  • April 17, 2009 Good for semi-serious students

    I use this book a lot. Not as advanced or expensive as Flesch Scale book, but it has one, two and three octave scales with 3rds and arpeggios, and lots of rhythm exercises in the front. Some of the rhythm ex. are a bit hard to read- too smooshed together...

  • March 16, 2009 Essentials for Strings - Violin

    I'm a brand new violinist at the age of 55 and was worried I would have problems learning this "late in life". However, with the lessons in this book, I'm able to progress quite quickly and with a lot less trouble then I anticipated. It is easy to...

    follow and understand. I highly recommend it.

  • February 11, 2008 great choice of intermediate scalebook!

    Combines many pages of rhythms (similar to the Galamian scale book) and a handy reference section talking about bowstrokes and suggestions for practice with a great one, two, and three octave scale book (fingerings like Flesch). After this book, I put my kids in Flesch because this lacks doublestops and...

    octave scales and only handles a limited selection of arpeggios, but still, this is a great book. I used to write out one octave scales for students, use Brown's Two Octave Scales and Bowings, and then jump from that to Flesch, but this really is a viable alternative. Petty complaints- the way they write out the one octave scales of g-b makes it look like octaves, which can look a bit confusing for a young student; I like supplementing scales with doublestops as soon as possible- although there is a chorale section at the end, not as doublestop/octave oriented as the Brown 2 octave book.

  • June 21, 2006 Scales, bowings & rhythm in one book

    There is no one perfect scale book.... Flesch is too much information for the Intermediate student (and too crammed on the page). This book begins with a great section of rhythmic variations to apply to the scales (2 and 3 octave). The Intonation, Shifting, and Bowings pages are very helpful...

    . My only quibble is there needs to be more arpeggios (maybe this comes from my Flesch background). But those are easily added in the studio. I also really appreciate the layout, clean pages and lack of extraneous material. Plus it is more affordable than Flesch, for the Intermediate to advancing student. Until I write my own scale study book, this is the one I will recommend.
