instrument.
