Violin Playing As I Teach It is a book written by renowned Hungarian violinist Leopold Auer. Auer was a well-known violinist but even more sought after as a music teacher. He counted several of the world's great violinists as his pupils and this volume sees the author outlining his teaching methods to students and fellow instructors.

As a teacher, Auer was known as an individual who emphasized a conceptual understanding of music over technical mastery. Violin Playing As I Teach It demonstrates the author's pedagogical preferences, however does not in any way ignore the technical components of playing the violin. Following a brief introductory section, the book presents chapters on how to properly hold the violin, tone production, and a detailed section of hints on bowing. Further technical instruction covers topics such as left hand techniques, double-stops, harmonics, and more. The book concludes with several chapters discussing more conceptual subjects, such as nuance and style in playing, and how to calm the nerves when performing.

Violin Playing As I Teach It provides readers with the rare opportunity to receive instruction from one of the most coveted violin teachers of all time. The book is written in a casual style, emphasizing content over style. Auer presents his methods in an easy to follow style that is within grasp of both beginning students and experienced teachers.

As an instructional guide to playing the violin, Leopold Auer's work is a grand success. There are few individuals with the combination of technical prowess and refined experience that the author enjoys, and readers should consider themselves fortunate to have the opportunity to read his work. This text is an accomplishment and is highly recommended.
