    This is a great intro to playing 3 octave scales. The major and minor (both harmonic and melodic) scales are presented simply, but include practice measures for the important shifts. There's a small section addressing chromatic scales. Once the basic fingering and shifts are learned, there's a page...

    of variations of bowing and scale patterns for each scale, major and melodic. I appreciate the affordable pricing giving this a good value for 50 pages of accessible scale learning and development. Highly recommended!
