Three-Octave Scales for the Violin, Book One, Learning the Scales


In stock

Discover a whole new way to learn scales!

There are plenty of good scale books already written. So rather than giving you yet another scale book, we did something different.

We wrote exercises to teach you the scales note by note and space by space.

Using a carefully planned series of exercises, this book teaches the notes and spaces in three-octave violin scales. Major, melodic minor, harmonic minor, and chromatic scales are included in the book.

After learning the scales, there are shifting studies, scales with guide notes, and exercises to help you play faster.

After practicing these exercises, your hand can have a much better grasp of where the notes are in each scale and how to reach those notes consistently and precisely.

With exercises for two complete sets of traditional fingerings as well as for a universal (across strings) fingering, this book has something for everyone!

By adding just one or two pages of this book to a daily warm-up routine, late-intermediate and early-advanced violinists can improve their technique and prepare for advanced repertoire!
