In The School of Agility, Eugene Levinson lays out a bass-fingering methodology that reflects a lifetime of experience obtained from performing and teaching. Levinson is currently Principal Bassist in the New York Philharmonic and Chairman of the Bass Department at the Juilliard School. His teaching method in this book focuses on developing fingerings that will improve rhythm, intonation, and fingerboard agility: Fingering is crucial to proper playing. Violinists and cellists always use each of the four strings on their instruments. Bass players, even when necessary, seldom do. Instead of crossing strings in fast passages, there was an inclination to employ extra shifts and jumps. This, in my opinion, may inhibit performing efficiency.
