The Lobko Method will increase your understanding of playing throughout the fingerboard in the most rational and comfortable way, facilitating the discovery of technical solutions even while sight reading. The method's progressive approach, brief yet comprehensive, will enable you to examine and revise the very way you handle a violin and bow. The roots of great success or unexplainable failure often lie in simple technical errors that have become habits.
