The book was written in July of 2007 as an effort to organize and codify my materials and playing approach for the purposes of teaching, for my own notes and research, and musical approach.  For some time I looked for a publisher for this encyclopedic method book, but ultimately to no avail.  So, it has sat dormant on my hard drive for the past nine years.  It has leaked out over the years, as I gave some copies to teachers, colleagues, and students for the purpose of feedback and editing.  So from time to time people do ask about it and request a copy.  Rather than have it remain unavailable, here it is, the original 2007 manuscript, which has been only slightly edited with regard to typo's and notation errors, but otherwise remains complete and unadulterated.
