About This Item

Barbara Barber's Scales for Advanced Violinists is more than just a scale book it’s a well-rounded practice tool for advancing and advanced violin players. In addition to presenting scales in all major and minor keys, the book integrates music theory into the scale routine.  It begins with the circle of fifths, showing key relationships and chord functions within the key of C. Then, as each scale variation is presented, it is given a name: melodic minor, tonic major, diminished 7th, etc - teaching not just notes, but also their functions within the key.

Also provided are practice suggestions for the scales and arpeggios and for double-stops, including fingered octaves. A progress chart is printed in the beginning of the book to help the student keep track of scales mastered.

This edition is for solo violin.  Written by Barbara Barber.  Published by Preludio Music, Inc., distributed by Alfred Music Publishing.

Asked On: 01/03/2019

Are the scales and arpeggios in 3 octaves, scales and arpeggios on one string and scales in thirds? Thank you!

SHAR Answer:

Hi Cheryl! This scale book features 3 octave scales and arpeggios and includes scales in broken thirds, as well. From the fingerings shown in the book, there does not appear to be any scales written up one string. Please let us know if you have any other questions!

Asked On: 03/28/2017

I need to update my Barbara Barber book - teaching a student who has a newer publication that is revised, I suppose. The cover of this one on sale is one I've had for over 15 years. I need the UPDATED version on Barbara's "Scales for the Advanced Violinist", although this is a very nice deal on this book! It is her FIRST publication. The only reason I am ordering the newer one is to see what is in it. I teach by SKYPE now and I need to see what my student is looking at.

SHAR Answer:

Hi Susan! It appears the images on the website were dated. This is the newer publication of the book and I have updated the images to show the new cover. You can preview the book on the product page and feel free to contact us at 1-800-248-7427 if you have any additional questions!
