Hello, was wondering anyone could recommend a good book on scales. I'm looking for something that takes you through all the scales with progressing difficulty. If anyone has suggestions I would appreciate it!

Flesch is my favorite but it's not an easy book. Some of those scales are very challenging. Scales in fifths, octaves, harmonic chords......

Thanks for the suggestion. I had a look through that book and it seems great for me to eventually work through but is too advanced for me at the moment I think. I'll need to start with something more geared towards my level

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone use this scales book? There are images of a few pages on Amazon and it looks quite clean, simple (to start) and well organized:

https://www.amazon.com/Progressive-Scales-Violin-2nd-Matherly/dp/0988928019/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1533487779&sr=8-4&keywords=violin+scales+for+beginners&dpID=41WO59RAAnL&preST=_SX258_BO1,204,203,200_QL70_&dpSrc=srch

I'd love to hear of good beginner / intermediate alternatives to the fuzzy, 10th generation photocopies I've borrowed.

Thx,

Holly

Holly,

There are several "scale studies" on imslp.org (which also has almost all of the Wohlfahrt, Mazas, etc studies). This is the one I like:

For everyone's reference, in case you haven't found it, the following link is an index into a wealth of violin (mostly classical, etudes, etc.) sheet music.

Seems straight and simple enough. 🙂
