The "prequel" to Barbara Barber's widely-used Scales for Advanced Violists is here! Scales for Young Violists is a user-friendly scale system which presents two-octave major, melodic minor, and harmonic minor scales with arpeggios. The first five Foundation Keys (C, D, E, F, G) introduce beginning double-stops in octaves, 3rds, and 6ths, remaining in first position. One-octave scales in double-stop octaves, 3rds, 6ths, and harmonics are presented in all twelve keys. Preparatory shifting exercises, bowing and rhythmic variants, a helpful circle of 5ths, and Progress Chart make this the perfect beginning scale book for every viola student.
