Webinar: Scale Routines 1-11-2016: Scale Routines: Part 1
Submitted to community discussion.
Scales comprise the cornerstone of technique and repertoire practice. To gain the most from the arrangement of notes which comprise scale formulae, one needs to understand the goals for scale study, rationale for different fingering choices and a repertoire of bow variations that prepare technique for advanced repertoire. Beth and Laurie discuss the interactions of tone production, intonation and resonance, bow distribution and string crossings, aural awareness, and fingerboard geography in regard to scale study.
