Finger Exercises for the Violin, Book One presents a series of exercises that train the first or second-year violinist's left hand in strength and agility in first position. With sections that focus on "high second finger", "low second finger", and "high third finger", these studies are a great way to build muscle memory and work on intonation. Each exercise focuses on a pattern that can be used to help your fingers feel less awkward in first position. If you want faster fingers on the violin, playing one or two of these finger exercises is a great way to build your technique and improve your finger speed. The book is useful for basic daily training that can work along with a method or repertoire. While not intended for a complete beginner, the exercises can be played by advanced-beginning students who know first position notes on all four strings. These exercises have distilled pure technique into short studies that can help improve your first-position playing in just a few minutes a day. This newly expanded edition has bowing and rhythm variations as well as a section on left-hand pizzicato! Play-Along files are available through links in the book.
