q Better Bowing Articulation: Free Mini Open-String Workouts for Viola, Book Two! - C. Harvey Publications

A Second Book of Open String Bow Workouts for Viola

About a month after I wrote Open String Bow Workouts for the Viola, Book One, back at the end of 2019, I got the first email asking for Book Two. As more and more people started asking for Book Two, I realized that I’d like a Book Two as well and I started mapping out what a second volume would look like. And of course we would offer a companion mini book of free bowing workouts for viola here on the blog!

It’s taken a little bit longer than I’d planned (apologies to everyone who got a January 2020 estimated release date!) but Open String Workouts for the Viola, Book Two is finally here!

Because Open String Bow Workouts for Viola, Book Two  focuses on articulation and bow control, these free studies work on some of the same skills that the book does: staccato, dynamics, double stop staccato, and spiccato.
