Artistry in Strings features over 200 songs, theory and rhythm exercises to help students quickly develop skills on their instrument. Special exercises called Swingercises! focus attention towards particular left-hand or right-hand concepts. This method offers two different approaches for the beginning bass student: the Low position book or the Mid position book, allowing teachers to begin their bass students in 4th position and move toward lower positions if they wish. Both piano and CD accompaniments are available as well as an informative Parent's Guide.
