It is rare in music pedagogy that something truly revolutionary comes along. Progressive Repertoire is the first English language method for beginning Double Bass to incorporate the innovative division of the Bass fingerboard into six positions, developed by renowned French bassist Francois Rabbath in his three volume Nouvelle Technique de la Contrebasse. Mr. Vance has created a method that introduces these revolutionary ideas in a progressive manner using familiar folk and classical material to produce studies and pieces that will appeal to novice Basses of all ages. In addition, a Compact Disc is included with each of the primary books containing all the music performed by Francois Rabbath, with Elizabeth Azcona-Hartmark, piano.Progressive Repertoire for Double Bass will introduce American teachers and students to the most important techniques developed for the instrument.
