About this Book:
      This book is a primer by the classic definition, a small book of elementary principles. In this book, the principles (the funadmental, primary, or general truths) are those principles on which a musician may reliably base a lifetime of playing. These principles will protect a musician from injury, promote the physical freedom and sensitivity for technical mastery, and secure the embodied intelligence that grounds musical power and subtlety. The principles in this primer are the elemental foundation of music education. Musicians teaching from these principles will see thier students thrive. Students studying and restudying these pages will find delight in their enhanced performance.
