A Practice Manual: Jacob Dont's TWENTY-FOUR STUDIES, Opus 37 (for solo violin) is designed for use with the Galamian edition of this work. The text provides specific practice objectives and practice procedures for each of the studies in Dont's Opus 37. This manual is intended to function as a supplement to studio instruction--not as a substitute for it. Aspects of technique which commonly present problems to most students are identified. Practice procedures designed to provide solutions to these problems are presented. The principles of practice incorporated in this manual can be applied in many examples from the etude literature for the violin. Through the transfer and re-application of principles of practice given in this text, the student will reinforce the learning of these concepts. With the guidance of a competent teacher, this manual should ultimately provide the student with a substantial repertoire of practice techniques. These concepts will provide a solid foundation for more advanced study.
