  • November 10, 2007 Every violinist needs this book.

    I am already a more proficient player after working with this book for about a month. The combination of the exercises and supplementary bowing patterns guide enables the player to work on a variety of problems at once: finger patterns, positions, intonation, bowing--it's all here!

  • February 18, 2007 A classic text

    This book has been a classic for advanced students honing their skills in accurate, precise scale studies. Galamian's text is exhaustive, taking students through every possible scale and rhythmic variation, in 3 and 4 octaves. Not for the easily intimidated--but useful for the advanced student.
