String pedagogue Barbara Barber has developed an intonation system which teaches string players the layout of the fingerboard and takes the guesswork out of playing in tune. In Violin Fingerboard Geography, Volume 1, Finger Marches establish the 1st finger home base note on all four strings. Finger Pattern Exercises -- 12 color-coded patterns -- develop quick, precise action in the left hand without the need for fingerboard tapes. Fingerboard Geography Exercises teach note names, distances, and intervals for all the notes in 1st position. No Fear Shifting has students sailing effortlessly all the way to 8th position on their first day of shifting. Violin Fingerboard Geography, Volume 1, concludes with dozens of Practice Suggestions for pieces in the Suzuki Violin School, Volumes 1-4, but can be used as a daily warm-up routine and complements perfectly any beginning violin method. The book includes 4 pull-out color-coded Finger Pattern charts.

    I am an intermediate player and was interested in the idea of finger patterns after seeing some YouTube videos on that subject. I don't find this book extremely easy to use as I didn't start out in the Suzuki method, but I am gleaning what i can from...

    it. My instructor says she is not familiar with all of this, but she encouraged me to work on finger patterns as a way to facilitate fluidity and familiarization with the violin

    My son is learning with the Suzuki method and when he was in the erlier books this really helped him. He learned different types of bowings and rhythms outside of the piece.
