Blog Post "Kreutzer 42 Violin Études"
Marcos Vinicius Miranda dos Santos received his doctorate in violin performance at the University of Alabama. When Marcos won a national violin competition, he earned a scholarship to the University of Southern Mississippi to pursue a master’s degree in performance violin. Santos is a university professor in Brazil and Professor at Conservatório de Tatuíand and Sócio Proprietário at Bravo Academia de Música. The Kreutzer's article Marcos wrote is taken from his extended thesis about Kreutzer, demonstrating the practical applications of these études in teaching by linking them to specific examples from the violin repertoire.
