Having studied violin privately in Vienna with Frantisek Ondricek and medicine at the University of Vienna, Demetrius Constantine Dounis had a unique perspective that joined violin technique with an understanding of human physiology. Though his work in violin pedagogy was exhaustive, Dounis’s legacy lives on thanks primarily to his focused study of the proper ergonomics of violin playing and his emphasis on the role of the brain, not the arms or the fingers, in proper violin technique.
