First Position Scale Studies for the Violin
This book presents easy violin scale exercises and bowings on the G, D, A, F, B-flat, and E major scales. Useful as an introductory book for scales, this book is also helpful with building tone and exploring extended first position. The book begins with the G major scale and teaches basic slur patterns and easy rhythms. After exercises on the D and A scales, the book progresses to other keys, grouped by finger patterns. Rhythms are taught in 3/4, 4/4, and 6/8 timing. First Position Scales works well alongside Finger Exercises for the Violin, Book One. The book concludes with slow scale exercises for vibrato work and eighth-note studies for speed.
