The Royal Conservatory of Music: Violin Technique and Etudes
Two volumes of Technique and Etudes (Preparatory
to 4 and 5 to 8) offer students level-appropriate exercises and a
musical context for technical mastery. These books include scales,
arpeggios, and double stops with recommended tempos and articulations,
along with Etudes that reflect a balanced selection of standard literature and contemporary compositions.
This essential technical study album introduces shifting gradually and easily, early in a young player's development. Students overcome the problems of string crossing and shifting to produce a smoother sound and greater variety of tonal shading. Exercises are included to help students prepare for the progressively leveled studies. Descriptive titles such as Up and Down the Ladder and Hide and Seek, combined with imaginative drawings, make technique fun for the young student.
