About the Author:

Murray Grodner is Professor Emeritus at the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University.

Review:

"Murray Grodner... has distilled more than 30 years of playing and teaching experience into an immensely approachable and useful book for aspiring and practising bassists... I thoroughly recommend this book to all teachers who want to keep learning, and players who like re-evaluating their playing. Its strength lies in the way it encourages us to help ourselves and supports us on our journey as lifelong learners." ―The Strad



"Murray Grodner’s book is a comprehensive and well-organized guide that is packed with common sense information. It reads easily and establishes a nice balance between printed musical excerpts and cogent verbal explanations. The essay section is especially enlightening and contains authoritative advice on many aspects of classical bass performance. A Double Bassist’s Guide to Refining Performance Practices is eminently sensible and informative, and serves as an excellent resource for classical bassists." ―Edwin Barker, Principal Bass, Boston Symphony Orchestra
