Violin Bow Technique DVD
(Twofold/Alfred, 2008)shapeimage_2

“…this collection gives a rare and brilliant glimpse into the sequential thought process of a very good teacher. A student of pedagogy will have a field day here tracing the careful development of bowing technique from an obvious master teacher.”
– Laurie Scott, University of Texas

Murphy has a knack of pinpointing the exact train of thought or muscle instruction that will unlock the secret of a particular bow stroke. After five minutes with his section on sautille bowings I felt a dramatic improvement…Fintan Murphy’s approach can’t fail to work magic.
– Catherine Nelson, The Strad

  1. Dear Sir, Is the DVD ROM entitled Violin Bow Technique available as a DVD Video format for playing on a DVD player in the UK ?
    Many Thanks..Stewart

    • Hi Stewart,
      Violin Bow Technique is software playable on any Windows system.

      The disks themselves are DVD-ROMs, ie. containing datafiles, rather than DVD movies, and there are no geographic restrictions on where they can be played, as it’s through a computer rather than a DVD player.

      You can purchase the disks from the Twofold website at https://twofold.com.au/sales/

      • Hello Fintan, Many thanks for your speedy reply. I have one of those Raspberry Pi micro computers costing only £ 30 Uk Pounds ! It runs on a special version of Linux Open Systems Software and I would need to know what is the Codec information please. It could be MPEG 2/3 or MPEG 4 for the video files. Perhaps you could enquire please of one of the production team ? This will enable me to make a correct decision. Are your other dvds of the same format ? I have been able to view some of your other video clips on your site…they look very impressive. Many thanks Stewart.
