(Music Sales America). A comprehensive and thorough book written by the former child prodigy. Each aspect of violin playing is broken down into tiny steps. A useful book for the beginner and advcanced player alike.
This valuable supplement has been written to present essential scales and scale studies for the beginning student. The scales are presented in various rhythms and patterns, including arpeggios. All of the various patterns presented can be used with each scale. The fingerings included present viable ways to approach the scales, but other fingerings can be explored. Various rhythms and bowings may also be applied to practicing the scales. All major scales are presented in two and three octave patterns. All minor scales are presented in three octave patterns. Chromatic scales of two and three octaves are also included. These scales can form an important part of any violin student's practice.

(Book). This guide is a must-have reference book to help all violin, viola and cello owners care for their instruments and bows. With education and guidance, any player can learn: what is necessary to get a stringed instrument into top condition for optimum sound and tone; routine maintenance practices; how to treat an instrument to ensure that it will provide a lifetime of quality playing and musical enjoyment; and much more. Includes helpful photos throughout.
(String Method). Introducing the Positions , a series widely used in classroom and private studio, represents a critical "next step" for string students. Position playing allows players to extend range beyond the basics and move into the ranks of intermediate and advanced ensemble groups. The most important positions vary for each instrument, and Whistler wisely introduces the most-used positions first in Volume 1, followed by the next most important in Volume 2. An irreplaceable component for every string student's training!
