AbstractThis thesis examines the music and instructional method of the distinguished Spanish violist and pedagogue Emilio Mateu. Particular attention is given to his book La Viola: Iniciacon a la Musica. The author identifies the learning goals for each piece by comparing criteria to that outlined by Dr. Donald Hamann, a well-known American string pedagogue. The author concludes that these imaginative pieces and non-standard method should become a part of American string pedagogy.
