Good scale book for young players
This scale book is great for young players for many reasons. One, it includes a fingering chart that the student fills in herself for every scale. Two, it starts off with the easier scales for violin (open string scales, two-octave G major) then works its way to the harder scales (F major, two-octave A major, and a few minor scales). Three, every scale has two short pieces after it that are in the same key as the scale. I think that using this book is a great way for young violin players to learn the various keys and finger positions. I wish that this book were published for viola (though I'm sure it probably will be soon) and that it had piano accompaniment for the songs, as they would make for decent recital pieces.
