Kato Havas books have been translated in several languages but sometimes they are not easy to find. So in this page I'll tell you where you can find and buy Kato Havas books on the New Approach.

Kato Havas is a violin and viola teacher who developed a way to teach and play to prevent and eliminate physical injuries (tendonitis, tenosynovitis, bursitis etc.) and nerves, stage fright, related to string playing. All this improves the quality of playing. If you don't know this means, read more about Kato Havas and the Havas New Approach.

Some of these Kato Havas books can be bought online or off line in music shops, for others you'll have to contact the translator directly. When you contact them, let them know you found them through this website www.monicacuneo.com.
