Suggested Listening        

TONE: The tone that a musician achieves is probably the most elusive and abstract part of playing an instrument, yet it is also one of the most important qualities. (Who wants to sit through a performance if it's not pleasant to listen to?)

How do we develop a good tone? Feedback and good examples are of prime importance. One of the best ways to achieve this goal is to work with a private teacher who can play with and for the student. A second way is to listen to lots of performances and recordings. Below is a list of artists and recordings which have been highly recommended.

Have I made mistakes or left out important performers or recordings?? Please let me know and I will make the additions or corrections in future updates of this.
