Sound Innovations: Sound Development for
Intermediate & Advanced String Orchestra
Warm-up Exercises for Tone and Technique
Sound Innovations: Sound Development emphasizes playing with a characteristic beautiful sound. The components of producing this sound are broken into four levels, consistent with the revolutionary Sound Innovations structure:
  • Sound Tone

The levels can be used in the order that is best for your students, as individual warm-ups, or as structured units.
