The Tibor Varga Viola Method “offers in condensed form a compound synthesis of viola playing “along with the entire complex of instrumental technique.” The professional violist, “through systematic study of the exercises [Vol. 1-7], will be given the opportunity to perfect his technique and to maintain it on a broad and solid basis. In addition, the book will help to resolve evident or indefinite technical problems. […] Last but not least this book addresses to pedagogues and professors as well […] Considering the autonomy of the present method, there are few limits to an individual shape of teaching, notwithstanding the exact system of the exercises.” (Tibor Varga)
