About the Author
A great book that every expert who teaches should read. As an active performer and violin teacher, Fabian Rieser explores the aspects of pursuing excellence in both disciplines, and gives directions for a balanced interplay between them. Although the book focuses on the arts, the basic principles can also be useful in other fields of expertise (such as scientific academia etc).

This book is a brilliant exploration of how a mature artist passes on his or her knowledge and experience to students especially at the university level. I recommend it to all artists who are teaching in a setting along side traditionally trained teachers.

Teaching at the tertiary level clearly can have a critical impact on society, yet the experts hired to profess their expertise are precisely those given the least training in how to accomplish their job effectively. A careful study of this book would provide a huge step towards correcting this problem. It should be read by all those brought in from the professional world to share their expertise with students, no matter at what level they are teaching.
