  • July 16, 2019 Best scale book

    I had been searching for the best scale book for my students to use and I found this to be what I had been looking for. My main criteria is having the scales presented in a way that affords easy application of rhythm and bowing variants. This is more easily...

    accomplished with the variants already written out. Each scale has its own variants, which could also be used as a model for the other keys. As a bonus, this resource comes with spiral binding for easy use. Highly recommended!

    It has the scale and arpeggio in each key. Plus 3rds and various bowings. I fault it for not writing out all three forms of the minor scales.
